Hello,

From what I was told, UAL used to fly 747-200s to Europe.

What routes did they fly?

UAL also flew 747-100s to CDG, LHR, FCO, MXP and FRA from IAD. The 741s to CDG, LHR and FRA were all replaced by 777s. FCO was dropped and MXP got a 767-300ER until April this year when a 777 was put on that route.

Does anyone know when the 777 replaced the 747s on these routes please?

Could anyone tell me when the MUC-IAD flight was started? Do they have any plan to switch to 777 on the route?

Thank you,

Best regards,
Alain Mengus

United started operating 777's in Europe shortly after getting them from boeing. After that, they began to phase out the 747 in Europe. Now, the 747-400 flys to Europe. The only flight that I know about is ft UA954. SFO - LHR.
Hope that helps.

I think I remembere seeing a -400 scheduled on one of the IAD-FRA services but don't know if it's still being used.

UA flew 747-400 on the IAD-FRA route last summer but it is 777 now as LH increased frequencies. UA started flying 747-400 on ORD-FRA in April though.
I'm not sure when UA started to fly IAD-MUC, but I think it was 1997. There are NO PLANS to switch to 777 on that flight as it already IS oberated by 777.

There still is an UA flight operated by a B747-400 to FRankfurt. I saw it in May when I was there. I think it's used on the ORD-FRA-ORD route.

B737-700

Alain,

When United received its first transatlantic routes they used a few modified 767-222's, along with a mixed bag of 747s...741s, 742s, and SPs. And by 1992 they started receiving 767-322ERs from Boeing which gradually became the standard bearer until the 777s come online. If you do a search UA even operated DC-10-30's to South America.... this was all before they had a dedicated Transatlantic-fleet.

Hello,

Could you please tell me what they operated on ORD-CDG, IAD-CDG, the few-times-a-week SFO-CDG, and the closed-and-reopened LAX-CDG?

Thank you,

Best regards,

UA currently operates 747-400's on LHR-SFO, LHR-ORD, and FRA-ORD. I remember in the early 90's a 747SP was run on the JFK-LHR route.

ORD-CDG: 763, IAD-CDG: 741 (both got 777s in July or Aug 95), SFO-CDG: 763 and LAX-CDG: 763. All UA's routes to CDG are now flown by 777s. UA has applied for JFK-CDG to start Apr01 with 763. The777Man


Need a Boeing 777 Firing Order....Further to fly....CI, MU, LX and LH 777s

Just some additional info:
UA started daily ORD-DUS-ORD service in 1996/7 (?), soon after AA pulled out of the route, using a 763. Last year, departure time in DUS was shifted from noon to 1535h, so that LH passengers could make connections to the westbound flight.

Hope that helps!

United operated a 747-SP on the Newark-Heathrow route until it was replaced
with a 777 in 1995. Newark-Heathrow was one of the first transatlantic routes
to see 777's in United colors.

Actually, the 777 was first used on a trans-Atlantic route. Remember the first route for the 777-200 was IAD-LHR?

Right now, it appears that United will be using their 777 fleet mostly on international flights, with the exception of the few two-class planes that are used on longer-range domestic flights (SFO/LAX-HNL).

YEs, I said that the Newark-Heathrow route was one of the first. Not
THE FIRST to see 777 service.

United does use some 777's on domestic runs between hubs, such
as DEN to ORD and DEN to SFO.

Actually, the inagural flight of the 777 was LHR-IAD.

OK, read my post........EWR-LHR was ONE of the First. Not THE FIRST.
The IAD-LHR was the inaugural.

Before you bite my head off, ContinentalEWR, look one post above yours--Ray Chuang's. I was responding to his "remember the first route...was IAD-LHR".

BTW--maybe you should read MY post...LHR-IAD was the inagural. NOT the other way around. (Isn't getting your head bit off fun, CoEWR?!)

LHR-IAD was indeed the inaugrial revenue earning 777 flight.

IAD-FCO was served until the 90s european cutdown resulted in the loss of this route as well as, to name a few (circa historical order): CDG-ATH, LHR-BER, LHR-MUC, LHR-HAM, CDG-GNV, IAD-MAD, IAD-ZRH.
