I don't see any US3 airline ordering 77X anytime soon. DL: already has the A350-900. I can see them taking A35K if they need a larger aircraft. AA: current plan is to replace 772s with 789s, and AA could also order 78Js. AA may not look for a 77W replacement until the early 2030s - who knows what a...Jump to post

Seeing as how Seville is in Spain and Newark is in New jersey.....well.
I ask because I believe we're all aware of UA's fondness for using the ERJ-145 for some pretty long routes.
That's a Flex, which doesn't have one. More space for seats. Which will become the standard configuration for the A321 very soon. The NX configuration is a better use of space and is similar to the -900ER/-9/-10 door configuration. I’m not so sure that’ll wind up being true. The NEO pushes toward b...Jump to post

It doesn't seem like it's worth the risk to remove pilots from the equation. Their salary is a relatively small component of the overall cost of a flight. Let's be really generous and assume a $300k average salary for a long-haul pilot. At 1000 hours of flying per year, that's $300/hour/pilot to fl...Jump to post

I would also say in some airports with longer taxi time it will save enough fuel to make it reasonable to retract the flaps. Gee, I like your screen-name!

Keep in mind, especially in the state of Florida and Southeast US, UA has the smallest presence of the US3's..

Delta completely owns 3 cities (ATL, DTW, MSP) and faces minimal competition in all 3. These cities all generate a healthy amount of corporate travel, and Delta charges high prices and can get those fares.

About delays or cancellations? Perhaps.
Hopefully Southwest will give their mechanics a contact by then.

Yup, Skywest used legacy XJT and ASA to gain more profitable routs for Skywest while pushing all of the less profitable 50 seat routs onto XJT. I worked there for nearly 20 years and watched a great company be torn apart by Skywest. Every time we made progress or get close to being profitable we wo...Jump to post

Buy that token why are Boeing still producing 737’s and 747’s designs which are considerably older?
A Jet Blue and Alaska merger certainly could lead to become a mega carrier as that merged carrier will certainly seek new hubs and routes. But I doubt if DOT will approve such a merger, they may not even approve a code share between them. And Southwest is the largest domestic airline and is certain...Jump to post
By definition, there are four (mainline) legacies: AA, DL, UA, AS. this seems to be more of a long-shot wishlist than a question requiring analysis...
