Re: Detroit ranked best connection hub in America by J. D. Power

I think naming Detroit the best connecting hub from this study is a bit of a stretch. I'm not saying that Detroit is not a good connecting hub, but this study was not ranking best airports to connect in. The study was ranking airports by passenger satisfaction. The six criteria included "termin...

Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

I’m about to get on a 767 to Geneva from EWR. The old BF seats I’m sure. Really wondering where those true Polaris 767’s are flying? It seems like most premium heavy TATL are 764’s? Do true Polaris 767’s ever fly from IAD? I was wondering myself if any destinations saw the Polaris 763's significant...

Wow! United is actually considering adding two banks to Dulles to make a total of six banks. Maybe a new mid-afternoon and mid-morning bank?

Based on today's schedule, IAD is now 4X B738 instead of a mix of B738 and MD-80. BWI is now only one daily MD-80 and the other flights are on B738.

Does anybody have figures on this? The fact that AI upgraded IAD to 77W shows that this route must be performing well. As said...

According to United's website the SFO-ZRH flight will get in at 10:10AM but is scheduled to depart for SFO before than at 9:50AM. Currently no other United flight to ZRH are on the 787. Maybe IAD-ZRH will go from 767 to 787 since IAD will become a 787 base in late October. It's possible that UA woul...
