Re: UA Acquisition of Pan Am's LHR Slots - Operations

We can’t forget that in 1984 as the ETOPS era had dawned, Boeing refused to sell 767ERs to Pan Am because of their finances. Boeing knew they couldn’t pay for the planes. Airbus came in and sold them A300s and A310s and even threw in a new livery for free. The only reason PA could make the payments...
