It’s a curious experiment, as two airlines tried this in the past. Both CPAir Company Jet, (then CPAir Attaché) and Astoria Airlines tried an all premium cabin on the YYZ-YUL route. Both were unsuccessful. True, however they tried it in normal times, contrary to now and AC already has the fleet. Ti...Jump to post

The comments here criticising the unions are hilarious. Everyone is just supposed to accept a wage that is unrealistically low?

I was looking at Flight Radar and Emirates 412 (Dubai-Sydney) seems to have suddenly turned off track and headed southwest towards the Cocos Islands. It's not descending, so it seems pretty odd.

IIRC it took forever to deplane the pax because none of UA's jetways at DCA could reach a DC-10 door, and needless to say they didn't have widebody-capable airstairs there either; I believe they had to drive a widebody airstair over from either IAD or BWI, and I believe baggage belts, etc. too.

as far as I knew United never used DC-10's on schedules to Heathrow, when they started ops in April 1991 it was mainly 747s 100, 200's and SP along with 767s and 727s for European flights. That's what I thought too, until I saw the picture. Looking at the LHR-LGW website it appears on the photo dat...Jump to post

Here, we have one of their DC-10-30 at LHR in July 1991. Was it a one off? Was it related to their arrival on the market? I don't know.
How often did UA fly their DC-10s into Sydney. I don't know right now. However I have three questions regarding UA's eight DC-10-30s/-30CF - Since they were mostly a domestic airline, why did they began acquiring DC-10-30s back in 1984 with the three former Laker's? - In 1986, they added four forme...Jump to post
United’s last DC-10-10 delivery, N1848U, was a -10CF for the civil reserve air fleet (CRAF) Indeed, and their last DC-10 to join the fleet was N1849U in March 1989 coming from DL. UA, contrary to the other large customer for the type (AA) only added that single second-hand series 10. 1145073,2080833Jump to post
