My understanding is that DL's planes will have the psychical capability and will do some longer missions. However the plan is for the fleet average stage length to be under 1,000mi. CVG-West Coast...

There are E+ seats that have pitch like that (the 2-class 763 comes to mind). Obviously not all, but some do. It's called advertising.

Back to this post. You've either been incredibly fortunate in those 20+ years flying, or are not telling the whole truth of not seeing any carrier besides the modern UA not make that effort. In my...

It will always be the LA Coliseum to me, but it's still pretty cool to see UA add naming rights to such a historic venue.

So now you agree that it's a contributing factor. No one is saying it's the only factor. But it is the #1 controllable contributing factor that airlines can use to increase ontime arrivals, outside...

You can't have a good A:0 without first having a good D:0 (unless you believe in excessive, unrealistic block times that wastes time, hides a poor operation, and increases costs). Have to put the...

I'm surprised it took you by surpise. I would expect gate holds the least on DL. DL has been stringent about D:0 for a long time, longer than I've known it to be a focus at UA, and pressure agents to...

Of course not, holding everything else constant obviously. I don't know what you're even trying to prove with YE load factors.

Take a shot at the hypothetical question.

You have that backwards. It's the vast majority of passengers that are benefited by a focus on D:0. It's a select few that may end up drawing the short end of the stick. Overall it's highly...

Your LAS flight arrived at the gate at 12:07. So the time when they could kick you off happened when you were getting out of your airplane seat in a different terminal.

I never said there has never been more 2-class service at DAY. Anyone who goes back can see I never said that. I'd appreciate it if you don't misconstrue statements. I asked you if you had any...

I'm curious. From a passenger perspective, would you consider the 199-seat DL 757 "junky"? Ignore the AVOD angle for a second. Judge it based on layout, space, and comfort.

I would say that flying someone without a valid ticket qualifies. I can't imagine the feds being too happy about that either.

For kicks let's say it a different way isolated on the revenue side of the equation. For the average UA flyer at the average UA stage length (1,460 mi), it means UA flyers paid $221.92 instead of...

It's takes a lot of spin to claim there is "nothing wrong". Let's make a tally:

Currently for UA IAD-YYZ is 3 out of 4 E175. And U.S./Canada traffic is dominated by Canadian point of sale, giving Canadian carriers the advantage. With no joint venture in place on cross-border...

I'm not saying because I'm saying it. I'm saying it because it's what the BTS and Dayton Airport stats tell us. I'd be on board with you if that's what the stats show. UA hasn't had drastically more...

Modern J seats with all aisle access are inefficient at the start and end of the cabin. Herringbone, staggered, they all are that way. All leave wasted space where part of another seat would be. And...

Miscater most likely. Write in and get compensation, but I wouldn't base eating before a flight on a likely miscater.

UA has been transitioning to new revenue management software for some time now. I want to say it started sometime last fall, but I'm not 100% on that. I'm not surprised to see pricing changes. I know...

The little thing known as competition - or the lack thereof - largely explains the gap.

Within 90 days I would be pretty confident about the 752 sticking. They've been flying many domestic routes in the winter Atlantic offseason, with hub-to-hub being quite common.

Good news. I hope they stick to it. An average of 5% per year would put them over 300 billlion ASMs in 2020 and likely make them the largest carrier by that metric unless DL or AA change their...

The three 767s indicates they are indeed getting some from HA. I would imagine it would be N588HA, N590HA, and N592HA since they are the common 4 door/4 overwing exit version that matches UA's. The...
