I got rebooked on UA555 from ORD to SFO on March 22 and it was a 757 with winglets operating. Normally I log all my flights, but because I barely made the flight and slept the whole way, I wasn't able to get the aircraft reg. Was trying to see the reg from the terminal building in SFO, but I couldn't see the numbers clearly and only on the front gear door, which was something like 5997.
Been looking on flightaware, but no information on the actual reg. Flightradar24 shows the wrong aircraft type, so no useful information there.

If you look up the status of a flight on United's website, it will give you the tail number. You can check the status up to a couple of days after the flight. I wish all airlines would do this. Some registrations are impossible to see, such as at a gate with no window or the angle at which the plane is parked.
