I’m surprised there is no DEN announcement. Also there is no official United Press Release yet so that could include route reductions. Why route reductions? United is growing and has the aircraft on property and on order to do so. My guess is they expected that because AA included its route reducti...Jump to post
This story almost feels 'planted' by SQ - maybe to outline new delay protocol? I've had several delays on SQ while living in SIN and never had any where near this level of service. They handled the delays well and better than the US3, but certainly not to the extent executed in the article/blog. Als...Jump to post
As a passenger can't we all see why this would be frustrating? Clearly there was a lack of good information as it took someone who clearly works for united to explain it in full detail to us. I am sure united didn't handle this as well as they could, and hopefully learned from the experience. You m...Jump to post
"Alright then folks... what color should we add into the mix?" "Delta just rolled out dark purple uniforms..." "Dark purple it is then!" The decision to include purple (and the other colors) is literally a years-long project. As noted, Premium Plus already wears the pu...Jump to post
People make mistakes. It boggles my mind that airline employees are not allow to mess up. That's all it was, a mistake - someone trying to do their best decision-making in a very short amount of pressure-filled time.The media (mainstream and social ) act as if this was some agent of the devil finall...Jump to post

A pretty scathing review of American Airline's 2Q 2018 earnings from The Motley Fool's Adam Levine-Weinberg yesterday. Not saying I agree or disagree with some of his more subjective conclusions, but he's objectively well versed on the industry: https://www.fool.com/investing/2018/07/30/american-ai...Jump to post
Has Norwegian officially acknowledged the end of SIN? Or just speculation?Jump to post

United is losing customers. Their service and employee treatment of paying passengers is awful. People are realizing other airlines are more customer friendly and as such United is losing passengers. I only flew United up until its merger and after that customer service is awful. They have cut back...Jump to post
Wow, stock price is over $81 at the moment. Wall Street has been very happy over the last 3 days. Nice to see UA's strategy starting to pay off.Jump to post
The market is happy. Stock up nearly 9% at the moment, nearing $80Jump to post
Also, Norwegian made a profit in 2 of 4 quarters last year which people seem oblivious to. Was RASK above CASK in those quarters? Or were the profitable quarters a result of selling off their liquidity (among other tactics)? It's obvious in these Q2 results that Norwegian is pushing PR spin (as all...Jump to post
United needs to stop waging war on its customers. And I am not talking about dragging people off planes, putting pets in the overheads, or maintaining a solid air of mediocrity. What United needs to do is create the illusion or a tangible perception that it is making strides in order to provide an ...Jump to post

Definitely a bonehead and very short-sighted move on the old UA's part. Luckily the current UA execs see the value in returning to JFK ...Jump to post

United proving yet again they can't compete in the Northeast. Shortsighted, much? UA is actually growing both of its Northeast hubs. EWR to handle more OD traffic (& shifting to almost entirely mainline eqp.), while IAD is to be used for more flow traffic. You can read about it here. http://www...Jump to post

Any idea why AA hasn't tried ORD-EZE/GRU?
Not sure if already mentioned here, but Norwegian Argentina's sole B737-800 is going back to Europe after being delivered in Argentina. People are speculating that Norwegian ARG will use A320neo instead. Weird to see the jet going back to Europe right after being delivered. Has there been any specu...Jump to post
[quote]The airline carried 7.5 million passengers in the first quarter, an increase of 12 per cent. The capacity growth was 36 per cent and the load factor was 84.5 per cent. Only 12% more pax on 39% capacity growth? That seems staggeringly low. If that's truly the case, talk about flooding the mark...Jump to post
Oscar needs to go. The excuses and "give us more time" explanations are long past. He has done very little besides collect a fat payday. Just more continuation of the co mess they have made of United. Absolute donkey manure. I’ve been here 23 years and Oscar has improved the moral and ope...Jump to post
I really like it!
Doesn't quite make up for LH's gaffe, but I will take this nice improvement of OS.
Well, I’m just going to say that no one should be suing anyone in this incident. United did nothing wrong and nor did the security agents of applying force. However, they should have done it without anything becoming bloody!! Lol okay then, i guess that settlement was pity money? Settlements aren't...Jump to post
