Looks like this 737-300 is coming out of storage to fly to DEN..... can anyone confirm? Its flying under an acceptance flight number so that is what got me thinking.

It shows the flight went from PHX-TUS probably the last flight this bird will see for UA.

PHX-TUS

My bad I meant GYR. So maybe it was sold. I can't see them bringing back a 737-300. Of course it is UAL so who knows.

Again though it was flying under an acceptance flight number. Plus there were only one 737 at TUS w/ two scheduled to go back to DEN. Unless it was an acceptance flight for another airline.........

A little off subject but I don't understand how UA can retire almost 90 airplanes (737s) and have no plans to replace them!

I know that the downturn in the economy is part of the reason and RJs are the other part of the reason but this is huge... Is UA shrinking it's domestic capacity way too much?

With UA and CO in *alliance, there will be opportunities for cross fleet optimization.
For example with Continetal moving to Terminal 1 at ORD, you may see CO flights operating on routes that UA used put their metal on. Since there is revenue sharing within the alliance, it will not matter who flies on the route as long as the process for the customer is seamless with comparable service levels.

That is how UA can get rid of 90 aircraft.

I am sure that United has lots of plans for how to replace the retired 737-300s. The problem is they don't have the cash to implement those plans. United is not in the best of financial shape.

The plan has and will continue to be with the use of CR7 and E170 aircraft.

Flt was GYR to TUS and no UA outbound...probably gone to new lessor/owner at that point.

Not on domestic flights. Otherwise it would basically be a merger. Its unlikely you will see CO planes on UA routes domestically.

Many thinner routes have been handed over to UAX. They are trying to shrink to profitability and make themselves more attractive for a merger.
