Does any one have any idea as to why United cancelled flight 840 from SYD to LAX today (16/4/08).

Many thanks.

Is it being cancelled so often or what do you mean by that?

Sorry, Flyhighunited, I don't know why it got cancelled, but as you might know: there can be many reasons! I guess it's something tecnically...

a few times a month...take a read through the Australian Aviation threads! its safe to say that we've lost count on how many times this happens.

The reason appears to be mechanical on flight 839 LAX to SYD on the inbound. Without an airplane to make up 840 the flight was canceled.

UA 839/13APR was cancelled due to mech issue. The flight/plane was not re time it was CXLD all together. With that said, no plane for the return today!

umm..the UA flights are operating today (17th Aus time) ex SYD and ex LAX/SFO (16th US time)...no cancellations at all!

the flights affected were on the 16th April Australian time...when UA 840 arrives in LAX it turns around and heads to Narita and the NRT-LAX 744 becomes the LAX-SYD flight.

Interesting, I just check UA website they UA840/16APR from SYD LAX cancelled. My mistake too, UA839 got cancelled on the 14th not 13th as I stated earlier.

So 18 cancels over at least minimum 2 daily scheduled flights to LAX & SFO, (remember LAX had an extra flight 3x week around the holidays also) over 6-7mos -- so that maybe 450 flights schedule during the period.

Not that terrible statistically.

well it is that bad if the other outbound is full and they can't shove you on another flight until 24+ hrs later...

Yep, Notice that B744 over at spot 26 not the usual spot where they normally would have the B744 (SYD plane) sit.

This is not true. UA891/890 (LAX-NRT-LAX) has not been operated with a 744 for some time now, it has been a 777.

So now the only 744 rotations at LAX are between the SYD and HKG flights. The 777's can rotate between the flights to NRT, LHR, and FRA.
