Re: Was B737-900ER a disappointment?

Did Boeing management view the 737-900ER as a disappointment, or were expectations modest at the beginning? Did they view it as a relatively low cost way to wring an extra $40-$50 billion out of the B737 Next Generation Program. 737-900ER : 447 orders from 4 primary customers 79 Alaska 136 United A...

Re: Continental EWR TATL routes

One of PMUA's first TATL adds (had they merged with US) in 2000 was IAD-CPH as well. Never happened.

CO's network were mainly run by D10s in the 1990s and followed by mainly 777, 767, 764, and 752...
