Re: United and the new terminal at EWR

Well it does look nice! I'll give it that... That feels like a low number of gates for both..... That can't be right for either. AA uses like 7 and DL at least 5 probably more. UA putting certain mainline flights in the terminal will cause a headache & especially with no Monorail up and running...

Re: United Airlines nears order for over 100 widebody jets - Bloomberg News

From what remember seeing, the trip costs only favor the 767 on very short routes, like sub 3,000 miles. Either way, the slightly higher trip cost is easily offset just in the additional cargo hauled and then add in 30 more seats of revenue. The demand on the routes that UA flies the 763 can easily...
