RE: Careless Comment By United Pilot In Media

I think that all this talk of the pilots NOT wanting to give back is a bit over blown. I have spoken to a number of pilots and Mechanics. The main issue is they do not want to give back without a formula for the pay to return to contract levels WHEN the company is back in good fincial health. I don'...

RE: LOT Shelved Corporate Id Re-design Plans

I liked the #3 the second reminds me too much of Lufthansa, although i do like #2. #1 does look like Delta in a way. I don't see the similarity in #3 to USAirways, but as a UA guy I'm kind of particial to a darker color sceme.

I was hoping that if the UA US merger went through more Star Alliance carriers would have come to PHL to take advantage of the new UA hub.

This may seem silly, but why doesn't Boeing or Airbus increasae the beam of a narrow body airplanes? I think it would allow for more cargo space, more seat comfort and larger overhead-bin space. Plus a larger wingbox would accomodate more fuel for greater range. Yet all narrow bodies seem it be the ...

The quietest engins I've come across are on the CRJ. The APU is louder on those planes than the engines. Many times they have snuck up to the gate on the Gate Agents in PHL, myself included, We didn't even know there was a plane at the gate.
