UAL's New Flight Between JFK And HK.

Mon Oct 09, 2000 10:32 pm

At the beginning of April 2001, United Airline will launch its non-stop flight between Hong Kong and New York JFK.

Since UA 800/801 have both been a major route in Asia linking JFK, NRT and HK, I would say this new route would be a great success!

Do you guys agree? Want some ideas from you lots!

I would say it will quite often be full flights. What do you guys think? Full flight from time to time?

Please feel free to express your opinion! Thanks!

Good luck!

Best wishes:
Desmond

The flight will be a huge bust.

Why?

Look at the flight number. The folks at JFK haven't forgot about the FIRST one.

777gk , if think what you say is really stupid. The flight 800 that scratch after JFK was a twa's flight, and do you think folks will say :' no way i'm not taking flight 800 because we are going to scratch !' ?!?!?

L'espace180, with all due respect, living in France you cannot truly understand where I am coming from. I live just under 1 hour from NYC, and I can see what people are thinking just by reading the newspaper. The general public associates the flight number 800 with the one that exploded over East Moriches in July 1996.

SHUT UP. There are over 20 different topics just like this all over this freaking board and it is so annoying. Do you think that there is even one person on this entier board who has not yet learned of United's new route bewtween New York and Hong Kong? You are wasting space on this board as well as time.

Even if you do have the right to speak, there's something in our country called "Consideration". I don;t know if they use that in Hong Kong, but its a very good way to get people to respect you.

I would say its better for someone to respect his own wordings than to ask someone to respect him. Dunno if this applies to you?

Anyway, I shall consider this to be a war soon and this wouldn't last very long since they are trying to delete our messages! OK? : )

Flight numbers aside, I don't think it will be as warmly recieved as the CO EWR-HKG flight. New Yorkers demand performance, they want their money's worth, with UA's ontime woes, I don't think it will take long for the NY travelling public to avoid these flights. UA also doesn't have the feed that CO has in NY. CO is the largest carrier in NYC, and can use the EWR hub to feed passengers to HKG. UA is seriously lacking in feeder service with a few flights to JFK from IAD, SFO, and ORD. Not what I'd call a serious threat. I'm looking forward to UA's JFK-HKG flight, becuase when CO's flight is full, I can non-rev on UA's.

It will be an unqualified success. There is plenty of demand for CO and UA.

UA is better known in Hong Kong than United.

Hey Stupid, say one more thing about HKG and I'll come over to what ever hole you live in and kick your butt out.

If United Airlines wants to talk about this service he can, if you dont like it get out.

I would think there's enough O & D traffic b/t the two cities that both CO's and UA's flights will be full.
