On a side note, N593UA is the only sUA 752 wsith leather seats. The seat map on United.com shows a different configuration 24F, 84E+, 90Y=198. There's no way this aircraft has 16 more seats than the regular 752, especially with 84E+ seats. Does anyone know about this aircraft.

Quoting CALPSAFltSkeds (Reply 4):
Boeing's website shows the 772-200 (A) has a range of 5240NM. In comparison, the 764ER, which has been flying for a long time EWR-HNL has a range of 5625NM per Boeing's website.
I hope EWR-HNL and IAD-HNL will be operated by two class international 764. Both times I've flown the EWR-HNL-EWR nonstops (2008, 2012) have been on International configured 764s. The flight we took last months was one of the newly reconfigured with the AVOD, made a huge difference on the almost ten hour flight.

Quoting ordramper98 (Reply 6): 5093 is actually 24F/162Y. When they put the slimline seats in, they were able to add an extra row of seats. The extra row was added at the overwing emergency exits, and they only added 4 seats not 6.
The seat maps on United.com don't match up. Going to the United website Inflight services>Aircraft>Boeing 757 to look up different versions, it appears 5093 has a row 33 added and all other seats are the same as the regular version. That version is shown as 24F/50E+/114Y= 188.
Looing at flight information for Flight 328/1Oct, the seat map shows totally different numbering and row 7 ABCD, which is in the entry doorway. the E+/Y split looks weird and seat numbers end with Row 35 vs. Row 40.

Quoting n515cr (Reply 17): Quoting CALPSAFltSkeds (Reply 273):
Ferries 6880/6867 SFO-HNL-HKG 10/1. Either N666UA N667UA or N670UA). Anyone know which one?
Looks like it's 670UA as the 666 and 667 are currently in the air on domestic flights as I type this. Assuming that's correct, only 5 left to be converted.
I agree, but haven't seen a ferry of a 763 from SFO or HNL. Did 670UA move to HKG without getting onto FlightAware? Can anyone confirm its in HKG or still in SFO?
By the way, did anyone notice that Micronesian 73G N 13720 ferried GUM-HNL-LAX-AMA 9/27 and is now on the way back to GUM via LAX and HNL. Aircraft was in AMA 7+ days. Wondering if this was for paint - the aircraft is (or was) in Star paint. That seems like a lot of ferry mileage for paint of MX work, which you'd think could be done in HKG.
There are 6 done and in service, 2 are in HKG now, 3rd will ferry on the 7th.
Quoting ordramper98 (Reply 14): N663UA is a 1998 build 763, it's currently in a three class configuration but it's been rumored that this aircraft is going to be converted to the new international two class configuration.
Not. Just in for heavy maintenance, found a couple of issues.

Quoting milestones787 (Reply 22): With the 787 coming into the fleet, is it known when the 767s will start to be retired?
Not soon enough. Just back from ORD>AMS on an PMUA763 in Y and it was aweful. Poor condition, TV was small and yellowed out, poor padding on the seats, etc. It was a long 9:09.
I know that the 11 788's are to replace the 10 762's that are leaving (5 gone already) and one can only hope that the reconfigured 2 class 763's are to replace the old 763's. All UA's projections are for flat or low international growth ( a route to 3 per year) so we should see some of these phase each other out. New 789's due in 2014 should retire the rest of them.
25 CALPSAFltSkeds: See 763ER Flight 6869/5Oct sked SEA-HKG. Assume this is N670UA heading into Mod, rumored to leave 10/7. Will monitor to see if this ferry is real. 735
26 n515cr: That would put the tally at 285/355...80.3% for mainline! (752 N557UA is in new colors, and also see 319's 805 and 809 in new livery on the wiki)
27 FL787: On the last thread there was discussion about the E70 livery. I just saw 632RW and it has the correct font and style. So I guess 638RW is just a one-o
28 n515cr: N206UA is out of the shop and shows IPTE config. 7 to go (with one in progress). 73G N13720 is also out but does not show E+/
29 CALPSAFltSkeds: Probably 2 in process. It looks like N786UA is now in SFO as the flights on FlightAware for N786UA are shown on United.com as being flown with N206UA
30 CALPSAFltSkeds: 763ER 2 class: N670UA is sked to ferry 6880 GSO-SEA & 6859 SEA-HKG 10/7 for mod. N667UA is sked to ferry 6879 SFO-GSO 10/7 - probably next to HKG.
31 CALPSAFltSkeds: N670UA ferried GSO-SEA en route HKG for 2 Class 763ER retrofit mod. N667UA ferried SFO-GSO for mx and probable prep for 2 class upgrade at HKG N39726
32 CALPSAFltSkeds: 320 Globe paint: N449UA to exit GLH ferry 6849/8OCT. N498UA sked to enter GLH ferry 6862/8Oct.
33 VC10er: When United removes Global First seats (like converting a 3 class international 767) are those 6 seats go to a garbage heap or onto a yet to be recon
34 Jaxs170: On the ExpressJet CRJ side, N829AS is now in the new scheme. There are only 14 CRJs assigned to the United Express operation. Word is they are working
35 na: So 80% of the fleet wear the "new" livery. Why only 35% of the 744s?
36 cosyr: No Global First seats are being taken out at this time (unless the rumors are true that 3 already converted 772 would become the additional HI aircra
