It is really a tight bid:
American may not have the best bid from ORD because United already has the routes plugged up. They should shift the proposal to SJC and they might have a really good change.
Delta has a good bid and as of now, I would tend to think that they have the strongest pax bid.
UPS does have a very strong support among congress and the Teamsters. But, UPS already flies throughout that part of the world through a hub in Hong Kong. Maybe its time to let someone else have a chance.
I really think that they all have very strong bids when they are broken down. As to when the award will come down, who knows?
