Would be great to see UA create a focus city in either TPA or MCO. Glad to see UA expanding LAX again. United was the only airline I would choose out of LAX in the 1990s and 2000s. It is too bad they gave up gates at LAX. We used to have a mini hub in Orlando at the time we had big plans for Orland...Jump to post
It’s amazing how many want to stick a fork in the “ancient” 777A model but seemingly gloss over the fact they have 757RR that are older and need replacement but instead, somehow age in reverse on this site and constantly billed as “pretty new”.Jump to post
With United back at JFK and the fact that they have a major hub at EWR has made me wonder what there operations where like at those two airports back in the 80s and 90s and really up until early/mid 2000s. Where these airports considered hubs? I know that United flew to LHR and NRT from both for ye...Jump to post
I still think to this day one of the best most opportunistic plays was United’s PanAm Pacific acquisition. Unlike some other mergers and acquisitions, this one returned a lot of value for many years thereafter and gave them the edge in the Pacific they still hold today (notwithstanding the pandemic...Jump to post
[photoid][/photoid] Why would they remove AVOD? Because the 77A doesn't have AVOD in Y. That's because they didn't have them before the conversions, the had the tvs over the aisle. Actually only the 6 domestic ones N210UA-N215UA had TVs. The rest had nose to tail AVOD and for some stupid reason they...Jump to post
AA has an abundance of aircraft at the moment, AA certainly does not have an abundance of narrowbodies currently. I have identified the location on the field but its too complicated to add an image here (I have not posted on this site for a long time and so I'm out of date with how this works). If ...Jump to post
I thought the Mexican AF 787 was being sold as the New Mexican President didn’t want it?Jump to post
Neither were considered “hubs” but they had a breath of flights from each that went to other non hubs. Usually big business markets domestically or internationally (SEA, MIA, LHR, etc)
UA traditionally didn’t have a huge NY presence or huge feeder operation.
Took cockpit a little bit too literallyJump to post
It is as others have noted an engine, not an airframe issue. Additionally, airlines don’t usually make a complicated fleet decision which they have to live with for 25-30 years because they are “pissed.” At least I hope not . . . The cowlings are Boeing's design. This issue as presented by jayunite...Jump to post
Not so fast. The A359 is closer in size to the 78J than 789. It’s payload range unmatched by 789. It’s per seat costs are a bit less on the longer sectors. There is a simple upguage path to A35K if that becomes a necessity for 77W replacements. Risk mitigation wise, it’s a huge step to diversificat...Jump to post
Now make wide body engines again. 787NG with only PW power like how GE weasled their way onto the 747-8 and 777-300ERJump to post
This may or may not be relevant, but any idea if anyone will buy up the remaining ex-DL/NW 744s? All but N675NW and N676NW are being scrapped N662US, N666US, and N669US-N676NW are stored as per planespotters. Page was updated around this year. They’re “stored” but they’re being gutted and won’t fly...Jump to post
All but N675NW and N676NW are being scrapped A couple of them actually received the Nitrogen Generation System (NGS) mod. I suppose it was those planes. They aren't scrapped because both of them are still technically leased. I'm not sure why the leases can't be broken. I suspect because of their ag...Jump to post
I think these were missed a few weeks ago, and not technically active DL fleet, as they are being converted to cargo flying for USA Jet. Right now the total is up to 9 aircraft now MD88 978 N978DL ferried BYH-DHN on 3/3/21 MD88 966 N972DL ferried BYH-DHN on 3/22/21 MD88 972 N972DL ferried BYH-DHN o...Jump to post
There’s no way (I’ll regret saying this later lol) that FX would pay all that $$$ for such a low feedstock of 77Ls as other posters have stated. The MD-10 program would like to discuss this with you. :stirthepot: (I know there was already a DC-10 freighter conversion program and the MD-10 program w...Jump to post

They just had their livery updated, no need for another update yet again.
Have had several packages shipped via USPS and 5X and FX that have taken far longer than they should’ve. Lack of updates as well for several days on some of themJump to post

Are UA planning to retire any of the early delivery 737-800s? I would think that the older A320 retirements would be a higher priority I don't disagree. The A320s and the A319's for the most part date back to a 1992 order (as Boeing had no 737 model then on the table capable of completing transcont...Jump to post
Wow, I'd never thought this would happen before Delta\SkyWest returned with the SLC service, or even LAX. Good for ACV. But given how often ACV has diversions due to the coastal fog, I wonder if they'd fly all the way back to PHX like AA\Mesa flights do at MRY or if they'd go to SMF\SFO\SJC or some...Jump to post
I saw this plane at TPA's south Airborne hangar around two years ago. If it has been at SWF that long, it must have flown to NY right after its stay in Tampa. Its last flight was on 14 July 2019 from Newark to Stewart via a 50 min stop at Washington IAD. It was flown by TAG Aviation, who are the ac...Jump to post
This has probably been discussed before, but why did United ever order the A350? They have all 3 787 models and they have very new 777's. Why add the costs and complexity of another aircraft type when you already have young aircraft that can cover all of the missions of the A350? The Untied A350 or...Jump to post
There's a potential for some of these to get converted to freighters, BCF or BDSF. But I agree that there is a zero chance of re-engining a 15 year old 744 Well, they did it for the DC-8. Never say never. The DC-8 was also still in production at the time. The same applied to the 727, 737, a320 and ...Jump to post
