The linked articles read to me that Southwest is looking ahead to the long term, that realize they're approaching the limit of the number of markets that can support a 2500 nm 150 seat aircraft, and realize to grow they're going to need to introduce another fleet type to continue growing into new ma...Jump to post
If built-in screens get added to seats (I hope they don't) I hope there's still a mechanism to hold my device on the seat in front of me.

I could imagine values for 737-800 must have gone up due to a/c shortness and it would be a good moment to sell as many possible and then await Max deliveries for the S20 season and benefit again from Boeing's compensation discounts on future deliveries ? It's amazing to me that people think the ti...Jump to post

Interesting thing from the winter schedule: It looks like ORD-LHR drops to 2x daily on MTWF from Jan 10 - Jan 31 and also on Feb 4. I don't recall ORD-LHR being anything other than 3x daily, even when other markets have seasonal suspensions or drop to less-than-daily service. Which of the three rota...Jump to post
So, my questions are: by any chance were the windows moved for the 550? And the other is, are those First Class seats a new seat design for UA? The CRJ-550 is a CRJ-700 with different papers – the floor in both frames is slightly lower than the CRJ-200 to get the windows in the right place. This is...Jump to post

Also, the T1 widebody gates work for 767s but not so well for the larger spans of the 787s so if they bring in the 787 they won't be able to use some of the adjacent gates. So, I don't think we will see UA 787s until the new Satellite 1 is operational. Counter argument: The 787s have a slightly sma...Jump to post
Also, why no 787's at ORD and will this change? A few reasons: ⋅ United tries to concentrate specific longhaul fleets at specific hubs for reliability reasons. ⋅ The 789s range isn't needed for any routes out of ORD but is needed for routes out of IAH, LAX, and SFO. ⋅ ...Jump to post

A little perspective here, ORD still has more nonstops to Tokyo ( HND and NRT ) than any other US airport other than HNL and LAX.

Why would they arbitrarily and secretly punish their customers? There's no benefit to be had from doing so so no reason for them to spend developer time building such a thing.Jump to post
