Now that we know that UA will replace their 744 with A350 900XWB, I wonder when will UA start looking into a replacement for their 777-200 fleet? Maybe their replacement have not hit the drawing board yet?

If UA wants to replace the 747-400 with a smaller plane that should fit as a replacement for the 777-200, they are looking as smaller planes, in this case they would probably use the 787-9 or even the 787-8 that they have on order that would also replace the 767-300.

I think this is why they have 50 options for each type, for the eventual 777 replacement, having options for both allows for a later choice after having experience with each model.

Quoting 747400sp (Thread starter):

I'm thinking the A350 will be more of a 777 replacement than the 744. If they went for the A350-1000 then it could be, but UA seems to fill it's 744s enough to need a large aircraft.

When the time comes, UA can choose their preferred version(s) of 787 and/or A350. They'll have plenty of options to scale up or down or stay more or less with the same capacity.

United's oldest 777 is 15 years old. Their youngest is 8. They'll start getting 787s and A350s in 2016 when their 777 fleet will be between 21 and 14 years old. If UA don't want to be flying 25-year old 777s they'd better be thinking now about how they are going to replace them.

Assuming Boeing goes ahead with it; what about the 787-10?

Obviously some combination of 787s and A-350s down the road. Those two aircraft will be the core of United's long-haul fleet for a long time....

I always thought that UAL will replace all current widebodies (767/747/777) with a mix of A350's and B787's in a 8-10 year time frame starting 2012?

There is no forecast date for the removal of the 777s. They will eventually be replaced, but that will happen after the 767s and 747s have left the fleet in 2019. Depending on what plane performs better and has lower total costs, it might be the 787 or A350.
