Re: Why does UA fly the 757 to LHR?

Why not? Airlines need to use the proper planes that can seat the right amount of passengers on certain routes. It would be a bad move if UA flew all 777's on EWR-LHR, because they would fly too many seats for the market and they would lose a bit of money. Using a 752 or 763 is not bad if it is the ...
