As a flight attendant for UA, I have worked the 747 as an esub from Chicago. I have passridden on it as well one time back from LAS. Fun times!

Cool stuff! I wondered if, after the move to the new wing of the D-Gates, that UA could fit a 744. I guess my question is answered.  I wish I was in Vegas to see this.

I heard a pilot on the radio right after she took off saying something about it needing to do three domestic legs before it could go back long haul. I'm guessing it had something to do with maintenance performed. I was taxing back from the VOR on taxiway Bravo when she left. Very cool sight.

Always nice to see the big boys in town, Virgin 747, Condor 767, Delta 767, BA 777 even Delta's mile long 757's (beats the usual forest of canyon blue)

Would make sense for having it fly a short leg trip if it just came out of a repair bay.

Both UAL 777 and 744 a/c are not that uncommon for LAS. Just last week, UA used a 777 on a IAD-LAS run. United frequently subs wide-bodies at LAS for various reasons, even during the "all-Ted" period. Despite them not being scheduled, a couple per month are not unusual.

Are these bookable by pax as 777 and 744 or is it an equipment sub with lots of empty seats?

Aircraft flew LAX-SFO as UA 170 completely full as a previous flight LAX-SFO cancelled.

Both UA and Delta have been dropping in these larger birds pretty frequently, and their frequent visits are only expected to increase. UA with the 74s and 777, while Delta has had a mix of A330s and 777s.

Guess we know United's 'Iron Triangle' for breaking in airplanes after maintenance. Hopefully, after the IPTE mods on the 777 fleet, UA will continue to send the big heavy metal boys to Vegas   . I can only hope.

Well, I can't be too sad. My camera is broken and it won't record. So, this would have only made me even more upset. But, still.
