WSJ is reporting this morning that the FAA is planning on the Max to not fly until 2020! That’s not what the article said, they quoted several anonymous sources that it “could” be 2020” before the tests are done it can be returned to service. No one really knows, but one thing is for sure is that B...Jump to post

One simple question please! Can someone shed any light or facts on: Can a 737MAX-10, with lie flat First, PE, E+ & tiny Y (or some other configuration with Lie Flat First...make a TATL route? Or only Transcontinental? The 737 Max 10 will have the least range of the Max Variants. No it’s not goi...Jump to post
So what's the question? It seems to be a vague way of leading into asking whether UA will pull out of PHL or PIT (or MDT, ABE, ERI, etc...). The answer is no. I would imagine that the PHL point of sale is comparatively weak for United in the same way that Delta is not strong in the Houston local ma...Jump to post
Not only did they want planes in a hurry, but due to timing they got low priced end of production run -200s. Sound familiar? Same thing they just did with the 739ceo and A321ceo.

Regarding Terminal B, the Port Authority announced they’re beginning the planning for replacing Terminal B with a new Terminal 2. https://corpinfo.panynj.gov/documents/Public-Process-Capital-Plan-Reassessment/ Moving all the terminals further West makes way for a new third parallel runway as was out...Jump to post

The drawing position of hte terminal seems odd to me though in relation to the new T1 - is that where the current Terminal A is? So you can actually see the EWR control tower just to the left of the new T2 in the rendering. Based on that, the new T2 occupies the footprint of Terminal A, the short t...Jump to post

Spice Girls, 2 become 1. I know it's bad, but this is the only one that sticks out in my mind. It was November 1997 and I was flying to San Francisco, I booked EWR-LAX-SFO on CO.

That's a good comment, so let's look at the numbers. From 1 Jan to 2012 until September 27, 2017(5.74 years) United toook delivery the 11 B737-800s they ordered after the merger and also 103 B737-900ER which average out to ~ 18 per year. Starting on 23. Apr. 2018 they have been taking delivery of t...Jump to post
That order finishes off the remaining CR7s; wonder if UA will send the CR5 into ASE or if the airport operating procedures will change to allow larger-span jets... Its not just about the airport, it's also aircraft performance. The performance and the larger premium cabin probably make the CRJ-550 ...Jump to post
I sometimes wonder if United is going to completely shed their feeder network and just concentrate on their large hubs. UAL just placed an order for 20 E175s along with options for 19 more. They might not be growing the regional feeder much but definitely not shedding it. Those are the 70 seat ERJ-...Jump to post
There will be some controversy with this move. Ali refused to serve his country, that will not sit well with veterans. Being a great boxer will not make up for that.

N181AN and N182AN are also in the desert and have RR engines, and they're newer (1999 build) than N26123. Maybe AA would be willing to offload one for the right price? Good Question, IDK but historically UA hasn't been about acquiring second hand 757s. They got 3 ex-HA 763 recently, and even that w...Jump to post
I think the A321XLR makes a ton of sense for UA to replace their 757s on Trans-Atlantic, Deep South America, Denver-Hawaii and Trans-cons.
Keep the 737-10 for domestic growth and or replace their oldest A320s which will hit 30 years of age in 2023.

Looking at the numbers it seems that CLE is doing a great job of recovering traffic Lost when they lost the CO/ UA hub. I think CLE can catch up to their peak 2000 numbers soon. That for instance compared to STL, where they’re barely at 50% of the traffic of the TWA days despite the WN growth. What’...Jump to post
B6 has never done well at TPA.

I have to say, I’ve never flown NK but I think they’re really changing their brand’s perception which combined with growing their network and adding larger A321s is a winning combination.

I don’t think it would be beneficial to anyone to deviate now from past practices of the FAA and EASA accepting each other’s certifications. Not with Captain tariffs in the White House. Airbus depends heavily on the US market. This seriously sounds like a threat - Do as the US says or we will cause...Jump to post
I hope some over the top posters take notice that the investigation is about FRAUD, not murder. With the result of the fraud leading to deaths.

Regarding EWR and Lounge space, since Polaris took over what was a former Unites club space they are short space for non Polaris United club flyers at EWR.

Hopefully Boeing will bring sales, I’m hoping for a UA order. If they order 88 190s/195s for

Just to add what’s already been mentioned: NYC has way more traffic to Asia, especially premium traffic. CO was pioneering the Polar routes which went North and over the Pole to reach Asia, making EWR an ideal location to connect East coast traffic to Asia. CO 772ERs had the performance for EWR- Asi...Jump to post
If that is correct, Boeing missed the 767 window of opportunity. 2027 For first 797 replacement aircraft becoming available is too far out, in today's competitive environment.

The MIA-LGW route was transferred to sister Texas air Corp carrier CO along with a DC-10. Eastern used the remaining DC-10s to operate MIA-EZE-SCL which switched to MIA-GIG-EZE.

Thanks for sharing, Eastern was my favorite Arline growing.

My take, If there were a viable business case for a US-Philippines nonstop UA would already by there from SFO. Right now UA only operates Guam-Manila with a 738.

I think I read that DL only got 5 of their 6 requests. What was #6? They got SEA, PDX, DTW, ATL, and HNL. They already do MSP and LAX. I don’t see what is missing.
