Source?

I am thinking there is a better chance of meaningful health care reform happening before this order is placed.

Doing?
I heard (a few months ago) all the widebodies were gonna be Airbii.

Just more proof that a CAL-UAL merger is imminent. Any second now. They're gonna announce it. Predicted here, by me on FI, on the Ninerteenth day of August in the Year of our Lord Two-Thousand and Niner :rolleyes:

The new airframes will be the new 737 fleet SWA had promised the F9 pilots down the road... All UAL pilots will get a SWA interview.

SWA buys UAL - you heard it here first!

I WISH the UAL guys had the opportunity to "take back" the RJ flying. UAL pilots fly UAL customers.

Typical Section 6 playbook.

"We've got these aircraft on order, but we can't take delivery until we get this pilot contract nailed down. So, again, the most we can give you is a 3% pay raise."

Yawn!!!! :rolleyes:

And UAL mainline ordering CRJ's? I doubt it.

This has as much of a chance at coming to fruition as Pocohole pilot clearing up her feminine infection problem.

They might order them, but taking delivery will be a different story.

You guys have it all wrong! They are going to by them, take delivery and OUTSOURCE them for someone else to fly at a LOSS. It's the United way!

Apparently the gov't has expanded the cash for clunkers program to include old B737s.

Bombardier C-Series aircraft are not "RJs." They are 110-130 seat mainline aircraft with a 3x2 configuration.

Dunno?
not saying this rumor is true at all, but i am waiting on the first mainline carrier to order the C-Series so we can officially pin that aircraft onto the mainline tickets. That should be a great airplane when it comes.

Super broke the code. UAL getting the C series would be a great thing.
