Re: The 787 and 9-abreast

One of the risks of increasing passenger space is the temptation for airlines to use it to squeeze in more passengers. Back when the 7E7 was announced, the Boeing claim was that the biggest passenger complaint was the desire for individual armrests. This was supposed to be accomplished with 8 abreas...

Re: UA accelerates 747-400 retirement

I know some of the UA FAs will be pleased by the 744 early retirement. The 744 reliability problems have been chronic for the last several years and the delays and cancellations cause chaos.

Re: Are PVG Delays Getting Worse?

With four long, parallel runways (5th is coming soon), the potential traffic it can handle is enormous. PVG is a little more limited than that. It has the problem that places like LAX, DFW and ATL have in that while they have 4 or more parallel runways, aircraft using the outer runways have to taxi...

Re: Should Boeing/Airbus Buy Engine Manufacturers?

Re: Motley Fool: Possible UA hub closures IAD/LAX

The Motley Fool comes out with articles about closing a UA hub about twice a year. De-hubbing either is unlikely. LAX is hardly a hub but since it is gate limited, there is value in holding as many gates as possible. IAD and ORD replaced CLE as the reliever hub for EWR. EWR and ORD are not too bad r...
