I don't know, but last month I had booked a 735 from SAN-SFO and go figure, I arrived at the airport to find out the plane never even left DEN and they canceled the flight. That was suppose to be my first and last UA 735 flight.
Not in the literal sense. It seemingly carries a ton of flexibility though, subbing for just about any fleet type around the system. It does have a schedule though ("schedule" used very loosely). Just tracking down it's schedule is the tricky part.
Quoting Jetmatt777 (Reply 6): Unless it happened to not be scheduled today and was just sitting at ORD when the A320 went MX.
I would have to look up where it was supposed to be going in and out of but no, it was not just sitting idle in ORD.

What happens to aircraft when the entire fleet is put out of service. I know where they go, but do they have a "funeral" for a lack of better words. Like when they stopped using the 727 and DC10s ... Because in our FAOM chapter 6 is missing assuming thats is where the 727 was. So when the 737s are gone so will chapter 7. It will go from chapter 5 A319/320 to chapter 8 747. there isn't even a chapter 12 after 777. Goes right to chapter 13. Wonder what was there or is going there.
Dare i ask another fa. Most would be like "oh i never noticed" or "i forgot"
Anywho just rambling lack of sleep! lol

It was researched in a previous thread that it is indeed N913UA. Interestingly enough, the last UA 735 sighting I can remember was 913. It was flying proudly overhead many moons ago on a flight from the Rockies area to ORD. I'll miss seeing them look so young in the new colors.
I pulled out the FAOM and confirmed it was redone in Feb 2003 but I think got talking with someone and they said it was probably not reprinted since all the SWs knew chapters 13 and 14 were emergencies and it would not be smart to confuse them by changing it.
: FLights have already changed thanks to ORD's ATC tonight. It leaves the airline on Sept. 1st
: I guess we should just have our own conversation ...lol Anywho so I was just curious to what those chapters where in the past 6 and 12. I might bite
: I wish I could've caught a ride on it ORD-SFO. Anyone know what the last flight of the UA 735 will be? Might be worth catching a ride on it if it's so
: I can't believe all of the fuss regarding a B735. People spent years going way out of their way to avoid flying them on United. Now we're boo-hooing t
