I'm pretty sure EWR-EZE is operated by a 3 class 763 though (which doesn't have winglets).

It started with a 3-cab 763ER, but has been a 2-cab 67E for quite some time now, with winglets.

If the terms of the lease are less favorable than another 752 I doubt UA cares what it has installed. Only reason I could see UA holding onto a more expensive bird is for ETOPS.

184 CALPSAFltSkeds : Thanks for the update, but are you sure on the 735s? Looking at the chart, with 737s all lumped together It could be that all 735s are leaving, balan
185 United1 : Think its 19 737-900ERs actually...the 5 active 737-500s should leave the fleet this year. YE2013 mainline should look like... 23 747-400 33 777-200E
186 Post contains images United1 : 24...per the conference call actually.... to many 737s to keep track.
187 tommy767 : Wonderful. Are they going to have the back breaking seats installed on the new 739s as well?
188 United1 : The "backbreaking seats" are the Koito ones....can't install those. UA has been installing BE slimline on its newest 737s IIRC.
189 FriendlySkies : Which, to be fair, have not received stellar reviews either.
190 United1 : No they are not as comfortable as the Recaro ones on the pmUA fleet but they are lightyears ahead of the Koito ones. On a completely unrelated note p

193 CALPSAFltSkeds : I concur with your numbers on the YE2013 fleet. However, it would be +22 739ERs for 2013: 3401-3464 (64) on property, 3465 delivered in 2013 plus 21
194 United1 : Conference call this morning states 24 737--900ERs and 2 787-8s....I agree with the math you did so clearly something is a little out of whack.
195 CALPSAFltSkeds : Well, there's something going on with the math. How about this to try and clarify? Assume the 735s go away. If any 735s stay then the 739ER numbers w
