News & Events


We're going to try something a little different during the winter doldrums. On Saturdays in January and February, we will fly from one of our hubs to another - one city pair a week - until we have visited all of our hubs. To accommodate the spread of time zones our pilots have, take-offs will be at 10 a.m., hub local time, we'll probably use 10 a.m., Midwest, for Narita. There will be a new award for pilots who complete all the legs.

NEW: South America Tour #2

Fly the 11 legs in their prescribed order: KIAH-SVMI; SVMI-SBGL; SBGL-SPJC; SPJC-SKCL; SKCL-SEQM; SEQM-SKBO; SKBO-SCEL; SCEL-SPZO; SPZO-SAEZ; SAEZ-SBGR; SBGR-KIAH. You may fly non-award legs between the award flights, i.e., fly SKCL-SEQM, then fly a Friday Night Ops (FNO) in the USA, then fly SEQM-SKBO. See the Events forum post or the tracking sheet for notes about SPJC, SEQM and SPZO. Use UAL liveries for all flights; fly charters for flights not on the vUAL schedule.
