It will be an even more interesting question on when all of DL's B744s will finally be retired, especially that it has quite a lot of B767s, B777s, and A330s in use for its long-haul ops... perhaps when it gets some B787s?

Alaska Airlines and Nara to accelerate use of alternative jet fuels.

Alaska Airlines has partnered with Washington State University-led Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (Nara) in the US to accelerate use of alternative jet fuels.The partners will collaborate to develop fuel using post-harvest forest residuals as the feedstock of a bio-jet fuel supply chain.

The carrier plans to fly a demonstration flight in 2016 using 1,000gal of alternative bio-fuel being produced by Nara and partners.

I still see the US Airways livery on many of its A321s... but I've also seen ex-US Airways aircraft been repainted into American Airlines livery as well. Here in San Francisco, US Airways sends the A321 on a regular basis, especially for its hub flights (SFO-PHX, SFO-PHL, and SFO-CLT).

Was it not the case though that in April this year US Airways ceased to be an airline it its own right and currently is a marketing brand of American Airlines?

Still it would be a shame to see no plans fly its rather nice livery beyond the odd "heritage aircraft" though.

Yeah the FAA operating certificate has been merged so US Airways was basically a separate brand for American Airlines until the recent rebranding effort has taken place.

Speaking of which do you feel the merger has been good for both Pre-Merger AA and Pre-Merger US or has it been a repeat of either the US Airways-American West Merger or worse?

Because personally I was rather unkeen on such a merger and I would have preferred that they merged with United Airlines (after they merged with Continental) since AAs hubs fitted in better with UA/CO than with US.

Well I think the merger was somewhat necessary because of the fact that their competitors have also merged with other airlines (ie Delta/Northwest and United/Continental) so it was probably necessary for the airline to retain it's competitive footing. Plus it allows American Airlines to expand it's network in Europe which was minuscule in addition to retaining it's extensive network in Latin America and Asia which is important since there is more profit with international flights as opposed to domestic.

That being said since American Airlines was the last major airline to merge with another carrier not to mention past experience with US Airways/America West, it probably allowed them to avoid the same mistakes that United made when they merged with Continental.

I agree that a merger was needed since the US Aviation Market was changed by the DL/NW and UA/CO mergers, both of which meant American Airlines went from being the largest US airline to the 3rd largest.

However while US Airways has a good network in Europe in Asia it consisted of only Tel Aviv*

Thus I felt it made sense to merge with either United Airlines or Delta Air Lines due to not only having a good network in Europe but also in Asia. Likewise merging with United would have consolidated their positions in NYC, Chicago and LA as well while merging with Delta would have given them Atlanta and consolidate their operations at NYC to be better able to rival UA in EWR.

Still a merger with US Airways was going to happen due to the comeptition issues with the other 2 (From the perspective of the US Goverment and which I disagree with) and by the fact US Airways was firstly marginised within Star and even further behind AA in terms of market presense.

*Does AA plan to continue to serve Tel Aviv in the near future?

Well so far the merger seems to be going better than I thought it would thus perhaps they have learned lessons both not only those examples but also when AA bought TWA.

Looks like United Airlines will be investing much more in its San Francisco base by expanding its flight network to three new, long-haul destinations:

Auckland (service resumption, last served March 2003)

This service will initially operate thrice weekly from 1 July 2016, and it will increase to daily from 28 October 2016 in time for the Winter season. Once the days for 1 July to 27 October is released, it will be included in this list.

Note: there is an aircraft listing conflict, with UA saying it will be operated with a 788, while Airline Route reports the aircraft type as a 789

UA917 SFO2245 – 0655+2AKL 787
UA916 AKL1305 – 0630SFO 787

Tel Aviv

This brand new service will begin operation from 30 March 2016, in which it will be operated thrice weekly. With this flight, it will complement existing El Al service operating from Los Angeles (on board B777-200ER) and it will allow flyers to choose between two carriers between California (and the US West Coast, if not also BC) to Israel.

UA954 SFO2000 – 2010+1TLV 789 357
UA955 TLV0055 – 0600SFO 789 257

Xi'an

This will be United's second secondary city service to China (after Chengdu), in which it will be operated seasonally during the summer (similar to CTU) three times a week from 8 May 2016. Schedules to be determined.

United Airlines drops Kuwait flights

http://news.kuwaittimes.net/website/...uwait-flights/

Quote:
KUWAIT: American carrier United Airlines will stop providing flight services to Kuwait as of January. United will also stop services to Bahrain. The announcement comes only a few weeks after the US Department of Transportation found Kuwait Airways guilty of discrimination for refusing to allow Israeli nationals to fly its New York to London route.

A United Airlines spokesperson Luke Punzenberger told the aviation blog View from the Wing that the carrier would continue a “dialogue with the [Kuwait] government”. “We have taken steps to cease our service to Kuwait and Bahrain, effective January 13, 2016. We will continue to maintain an open dialogue with both governments and others who may be affected by this decision, and offer alternative travel plans or refunds to customers who could be impacted,” he was quoted as saying. United told the blog that the “service is not meeting our financial expectations”.

United was the only US carrier to offer direct Kuwait to US services. Passengers can also choose national carrier Kuwait Airways for direct flights to New York, though it’s unclear at this point if the recent ruling will result in an interruption or halt in KAC flights to the US.
