Hey All,

On May 10th I'm flying from LAS-SFO on UA. I bought the ticket through Air Canada and on the itinerary it says "operated by UNITED FOR TED".

Now, I think I remember hearing something about TED no longer being a seperate entity? Or does this mean I will forsure be on a TED aircraft?

The A/C type listed is A319.


Thanks,

Kris

Ted is not a separate entity nor has it ever been. It is mainline with a different paintjob and no F-class. At LAS I believe some of the TED flights are being subbed with mainline service to get F-Class seats back in the market. You may actually get a mainline aircraft. Is the UA flight number a 4 digit number? Generally 1400 or 1500 series for TED.

It's a 4 digit number, however it looks like a code-share AC flight number. It's flight 4879 according to my itinerary.

If it's truly an A319, it won't be TED. However, I see nothing but A320's on LAS-SFO on May 10th, and united.com can't sell me F class on any UA nonstop that day, so I suspect you'll get a TED 320.

More like aircraft swaps at the last minute.

I just double checked my itinerary and it says "Airbus 319-321" which I mistook for a 319 but I think it's really just a generic thing for airbus narrowbody meaning it could be a 319, 320 or 321. This is an AC itinerary so that makes sense.

Looks like I'll be on a TED 320. Are the TED interiors any different than UA mainline other than the lack of business class?


Thanks

Kris

It says Ted on the bulkhead and the IFE is different (basically the same except Ted branded). Other than that it's identical.

May I suggest that despite rumors and such here on Anet that TED is probably gonna stay around for a bit....all the reasons that started it during the chapt 11are in full force now with 110 bbl oil plus until the UA/CO or whoever deal is settled there will be no big changes during the short term on either side.
