UNITED SEEKS RETURN TO NEW YORK JFK: “United Airlines wants to return to New York John F. Kennedy International airport three years after ending service there. Scott Kirby, president of the Chicago-based carrier, said United would like to return to JFK but 'doesn’t see a feasible organic solution to getting back in there', a summary of his presentation at the Wolfe Research Global Transportation Conference on 22 May shows. United would have to acquire slots from another carrier to re-enter JFK, as well as secure terminal and gate space at the airport.” (Flight Global) | HelloJetBlue


Surprised no one mentioned this.... can't see a feasible organic solution.

It's on the united thread. And bluepilots. Whatever. Who cares. Nothing we can do will affect it. This rudderless ship has no direction. Hopefully they find some. Or find some leadership who can give this place some direction. Organically, or otherwise. I personally don't want to work for any organization that scott kirby is in though, so, there's that.

Could be strategically planted chaff (disinformation) to acclimate & spoof people to accept a substandard contract under the premise of something better if we just sign on the dotted line quickly......

Wait, would the SLI include language that former B6 pilots make at least 10% less than other pilots on property due to former LCC status? I mean, LCC=discount pilots. I am sure all the UAL guys would be thrilled with our discount pilot group voting on their contracts. :rolleyes:

No No... that it came out on Pravda. They cherry pick articles.

How about a UAL and DAL gate swap? EWR for JFK. It’s a wrap. No merger. Although I just got fitted for my uniform cap. Oh well.
