the UA press release states that they’re now the US airline with the most premium seats between NY/NJ and london. how far behind BA (and possibly VS) is UA? my assumption is that BA more than doubles UA’s count.Jump to post
new harbor (not the ferry harbor) at block island gets full on summer weekends, so a lot of guys will take their boats out solo thursday/friday to secure a spot. friends will fly in on saturday, and then they’ll all go back home on the boat.Jump to post
i think EWR-BLR would be a winner, no doubt. but SFO-BLR (and possibly even SJC-BLR) would be even better. california to BLR may be technically impossible with the 789, however. the LOPA for UA’s new 789 config leaked earlier in the week. it’s a little more Y-heavy than most expected, given that UA ...Jump to post

No sure, but with the dump of capacity into the market, i'm not surprised that they did. It's an enormous market especially when you consider that there are no *A flights from BOS to Asia so UA connects a lot of people to/from Asia via SFO.

UA just tweeted another teaser video, along with “out with the g(old), in with the blue.”
so yeah, no gold.

i could be wrong, but i believe the celtics use BED exclusively. they fly with DL.

there goes my theory that UA was delaying their A350 order (powered by RR) long enough so that UA could cancel the airbus order, but swap those XWB engines for the NMA engines to avoid penalties with RR.Jump to post

Is GON actively seeking scheduled air service? It has not had any in 15+ years.

each time there’s a rumor of a new UA INT’L route, i’m the fool who is convinced that it will be LAX-SGN (PDEW from LAX is much greater than SFO, which is why i think UA would operate the route from LAX). it now looks like VN will be flying SGN-LAX in the not-too-distant future, so i’ll try to stop ...Jump to post

it would be hilarious if OP worked for UA and this thread was just a massive clue about tomorrow’s purported “historic” int’l route announcement.
i think SGN makes sense because of the “historic” clue, and because the PDEW exists from LA. while SFO is UA’s pacific gateway, LAX-SGN would be my pick.Jump to post
i’m not trying to flame, but i don’t understand why the tribute at the gate was necessary. perhaps UA wanted to have their own tribute instead of sharing one with the entire airport at the statue? 41’s statue in IAH is fantastic and a much better location tham a gate for a single, central tribute.Jump to post

Looks like you missed the memo.
SY will get eaten alive on these low fare leisure routes. hopefully they cut the routes before it significantly affects their tricky bottom line.
EDIT: also, where did this JFK slot come from?
i hadn’t thought of it before, but the high-J LHR-SYD-JFK-LHR RTW route that others have suggested intrigues me.
fifth freedoms are an endangered species, but the HVF nature of the routes involved, combined with a low density aircraft necessitated by the routes makes sense inside my head.
