UA has been competing with much cheaper one-stop options to TLV for years on a host of airlines... I can’t really see a highly-circuitous ME connection moving the needle much at all for...

That style of cufflink was more common in the late 60s/early 70s. The Saul Bass “meatball” dates to 1968, so I’m going to guess it is from that ballpark.

TK is a much, much more prominent (and logical) competitor for US-originating TLV traffic flows, yet its growth hasn’t slowed UA’s expansion. I still think the entry of EK, and presumably EY, to the...

I flew on N222UA yesterday, the only 772ER in a domestic configuration. It adds 4AB/KL, relocates lavatories at 2L/R, and most importantly adds PTVs in Y. It also eliminates the dreaded armrest-top...

Maybe at the low end (EK dumping Y capacity over DXB to TLV) but the significant premium market to TLV will continue to fly nonstop and avoid the circuity.

This puts a lot of pressure on El Al...

The horse is miles and miles and miles out of the barn, and even places that have aggressively worked to restrict entry (e.g., Hawaii) are seeing increases in the rate of transmission. Florida's...

The “network“ is geared for business travel, which isn’t happening for the foreseeable future. So, either fly somewhere, or just park the planes. An innovative approach for this airline that will...

The way the contract is written, there is some room for interpretation of the "convert" and "for operation as" language... conventional wisdom seems to be that the company will take seats off of the...

I don't think IAD-YVR ran on UA metal through the late 90s until the 9/11 era. I see an occasional, seasonal AC flight, though.

Elsewhere, someone pointed out that slots in the LHR 11pm hour are freely available. It is speculated that UA acquired these slots simply for the purpose of trading them to NZ on paper, because NZ is...

That might be a conscious decision not to sell local seats and manage entry restrictions, visa verification, etc. during COVID-19 for the sake of simplicity. I don't believe UA relinquished its...

That's a bit of a head-scratcher. UA does not have flights at those hours. In normal times both IAD and EWR AM flights are blocked to arrive before 9pm, and UA's last LHR departure is the 6pm EWR.

True... but the ebbs and flows of soft product are to be expected. Decisions made pertaining to major capital projects are really tough to undo!

Here's the question... what is going to open first? The C-3 club or the Terminal 1 complex?!

Sadly, I feel the new EWR Terminal C club will suffer the same fate as the LAX UC. Ambitious plans,...

Yes, and probably a lot more airplanes parked (and jobs lost) than will move from one subsidiary to the other. The economics of unsubsidized 50-seat markets are probably of no interest to the majors,...

I don't believe this applies to true transit pax; e.g., single itinerary, bags through-checked, onward boarding passes issued, no entry to the SAR, etc.

Might be a moot point because...

This makes sense. HKG is not restricting or testing transit pax, and if a crew does not enter (or even leave the aircraft) then they won't need to be tested on arrival. "Invasive" testing and the...

A mobile airstair isn’t part of UA’s standard equipment at most jetbridge-equipped gates, especially in the USA, and would be an additional cost item at contract stations. Passengers on a ramp also...

They aren't too far apart in these fleets... UA has 22 77W to AA's 20, and UA has 55 787 to AA's 44 (though not all presently in service). Looking at the schedules, UA and AA are doing about the...

I was very surprised by this, because AA has been touting its dedicated cargo network and a similar number of worldwide all-cargo flights.

United is flying the crap out of its 787s and 777-300ERs right now for cargo service, with incremental pax where possible. This won't last forever, but cargo revenue is up 36% year over year and...
