Is UA no longer operating non-stop EWR-DUS? ITA Matrix shows it, but I can't find it on United's site... And for anyone else interested in this route, LH no longer operates it and has moved EW to cover in its place. Not for almost 20 years... IIRC it went away not long after 9/11. Hmmm...I thought ...

How frequent is damage to airplanes being built at Boeing? I know of two examples currently, where delivery is delayed as “in production” damage is being fixed. And I don’t mean bulletholes. I’m guessing LN7316, N37510 for UA, is one of them as it finally flew for first time 3Jan. N27511, 22 frames...
