UA744 In Prague

Mon Nov 17, 2003 5:45 pm

I saw a United Airlines 747-400 in Prague Airport, Czech Republic on 15th Nov. According to UAL's timetable, Prague is not one of its scheduled destinations. Does anyone know why the 744 is there?

For an unknown reason the MAC flights now run through Prague.

Charlie,

What are MAC flights? Are they military charters?

Might the stop there have anything to do with the fact that LOT is now a part of the Star Alliance?

Correct


"Might the stop there have anything to do with the fact that LOT is now a part of the Star Alliance?"

No. These flights have nothing to do with the star alliance.

It might have something to do with Poland being part of the so-called Coalition of the so-called Willing. Which is kind of like the Star Alliance.

Just for Info:
Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic. The capital of Poland and LOT's hub is Warsaw.

ILoveORD,

Prague is in Czech Republic and some people believed that Prague is in Poland. I guess that it was funny.


I guess that is all,

BTW< i hope that some Prague spotter will take pictures. And also, I hope that US Army take these soldiers downtown. It is a great city, I know I lived there for 9 years.

This deals with the Iraq war situation, as they are in coalition with the united states. I gues the US war alliances were compared to Star.

WTF?...for gods sake please seek some help

"It might have something to do with Poland being part of the so-called Coalition of the so-called Willing. Which is kind of like the Star Alliance. "

Yes it does. Which is the exact reason why Southwest sends 737s to Warsaw. /sarcasm off

Anyone who thinks these flights are not MAC's needs to reconsider their psychological status
