Re: United Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

So, what you’re saying is; if I see a 763 seat map with a NEW Polaris seat map, it could still potentially be a “scheduled” old configuration? Or, I select a seat from an OLD configuration seat map that is actually a “scheduled” NEW Polaris configuration? Meaning, basically, the seat map I see is a...

Re: United goes double daily SFO-HKG

I noticed recently that United.com is selling connections beyond HKG to SE Asia on airlines in a different alliance (CX, HK Express, etc.) Transiting via HKG is actually the shortest possible flying time so its interesting that they are branching outside of *A. I thought they wanted to keep more of...

Re: United Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

Question: the fancy, sculpted and it bulkheads on the 77W, and the smaller version I’ve seen on the 2 767s I was on - were not on the 787-10. Instead just plain silver with a Polaris plaque. I’m assuming lost to budget cuts. SAD! Under the banner of CONSISTENCY - I have yet to fly a refurbished 772...

Hello jayunited, First, I actually didn’t mean to be critical of the EWR Polaris Lounge. It was meant purely as and observation and ultimately a question. My first 5 or 6 times at the EWR PL (Polaris Lounge) it was comfortably full of people. As for EWR UNITED Clubs. They are not asleep at the swit...

EWR-ICN is something that's being looked at.

Re: Why did CO choose EWR as their TPAC Gateway instead of IAH?

IAH is good for Mexico and Latin America, as well as some major trunk routes to Europe. A few years ago, UA tried a 2nd daily IAH-NRT. It didn't last long. IAH was the queen bee at CO with only 3 hubs. Its role has changed within the new United with 7 diverse hubs all around the country.

Re: DL, why no B77W?

Just based on DLs route structure, they dont need anything bigger than a 777/A359. Their fortress hubs arent big international cities like IAH and DFW are. Yeah the likes of MSP and DTW are large in their own right, but DL loves to offer frequency. No other US airline hub has 4+ dailies to AMS like...
