Thank you for clarifying as the headline and discussion is misleading. So is this for revenue or non-revenue standby passengers?

jayunited I agree with your whole list except DXB. Sadly, with the US Government contract going to JetBlue on codeshare agreement, I don’t think any US carriers will be able to make that route work.

The US domestic market seems to be not very competitive when it comes to aspects alike having a young and fuel-efficient fleet.

Looks like one of the 3 daily BOS-SFO rotations becomes a lie-flat 757-200 on Oct 5. Nov 1 they all go to 757-200s. (Although united.com is showing 7 daily nonstops, which seems optimistic.)
Will that schedule hold? We'll find out in 3 months.
I'll be interested to see if they add more point to point routes like they did in summer with HHH/MYR types.

Myers, Jacksonville and Savannah Up to 14 addition...Jump to post

Just a way to shift taxable ticket fare revenue to untaxed surcharge revenue. The out-of-pocket cost for the customer likely stays the same. 99% of people will never notice their purchase price is structured differently. Less money for Uncle Sam, more money for Grizwald.Jump to post
Even if the product line doesn’t have a door option, is this the kind of thing where United could go to Safran and say “we want to build a Polaris Suite with a door based on the existing seat… figure it out.” Or are airlines like UA pretty constrained by the seat maker’s current offerings? United's...Jump to post
Considering premium seat products often only survive 10-years until the next generations are introduced, UA likely needs to start looking at Polaris-II soon if not already. I don’t know too much about the technical nature of the design of the seat, but is it realistic that United could come out wit...Jump to post

I assume this is referring to only the GE 77Es and not the PW 77Es. My immediate reaction was "wait, when did the fan blade issue get resolved? how did I miss that?" but a quick check of Flight Aware shows no PW 77Es moving since early April.Jump to post
