    Interesting aritcle:

    It will be nice to see widebodies making a comeback at DEN with the opening of a Boeing 767 base there. Though I was puzzled that they said it would be with sCO crew. That means either they are going to start operating the sUA 763s or it will be sCO 764s. If it is the later, then since sCO 764s are mostly used on international routes, does that mean DEN is going to pick up some new routes to Europe and South America?

    Would love any UA route DEN-europe. Haven't had squat since they cancelled the old DEN-LHR route.

    Looks like the reported swap at IAH from mostly pmCO737 to pmUA Airbii is happening. UGH!

    Yes, although there are also more domestic 757s coming on board at IAH, which is not an entirely bad thing if you like to get upgraded.

    Yeah... Whenever I see A319 on by itinerary, I think "butt pillow time."
