Re: OAG Changes 6/21/2020:August Under Fire;AA Adds DFW-MYR;F9 Builds CVG;DL Drops LAS-LGB/PDX/SAN/SJC/SNA;UA Out of SMX

Good Morning Enilria, UA never made it in to SMX, was originally set to start June 4. SMX, like many other cities, lost all of their major carrier service a few years ago, now only served by Allegiant. Thru the 1990's and 2000's they had AA*, DL*, and UA* with over 20 flights per day. Was looking f...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

As a result UA has five AMS flights on 11 June, 2020: It seems like AMS gets quite a bit more of cargo traffic that other cities of similar or even larger size. I'm not familiar with the manufacturing scene around the Netherlands but is AMS some sort of central cargo staging region or is a lot of t...

Re: Updated: LATAM files for Bankruptcy

Well, not going to happen any longer. The IB-LA ship has sailed. Not necessarily; DL controls about 25% of LATAM. Through bankruptcy the debtors and/or owners / investors of the remaining shares may see more value with IB and AA as partners and may have the company go in that direction. ATL, AMS, a...

Re: Updated: LATAM files for Bankruptcy

This is why IB is such a valuable partner for LATAM. IB-LA enables LA to fly more to MAD. Plus the two together can drive more traffic than either could alone. Well, not going to happen any longer.

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

There has been zero official aircraft retirements, just long term storage of the 752 and 764’s. Not sure where everyone is getting this from There seems to be lots of airline / travel bloggers out there with a lot of time on their hands and not much else to write about. One was being interviewed on...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

This looks like the end for the 764s and PW757s. In an email I got earlier today. "Currently, we’ve parked 450 mainline aircraft and 300 United Express aircraft across 23 locations. Some of those planes were already slated for retirement, including our B767-400 and B757 PS fleets." Intere...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

^^^ I think that's some good analysis, though I still have hope that the recovery will come sooner. The number of people flying is already starting to pick up (not by a ton, but it's something). I agree that I think UA is being the most honest (if a little blunt) about the pain that's coming, where...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

Does anyone know the progress of the new United hangar at LAX? They broke ground on March 2019, and it was supposed to be finished this year. When I look at the satellite image on Google Maps, I don't see any new construction. Here is a link with more details about the project. https://www.lawa.org...

Re: Dubai Air Show 2019: Boeing Orders, announcements and discussion thread

I am in town for the Airshow. Historically, big orders here are announced here on Sunday. Sunday is the Monday of the Middle East. I was present during the 777X launch on a Sunday back in 2015. Disappointed it wasn’t able to fly in time to make the show this year. Very lackluster Boeing display this...

Re: Continental Micronesia Extended Routes

Considering there's no airline flying to GUM from S.E. Asia with the exception of PR from MNL. Getting somewhat off topic - but that's b/c the demand from SE Asia (outside of the Philippines) to Guam is minimal? Seriously, there's not even much tourism demand (b/c, well, why in the world someone fr...

Our Heritage in the Pacific - The Air Micronesia Story

Hafa Adai,

I recently came across this gem of aviation history on VHS and digitized. There is not a lot of CMI history out there, this offers a nice glimpse of the Air Mike startup and includes an interview with Bob Six.

Enjoy,

NonRev

Re: UA drops NRT-ICN; move 3 737 back to Mainland from Guam

I am wondering what impact the 3 A/C going back to the mainland mean to the Guam hub than the ICN-NRT route. 3 out of 11 frames is a decent cut in flying.... There will not be a flight impact other than ICN. The remaining fleet will be able to cover all other flights, albeit one or two exists fligh...

Re: UNITED, new NYC area outdoor advertising

Even before the merger I was a lot of Continental ads in NYC. It doesn't matter though, unless you live in lower Manhattan UA can't be a NYC contender because they don't serve JFK, have a handful of flights out of LGA, and EWR is not NYC, it is NJ/PA traffic. Most in certain parts of NYC, the rest ...

Re: Uzbekistan Airways 3573 GUM-NGO?

Thanks TWA! While there is a limited selection of aircraft at GUM, it is one of my favorite ramps for spotting. Frequent rain showers leave a reflective ramp with dramatic skies; and there is a great view. 777 was from last July/16; ATR was from March/16. -NonRevElite https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2...
