I was wondering if there is anyway to find out which reg numbers are configured for domestic 2 class and which ones are for International 3 class? Was on a 2 class 767 today (ORD-SFO) but couldn't get the reg number. Next time!
Thanks

i might be wrong, but i know that 777-200 and 767-300's that are configured in a two class are mainly for domestic, meaning Hawaii routes. i might be wrong, but my neighbor is a United airlines flight attendant and he was making fun of united's domestic first class configuration to hawaii on the 777-200. so i asked him and he said that the configured widebodies with two class are for hawaii.

United has six 777-222ERs that operate as two class airplanes in the 36 and 312 configuration. They are N210UA-N215UA.

I believe there are 14 PW4056 powered 767-322ERs that operate as two-class airplanes. Someone else needs to chime in on the tail numbers, but I know they are the ships registered N664UA and higher - ending I believe in N677UA.

It has been a few years since I was a UA flight attendant and my manuals are waaay out of date at this point, but I loved working the back galley on those 2-class 777s on SFO-OGG and SFO-KOA back when we had 9 flight attendants in coach and the galley position was a dedicated galley. Even with 312 people in the back the staffing made the service go extremely smoothly.

UA has 4x different subfleets of 777-

772A Domestic Config (6 total, tail# N210UA-N215UA)

772A Intl Euro Config (12 total, tail# N768UA-N781UA)

772ER Euro Config (16 total, tail# N782UA-N799UA)

772ER Asia Config (17 total, tail# N204UA, N206UA, N209UA, N216UA-N229UA)


Unfortunately I can't give you the exact tail numbers for the 763 2-cabin or 763 3-cabin fleets. However, as it is currently it's very easy to tell them apart. All 3-cabin 763's are in new colors, and all domestic 2-cabin 763's are in old colors. The only reconfigured 763 so far is fleet# 6447 (N647UA).

The 2-cabin 763's and 777's are most typically used on Hawaii as well as hub-to-hub routes.

No, they are 772A's......just 777-222. They were the last 772A's ordered by UA, and is why they have N2XXUA tail numbers as opposed to the typical N7XXUA tail numbers for the rest of the 772A fleet.

almost all domestic flights operated by 767s are the 2 class variety. I've found that non hawaii domestic 777 routes are usually 3 class. LAX/SFO/SEA to ORD have always been 3 class for me.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Yes, except for ORD<>IAD. The 3-cabin 763's on inbound flights from Europe or South America then fly a domestic ORD<>IAD before taking out a Europe or South America outbound. If you check the flight schedule between O'Hare and Dulles in the afternoon, there are a ton of 763 3-cabins.

The plane's configuration actually shows in the "nose #", which is the tail # except for the 2nd digit. I've been away too long to know the config numbers, but, for example: a 767 with the tail reg# N664U, might have a nose number 6264, which might mean it's config as 2 class domestic; or it might have a nose number of 6364, which might mean it's cofigured as a 3 class international. Remember these are hypothetical 2nd digits, as I don't know what they are anymore.


Not as easy as originally perceived

772ER Asia Config (17 total, tail# N204UA, N206UA, N209UA, N216UA-N229UA)

N204UA and N206UA are "Euro configs", plane no. 2904 and 2906. 209, 216-229 are Transpac configs with the pilot bunk aft of the cockpit and crew rest below the mid-cabin lavatories at doors 3L/3R

At least 1 SFO-IAD is also served by a 3 cabin 767. I believe its flights 871/872.

Yes: 2 class are N664UA-N677UA

Not just Hawai'i, though they do a lot of their flying to Hawai'i

The are 777-222, not -222ER.

Actually, the 2 class aircraft are PW4052, not PW4056 powered. The also have at least one tank removed and have significantly shorter range than the other 763ER aircraft in the fleet.

Quoting RoseFlyer (Reply 4):

Almost always. Likely due to aircraft repositioning and international connecting traffic.

As of June 2007, all 14 B767-300ER in the subfleet -MD have PW4056-power. Check with OPBLP if questions.

Well I'll be damned!!! You are, indeed, correct. Do you know why 2904 and 2906 are in Euro config?

Quoting Sfomb67 (Reply 6):
might have a nose number 6264, which might mean it's config as 2 class domestic; or it might have a nose number of 6364

Unless something has changed recently, the fleet numbers are as such:

66XX- Domestic 2-cabin
63XX- International 3-cabin, old configuration. 10F/32C
64XX- International 3-cabin, new configuration. 6F/26C flat beds

Currently there is only one 64XX bird: 6447.

I thought the domestic 767's were 67xx?

Also, for 777's:

Domestic are 25xx
International XP are 26xx
Anything else is Atlantic config although it varies based on ER etc.
