Re: Upstate New York Thread - 2018

Speaking of airport renovations, someone recently posted this video of SYR renovations to Youtube and it has some footage of the aviation exhibit I was involved with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1Kbalzfw-Y Good video. SYR's renovations look really nice. It's too bad they didn't keep the histor...

Re: Skywest pursues Massena and Ogdensburg EAS

Something interesting (and perhaps somewhat telling) regarding United’s involvement is that when it came time to bid RJ’s flying for Presque Isle the bid was from United for UA* RJ service to Newark. And it’s been Commutair which has been flying it, not Skywest (who doesn’t fly UA* at EWR) nor Skyw...

Re: Air Canada Ending YYZ-MDT/ROC/SYR

So they are retiring the routes completely? Would it not make sense to just replace with CRJ 200s? Guess these markets won't support the upgauge to CRJ or even DH8. Right now, they have about 60-80 seats per day. It would have been nice to keep 1-2x CRJ or DH8. It was a nice option out of SYR to co...

I see that SYR-YYZ disappears from the schedule in November. Didn't search beyond. Can anyone confirm? They just added frequency earlier this year.

Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

I hope they're not waiting to finish the Pratt powered 777s before starting the GE-90 777s, the 224s fly some long routes and could use the new Polaris and PE refurbishments. It I'll be interesting how the 777 fleet utilization might change chatter the FA groups are kfinally merged. Think the Pratt...

Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

If they are sitting at the gate IAH and not having maint check performed, then indeed it's wasted time. Most likely they're towed away for checks. And they also provide spare capability and routing flexibility (IAH/IAD) and to cover if something breaks or is late. Of course, that's only if the airc...

Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

Regarding the older 763's, someone on one of the threads said that Kirby was not a fan and wanted to get new a/c to phase those out ASAP. Any truth to that rumor? That would certainly shut off any discussion on the lie flat 763's getting Polaris. Its well known the 763 fleet is getting old and havi...

If it is not Southwest, I can't see why they would be building it up this much. The only other thing that I can think of that would warrant this much build up is Europe service with Norwegian https://twitter.com/MegsNewsFlash/status/979807903954685953?s=20 Doesn't look like it based on this reporte...

Re: Upstate New York Thread - 2018

That is sad. I am glad to see so many E170/175's, but not one daily mainline flight? UA grows and then shrinks, and despite what they say about wanting to grow domestic capacity 5-6%, they don't seem to have their hearts in it. DL and AA both have mainline at SYR. At least there are no CR2's in the...

I think this is a common problem for all airports in NY state.

UA and OO turned down YNG when they had a SCASD grant for it. They definitely aren't going there without the grant money (which was subsequently squandered in a month by Aerodynamics Inc.) Yes, ORD-TOL was in the running - I think UA just decided that splitting such a weak market (in addition to th...

Re: Are Indian operations profitable for United Airlines?

A close friend of mine had to book a flight to BOM at the last minute. He had to do UA. AI EWR-BOM and AC YYZ-BOM are both sold out. However UA EWR-BOM has ~50 open seats. Definitely contradicts my prior assumption that AI wasn't well suited for EWR nonstop. I would imagine nearly all O/D use AI fr...
