Judge Continues Consideration of American’s Plan of Reorganization

Today, American presented its Plan of Reorganization to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, and Judge Sean Lane said he will take the matter under advisement. Judge Lane said he wants more information on the impact of the DOJ lawsuit on confirmation of the Plan before he issues a ruling on confirmation. While we await the Court’s decision on our Plan of Reorganization, we’ll continue to proceed with the legal process to address the DOJ complaint and continue planning for our proposed merger with US Airways. We are confident in the progress we have made in restructuring, thanks to the hard work of our people.

The planes are to be delivered to Vueling between 2015 and 2020, subject to approval from IAG’s shareholders. The airline group, Europe’s third-biggest airline by market value, said the Vueling agreement includes 58 options and 62 firm orders for engines for 30 A320ceo and 32 A320neo.

United Will Offer 787 Dreamliner on Seattle-Tokyo Flights

After Nov. 5, travelers will be able to choose between two Boeing 787 Dreamliners operating from Seattle. Except they’ll both be flying to Tokyo. United will convert its existing Boeing 777-operated daily Seattle-Tokyo service to a 787-8 on Nov. 5. The flights will still use Tokyo Narita. All Nippon Airways plans to do essentially the same thing Sept. 20, when it will start replacing the 777s it’s now using on the Seattle-Tokyo route with 787s. For United, the Seattle flight will be the third Dreamliner operating out of the West Coast, and the second flying from the West Coast to Narita. United also operates daily 787 flights from Los Angeles to Narita and to Shanghai. The 787-8 flying out of Seattle will be substantially smaller than the 777-200 United now flies on the route, offering 219 seats instead of 269.
