Re: United Airlines Has Fake Values

If anyone is sent to remove a passenger from an airplane be assured that they are always, always actual police officers. Why some were in plainclothes in this situation is unknown, but they were Police officers, not "security guards." You should do some reading on the topic. These were NO...

Re: United Airlines Has Fake Values

You have to wonder out loud to yourself, how much did OM under estimate the importance of what happened last week to the United Brand? This is nearly a week later and still, article after article about nothing but negative press on the beleaguered airline. In this one, by the Huffington Post; Unite...

Re: United Airlines Has Fake Values

I respect your opinion, but I must say that there is a difference between 'wannabe mob rule' and not allowing police brutality to gain wide acceptance. Is slamming a man's face into an armrest because he refused to get off an aircraft a reasonable use of force? Certainly not. Especially considering...

Re: United Airlines Has Fake Values

Dao got off, ran back on, and when the officer told him to leave, Dao said "I'd rather go to jail than get off" and "Go ahead and drag me." Evidenced by the various videos on the internet. He broke a federal law and since United has no authority to physically remove someone, the...

Re: UA Pilot's Union Does Company a Solid

All this does is confirms that the UA culture is anti consumer and all about the company. I hope the general public gets to read what the pilots think because it will take them right back to the original Munoz ideology about this incident. At the very least, UA has a substantial amount of liability...

Re: UA Pilot's Union Does Company a Solid

The OPs link merely demonstrates that by cherry picking facts you can create almost any story line to support any agenda. The facts picked by the UA pilot union supports their view that UA is blameless and boarded customers should continue to be removed from planes to make room for crew. The exclud...

Re: UA Pilot's Union Does Company a Solid

Does anyone really care what ALPA pilots comments are? What, they waited to see which way the wind is blowing before they took a position? Are Republic's pilots part of ALPA? Their union should be the one commenting since it was THEIR plane. Why shouldn't the pilots make a comment about how unhappy...

Re: UA A350's

I agree 100% I cannot lie flat in United's current 787 Business class seat, I'm 6'4". An important note, for everyone, is that FAR 117 is a United States regulation, not world wide. So one would assume that somewhere someone looked at the average size of an American, I would hope. I can tell y...

Re: UA A350's

So to me it sounds like the FAR regulation should actually define what some of those terms mean. For example what does isolation from noise and disturbance mean? What db level is acceptable? Can white noise be used to suppress external noise? Forgive me now but some sweeping generalisations coming....

Re: UA A350's

Interestingly when FAR says lie flat do they define the pilot size? Not that I am aware. Below is a direct quote from the definitions section of the FAR 117 Document: Rest facility means a bunk or seat accommodation installed in an aircraft that provides a flightcrew member with a sleep opportunity...

Re: UA A350's

I understand part of the issue re: the A350 OH crew rest facility is noise, as it is adjacent to a galley area. Similar problem with the 787 OH rest facility with carts, plates, glasses and silverware clanging around a few feet below... not to mention FA conversation. I haven't heard anything regar...
