3 Links I Love: A Small United Airplane on the Horizon?, Air Canada Invades the US, and Black Friday Deals

This week’s featured link:
United and ALPA Reach an Agreement in Principle to Extend Pilot ContractUnited Newsroom
United has been on a labor relations-roll since it kicked out its old CEO. It has a tentative agreement with its mechanics, it has decided to open negotiations with its airport workers early, and now it has a tentative deal with its pilots to extend its agreement a couple years.

While this is a positive sign for the company, it’s particularly interesting to see the pilot deal. Why is this happening so quickly? Well the big talk is about United finally bringing on a 100 seat airplane. It can’t be the 717 since Delta and Hawaiian own most of those. Will it be a bigger Embraer? Or will Bombardier finally get a C Series order it so desperately needs? If it’s the latter, I can only imagine what a smoking deal it’ll be. What’s your take?

Trump may be thinking about building his wall a bit further north. After all, this is a massive Canadian invasion of the US. Of course, this kind of invasion will be welcomed with open arms.

Fake Black FridayImgur
This has absolutely nothing to do with airlines, but in honor of Black Friday I couldn’t resist. If anyone needs some spare copies of Air Bud, I have 86 of them available.
