Over the past 15 years, far more money has been spent on IAD than DCA. IAD has gotten a new runway, new underground security screening, new train system and a new ATC tower. Now, I'll agree that some...

No, it doesn't require a JV partner.

For example, Jetblue (!) has the IAD-DXB contract because they can codeshare with Emirates. However, B6 and EK don't have a JV.

Not saying I agree with Hunter, but I would note that DL has cut its presence at SFO (high tech), BOS (high tech), DCA (government), MCO, FLL, CVG and MEM compared to five years ago.

Replies like this are why UA doesn't give much credence to FT anymore. Your comparison isn't even remotely analogous. While I agree that UA does owe some compensation to customers, I think people...

DL is about 65% RJ in CVG. UA is about 50% RJ in EWR. So perception isn't reality.

I'm not defending UA's use of RJ's, but they are trying to fix the problem. UA has used 73G's and A319's coming,...

I thought you meant scratch marks on the inside, which I assumed is from all the people desperately trying to claw their way out of the cramped RJ seats.

True, but how much of that 20% delay is UA's fault? UA can't control the weather and UA can't control FAA/air traffic control.

Historically, the one problem is that many business travelers are prohibited from buying first class. Even if the F fares are more reasonable, many companies still won't allow it.

However, I...

Sorry but this is incorrect. DL's mainline fleet will grow by almost 100 aircraft between 2013 and 2015. This in large part because the 717's are being added, but not to replace mainline but rather...

No miles for a P fare on OS (purchased via UA)

So, I was ready to buy a ticket through UA which includes a codeshare on OS (IAD-VIE) in P class. I was surprised to see that this ticket will earn me no MP miles. I emailed customer service (and...

I'm finding plenty of flights priced around $3200 for IAD-ZRH which are all booking in P. Not the greatest price, but definitely tolerable.

If you were to stage length adjust, you'd find much of your analysis changes. UA's stage lengths are longer than DL which skews your PRASM and CASM analysis. I used stage length adjusted numbers in...

But if UA had really taken a $500,000,000 dollar hit in passenger revenue from FF's leaving, why did their passenger RASM rise the same amount (3%) as DL's did last year? One would expect that DL...

Sorry, but this big customer exodus just hasn't happened. If it had, UA's revenues should be plunging. UA's revenues are not plunging. UA's revenue's aren't great, but far from plunging. Second, DL...

I don't think UA really cares and will likely just let most of those customers bleed away. They don't have the capacity available to try and backfill the lost capacity and frankly I don't think the...

However, note that DL's mainline fleet is growing while UA's mainline fleet is not. By year end 2015, DL will have almost 100 more mainline planes than UA, while having 125 fewer 50 seat RJ's.

Except most of UA's competitors put waivers into effect about 24 hours ahead of UA.

The other problem with waiting is that some people actually want to fly out earlier to avoid the storm, but you...

There is no E190 operated for Delta's "express" fleet. DL uses the E175.



Actually, there's a big incentive. The 50 seaters are money losers.



UA isn't adding 37 seaters, they are even...
