You won’t hear me saying that very often, but it seems like United has finally woken up, and no, it’s not April 1, I already checked the calendar. Based on this WSJ article, United is considering a huge order of up to 150 planes.
I gotta hand it to United for this one. They might be crazy enough to hedge oil at a $120+/barrel, but they sure know when to buy planes! This has long been my biggest complaint when it comes to the short sightedness of the current management team, so at the very least I can scratch that complaint off my list.
I can’t wait to see what United picks up at the garage sale.
