[b]lAlso, VX ending PDX-LAX was a shock. They said that the PDX-LAX route was too competitive for them, but whenever I was on a VX flight from PDX to LAX, it was always 95-100% full. Just because a flight is full doesn’t mean it’s profitable. How many flights did we all take in the 2000s that were ...Jump to post

Huh? The 777As are flying daily flights on some of the longest "domestic" routes. UA is the #1 carrier to the islands, so why would they suddenly dump a bunch of flights for seasonal routes when perfectly capable widebodies will be in the fleet to replace them? Because "perfectly cap...Jump to post

Afaik, the 19 UA 77As will be replaced by 38 739s. It's the sad truth. The 739s can't fly ORD-HNL for example... When UA retired the DC-10 and 747 classic, it had no replacement to fill the void. The 777 may have been created and ordered for that purpose, but ended up being used exclusively for int...Jump to post
Just put up some damned lighted X's at the ends of these taxiways and call it good. Taxiway landings are a serious issue and yet they keep happening. Happened at SEA a few years ago, Harrison Ford had a close call at SNA a few months ago, and now this incident at SFO could have ended horrifically. P...Jump to post

UA would use some popular anime series/character (ie, Pretty Cure and Aino Megumi/Cure Lovely) as a promotion to restore UA's image and faith, similarly to how Toyota used Hatsune Miku, a popular Vocaloid character (along with Rin and Len Kagamine), as a promotion for their 2011 Corolla, as well as...Jump to post
Considering that their counterparts in United, Delta, Continental, American and the like have gone for one or more radical changes in the look and feel of their brand over the last many years, would PanAm have caught the bug too? Technically, Continental still hasn't updated their branding since th...Jump to post
Of course they fear for their jobs, they're way overpaid and that is going to come to an end. I can understand they're upset, but that doesn't mean they're right. They've been spoiled for years, ever since the beginning of their carreer. Clearly you've never flown for or known anyone that flew for ...Jump to post
