Re: United Airlines in London

Do the London-based FAs only fly a route that touches LHR at one end? Or could they fly a trip such as LHR-EWR-MXP-EWR-LHR or even other domestic routes before returning to LHR? Thanks. No LHR FAs only do trips that originate & terminate in LHR. They are not permitted to fly a route you mention...

Re: United Airlines in London

I see United is still one of the few (if not the only?) airline to still have overseas crew bases. London, Frankfurt, Narita and Guam if i'm not mistaken. So my question is, are ALL flights to and from these destinations, operated by based crew? For example are all flights ex-LHR operated by LHR ba...

Re: Why did Delta cut TATL flying from EWR?

[*] They left those routes to their partners (VS, KL, and AF) to concentrate on their TATL hub at JFK. Makes perfect sense to me. Not to nit-pick, but neither KL nor AF fly to EWR, however, VS indeed does. I think they just accepted the fact that EWR is a UA/Star Alliance fortress hub. Airlines are ...
