RE: UA's "new" 2-cabin Int'l 763

I think the combined <acronym title="United Airlines (USA)">UA</acronym> will comb through the <acronym title="Newark - Liberty International (EWR / KEWR), USA - New Jersey">EWR</acronym> schedule and tweak it to maximize efficiencies.

RE: Iran Requires $5b To Replace Ageing Civilian Fleet

Any company that openly trades with Iran which does business in or has assets in the U.S. risks prosecution and asset seizure. The sanction regime is pretty comprehensive and whether folks agree with them or not, are intended to isolate Iran from the rest of the world. This is why Iran has resorted ...

Thanks for your reply Alasizon but fog was not an issue on 31 May nor any of the other mega delays I spotted. This seems to be tied into issues primarily out of <acronym title="Frankfurt am Main (Rhein-Main AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA</acronym> which causes the domino effect on later flights.
