Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

DL made a smart move and picked up the 717s from AirTran/Southwest and will soon start replacing those with A220s. How is it that DL's ability to operate 100 seat category aircraft is better than's UAL's? Is DL's management better than UA's? Was it really a smart move to pick up relatively ineffici...

I wouldn't assume the A359s will completely replace the 777-200ERs. Something like ~20 of those -200ERs are ex-Continental planes that were delivered between 2010 and 2011; they're substantially newer than the ex-United aircraft. Note not all of the PMCO 777s are that new. 16 are 98-00, 2 are 02, a...
