Re: United Fleet, Network, and Discussion Thread - Q4 2021

With the 772 GE and 77W fleet running pretty much full bore (except for 1 each in HKG maint), I wouldn't expect N77012 to go into paint soon. The first couple weeks of December are low periods, maybe then or after the new year is more likely. Someone at Willis must have been reading this thread it ...

PDX is a better choice for London Heathrow service from American rather than San Francisco. It’s a AS hub that currently lacks service to London, that would perform better for AA with a better tie in with AS than SFO.

Is British Air bringing back PDX or is it permanently canceled?
