I just encountered a new UA booking plan for 777's. I was on my wasy to GRU from IAD. To GRU they use an old configured 777, however, no matter what your status is they WILL NOT upgrade you even with a systemwide until departure at the gate. No pre upgrading before because "if" they swap equipment at the last minute and they put on a NEW configuration 777 then they don't want to bump you backwards as there are less seats in F on the new 777. Makes sense- but I reserve my systemwides just for that - an OLD 777 so I can go from a full fare business seat in the OLD recliner and get the bed seat- old as it might be. The same policy exisits for people looking to bump up from economy to business. There are less biz seats on the new config.
So beware if you choose UA and wish to upgrade on a 777-- be sure to ask first if it's an old or new configuration and see if they can upgrade you- they will if F is empty enough that it does not exceed the new F seating and if they still have some revenue seats to sell. -- I did fly last night but my upgrade didn't clear until 10 minutes before boarding and did only because I was GS. (And they are NOT maintaining the seats at all- old, tattered cushions and the personal player was busted- the ice cream took an hour to melt enough to put a spoon in)

It may just be a temporary glitch of some type.

United.com won't display seat maps for ticketed flights I have from October 27th through January 5th.

Yeah, just had the old 777 back from Dulles on Friday. While I love the old F suites (collapsable armrest, the front table you can slide forward into, the width around your head in bed mode, how they face the windows and not inward), it's painfully obvious the company has just given up on maintaining these seats - some of them are truley pathetic. My armrest was destroyed (could be taken off completely), the tape player door was missing, reading lamp didn't work, the PTV woulsnt stand up straight (and it looked shot, with nothing but dark lines), and the seat controls looked filthy. this isn't the first time either - I flew to Chicago two weeks ago on an old 777 and it was a similar story. Same with the sfo-lax 777 I had last month, only that seat wouldn't even fully recline. woops!

It sounds like UA has determined it's cheaper to simply compensate their F flyers with generous vouchers/miles for these disasterously conditioned seats than actually fix them. They will all be gone by 2013...

In other news, on the CO side, the IFE on non-AVOD or DirecTV equipped planes have been replaced with UA's IFE programming. Continental Visions is no more. No loss there.

The in-flight music channels are also all new -- no more Zune or PMCO offerings.

Domestic F meals are also provisioned with the PMUA salt and pepper packets (albeit with the globe now). The salt and pepper shakers have been retired.

Anyone have a new PMUA paint schedule/timeline?

I have two repaint schedules/timelines for PMUA mainline aircraft, published by United in Dec 2010 and Mar 2011. Both of them match each other but neither one matches what has been completed so far. Here are the numbers...

by 6/30/2011 scheduled complete - 139
actual complete (back on the line) - 107

by 9/30/2011 scheduled complete - 197
actual complete (back on the line) - 127

I understand the CO fleet has been assigned fleet ID's to align them with UA nomenclature.

For example the United international 3-class 763 fleet is known as MI / 67I.

These ID numbers are used internally in everything from reservations to crewing to documentation.

Fleet / 2 Character ID / 3 Character ID.
737-500 = GV / 73K
737-700 = GW / 73W (IFE differences)
737-700 = GP / 73P
737-800 = GR / 73X (mid-cabin Lav)
737-800 = GT / 73T (short field performance package)
737-800 = GY / 73M (Air Mike)
737-800 = GX / 73H
737-900 = GZ / 73D
737-900ER = GO / 73E
757-200 = DX / 75W
757-300 = DZ / 75L
767-200 = DT / 76T
767-400 = DI / 76F (Intl version)
767-400 = DH / 76H (Domestic version)
777-200 = XZ / 77S

Additionally the to be retrofitted United domestic 767-300 aircraft which starts this winter will be known as ME / 67E once out in their new 2-class international configuration.


Lastly, I understand the planned 787-8 delivery configuration should be 36+183 of which 63 are Y+.

Great info...thanks. I had no idea CO took the short field performance which I believe was first developed for GOL. They must be the recent deliveries since that package has only been around 2-3 years. Any idea which ship numbers?

Also...do you have the UA internal codes?

A319 = AJ / 19J
A320 = AB / 20B
A320 = AD / 20D (ex TED 6 added seats)
A320 = AU / 20U (over-water)

757-200 = MP / 57p (p.s.)
757-200 = MQ / 57Q
757-200 = MU / 57U (overwater)
757-200 = MX / 57X (ETOPS)
767-300 = MD / 67D (2-class domestic)
767-300 = ME / 67E (future 2-class Intl)
767-300 = MI / 67I (3-class)
777-200 = XA / 77A (non ER, 2-class domestic)
777-200 = XC / 77C (non ER)
777-200 = XD / 77D (non ER, IPTE)
777-200 = XI / 77I (ER)
777-200 = XJ / 77J (ER, IPTE)
777-200 = XP / 77P (ER, crew module)
777-200 = XQ / 77Q (ER, IPTE, crew module)

There is a further 757 sub fleet version with only nose number differences in the MP and MX fleets to differentiate winglet vs non-winglet equipped.
Additionally there is a single MQ floating around with 4 additional economy seats and testing a new slimline cabin.

Are one of these subtypes basically the Air Mike version of the 73G because the only 73Gs without PTVs now are the ones flying out of GUM?

Are there any ways to identify an SFP 738 other than finding out the ID?

Thanks for sharing.

Are there any ways to identify an SFP 738 other than finding out the ID?

There are a bunch of small changes, however I believe the best visible difference is the tail skid.
The SFP uses the -900ER two-postion tail skid.

There was a thread about it

Other things like sealed slats are unlikely to be noticed unless you really know what you are looking at.

I understand the CO fleet has been assigned fleet ID's to align them with UA nomenclature.

For example the United international 3-class 763 fleet is known as MI / 67I.

These ID numbers are used internally in everything from reservations to crewing to documentation.

Fleet / 2 Character ID / 3 Character ID.
737-500 = GV / 73K
737-700 = GW / 73W (IFE differences)
737-700 = GP / 73P
737-800 = GR / 73X (mid-cabin Lav)
737-800 = GT / 73T (short field performance package)
737-800 = GY / 73M (Air Mike)
737-800 = GX / 73H
737-900 = GZ / 73D
737-900ER = GO / 73E
757-200 = DX / 75W
757-300 = DZ / 75L
767-200 = DT / 76T
767-400 = DI / 76F (Intl version)
767-400 = DH / 76H (Domestic version)
777-200 = XZ / 77S

Additionally the to be retrofitted United domestic 767-300 aircraft which starts this winter will be known as ME / 67E once out in their new 2-class international configuration.

Hi LAXintl !

Thanks for the info !

Will this also mean that the PMCO fleet will get UA four-digit fleentumbers eg 2822 = N222UA ?

They already have. Continental aircraft now have '0' or '00' or '000' in front of the ship number to mesh with the four digit UA codes. A CO 777 is now ship '0002'; a CO 764 is now ship '0064'; a CO 737 is now ship '0254'. They started this immediately upon the merger and initiation of painting.

That/s not the same system. All the CO planes just have a zero in front of the ship number; UA's aircraft have different numbers depending on confiugration. An IPTE 777-200/ER is 28xx, while a 777-200 with IPTE seats is 24xx.

Since all CO planes have a 0, there's no way to figure out the different versions unless you check on a computer. With UA's system you can visually just look at the aircraft to know which version it is.
