Well i got the info from a UA
employee, I didn't buy it at first ethier, so I asked another one, he is a captain on the 744 there. Basically what I stated was one of the major reasons for the Airbuses coming to United, if you all remember, UA
was going to just fly A320s within europe before announcing wether or not they were going to fly ethier airbus or boeing planes in the USA back in the day when they had 722s based out of LHR
. From what I was told the main problem came from the french, they have slot controlled airports or something? Hey, Im aware of the "heresay" of A.net, a lot of accurate and in-accurate info for sure! Non the less folks, this was more of a Contributing reason to the Airbus aircraft decesion, NOT THE ONE REASON! Also I dont recall UA
every being interested with Transcon with the A320 until late in the 90s, I thought they orrig... going to have 57s and 67s do that? Then they changed their minds... They seem nutorius for that!
