Since United has some damaged aircraft due to the hail storm at DIA, how will they replace aircraft in the short term? The article in USA Today mentions they will have some aircraft out of service for two weeks. Does anybody know if they will un-retire any mothballed planes from storage; maybe some 727-200's? I have no idea how long it takes to put a mothballed plane back into service.

Most likely from what I read in the Denver Post that UA will cut back its flight schedule to give time for the airline to do what amounts to re-skinning of the planes damaged in the hailstorm. In fact, UA says could cut up to 35-40% of its flights out of DIA until all planes are repaired.
