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.

N37464 is now en route BFI-MCO flight 6850/19Dec.


There was a list posted some time back that had the below 752s listed for retirement/lease returns. I don't have much confidence it as the Sep birds are still flying. Hoping someone could verify if the list has any value at this point.

Retirements on the list (standard Domestic 752 and Globe paint unless noted) - None of the below have undergone Interior Refresh at MCO

Sep 2012 527UA & 544UA (both in UA Blue) Note: 544 is ETOPS
Jan 2013 598UA
Feb 2013 532UA, 517UA (both are ps units with UA Blue paint)
March 2013 508UA (also ps unit)
May 2013 506UA & 573UA
July 2013 574UA
Sep 2013 503UA, 507UA, 511UA, 515UA, 519UA

Only reason I could see UA holding onto a more expensive bird is for ETOPS.

Also minor fuel savings/better range with Winglets

True, but I wonder if that would be enough to offset the lease terms. I'm sure the beancounters running UA have spreadsheets taking all this into account. Same reason they'd retire 598...the newest 752 in the pmUA fleet but probably also worth the most to a lessor.

I'm personally surprised they'd dump an ETOPS bird though, I figured the remaining 752s would be delegated to p.s. and Hawaii.

598 is also an ETOPs bird, so who knows. I was kind of shocked to see both 544 and 598 on that original list.

What is the status of the conversion of the Star Alliance aircraft from the tulip to the globe (in the small United title at the lower front)? I saw a 772 with the blue/orange tulip at IAD on Tuesday but was not close enough to get the registration.


I can't decide whether I miss the tulip or the bowling shoe more

That was N218UA. The other PMUA 772 in *A livery is N794UA, which has the new title and the nacelles painted gray. It's unknown whether 218 will be completely repainted or just get the title/nacelle touchup.

Also, 744 N121UA does not appear to have been updated.

All others have been updated.

N544UA is in VCV for either paint or a lease return. We'll just have to wait and see - it was not removed from the fleet in Sep and neither was N527UA.

Sorry to (temporarily) hijack the thread, but I was wondering how long it takes to install those new bins on the Airbus aircraft? Is it possible to do in a day, with a good crew to install them and the paper work, or it more of a day-long thing? 4295 sat in DEN all day in MX, until they pulled it out to do 779, so I was wondering.

Thanks!

From CALTECH's post on upgrade thread #13 Nov 10,2012

"What I have seen so far, new back and bottom cushions and covers, armrests and tray tables repaired/replaced, overhead bin doors and overhead bins being painted or new installs, new sidewall panels or maybe they are just getting paint too, DADO panels getting cleaned, new curtains, deco on galleys, closets lavs and kick panels redone.. . . . . "

I believe the carpet in galleys are being replaced with a rubberized product.

Indeed, which is supposed to improve the overall odor of the cabin, by removing ancient, coffee-soaked carpet.

There are 3 sUA752s aircraft in IND. N596UA (ETOPS unit) was to be the first with the new ps configuration and it's been in IND since 10/16. N520UA entered 11/15 and N516UA on 11/30. I've been checking daily for any movement. I assume all three are in for ps, but 516 and 520 are older units (w/o ETOPS or overwater equp).
While ps service doesn't require ETOPS or overwater certification, some on these boards have stated maybe ps units could be utilized on selected TATL routes. We'll have to see what units get the new ps configuration. For what its worth, with sCO 753s, there is somewhat less need for UA ETOPS units. Of course some of the 753s are covering former 763 routes to Hawaii.

As a mechanic, take my word for it- carpet in a galley is disgusting. Only slightly less gross than the idea of carpet in a lavatory.
SURE, it CAN be ripped up and cleaned, just like the rest of the carpet in the airplane, so I'm not sure what your point was there. But the fact is, they don't clean it nearly often enough. You'd need it shampooed almost daily. Not gonna happen.

And the coin mat (not sure who called it loin coin, but got a laugh out of that) isn't slippery when wet... hence the coins.

It is horrible, looks like they taped over a reseal of the seam between two sections to let it dry. We have rolls now that are wide enough to get rid of any seams. The smell coming from the carpet in the galleys on United Legacy birds is atrocious, and it was wet with a fluid that combined many smells into one awful smell. That wetness promoted corrosion in the floor. The carpet is the gross item, the mat can be wiped and it is not slippery at all, the little round raised things don't let one slip when the mat is wet. Plus the mat does not trap wetness or that absolutely awful smell in it.

Since you're a mechanic, I'll take your word for it   Sorry, I should have said I "prefer" the look and feel of carpeting, just a personal preference. But of course you're right, the rubber coin mat is much more sanitary and will be easier to keep clean.

BTW, kudos to the CO folks on keeping their aircraft interiors so clean. I've seen many CO birds coming through DEN and every time I step on board I'm always impressed at how clean and spotless the cabins are. Now if you guys could just replace those 737 seat cushions with something more comfortable   Keep up the great work!

I am both pleased and surprised by the interior refresh program on the 752s. Obviously, the new carrier can use the capacity on a number of domestic routes, but there are 739s incoming by the droves.

Do we know what fraction of the sUA 752s will be refreshed?

Are all the sUA 757's being retired imminently, or just the oldest ones? It doesn't seem that the A320/319s have any plans to put DirecTV on them, but their LCD monitors on both sides of the aisles are much better than the 757 tube TV's down the aisle. If any of them are staying, what do you think the odds are of those getting seatback TV's? They tend to fly longer routes, the ones that they charge more for the TV service as well. Tall people wouldn't have to duck anymore. I have seen people hit their heads on those, and shorter people still feel like they need to.

They would not be refurbishing those 752s if they were about to be retired. Some of the ones which are coming off lease and/or due for heavy maintenance are being retired. The 739s replace those 752s in terms of capacity.

s-UA flight attendant here--

s-CO maintenance techs, from which s-UA aircraft galleys are you removing carpeting? I haven't seen carpeting in our 757 galleys (F/C or aft Y/C galleys) in quite a while. Some years ago, UA began to remove the hideous, smelly, sticky gray carpeting from our galley floors and replaced them with a soft, dark gray rubber-like material. It's not like the "coin" mats I've been seeing on the refurbished s-UA 757s, but it's certainly not carpeting. There is indeed still a section of carpeting in the non-refurbished s-UA 757 aft galley in front of the aft lavatory door and the aft flight attendant jumpseats -- and that carpeting can still get wet and stinky -- but I haven't been on any s-UA 757 or A319/A320 with carpeting directly in the galley prep areas for at least a couple of years.

The s-UA 757 refurbish program is really making a difference. Thank you, s-CO techs, for your great work. The fresh seat covers, the (finally!) repaired rubber armrest caps, all the loose odds and ends in the cabin repaired or replaced... it's such a morale boost to be able to be proud of my product.

One comment about the interiors of our brand new 787s: the lighter blue (compared to s-UA's slightly darker blue) carpeting is already showing dirt. I flew aboard #3906 last week, and I noticed the carpeting around Door 2R back down the right aisle into BusinessFirst showed a brown track of dirt from footprints and cart "traffic." It looked really shabby and stood out in the otherwise beautiful, but tightly packed, cabin. Any word on whether newly delivered aircraft will be getting a new, hopefully darker carpet, more like the current s-UA design?

Thanks again for all your work on our fleets and the great comments on this website!

It is so much brighter. Believe the sidewalls and bins go out and get repaired and painted. Seats get new cushions and a different cover. IIRC, there is no difference in seat color between E+ and E. Have to check if they did go from warm white bulbs to cool white.

As far as the retirements and refurbishments go they don't make a whole lot of sense. Some 1990 builds are getting returned and other 1990 builds are getting the new mods by the s-CO mechanics.

Interestingly enough, there is one s-UA 757 with a slimline leather seat interior which I flew in October on IAH-EWR and back in 12/09 on EWR-DEN. What are the odds of that happening!

I bet it all comes down to the lease rates that the owner wants. In some cases I bet the owner wanted more so UA decided to just give them back.

I am sure that UA would have preferred to keep the newer birds, but the owners have a say in the process.

Actually, you'll see ashtrays in nearly all airplane lavs, even the 787 as I recall. The reasoning is that even if a passenger were to go for an illicit smoke, he or she would still need a safe place in which to extinguish and dispose of the cigarette!

Santa Boeing gave us a gift in the form of an extra 788 this year.      
Now all we need do is keep'em all flying....

That makes six, pretty impressive considering the delays had UA revise their fleet plan calling for only four to be delivered by the end of the year. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the remaining 5 sCO 787-8s should be delivered in 2013? And the sUA 787-8s as well as the sCO 787-9s should begin deliveries in 2014. So far the permanent International routes identified for 2013 are:

IAH-LOS
DEN-NRT
LAX-NRT
LAX-PVG

With 11 787-8s in the fleet in 2013 obviously there are going to be more routes announced soon, perhaps another four or five routes?

The sUA 788s were not originally supposed to start coming online until 2016...did they speed things up?

Is Boeing still on track for a 2014 in service dates for the 789?

Eventually the 737-9 will replace all the domestic 757s in the fleet. That's not a myth and nobody can argue it.

Well gee, then they are wasting lots of dollars on interior refurbishments then for the 75

I would have figured they would select the newest sUA 757s for PS conversion, as those are probably going to be the last ones to leave the fleet. Probably to be replaced by the 737-9MAX later in the decade.

UA would not refurbish the 757s if they were quickly going to park them. This gives UA the operational flexibility to ramp up service to existing cities and open up new routes.

The refurbishment cost is actually fairly low and while the domestic 752s are on their way out the process will take the better part of this decade. It's worth spending a few bucks to improve the interiors in the mean time.

that's the thing though: they are returning some of the newer models and refurbishing some of the oldest ones. Odd considering the CO model was being super anal about having a young fleet. I guess they are taking a cue from DL on keeping older planes but dubbing the interiors up.

Based on the feedback thus far, it doesn't exactly sound like a cheap task: new carpets, cushions, lavs, lighting etc. Granted a lot cheaper than taking brand new airplanes, however.

It's all based on lease payments. If UA can negotiate favorable terms given the aircraft's age, anticipated cost of maintenance, refurbs, etc., then the 757s will stick around. If the lessor feels it can obtain a better rate elsewhere (e.g. cargo conversion) then that airplane will leave the fleet at the end of the lease term. Simple as that, nothing sentimental or "UA vs. CO" about it. The difference now is that CO brings an order book to the table that gives the company some leverage to negotiate better lease terms. If the rent is over a certain threshold, it becomes more cost effective to retire the a/c and replace one-for-one with a new 737-900ER.

Carpets, cushions, light bulbs (not lighting - just different bulbs) and getting rid of the floral wallpaper in the lavs is pretty cheap....new seats, monuments, IFE and overheads would be the expensive items and they are not changing those out.

I always wondered why they couldn't take the drop down LCDs that have been removed from the sCO 757, 753s, 737NGs etc.. and install them on sUA 757s and 777s to replace the CRTVs. Cost ?

Did I hear that they are adding changing tables to the 757 bathrooms and are changing the sinks out to one in which you can actually wash your hands in a sanitary way (no touch and longer spout)?

That would probably cost a lot for re-wiring issues. The biggest advantage to the LCDs is weight savings but it's not like a beast like a domestic 757 would even need that. I suppose they could have done what AA and US did and put the newer LCD screens in the isles where the CRTs are now. What I wonder is did they actually take the CRTs out and "re-tune" them so to speak for color enhancement? Most s-UA 757s I've been on have had decent CRTs, nothing like AA's that are completely out of whack.

Also does anyone know if some will be outfitted with winglets?

Regarding the s-UA 757 refurbs, my understanding is that we are not installing changing tables in the lavatories. I asked about this, and was told adding changing tables would have required further FAA certification, and that wasn't in the budget or timeframe.

I imagine installing drop-down LCDs would have also required additional FAA certification and certainly a bigger budget, so no new video screens, either.

The s-UA p.s. remodels are, however, getting completely new lavatories and seatback AVOD, as many of you already know.

Again, I'd love to know from which s-UA aircraft the CO maintenance techs are removing galley carpeting. I haven't seen actual carpeting in our aircraft galleys for at least a couple of years. We currently have dark gray, rubber matting in most, if not all, of our aircraft galleys. On the s-UA 757, there is still carpeting between the aft lavatory and the aft F/A jumpseats, and that carpet can certainly get nasty.... Happy to see the new "coin" mats being installed, though I think our dark gray rubber mat is perfectly useable, too.

Well that is too bad...guess I will continue to avoid the 757 when flying with the little one. It is quite shocking that they can't figure this out. Noone seems to know where it is acceptable to change a diaper. If you change in the seats you will get yelled at by a FA and it is not pleasant for other pax. On the galley floor is disgusting for the baby and unsanitary because food is prepared there...

Not at this point the 752's are being redone with lie flat seats in J and AVOD in Y+ and Y. Which in itself is a change...no more F class and Y will be added.

The configuration is to be 28 lie flat J, 48E+ and 66Y.

If you look at the PMCO 752 (16BF, 45E+, 108Y=169), add three rows of J behind door 2, which would take J back to the overwing exits. E+ would be 8 rows starting at the exits, then 11 Y rows.
http://www.united.com/web/en-US/cont.../inflight/aircraft/757/200/v2.aspx
Total 142 seats vs. current 110 seats on ps configuration.

As for 739s replacing 752s, it will happen over time, but almost 100 units are not coming right away. In fact some of the 150 739ER/Max may replace Airbuses remaining 735s and maybe at least some 73Gs.

752s will be flying domestic, some Hawaii and TATL for quite a while. p.s. may stay 752 for years, especially since UA could keep these units on lower utilization schedules and p.s. flights constantly visit maintenance bases.

You're right, I went back and checked the press release and it states the sUA 787s will be delivered starting in 2016, I think the A350s will probably be around then or 2017 if they switch to the A350-1000. That leaves a gap of three years between the last sCO 787-8 delivery in 2013 and the first sUA 787-8 in 2016. When are the 787-9s scheduled to be delivered, 2014? Hopefully the 787-9s will fill that gap.

2012-2013
11 sCO 787-8s

2014-?

Keep in mind, UA should have the flexibility under the Boeing contracts to switch out sub-types. They also have 50 options for the 787s as well. This gives UA the ability to replace the 772s with 789s over time. It would also give them the option for the 787-10s when they are offered.

I suspect Airbus would have no issue changing some of the 25 359s to 351s. UA also has options on the 350s as well.

Any chance that 772 (A model) in old international configured N768UA , in SFO since 12/26, is in for conversion to Hawaiian configuration?

Does anyone know what's going on with sUA 752 N559UA - Flight Aware shows it arrived in MIA 12/16?

738 to INT:
N24202 appears sked into INT 6857/2Jan.
News stories state NS Aviation at INT was awarded a contract to have two lines of upgrade/maintenance for United. INT has already added DTV to 8 739s and 5 738s to date with a 738 and 753 in INT at this time.
N24202 is the oldest domestic 738 and already has DTV. My guess is that maybe INT will be doing WiFi installations. Anyone have an idea or info?

The last one, N666UA is sked to depart SFO Flight 6853/4Jan en route HKG for 2 Class international Lie flat upgrade. They've been using N666UA the past couple weeks on charters and for Holiday lift.
Here's the configuration. (34/210)

Here's a question,

When the conversions of the 14 763s are complete, approximately how many daily flights will they support? And are they all accounted for in the current schedules.

They actually aren't all that old -- from 1998 to 2001. They were originally delivered for high density replacements to the D10.

I don't know of future schedules, but right now, 2 International 763s are in GSO maint., 3 763s are in HKG for upgrade, N666UA has probably made its last revenue flight. N672UA will return completed in a couple days.
So, of 21 International, 19 should be flying and of 14 2 class, 10 should be flying and the 11th available in maybe 5 days.
As far as what the 763ER 2 class will fly, one would suspect TATL (maybe 2 flights per aircraft per day), some South America (1 flight per day), plus maybe some domestic positioning flights and potential of very limited Hawaii service.

Right now, the 10 flying 2 class units are flying. IAH-EZE/LIM, EWR-IST/MUC/EWR
My guess is when a couple more come out of HKG, the remaining 14 in UA Blue will go into a paint line or two.

I think he's talking about the configuration, not the aircraft's age. Overhead screens, narrow bins, 6 across 38 inch pitch in Domestic F. Not sure if anything in the interior has seen any upgrade since delivery.

With the shift of 763s to 2-class international, makes me wonder if the 789 will end up being 3-class international. Seems as if those 763s are taking some of the roles originally intended for the 787.

Thanks for the correction and history. I see from Planespotters that 3210 was Boeing 738 line number 56 and 3202-3209 are Boeing 738 line numbers between 581-647. It looks like 3202 came into the fleet after 3250.

Should be 5 788's in 2013...assuming that Boeing is ontime with the 789 and United has not changed the models of any of its aircraft on order the 789's should start coming online in 2014.

So that leaves N87527 as the last 'regular' 738 without DTV (aside from GUM-based and the mid-lav aircraft).

It is a bit interesting that 13 738s (and 13 739s) that have recently received DTV haven't gotten E+ either during the DTV mod or shortly afterwards. I realize that STC may be an issue for the Sky 738s, but the rest shouldn't have that barrier.

Yes, 13 738s are without E+ (excluding Air Mike & Mid Lav aircraft).
4 are Sky interior with DTV and would require an STC for E+.
9 are non-Sky with DTV and should not need an STC since they are in the same config as 3507-3518 (SFP-Short Field Package).
Maybe waiting for 3527 to get DTV for this batch of 9.

2 739s (3443/3444) with DTV shouldn't need an STC to get E+. Same config as 3413-3442.
11 739s (3445-3455) with Sky and DTV and would need an STC for E+.
9 739s (3456-3464 with Sky were delivered with E+ and woould need an STC for DTV.

Interesting that INT is getting expanded action - were to have 2 737 lines for mod.
NOTE: 738s, E+ was not added to several aircraft while DTV was installed.
737s have been getting DTV, but 3202 (already has DTV) entered 1/1, maybe for WiFi
753s starting to go through INT - not sure if E+/DTVand/or WiFi - we should know soon.
I show 3 aircraft in INT with 753 N75853 entering tonight - that would be 4 until N57852 exits.

For the ExpressJet CRJ operation: N820AS and N830AS are in the new colors. There is at least one more that is also painted but I forgot to note which one it is.

Incidental to this, there's at least one XE ERJ that's in blues with a white, gold, and grey nose... Obviously that's a matter of spare availability, but it looks MUCH more odd than the white ERJs with blue noses do...

Why have the 763's and 744's been at nearly a standstill? It seems a couple of 744's have been painted recently, but they were some of the first, and then they all but stopped. And the 763's literally did stop?

Is there a target date to have everything painted for Mainline, because I imagine it depends on these two fleets. Also, are the 3 class 763's going to get winglets as they get painted?

I have no inside info on your questions, but can only provide a hopefully educated guess
Top priority on the 763s must be the 2 class lie flat conversion and that program is winding down. 11 of 14 are completed with the last three in HKG now.

Someone mentioned on this thread, I believe, that the 3 class 763 aircraft (oldest in the 763 fleet) may be replaced by 787s in a few years. Along with the 744 retirements at some point, maybe the plan to paint these aircraft last is to make sure these aircraft only get painted once prior to retirement.

The 772s are nearing completion with only 2 left plus maybe just a touchup on N218UA (Star with tulip logo). Hopefully when completed, an additional paint line may be moved to the 744 or 763 fleet.

I doubt the 3 class 763s will get winglets (5 already completed do not have winglets).

There are currently two WB paint lines (VCV and AMA). If the 744s go in nose to tail at AMA, it will take until about June 1st to complete the fleet with one paint line. If the second paint line at VCV finishes the 772, then moves to 763s, I don't think they will be completed by June 2013. Let's hope a third or even fourth line starts as the 763 2 class program releases the three remaining aircraft at HKG.

Harder to cover these birds when they are removed from service for a few days. Less flexibility than the fleets with several dozen to a hundred.

Yes the retrofit is called NuLook PBI.

The 3 cabin 763's have a product called NuLook RI installed in the forward half of the cabin.

I have searched several flights in August that say that they will be on 735's, which I do not believe. I'm sure the plane would change and they will be retired before then, at the rate they've been leaving now.

763 N670UA was in HKG 49 days from 10/9/12 to 11/26/12 for the 2 class Lie Flat upgrade that includes winglets, all new seats, AVOD, interiors, bins, etc.

I'm not sure if that includes heavier maintenance as N676/665/666/671/672UA, which all went through the same mod, have all been to GSO after the mod for 2 to 3 weeks.

For an a/c to be in HKG for 49 days sounds like the mods plus a C or D check. That's a long time to be out of service.

This could complete the 738 fleet except for the mid lav and Micronesia aircraft. My records show N87527 does not have DTV, but United.com flights operated by this aircraft have DTV as past of the flight amenities.
If INT is to continue with DTV mods, the next ones in should be either the last 3 non-ETOPS 753s or 739s with E+ (#3456-3465), but that batch 10 ten aircraft requires an STC.

Thanks for the info. Must be ITPE.

735 probable fleet exit:
N14629 sked into HOU 6857/13Jan - most likely to exit fleet.

SFOMM was doing all IPTE that is not included in a heavy MX check, so they are not just doing IPTE, it's also heavy maintenance

This was a fleet exit and return to lessor. At the time or return it was the oldest CRJ-200 in OO's fleet.

Thanks, and it surely is maintenance, but ITPE may be included. PEK was doing ITPE on 772s in Aug and Sep 12 and N799UA does need the retrofit. We'll know in 4 -7 weeks.

735 Fleet Exit:

N14628 ferried this morning 6868/14Jan IAH-HOU. This puts 4 735s in HOU, presumably all for fleet exit. N18622, N17627, N14629 & N14628.

772 ITPE:
N798UA sked for 857/16Jan
N786UA appears to be entering SFO from flight 886/15Jan - aircraft due a ITPE mod.

Anyone have any idea why N787UA was in VCV? It just ferried back to LAX. My guess is that it'll fill in for the 787 for now.

Flight 6863.

A previous thread said it was being painted in the new UA livery. It will fill in on the LAX-NRT run.

Why is flight 32 cancelled and replaced by this plane on flight 1760? Why not just run flight 32 with an equipment change?

From another thread: It has to do with the fact the flight crews are not yet combined and with the 787 grounded, this flight will be run with a sUA crew on one of their 777s. The 787 is crewed by sCO employees. Once the merger of the groups is complete, this sort of thing will not likely need to occur.
