United's ORD-LIR Service Now Official

Wed Sep 07, 2005 5:00 am

No press release yet, but ORDLIR was loaded into the schedule.

Sa only service with a mainline A320. Starts December 17, ends 1APR.

ORDSJO or IADSJO don't look like they're coming back... for now.

I'm definitely going to be on this flight, probably sometime in January as LIR is less than an hour from Tamarindo, with tons of world-class surfing near by.

Thanks for the update. This means Liberia joins the small list of international airports served by all six cartel carriers. And to think that as recently as three yeras ago, the only service they had to the United States was Northwest's weekly flight to Minneapolis. This winter they have flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Miami, and Minneapolis.

Cartel airlines huh?

A group of firms that has entered into a collusive agreement to restrict output so as to increase prices and profits.

As an Econ major in college, I know what a cartel is, thank you.

As you may or may not know, "Cartel Carriers" is one of the many nicknames given to the "Big 6".
