BROUGHT from previous thread to allow for comment:

I have done an analysis of the Skywest CR200 fleet - 63 are listed as part of the United Express operating fleet.

This number should currently be 70 of a total of 76 possible aircraft.

Three are in Skywest house colours - 947, 951, 953.

Skywest has commenced operating for US Airways in Phoenix - already painted are 906, 944, 955.
There will be 14 CRJ200s operating in Phoenix, so it is possible that more will change operations.

This is a list of 76 registrations:

Here is a video of the new economy plus section in one of CO 737-800s. It is a BIG improvement!!!! DirecTV, E+, soon wifi, newer planes = I's say the best economy seats of any US carrier.

I flew on CO ship #203 last week IAH-SAN and was "upgraded" to an E+ seat. I must say this is a nice improvement to the UA product, and hopefully I'll get seats in that section in the future. It's amazing how much space just 5"or 6" adds to the row.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

How is the whole E+ thing going to work? By that I mean, will they be exclusive forElite members? How more expensive will they be if they are for purchase? By how much will the capacity of the plane be reduced to?

Also one more question, by when will wifi be installed in all of the aircraft? Will it be free?



I apologize in advance for the numerous questions

I didn't look for it. I did not see anything mentioned about it. Maybe when they do the WiFi they would put it in as I think the have to change a lot more ( wiring) than taking out a row of seats.

This makes a clean 60% completion.

An analysis of photographs of Commutair Dh 8-200 aircraft adds 6 more aircraft with UNITED titles:
N361PH
N362PH
N365PH
N366PH
N368PH
N374PH

leaving 4 w/o UNITED titles [from photographs]:
N351PH
N359PH
N360PH
N379PH

If anyone can advise that any of the above have been UNITED titled, much appeciated.

As of March 3rd, when UA migrates to Shares, it will be as follows for reserving E+:
Silver - Day of Departure
All others at booking time

As for paying to get E+ it will be as is today, variable based on length of flight. The longer the flight the more you pay.

Also available is an annual option, but terms of that option have not been announced for time post-March 3rd.

How many seats are being removed are based on the aircraft size. For the 757-2 they removed 6 seats (1 row) based on the information I have seen.

From previous thread, I am sure that a couple of these may be wrong and others can elaborate more as I know the 738 fleet has 2 sub-fleets (mid-cabin lav vs none) that will be somewhat aligned in this conversion.

Also one more question, by when will wifi be installed in all of the aircraft? Will it be free?

I am not aware of any pricing being announced but since it is meant to be for domestic & international travel I highly doubt it will be free.

I didn't look for it. I did not see anything mentioned about it. Maybe when they do the WiFi they would put it in as I think the have to change a lot more ( wiring) than taking out a row of seats.

Does anybody know the status of Channel 9 installations on CO a/c?

Im assuming this is aircraft #6675? And are they supposed to take as long as the sCO 764 cabin refits?

Should take about 1-month on the 763W.

Once completed new nose numbers will be 61xx

Last one should be complete by November.

As of March 3rd, when UA migrates to Shares, it will be as follows for reserving E+:

All others at booking time

Such a disappointment for me, as I missed Gold this year... the past year of having comp upgrades to E+ at booking even at Silver was awesome... now, I'm guessing if any are even available at check-in, it'll be middle seats :/

Yes, this is a big point that many Silvers are calling out but from a higher elite perspective I think they are making the right choice. I booked a roundtrip EWR-SFO on Friday of last week for Monday departure. I paid almost 2K for the ticket and I got a middle seat E (on a converted 757-200). That SUCKS for me as a Platinum. I hope that it will make it better for those high elite close-in bookings to get a 'better' seat
