Re: United 757-200 hard landing at EWR

Its the insurance company which will make the call on repair. If it costs more to repair than the payment schedule (based on age/cycles/hours) then the hull will be paid off and scrapped by the insurance carrier. UA could always chose to NOT make a claim and repair the aircraft but I don't see that ...

The 77Ls also can act as cargo monsters on the route whereas the 359s are more limited, especially true if there are alternate airport issues. If there is any airline that is good at matching the a/c to a given route, its DL. They have good reasons for the routing.
