Interview w/ United Management

Thu Sep 13, 2018 5:29 pm

https://thepointsguy.com/news/how-unite ... a-leaders/

Lots of interesting/exciting information in this newly posted interview. It is hard for me to pick out the key points, because the article is full of them but:

1.) Expect “significant” investment to Dulles over the next few years
2.) The Mom can have 250 seats in a narrow-body configuration, as we understand it right now.
3.) Larger focus on used narrow-body aircraft vs. adding new 100 seat aircraft such as A220 & E2.
4.) We will finally be ONE airline come this October. (No split FA groups)

Perhaps I misread this, but the reference was to the NMA having narrowbody economics, not that it would actually BE a narrowbody (although I think it should be).

About a month ago I posted something about AA & UA still having merger issues compared to DL and somebody said it's been long enough and that's just an excuse. As you can see here, UA is still resolving merger stuff with FA's. As long as you can't truly run the company as one, especially something like flight crews, it creates a host of issues down stream. Not necessarily "bad" issues but if you can' do X, then you may not be able to do Y & Z which creates inefficiency, delays decisions you'd like to make, etc.

I just flew through IAD in July, and that terminal needs a of work. they need to add more seats and charging stations near the gates. Carpets need a re-fresh,IAD is my least favorite airport when it comes to UA's hubs. at the end of the day, i'm glad to see UA is investing in improving LAX and IAD.

I feel like they’ve done the paint and carpet approach at least once before at IAD. I’m hoping the next round is getting aligned w MWAA on a long term terminal plan.

It didn’t say 250 seats in a narrow body configuration it’s stated it would have the economics of a narrows body...

The interesting thing about the NMA is in a domestic configuration. It could have 250-plus seats on board. With narrow-body economics, that would be something we’d want to evaluate very carefully.

I LOVE the cancellations and competitive data center. It looks like something quite handy when it comes to putting those quarterly reports out.

5.) We are cancelling the hideous A350, although we expanded our order just for fun.

Cheers! :wave:
