The latest welcome video, bragging about all our Atlantic routes: "I started with United in the 90s when we served just a few international cities; we now service 34 on the trans-Atlantic network."

Quote:
"We directly served 28 Trans-Atlantic destinations . . . from the U.S. mainland as of December 31, 2009."

Was LUAL really just doing six Atlantics prior to the merger?

If that's true, I imagine they are talking about cities(not city-pairs) of which many overlap. LHR, CDG, FRA etc...

So now they're using Dan Katz to produce the safety video?! Sorry couldn't resist.

The 37 PAX from Gum to ROR every night is definitely floating the whole airline.

That's correct.

Although there was a huge disparity in twin-aisle aircraft between the pre-merger companies, UA primarily used the jumbos for routes like ORD-DSM, SFO-RNO, and IAD-BOS. Sadly, we just didn't have any aircraft with big motors or iPhone-level long range navigation systems. Thankfully the meger happened so now we can operate nonstop back to IAD.

FWIW, here's the YouTube version of the video mentioned at the start of this thread.

The new wings are kinda crappy looking. I though wearing hats was optional these days?
