Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - 2019

It looks like LHR will be a 764 out of PDX based off the press release about the new suite refresh for that plane. I think they'll route the TYO plane via AMS. East coast-AMS-PDX-TYO-PDX-AMS-East coast. Except PDX-HND will be A332, PDX-AMS is A333. Correct, took PDX-AMS in April & it had been u...

Re: Why doesn’t UA fly an Airbus Widebody?

They have an order in for the Airbus A350 (forget what version) but deliveries don't start until 2022 I believe. With UA's high satisfaction level with the 787, it wouldn't surprise me if they cancelled that order if the savings on a 787 order would offset the very high penalty that Airbus would cha...

Which explains the HND-PDX flight being on the 332, I think we were wondering how it would route out of PDX, since HND has their only DL A-332 arrival & departure to/from PDX. DTW-LHR-PDX-HND-PDX-LHR-MSP for example Wouldn’t this mean LHR needs to go year-round daily? Or AMS goes from the A-333...
