Hi all :


Is United Airlines the only airline which uses B777 for its domestic routes ? No other airlines use B777 for domestic flight ... AA and Delta use B777 for transcontinental flights such as from ATL to Tokyo or from Dallas to Narita while United flies B777 from ORD to DEN and DEN to LAX. Any idea or thought ... thanks

Andy

United flies most of their 777s to Europe but yes they do fly them domestic because they have a sizable fleet of 747s that fly to Asia. Anyway United is starting 777 fights to asia by the end of this year.

Just to clarify, Andy, flights such as DFW-NRT are not transcontinental, they are intercontinental. Transcontinental refers to flights across a continent, such as SAN-JFK. Intercontinental would refer to flights between two continents.

UA doesn't fly the 777's domestically just for the heck of it. All of UA's 777 flights connect on to other 777 international flights, whether they be over the Atlantic, or to South America.

I think it is a good thing that united is using widebodies like the 747,767, 777, and DC-10 on domestic routes. It gives me an extra feeling of comfort. More airlines are now using widebodies on domestic routes like Delta is using the L-1011.
