Quick, simple question...Why are there UA 777s in the desert?

Those are part of the 8 777s that UA lease rejected during BK, they have all moved onto other homes at this point.

It isn't in the desert.

At May 2, I have it visiting Narita in Japan, flying for Air India.

My guess is that this is likely to have been a result of the post terrorism downturn in the industry.

That photo is over 5 years old. You shouldn't have phrased your question in the present tense...

Easy cowboy. Maybe he didn't catch the date on the photo or was unaware that they have been placed back in service.

Why is it so many people are so quick to jump on an oversight/mistake posted? I might suggest that type of behavior stops others from posting for fear of being chastised for a simple mistake or oversight.



It's 737s, 747s and 380s. Not 737's, 747's and 380's. Learn to use the apostrophe for crying out loud.

Couldn't agree more. For a bunch of Airplane geeks (me too) ya'll get very snippy at times.

Because this is A.net, the home of the armchair CEO's! Seriously, I think a lot of people take pride in their ability to find ones mistakes and really rub it in. Usually it's the younger members that do this.

I liked seeing the photo which is all that is important to selfish me.

Look at that tiny CO MD80 sitting in the middle.  wideeyed

One thing as always puzzled me about this UA livery:

How on earth could someone choose that color to an aircraft?

Merry Christmas everybody.  santahat 



Of course I love you. Now get me a beer.

So even if they are CEOs they should understand that this is A.net and everyone is free to voice their opinion!! Big grin Big grin

And additionally these aircrafts have been given to AI and will be soon phased out from the fleet and will be gone to the desert again.



Keep flying, because the sky is no limit!

Bankruptcy

UAL could not renegotiate terms they liked with the lessors, so they gave them back.

exactly...one of the things you can do during BK is rework all of your leases. If you cant come to a new agreement with the lessor you can ask the bankruptcy judge to void the lease and return the aircraft to the lessor.

Ok, now this armchair CEO is confused. Some posters were quick to jump all over the date of the photo, insinuating that these aircraft were removed from service and subsequently returned to the fleet. Then Its indicated that they were returned to the lessor.

Which one is it? Or both?  Confused

I agree 100%. Too few on here are too quick to jump down the throats of too many. More than a few times I've censored myself from posting this past, first year on A.NET because of the negativity that prevails sometimes. It wasn't this way four years ago when I was a lurker and became drawn to the site in the first place.

Here's a perfect example and please take no offense to it. It's AIRCRAFT. Not aircrafts and I am sure that they were not "given" to AI. While I do not know the exact details, they were more likely purchased or leased.

EXACTLY!

Anyway, as far as parking planes in the desert, I would certainly like to visit one of the desert storage facilities one day to get a full grasp of the scale. The photos do no justice.
