Question thats on topic but a little not too. For UA flights to FRA for transit, are Americans allowed to still go through FRA or is that out? I would say yes, since FRA have international transit area in which you do not enter Germany/EU Yes, if you have a confirmed onward ticket for which you hol...Jump to post
BTW my dream DFW redo would be to tunnel International Parkway, build 1 mile long multi story building right over it with gates on all sides. parking, arrival and departure levels, TSA screening area and run an MCO like people mover right down the middle inside.

The forms appear to only be for flights coming into NY directly from the quarantine states; they ask you to fill it out online. When you disembark, you have to show the electronic confirmation or fill out the paper forms at the gate. And the problem is that passengers can and do travel via intermed...Jump to post

Just curious....where might UA secure gates at JFK to support that many flights?

Btw, one of the united slides is just devasting for AA. They are showing that their capacity as % of 2019 is 12% but their revenue is 13% (buoyed by cargo I'm sure) DL is at 15% and 12% AA is at 22% and 11% so AA flies far and away the most capacity of the big 3 and had the lowest revenue. That is ...Jump to post
These standards were agreed to at ICAO in 2016, which then require transposition into national regulations.

The issue is overflying every major partner hub on the way there. LHR/AMS/FRA.. In addition, it's hard to build an aircraft rotation that would have the aircraft back to the hub within 24 hours. One needs a shorter flight or something in other geographies to balance and ensure maximum aircraft util...Jump to post

A quick (and hopefully gentle) reminder from the vocabulary police:
Inter = between, e.g., inter-island is between islands
Intra = within, e.g., intra-city is within a city
What we're talking about here is intra-mainland service

600 million vs 2billion loss at UA DL makes significantly more profits in good times and far reduced losses in bad I’m amazed how they do this Careful with that comparison.

Really? I've never seen omissions of gate "13" in terminals. The US isn't superstitious about numbers... in the way certain Asian countries are. Unless... are you remarking on the fact that there aren't a lot of US Airports, with multiple terminals that have 12+ gates each? Many U.S. airp...Jump to post
I think the reason the rivalry has persisted for so long is that they both had a successful response to deregulation. Great point.

I'm unfamiliar with what made American different, but this memoir is worth a read. By American's general counsel, covers 9/11 through merger.

One should also consider geography. oneworld and SkyTeam hubs tend to be farther west than Star Alliance hubs, so American and Delta have a greater incentive to fly to partner hubs, whereas United would therefore be more inclined to fly directly to destinations west of Germany.Jump to post
Seems like I read a PR every week about an airline running an engine or flight on biofuel, going back years. Has anything meaningful actually happened?
