Some weeks ago Delta Airlines cut off some of their Pacific Routes, leaving ATL-Tokio as the only pacific route.
Delta is currently expanding its Huge Atlantic network...
Now, wait a second ... United is not doing good, right. I am a strong United fan but I think that there is a trend, a trend that said bye bye to PanAm & TWA. I think that Ual has followed a sequence of events that are similar to Pan Am's ... This is pan am's... (correct me if wrong)
(After becoming the worlds biggest airline, made it inefficient, problems began to appear and people stop flying the airline. Then they began to sell their routes (Pacific=>UA Atlantic=>DA South A=>AA) finally in 1991 Pan am declared bankrupcy.)
Is Delta (or any other carrier) waiting for UAl to sell the pacific routes for a small amount of money insted of building it up?
Also, do you think that my theory is correct (about the trend)?
Note: I always have some hope that my favourite airline will survive, but this economic recession, the loss of customers that black summer (employee strikes), USAir merger fail, Sept 11 ... all those are events made United lose money, cut traffic etc...
Go UAL & DAL 777s!
Post your opinions please...
