The 767 is a beautiful old workhorse...but I flew 767-300s to and from Naples, Italy this October - they are PAST tired. Most of the '300s are 29 to 31 years old. It's time. "Maintenance issues" are now becoming safety issues...

My favorite plane for passenger experience.
We flew RT ORD-DUB in October. An incredibly sweet ride.

With aìrport fees going up at most international airports and the price of a ticket increasing I wonder if buying large aircraft at this time is a good idea.

Gotta love the 787. recently flew Fiji Airways A330 and A350( LAX - NAN). Both were very impressive, comfortable, modern aircraft(love the IFE). Both are on par with the 787 - perhaps just a touch better ?

Why do U.S. Airlines continue to purchase/lease foreign-made aircraft? Why rely on unreliable foreign governments that will ruin our country in the long run? It's about time that we take care of our own people with good jobs and a healthy economy.

We buy foreign aircraft because they are capable and competitive. I’m not afraid of France and Germany turning on us anytime soon. Airbus is a big contributor to their economy just as Boeing is to ours. Also, if we buy only US made aircraft, the airlines are dealing with a single supplier which is also risky. If you are talking about Chinese or Russian airliners, I would agree about the risk.

The best path to a healthy economy is healthy competition -- and lets be honest, Boeing isn't healthy at all. Protectionism does more harm than good in the long run

IMHO - a waste of money. Wish they'd concentrate on on-time and good service

UAL & good service is an oxymoron.

At United the schedule is only a suggestion.

I mean, as far as domestic carriers go would you Prefer Southwest, Spirit or American??

20 years and over a million miles on United - I just don't find this to be true, Delta has a slight lead service wise, but city pairs are what I'm after. And during the pandemic had to learn and all new game, Delta would be the top, United a close second, and AA dead last.
I have to go with major players. And United has Route network on all 3. Diamond and 1K and nothings perfect.

How many of the built or improperly built 787’s are actually wanted by their original buyer?
United’s long distance fleet needs replacements fast! . They sent one of their 767 to be repainted, but ended up scraping it due to corrosion. Very dangerous

Thank you Chicken Little.

There is more to that story than just an older airplane.
