Re: Sources: United ordering 50 A321 XLR

I wonder if they'll be able to install the articulating cargo loading system we have in all the other narrow-bodies. With the length of that airplane I would think it essential. I'm sure they'll never use or buy the cans like Air Canada uses. Strfyr51, the company has decided to remove the nesting ...

Re: Chicago Aviation Thread - 2019

United has been flying to St. Thomas seasonally for years out of O’Hare. Also last year was the first year St.Lucia was added. I’m sorry I don’t have the dates it operated. I don’t see it planned this year ( i only checked several dates though). St.Thomas does come back later this year.

Can they just change the leading digit on the 757-300 to 5 instead of 3? So A/C 3851 would become 5851. Or are the maintenance systems still used only able to use a three digit number on S-CO planes?
