Re: Norwegian Flight Cancellations @ EWR

Apparently, and according to reputable sources, DY filed EWR as an alternate airport. Therefore, these flights to EWR were to be operated to JFK and not EWR according to their paperwork. How the Port and CBP allowed this fiasco to happen for all these months with erroneous paperwork is beyond me. Pe...

Re: What Has Oscar Munoz Accomplished During His Tenure At UA?

I think Oscar has 1 year left in his contract, and in my opinion, he walks away from UA at the end of his tenure. It's gonna be a mutual parting in my opinion - UA won't want him back and he won't come back. He will enjoy his retirement as a consultant somewhere in the service sector. UA needs a cha...

UA B747-400 in Bari, Italy (BRI/LIBD)

A millionaire's wedding in a sea side resort near Bari created the need to ferry over 400 guests to Italy from Newark. Being from near Bari myself, I have never seen an aircraft larger than the B757-200 in Bari. It must have been an amazing sight to see the B747-400 at the tiny airport. I didn't eve...

Re: United ends Interline Agreements with 5 Mideast Airlines

Definitely - EK service to EWR, and all the competition with the ME3 has helped catapult this decision. EK will now have a very tough time connecting customers from throughout the system to their EWR-ATH flight. This will set a death spiral for that service.
