Are you saying all carriers that have Interantional First dont make any profit?

Quoting nycdave (Reply 276):
certainly not enough to justify maintaining an ultra-luxury product on routes where it doesn't pay its way directly.

But in select markets, obvioulsy business markets as I have said it can be justified

-------
I don't think we're at a disagreement here. I never said that completely eliminating F in all markets was a good idea -- just that in markets where it's not sustainable, it will probably go in favor of an expanded C/J class. In terms of F, probably the goal will be to see more of what you've seen on LHR-ORD flights -- eliminating enough F capacity so that most, if not all of the seats, are fully paid and not upgrades. The ultimate goal should always be to get as many seats filled at as high a price as possible. Upgrades may be nice perks for frequent fliers, but if, on a given route, a frequent flier is all but sure to get an upgrade, that tells you there's something wrong with your capacity. I'm pretty sure if you did a cost/benefit analysis, the benefit of having a few more frequent fliers who are a little happier because they got into F class, when they were getting a modern C/J product anyways isn't going to outweigh the cost in terms of space you've given up for those upgrade-heavy seats.

Routes like LHR-JFK/ORD, LAX-JFK, most trans-pac routes, and a fair number of middle-east hub routes are always going to have enough F-class demand to make it a reasonable proposition to offer something "above and beyond" at astronomical prices, even if you wind up giving away some upgrades during slow periods. With long thin routes and domestic (and other sub-6hr) flights, I just don't see how it benefits UA to provide that service.

If I were them, I'd concentrate the UA-configured planes on those very high volume, high-demand routes that can sustain F class, and put CO-config planes on everything else... and probably reconfigure a fair number of UA planes to that 2-class setup, which should be sufficient for most routes.

Quoting Schweigend (Reply 274):
When is PMCO a/c 528 scheduled to come online? It is supposed to be the first 738 with the Blue Sky interior.

Wouldn't that scheme be great for p.s.? After all, the Sky birds will be a subfleet, no matter how you cut it, since evidently there is no retrofitting.

Not sure the Blue Sky would be a subfleet, that would depend on how many received in the long run. It's tough to keep exactly the same aircraft split up.
However, I agree that ps could be nice in the 738 with the new interior and LiveTV throughout. The 738 is more capable to handle heavy transcon winds than the 739ER since they have the same fuel capacity. The added payload capacity of the 739ER wouldn't matter as the seats are limited.
With ps, UA could use the new CO BF international seats and save 30 total inches vs. the UA ps F seat as the pitch is less. That would pick up about one row of Y seats. While the 752 is longer, the 738 doesn't have the extra doorway that takes up room and the ps 752 has a couple of closets behind F that can probably go away. Some are saying UA will drop Y+, if that happens that adds more seats on the 738.
In any case, the total seats may not drop that much with the 738.

Really like that idea. Plus, I can imagine them wanting to cannibalize some more 757's for int'll routes. There really isn't any p.s. function that the 738 can't handle/provide, whereas there's no substitute for the 752's on long thin transatlantic routes.

Most of UA's 757s, including the PS aircraft, are not ETOPS. The few ETOPS 757s UA does have are needed for West Coast-Hawaii.

CO/UA will be taking their first Sky interior 737 any day now. All future CO/UA 737 deliveries, including 739ERs, will have the new interiors. I think Sky Interior 737-900ERs are a nice replacement for the UA 757s.

Actually, with the combined traffic from CO and UA, isn't there a good chance for upgrading those 757 flights to Hawaii to 767s? Point taken about the ETOPs though... completely forgot about that little detail!

This may not be exact, but here's the PMUA 752 fleet information.
Fleet numbers 54XX, 65 units, non-ETOPS, most built in 1991/93, 3 built in 1996
Fleet numbers 55XX, 19 units, ETOPS, 13 built in 1991/92, 6 built in 1997/98
Fleet numbers 56XX, 1 unit, non ETOPS, not sure why it has its own number range
Fleet numbers 57XX, 12 units, non-ETOPS ps aircraft, all built between 1989 and 1992

The point is that ps aircraft are 18-21 years old. If these are to be retired, then new 738s would be a good replacement for the 752 ps aircraft and save a lot of fuel. Of course most of the non-ETOPS aircraft are pushing 20 years old as well. For a point of reference all 62 CO 752/753 units are newer than all but 6 UA 752s.

Regarding 752s for international service, there is no need to convert more UA 752s to ETOPS.
CO's 41 ETOPS 752s are probably sufficient for TATL routes. But, more are available for TATL service if need be, 1.) there are several PMCO 752s flying domestic routes, 2.) UA has many ETOPS aircraft running domestic (non-Hawaiin) services and 3.) if 753 aircraft are converted to ETOPS and take over for 752s on Hawaii operation, that would free some PMUA ETOPS 752s for international service.
For fleet simplicity and level of service reasons, it would make sense to put lie flat seats on just the aircraft that fly TATL - PMCO 41 752s. If there was an expansion of Pacific services at HNL and GUM with 752 aircraft, it could be accomplished with the 19 PMUA 752s as lie flats may not be necessary on these services.

So what is 56XX then?

This is the breakdown for UA 757s:

50xx: Only 593 which has Row 44 and leather slimlines
53xx: p.s. with winglets. 10 of the 13 ps ships currently have winglets: 502,505,510,512,517,518,525,532,554, and 555.
54xx: Your regular old UA 752. No ETOPS or EOW.
55xx: The ETOPS ships without winglets. There are currently 9 of these.
56xx: Same as 54xx except it is EOW equipped.
57xx: p.s. without winglets. 3 ships currently: 508, 557, and 560.
59xx: ETOPS with winglets. There are 7 currently: 544, 546, 549, 589, 590, 595, and 596

So there are 66 domestic (54/56), 16 ETOPS (55/59), 13 p.s. (53/57), and then 593 for a total of 96.

If UA would ever finish adding winglets to the p.s. and ETOPS birds they could eliminate 2 subtypes.

Do you know the plan for more winglets? It appears that UA chose 752s not based on age to designate them as ps or even ETOPS and the winglets have been placed on ps or ETOPS birds regardless of age. Will they all get winglets during mods or heavy checks?
There must be a payoff of several years to make winglet additions profitable. Since several of UA's oldest 752s (1989/1990/1991) have winglets is that an indication these aircraft won't be retired anytime soon?
Is there a plan to add winglets to 6the 54XX and 56XX fleets?

Doubt it. They will need the lift within the system. The 757s work well for UA on short haul routes like OMA-DEN, LAX-SFO, BOS-IAD, MCO-IAD, ORD-BWI etc. This is a strategy that CO never had the opportunity to try because they configured all 41 of their 757s for international use by the early/mid 2000s. They can't just take CO's ERJs or 738s and put them on these routes without other existing routes being trimmed or cut completely.

The 757s work well for UA on short haul routes like OMA-DEN, LAX-SFO, BOS-IAD, MCO-IAD, ORD-BWI etc. This is a strategy that CO never had the opportunity to try because they configured all 41 of their 757s for international use by the early/mid 2000s. They can't just take CO's ERJs or 738s and put them on these routes without other existing routes being trimmed or cut completely.

At the same time, CO also has a bunch of 739 and 753 that can do the high-density domestic hauls that the 752 fills in other carriers. painful boarding aside, the 753 is great for CO elites cuz it has 24F and plenty of free upgrades

Quoting CALPSAFltSkeds (Reply 3):
Not sure the Blue Sky would be a subfleet, that would depend on how many received in the long run. It's tough to keep exactly the same aircraft split up.
However, I agree that ps could be nice in the 738 with the new interior and LiveTV throughout.

Okay, not a subfleet exactly, but once enough frames are delivered, p.s. could become 738 Sky-only service. Trick is to have Boeing deliver some new 738s in p.s. configuration, then corral that subfleet. The other standard config Sky deliveries could be just rotated through the domestic system, or could be deployed in specific competitive markets like LATAM, where Sky could be a product differentiator.

Can confirm N76055 in Star colors with United titles/new logo.

Nice catch. Thin lettering. I've noticed some differences in the relative width of the letters on Star Alliance liveried planes:

The CO 757 and UA 777 appear to have "STAR ALLIANCE" in bold font, while the CO 777 lettering is narrower as seen on the 764 picture preivously posted. Plus the tulip UA logo has colors, not all-black.

149 whorsefield : Still in GLH fixing whatever went wrong. N501UA is now out and flying in the new colours.
150 United787 : This aircraft was painted in the blue tulip colors, I thought they were going to start with the old battleship grey aircraft first?
151 whorsefield : So was 465UA so im not entirely sure what the strategy is.

153 UATulipfan : I really, really hope that when the merger is fully integrated they continue to register planes the way UA does. It's so much easier and cleaner than
154 Antoniemey : I would imagine that, where possible, they would use the UA ending to the registrations. CO couldn't use their code as O is too easily confused with
155 FriendlySkies : Any word on how the 787s will be registered? I don't know if CO already has numbers assigned or if they would go with an NxxxUA number. The fact that
156 UA933 : Any word on the fact if it will be called 787-822 or 787-824? If I remember correctly they want to retain the CO operating certificate. Does this mea
157 timf : As of right now it looks like they will still have CO registration numbers and will almost certainly be -824s, not -822s. The following numbers appea
158 FriendlySkies : I don't think Boeing cares who's operating certificate it is, but moreso the ordering customer. -822 vs -824 might depend on whether the certificates
159 UATulipfan : Considering the airline is supposed to be "United", I would hope they use the -22 number that UA has had for 50 years, but with Smisek, you never know
160 scorpy : There are a bunch of 747's up to the high 20s with gaps for aircraft that were returned to the lessors.
161 whorsefield : Where did you find this info as a matter of interest?
162 Post contains images Jacobcal : Has anyone seen the A320's in the new UA livery or better yet, taken a picture of them? I guess 1 or 2 are painted but stil not up on any of the sites
163 Post contains links timf : I used the N-number database at www.faa.gov. You can search by airline/owner and it returns all active and reserved registration numbers.
164 Antoniemey : CO's Operating certificate will be the surviving one, but that has nothing to do with what customer code Boeing assigned the aircraft. The 787s that
165 UATulipfan : If the CO 787s haven't started production yet, then they'll probably be changed to x22s since this is UA now. My understanding is that the customer n
166 whorsefield : If you had read further up the thread then you would have found out that both ac are delayed until the end of the week, hence no pictures.
167 whorsefield : 419UA is scheduled to fly ORD-YVR on saturday.
168 n7371f : It looks like ship 612 (737-524) ferried Goodyear-Houston yesterday. This wasn't in storage for long. Anyone know if it's going back in scheduled or p
169 qfatwa : Skyliner news reports that olgan have added 2 more Dsh 8-400 aircraft - N341NG, N342NG. A photo by T DelCoro on flickr adds 753 N57857 in UNITED liver
170 drerx7 : No pics of the new UA birds yet huh? I know the 320s are still under wraps but what about the 2 75s?
171 Post contains images airforce915 : Here is N501UA at Chicago on 17 January. Not the best I took it with my cell phone

173 Jacobcal : My fellow CO/UA coworkers, Jeff's Journal has been updated with photos of an A319 (4053) painted in the new UA livery. Check it out! Jacob
174 UA_727 : ...I must say... Admittedly, I am one who is absolutely crushed about losing the United Tulip - and further, it's been really difficult for me to see
175 Post contains images LAXintl : Here is A319 N853UA taken at Denver today by a friendly spy..
176 rj777 : Now we've got an Airbus, how about a 747?
177 N766UA : The Airbus doesn't look half bad, but that freakin' globe is ruining it for me. For 20 years that globe has meant "Continental"- couldnt they have at
178 STT757 : It's been 16-17 years since I've seen an Airbus in CO colors, I'm excited to see one in person once again. That Airbus looks great!
179 Post contains images CODC10 : For 80 years, "United" has meant United...
180 Post contains links and images FriendlySkies : The Airbus definitely looks a lot better than the 737s... Tulip or no tulip (and put me in the boat of those who will miss it), the CO-ified United li
181 qfatwa : Based on the above photograph, better add 4053 - N853UA. _____________________________________________________________________________________________
182 whorsefield : I believe N671UA (763) is in paint as well.
183 UATulipfan : That doesn't look like the real United to me... That Airbus does not look good. I do not like the CO livery one bit, but the Airbus looks like one of
184 CO777DAL : I can empathize with the UA people that are missing the Tulip. But as a Continental frequent flyer, I love the new UA livery! When I see the aircraft,
185 UATulipfan : The whole point was to not drive away CO frequent fliers? So then what of the UA frequent fliers and employees? They don't matter? Calling this airli

187 CO777DAL : Had Smisek has his way the airline would have been call Continental. It's only called United cause of Tilton. But at the end of the day it is UNITED

193 FriendlySkies : I'm starting to suspect this may be the retrojet...there's no reason it should take this long to paint the standard UA livery, even if mistakes were

207 rj777 : ZKNCL, looks awesome! But I bet the Continental side is going to grow smaller faster than the United Blue/Battleship side.
208 qfatwa : "Reliable source" advises that N57862 is at Amarillo. 735 - 11651 is sold to a Russian operator. Great pie chart ZKNCL. So the summary is: United A319
