RE: Rumor: QR To Join Oneworld, September Announcement

I don't mean this to be rude or sarcastic, but what exactly makes <acronym title="Qatar Airways">QR</acronym> a good fit for <acronym title="Executive Airlines (USA)">OW</acronym>?

RE: UA: No Need For ORD Expansion

I find it baffling that United and American thinks that the airport needs no expansion. When there are greater than 15% (being very generous here) of flights not operating on time, that indicates a problem. I can see how they can disregard the need for runway (9C-27C) as the other 7 runways should b...

I'm not sure what those in Texas have against Chicago. It's a great city to be in and not to mention your other state based carriers hold major ops in the city. Surely there must be a reason...
