Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

UA will be well served to put in an order for A220. A220-100 would help them increase 76 seaters and A220-300 would be the right aircraft to replace all the old A320/737-800s. Well, two problems: 2. UA hasn't shown any interest in operating anything that small with mainline costs. Under the assumpt...
