And it could be that the first UA 772A Hawaiian aircraft is in the shop. N215UA has been in SFO since 1/22 - not sure the reason. If new config, expected to keep 2-5-2 in back and move 7 across Business seats to the front of the aircraft with probably 5 rows of 7 for a config of 35-312.

photo confirms N832HK in new colors

I worked that one today, thought she looked a bit shiny...

Does anyone know if a standard interior color scheme has been picked for regional aircraft or if they're just leaving them with whatever they've already got (even after heavy checks) until they retire the current frames?

As much as I was a CO fan, I do prefer the UAEx interior scheme on the ExpressJet birds... I never got the lavender and grey mix on the COEx operation.

If the curet expectation are correct United will go from 6 777 in domestic configuration to 13 777. Why would United need so many domestic 777's? The only 2 markets to Hawaii where I can see UA needing to add domestic 777's is LAX-HNL and probably EWR-HNL. DEN-HNL market is all over the place at times its a 757, 767 and there was even a time when UA did use a 777 but it seems like a 767 should be enough capacity on this route and as far as IAD-HNL putting a 777 on that route would be to much capacity. The 764 UA currently uses on this route is probably the right amount that this market can support dumping a 777 with 315 seats in coach on this route just seems like a waste.

So besides the Hawaii market what other domestic markets need a 777 because since the merger sUA use of wide body aircraft on domestic routes has been reduced drastically in favor of increasing the number of non stops in particular markets and moving/refurbishing those domestic aircraft to international service/routes.

It will be 9, 3 more 772s will receive IPTE and 3 of the remaining old international config will go to domestic, plus the current 6.

The 14 763s that were converted to 2-class international were more or less replaced by 12 753s, and now the 4 764 HI configs will be replaced by 3 high density 772s. The original 6 will be kept domestic as well. They are not adding high-density capacity, they are standardizing around 2 types to shift other widebodies to international lift and growth. In fact,, they are actually reducing the total number high-density aircraft.

I expect they'll be utilized on all the mainland routes currently having widebodies to Hawaii -- SFO, ORD, EWR, IAD, and IAH -- which will, in the cases of EWR, IAD, and IAH, represent an increase in seats. LAX, now essentially all-757 to Hawaii, could see one, but I doubt it.  

GUM to NRT and HNL will use 3-4 frames of the total 9, and that pretty much does it. I wouldn't be surprised if HNL-NRT went this way too, even though that flight is now on 3-class aircraft.

Also, UA will no doubt occasionally continue to fly 763s, 764s, and 777s to the Islands in int'l config. as they do now.

No it's usually flown by the ER...the 77A can fly the route, and has as a sub however.

I don't think they have picked a standard interior color scheme for any of the aircraft yet....the 752 refresh uses the same fabric in Y as on the IPTE birds while new 739ERs use the CO standard.... 

I know the voices in my head aren't real but sometimes their ideas are just awesome!!!

Lately it's been getting A-model birds pretty regularly.

We 20FEB - N796UA (ER)

I've been surprised to notice a few A-model birds on SFO flights recently too, most notably on UA885 SFO-KIX a week or two ago. I had no idea the A-models could reasonably fly that far.

Any word on if 215UA has the updated HI config? It was there a month, surely that's enough time to replace 5-6 rows of seats? Or is the plan still to use p.s. seats vs the old international recliners?
