Re: United Airlines honors late president at George Bush airport closing gate C41

i’m not trying to flame, but i don’t understand why the tribute at the gate was necessary. perhaps UA wanted to have their own tribute instead of sharing one with the entire airport at the statue? 41’s statue in IAH is fantastic and a much better location tham a gate for a single, central tribute. ...

Re: 737-800 tipping risk at deboarding?

It's not an issue on the -800...it's the 737-900 that needs a tail stand. AS has them in all stations and tries to mitigate their use by unloading the rear pit first to keep weight in the forward pit during deplaning. But at times, deplaning will be held for a minute until the agent is notified tha...
