Where are you seeing UA completely out of CDG until March? UA suspened IAD, ORD, and SFO however we will continue to operate EWR-CDG.
Significant longhaul international cuts until for UA until March. CDG out completely!Jump to post
I’d expect UA to add over any one else with it being a Star hub. That being said, I don’t think any additions will happen for a while.Jump to post
Come to EWR and load outbound PTY then come back and make that statement Maybe the times years ago EWR-PTY ran with a 753, but I could never fathom 400 (!!!) bags on a 739! PTY before Covid was 350-400 bags on a daily basis. It’s not uncommon to have over 100 last minute gate checks on that flight....Jump to post
Why IAD - LOS over IAH - LOS? I wonder why they picked IAD over IAH.....Houston have much larger Nigerian than Washington, DC and not to worry about the oil business up or down just number of Nigerian want to go home or visit family, friends and connection.

That's a lot of capacity they are adding into CUN. I'd be surprised if some of those stuck.Jump to post

JetBlue winning that contract and “code sharing” the lift to Emirates was a complete joke.
United just announced that they extended MAX cancellations out of the schedule until June 4th.Jump to post
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 ...Jump to post
I’d imagine that when the 350s show up, their will be a new version of their Polaris seat. The seat will be 11 years old by that time.
Who knows, maybe even the reintroduction of Polaris first on select routes?
UA could add MSN-IAD nonstop service since (a) IAD is the only remaining UA hub that UA doesn't currently serve nonstop from MSN, (b) there is some government travel between MSN and DC with MSN being located in the capital city of Wisconsin, and (c) UA already serves IAD nonstop from ORD, CVG, CLE,...Jump to post
UA is really making a push to appeal to business travelers in smaller cities and towns. For years UA has ignored this market but is now realizing business travelers in smaller cities are part of the keys to DL success in the domestic market. UA is tackling this on 2 fronts upguaging aircraft but al...Jump to post
Spent many years flying the 757 and 767 You have to take great care when lowering the nosewheel after landing in the ‘75 It has a consistent tendency to slam down and you have to finesse it down carefully And unlike the 767 which has very nice, linear and powerful control in pitch the 757 has a sig...Jump to post

Correct me if I’m wrong, but my recollection is that Delta’s logo pre-merger was the Widget. And that after the merger the new logo was... the Widget, with some evolutionary changes to the colour palette. I fail to see how retaining and updating an existing logo with an evolved colour palette is go...Jump to post
A comment about T-9 and Star partners. Only last month Janet Lamkin the president of California for UA stated they would like a future T-9 to offer better connectivity with Star partners, so surely some will move in. I suspect the JV ones especially are on top of this list. Regarding the so-called ...Jump to post
The 737 Max 9 flights appear to mostly be replaced with B739's. However, UA1878 is using an A320 and UA740 is flown with a B738. Also, a 77W is scheduled to fly SFO-OGG as UA1273 later today. This will likely help with the canceling of the OGG-LAX flights when it flies back to SFO on Thursday. Belo...Jump to post
This amounts to moving the current NRT operation to HND in full. It's worth noting that they applied for 2 HNL-HND frequencies, so they do seem committed to serving HNL-Japan at least for the time being. I'd expect them to get 5 of their 6 requested frequencies (all but the 2nd HNL-HND frequency, w...Jump to post
United took 6 years, SWA is at 6 years, AA is at 5 years. There is something wrong with mechanics and their unions when they all take so long. All the other work groups got contracts relatively quickly. The only common denominator here is the mechanics. Especially when airlines are making record pr...Jump to post
Hawaiian has been wanting an additional HND slot for KOA for quite some time. They deserve it since they have acted in good faith. Hawaiian already has the slot to fly to KOA. In the second award proceeding, which opened up the daytime slots, HAL was the only one that applied for the nighttime slot...Jump to post
It'd be nice for Denver to get a smallllll Polaris lounge to supplement the international routes from Denver. Also, would love to see AC, and LH under the same terminal for seamless connections.
Great announcement for United.
I like it!
Perhaps a rebrand is on the horizon. Maybe I am an optimist.
39M N37507 shows scheduled SEABFI on 10Oct. I suspect this will be for another employee “delivery” flight, probably BFIIAH. Could be absolutely wrong, but methinks not. Methought correctly.

I’m about to get on a 767 to Geneva from EWR. The old BF seats I’m sure. Really wondering where those true Polaris 767’s are flying? It seems like most premium heavy TATL are 764’s? Do true Polaris 767’s ever fly from IAD? Yes, IAD does along with ORD, EWR, and IAH. They fly pretty much wherever a ...Jump to post
With N660UA being the only IPTE 763 current running the ORD>LHR route, how does UA sell this route vs. the new 763's? With only 183 seats vs. 214 for the two 763 configurations. They don’t sell first class anymore, so aircfract swaps shouldn’t ever be an issue. Seat map is loaded as a generic diamo...Jump to post

I just landed at EWR, I had to walk the length of the entire 3rd Y shaped concourse and saw one 764 after another boarding for European destinations.

He specifically called out poor wages and Alaska management in the video.
Maybe we should look at the work hours, conditions, and wages in commercial aviation.

I was told that the Airbuses have major corrosion issues as they get up in age, and simply weren’t built to last as some airlines want to ulilize them for.

I've heard upper management say ORD, EWR, or IAD to begin with. I am hoping they make an appearance on ORD-BRU/MUC/FRA first. But, it seems like UA is consolidated the remaining 3-cabin 767s in ORD, and to have consistent cabin offered across all destination longhaul from ORD, that those 787-10s go ...Jump to post
