Re: How are regional airliners delivered to the other side of Atlantic?

I wonder how airlines in the Pacific ocean like Tahiti Airlines/ Aloha etc get their short range aircraft to and fro from the mainland. ATRs for Air Tahiti are routed through Asia, not America. Most of ATR are delivered this way : Toulouse (France) - Alexandria (Egypt) - Al Ain (UAE) - Chennai or N...

So, as of today, choices for A321 from Airbus are :

- A321 Neo
- A321 Neo LR
- A321 Neo XLR

So, United will have an Airbus fleet of A319 Ceo, A320 Ceo and A321 Neo XLR.

I took the same flight as yours, in October 1998. I also took N902TW. However, this is a 762ER and not a 762 non-ER. This aircraft was indeed a 762 non-ER, but transformed into ER later.
