@winglets747 United expects to announce “amazing” 777-300ER product in summer 2016.
@winglets747 The 777-300ER will be United’s first aircraft design since the merger. Opportunity to incorporate brand design from the start.
@winglets747 United on 10-abreast 777: “We wouldn’t want to compromise our minimum standards” but pax want lower fares, more award space.
@winglets747 United works with Zodiac UK – different from Zodiac US, which American Airlines is having big issues with.
@winglets747 United Airlines evaluating A350-900ULR for non-stop US-Singapore. Question is if sub-fleet makes sense or aircraft too niche.
