Overjammed hubs, stretched turnaround times mean UA is late 40% of the time (despite padded skeds)

    The article posted doesn't match the title of this thread. Why post that yet, not cite a source for the written title? ‍♂️‍♂️‍♂️

    If you read it you will see it does
    Just the press buries it-should be the headline.

    Obviously I click the link and read it or I would not commented. So you're saying this should be the headline, granted it does not match the content of the article you post? Correct?

    One of the astounding things about MERGED air is how dismissive they are of people's time-the hub and spoke model is a fiasco that wastes millions of human hours a year. But it allows the cartel to make $billions. And there should be hundreds of stories about that-yet, there are none. A 40% lateness factor deserves major headlines:
    The company posted an on-time performance of 62.3% and a completion factor of 99.3% for the month.

    just one days worth of hardships caused by a cartel that is greed obsessed would be a great story-losf jobs, broken relationships, missed medical treatment, funerals you couldn’t make cause you missed your connection in EWR.
    This is a story for investors telling them that no matter how much they suck airlines will do well since theres only four or five of them. So thats their headline.
