Quoting qfatwa (Reply 1):
>>>>PAINT United - Mainline REMAINING = (23 of 58 B744/B763 aircraft)
B744 (14/23) 104-105 [2], 107, 116-119 [4], 127-128 [2], 175, 177, 180, 197, 199.
B763 (22/35) 643-644 [2], 647, 652-653 [2], 656-657 [2], 663-677 [15].

Should be 22 of 58 if the individual counts are correct.



I was raised by a cup of coffee.

I just realized its been a bit over 7-years since UA first announced its new international cabins in 2006, and only now is the IPTE project coming to completion.

I also remember in 2008 speaking with a SVP about his plans to bring the product to p.s., and this also is only now getting done as well.

So considering the huge lead times, I certainly hope the product planning group is looking at the next generation premium product. With such slowness even if announced in the next year, might be 2020+ before its all rolled out across the fleets!

The industry is moving ahead. In the US, both AA and DL have upped their games while foreign competitors continue to innovate with ever more elaborate onboard offerings.

Though while this might be a bruising tug of war internally again to get the marketing, revenue and finance people to settle on configuration that maximizes revenue onboard for the space taken up, I think it would be dangerous for the company to sit on its hands for more than a couple years.
I also imagine this is the time to have the heavy discussion if first class stays, or if the airline settles around business first as the path forward.

Be nice if the A350 arrives with all new cabin product imo

4260, 4655 4711 and 4629 are now labeled 20S (AS) as well & have the new slimline seats showing in United.com.

Known AS aircraft:
UA 0733 DEN SFO 20S 4668


On united.com now showing having a row 12 and a row 38 in economy:

UA 0789 DEN RNO 20S 4260
UA 0311 DEN SMF 20S 4711
UA 0379 IAD MCO 20S 4629
UA 0728 IAH DCA 20S 4655


I am surprised at 4260 undergoing the refresh as this was an ex-blue leather aircraft. It might have been a test to see how long the conversion would be for the type.

Question on A320 seat conversions:
So far we have had 6 conversions to the slimline seats.
4260 (Previous ExTed configuration)
4628/4629/4655/4668 (Previous UA configuration)
4711 (Overwater previous UA config)
FYI: #4628 not showing WiFi on United.com. Also, flight amenities on all above show overhead and Channel 9. Is this an error?

With the new configuration, shouldn't the previous UA configurations and previous ExTed configurations be the same?
Is there something else that identified ExTed vs UA units?
If not, why not merge the fleet into 42XX or 46XX series?

73G Maint:

Looks like 2 units are in mod at MCN as N518UA and N546UA are both in MCN nad on the conversion list. There are no ps conversion aircraft at GSO at this time.

The 788 is going to be used on the route, but not any particular tail #. They cycle through the (limited) 787 network, DEN-IAH/NRT, LAX-IAH/NRT, IAH-LOS, and soon to be SEA-NRT.

It was my understanding that the first A320 reconfigure was going to ply the skies solo for an amount of time to determine the pros/cons of the new interior, so tweaks could be made before going full board. Guess not.

801 seeks to have made a 45 minute loop around MCO earlier this month...that's the last activity I can find for it. Probably still undergoing induction at MCO.

753 - 9/9 [100%] - Excluding 12 Hawaiian configured aircraft with overhead TV (3860-3871)

Why did UA choose to only install DirecTV on 9 of this planes while leaving the other 12 with overhead TV? I could understand this choice if the 12 hawaiian configured 753's remained on the West Coast and only served the West Coast Hawaii market, but this is not the case. So why were 9 of these aircraft singled out while the rest were not and does UA send the 753's that have DirecTV installed to Hawaii or are those aircraft restricted to the lower 48?

801 is not flying yet. Not sure when it goes into service. SUA pilots won't be trained for a bit yet (737 bid has to be awarded) but I am guessing the first crews will start training in Oct. as far as flying the planes, the way I understood the MOU is that ( from a flight deck standpoint) any 737 pilot can fly any 737 after SLI. I guess you could be on a sCO 737 flown by sUA pilots with sCO FAs. Conversely 801 would be staffed by sUA FAs but could be flown by sCO pilots. Once IT can integrate the arbitrated seniority list,cockpits can be mixed.

If not, why not merge the fleet into 42XX or 46XX series?

Minor Differences:
sUA aircraft seat 138 - no row 12 and last row is 37. blue seats cloth.
ExTed aircraft seat 144 - there is a row 12 and last row is 37. blue seats leather.
320S seats 150. -there is a row 12 and last row is 38. gray seats leather.

320s-
They took out a few closets in economy, Added ovens in economy, removed an oven in first, realigned all the emergency equipment, moved the onboard wheelchair among other cabin upgrades.

Only the 41xx series does not have a "test case" yet of the fleet. But it is almost identical to a 42xx.

The configuration is posted on UA's website, but it does not have any information about the entertainment. I'm sure J seats will have the armrest TV's, but are the putting the old Intl config sUA Y seats in with seatback TV's on a loop, or are they sticking with overhead monitors?

All of the overhead monitors/and audio entertainment is getting removed during the reconfiguration process. These reconfigured 777s will be the first in the fleet to receive the streaming content as well as the satellite Wifi enabling it to work between HNL - GUM etc.

Does anyone know if all the PS 757s will eventually get winglets? It looks like 11 out of the eventual 15 new PS aircraft have winglets already but 568, 587, 588, and 598 do not. Given that these birds will be around awhile flying routes where winglets are certainly advantageous, will these 4 see winglets installed soon?

I looked at the configuration on UA's website as well and noticed no inflight entertainment. Are you saying that UA has no form of inflight entertainment on the reconfigured Hawaii 777 except WIFI?

I hope that is not the case because that would be plain stupid. Its one thing to install WIFI only on the Airbus fleet most of those aircraft are used for flights that are 5.5 hours or less. But if UA is using WIFI only on the Hawaii 777 fleet I certainly hope they also install in-seat power throughout the entire aircraft because WIFI eats up the battery and there is no way anyone devise would last the entire 8+ hour trip to HNL from Chicago or if UA in the future launches these 777 from IAD and EWR those are 10+ hour trips. Although most devises say the battery will last 10, 12, or 14 hours most of those estimates were taken while the WIFI signal was turned off once you turn on WIFI you can cut your battery life in half if not more and UA executives should know this. The Airbus fleet does not have in-seat power throughout the entire aircraft I certainly hope UA did not make the same mistake on the reconfigured Hawaii 777 because it would most certainly be a huge mistake to not have install in-seat power at every seat on these aircraft if WIFI will be the only form of inflight entertainment.

They are planning to install streaming wireless entertainment, same as the Airbus should be getting. What I'm not sure of, and what that seating chart shows, is if power ports are being installed at some point. I would like to think they will be, just maybe not at first.

In-seat power is coming? What sense does that make? Why didn't or why isn't UA installing in-seat power at every seat when the reconfiguration takes place? I was recently on a A320 reconfigured with WIFI and a quite a few people were upset that there was no in-seat power to charge their devises and that is for those of us who had devises. United is really piece milling this whole thing together in a way that makes no since. I understand using WIFI to provide streaming content as the sole form of inflight entertainment but what I don't understand is how UA executives decided not to include power ports at every seat instead deciding to install power ports at a later date if what you say is correct. It is a dumb decision that follows a pattern of dumb decisions that have been made since the beginning of this merger and quite frankly passengers are running out of patience with UA.

I most certainly hope you are correct and UA starts installing power ports on these planes very soon.

Installing in-seat power is a seperate certification process. There are likely several reasons why it was not done at once. Wiring up an entire a/c takes time and must be certified. It might not have been possible to do it at the same time the rest of the reconfig takes place.

Folks will be able to use their own devices for perhaps six hours (assuming they are fully charged) depending on the device. If they fly in C class, power is already there. In Y class, it will be sometime next year.

Regarding the Airbuses, if they are all getting reconfigured with Slimline seats in the near future, why spend the extra cash to put power ports on seats that will be removed? However, it looks like the Slimline aircraft don;'t have power.

As for the 777 Hawaiian aircraft, you'd think the reconfiguration process would include power. N213UA is getting changes only in the front of the aircraft (except for overhead video removal) as F seats are replaced by old business seats and a couple lavs are removed.

Can anyone tell us the difference in WiFi and streaming free content by WiFi? How will the free vs. paid internet access be handled?

Does this mean that N598UA had winglets installed in MIA, N588UA had them installed in GSO and N568UA is having them installed in MCN? You'd think UA would pick one station to do the winglet installs instead of installing three sets at three different maintenance facilities. Can someone confirm if 588 and 598 have winglets?

Livery update;

"Final phase of new livery makeovers starts Aug. 27

With the busy summer season winding down, United is resuming it's paint lines starting Aug. 27 and plans to rebrand the entire fleet by next spring. United has a total of eight “tulip” Boeing 747s and 12 tulip 767s to rebrand before all 700 mainline planes will be in the new livery except for a few that feature the Star Alliance or “retro” specialty paint jobs.

United has completed the narrowbody fleets at the end of last year. The larger international aircraft take longer to complete because of their sheer airframe size, the high cost of removing them from service and because, in many cases, United deferred the branding work until the aircraft were due for longer maintenance visits.

When the branding is complete, United will still manage an active ongoing paint program. Like any other part of the structure, paint is a vital component of the aircraft and requires regular maintenance to ensure top performance as well as aesthetic appeal.

In addition, United has have repainted 82 percent of the planes used by United's regional airline partners on United Express flights."

It takes time for a STC to be achieved and the long lead times for sourcing onboard systems such as IFE or power make this process much more complicated than installing a new microwave in your kitchen.

Copied from FlightGlobal:
United Airlines confirms it has installed the equipment for ViaSat's satellite-based Ka-band service on a Boeing 737 aircraft in its fleet and plans to launch the service in the fourth quarter, says the carrier.

The Chicago-based Star Alliance carrier says it is undergoing the US Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) certification process for the equipment, which includes a Ka-band antenna and accompanying radome installation. It is unclear whether the launch later this year will be a full-scale commercial roll-out or the testing that airlines typically carry out after new connectivity installations.

Thanks for noticing that. I believe previous Star units were total repaints as they rebranded the name area to globe from tulip.

Quoting CALPSAFltSkeds (Reply 45):
Does this mean that N598UA had winglets installed in MIA, N588UA had them installed in GSO and N568UA is having them installed in MCN? You'd think UA would pick one station to do the winglet installs instead of installing three sets at three different maintenance facilities. Can someone confirm if 588 and 598 have winglets?

They do and they did. Each aircraft was down for 2 months, winglet kits just part of mod

Maybe it'll get paint after maintenance is finished? Either way, these two statements don't seem at odds.

Also speculating that the following OO aircraft are getting or have new paint:
CR2 N593ML, offline since 8/7
CR7 N738SK, trail ends in ORD last night, and KROW shows 2x CR7 arrivals this morning.

CR7, N787SK, trail ends in DEN 8/26

I'm likely wrong on some of these...so hoping that someone can confirm.

Can anyone tell us the difference in WiFi and streaming free content by WiFi? How will the free vs. paid internet access be handled?

I can.

The streaming content is on a server that is on the airplane - not out over the Internet. If you don't pay for it, you simply won't get to access anything but the inflight entertainment portal. Everything else will redirect you to a payment portal.

Nice. That will leave 465-478 on the sCO side. Since an STC will be needed, then 445-455 should be cleared for E+ (they have DTV, but no E+ now).

Is anyone aware of the contract details UA has with LiveTV? I wonder if once the sCO 737NGs are done, if there is any further obligation to continue installations vs. moving towards the streaming solution being rolled out on the domestic 777s and Airbus fleet.

It looks like they are done with the First/Business interior upgrades and I would imagine they would have done coach at the same time if that was their plan; but maybe they are planning on making the change down the road?

As part of IPTE UA replaced all of the Y class seats on the sUA 777s (3*3*3) so probably not anytime soon. The 9 Hawaii/Island birds will remain 2*5*2.

Has there been any talk about updating seating in Y on 777s? I have read that AA and ANZ are planning on going to 10 abreast in Y and I wonder if UA will do the same

I hope not. Going from 9 abreast to 10 would definitely NOT be an update/upgrade.



A good landing is one you can walk away from. A great landing is when you can re-use the aircraft.

You and I both.

I see other airlines doing it so it made me wonder. Also, as 787s and A330 HGW enter the market the competition will have a lower variable cost basis relative to 9 abreast 777s. Some airlines seem to be 'correcting' that. 10 abreast would change the dynamics and if 10 abreast has become standard on the 77W (most of them are now delivered that way) then why would the 772/E be any different being the same width?

I just wonder what will happen when the 787s become more available what will be the realm of the 77E? It won't have a range advantage nor a seating advantage but if they make that change the economics change and it gets interesting. I hope it doesn't happen but I am surprised it has't yet.

Personally I am surprised it hasn't changed yet.

Personally, considering the age of UA's 772 fleet and the fact that the IPTE upgrades were just now finished, I would be surprised if they are reconfigured again while in service with United.

Many of the airlines going to 10 abreast are taking delivery of new 777s, while UA will likely start phasing them out near the end of the decade.

I agree with others who say that 10 abreast is not an upgrade.

But I think your post implies something that simply isn't totally true. Although UA will start phasing out the old 777's in the fleet (non ER) later on in this decade UA will still have many 777's left in the fleet well into the next decade. So although 10 abreast may not happen on UA 777's within the next 5-7 years (or who knows it could happen if UA feels like the ends justify the means) some of the younger 777's in UA fleet will be around for quite a few years and probably will receive another retrofit at which time they will go 10 abreast. UA seems to like to keep their widebody aircraft for at least 20 years before retiring them (the exception was the sCO 762). So I think you need to be a little more specific the older 777's won't see 10 abreast but the younger 777's more than likely they will go to 10 abreast before UA retires because those younger 777's still have so much life left in them and lastly the current widebody order UA has on the books does not even begin to cover all the 777's in UA fleet. So unless you have insider knowledge of another widebody order that UA intends to place I think it a safe bet to say the 777's will be in UA fleet well into the next decade if not longer.

I agree, there will definitely be at least some 772ERs flying for UA past 2020, and until 2025 I'd imagine. But the majority of the 772 fleet was delivered prior to 2000, meaning the youngest examples would be 18-20 years old at the end of the decade.

I guess I question whether it would be worth it to convert a subfleet of 777s to 10-abreast while they are on a replacement cycle (I highly doubt replacements will not have been identified by then, and I'd argue that the dozens of options UA holds on 787s and A350s has already answered this question).

I know what this is, the seat configuration isn't changing, apparently the older CRJ-700's don't have a floor support that the new aircraft have which help with something to do with the seating. This is the start of those modifications to bring the older CRJ-700's up to the NextGen standard with the flooring.

We have been doing an FCD on the whole 757 fleet that put the interior refresh on hold. Not sure if I can mention what the inspection is about so I won't. All I can say is no defects have been found on our fleet. That includes sUA and sCO 757's.

That makes a lot of sense. In fact thats why I dropped the thought a week ago when I proposed it. I don't see the same cabin being redone twice. Sorry if I am dragging down this thread as I am late to this topic but did 100% of the 777s get the upgrades or just the older UA frames?

Quoting jayunited (Reply 88):
So although 10 abreast may not happen on UA 777's within the next 5-7 years (or who knows it could happen if UA feels like the ends justify the means) some of the younger 777's in UA fleet will be around for quite a few years and probably will receive another retrofit at which time they will go 10 abreast.

UA seems to be keeping their 767s beyond 20 years and they have about 28 777s received after 2000. Clearly a decent amount of them will be in the fleet beyond 2000.

Don't airlines usually replace cabins about 10 years before they are ready to get rid of them? Is that a rough rule of thumb?

I just can't see a retrofit that doesn't include 10 abreast. Even LX is going to 10 abreast in their 777s and the new LH order for the 779x (4" wider) will undoubtedly be there as well. Its the norm whether we like it or not and it might give UA a bit of a lift if they can fill the seats and if they have enough legs built in to handle the extra weight.

I'm just going on record now and making my prediction. When the A350 comes, after United feels it has both replaced the 747 and adequately grown international flying to their liking, it will probably continue to replace older 777's (along with the 789). Those older ones I imagine are the HI/GUM aircraft they are reconfiguring right now, or at least the former domestic 777's have the highest cycles and are not ER's. Then the next oldest 777's will go to HI to replace those so the lieflat beds will go to HI with them. I figure they will replace F with 2 more rows of J, for 32 maybe 36 lie flat J seats. United will be able to say they have Flat bed seats on all transoceanic flights, and they may take that opportunity to put 10 across Y seats at that time. I don't think it will be fleetwide, unless they update the 777's with their next future J product.

You could be right, but that's a few years away and lots can happen. You would think if 10 across was coming, it would happen sooner than later to make the investment worthwhile. Once Hawaiian 772s are converted, everything is painted and maybe some more 787s come on the property, there could be time to do mods.

Actually, 772A 768-781UA are the oldest units 1995/6 and most are IPTE (768/772/779UA to go Hawaiian). Other 6 Hawaiian units 210-215UA are 2000 build, younger than 1997/98 ERs 782-799UA. Of course the HI/domestic birds may have more cycles,

I agree, but I think UA's goal with the Pacific 777's is as little investment as possible, and since they have all the 9 across (2 5 2) seats that have just been pulled out of their international fleet, they can do the retrofits for just the cost of labor. If they hadn't had domestic F seats in them, I would have guessed they wouldn't invest any money at all. Right now they are doing the only thing they can get away with in the midterm to justify those planes on NRT routes, and long flights from HNL-EWR/ORD/IAD

I just can't see a retrofit that doesn't include 10 abreast.

I don't see United going for the 10-across option. They're branding themselves as the airline for comfort and service in addition to unmatched route options. If they decide to jump off the 'pack 'em in like sardines' cliff like some other carriers, they're no better than the competition. If they stayed with 9 across, they could position themselves above the rest much like their E-plus cabin.

North America to Europe is relatively short-haul compared to UA Pacific/Middle East routes. You can put up with a lot on a 7-8 hour flight that would make a 13-14 hour TPAC route very uncomfortable.



A good landing is one you can walk away from. A great landing is when you can re-use the aircraft.

I am not sure how this would work for service carts and aisles, but we could see a 9 across for E+ section and 10 across for Y-. That would create a real E+ section for selling.

All in all, I do not think UA will go 10 across for much of the current fleet (includes 787 and 777 fleets). I would say that all bets are off when we start seeing the A350 arrive.

Wow, hadn't noticed that all to be converted are done are completed or in mod (with 505 and 587 sked to enter mod 9/26).

Announced in Aug 2012, the program was stated as having 13 units completed in Summer 2013 - Pretty close as units 13, 14 and 15 are in or entering mod. Would expect units 11 and 12 to exit any day now.

Right now, this is the info assuming those two entries into mod tomorrow and one exit.

New ps Configuration:
752 (15/15=100%)-Completed: 510,512,518,588-590,595-598 In Mod: 502/IAH,505/MIA,546/MCN,568/MCN,587/MCN

I believe the 767-300 2 class configuration was close to on schedule. Better to have these done than to have them delayed for paint, which is still not complete. While paint was to restart, I think 763ER N674UA in IAH with gear issues maybe has delayed the program.

For what its worth, the ITPE program did encompass ,more units.

Today B737-900ER Tail #804 is going into service today flying ORD - SEA - IAH. Looks like it will be flown by sCO pilots and sUA FAs. What's interesting is the flight #s are typical sCO ones. ORD - SEA Flight 1675 and SEA - IAH flight 1581.

Would this not be then the first cross-crew flight of the merged United?
If so, might we also expect to see sCO FAs working the 319/320s on sUA flight numbers too?

Any word on how soon the sUA cockpit crews will be ready to take these new 739ERs into the Friendly Skies?

Yes this is the first mixed crew flight for UA (sCO pilots, sUA FAs), however for the FA side sCO FAs won't be able to to work the 739ERs in the 8xx tail # range, and sUA FAs won't be able to work the 739/739ERs in the 4xx range. And no we on the sCO side can't work the 319/320s yet.

Not sure when the sUA pilots will be flying their 739ERs but I'd assume rather soon.

Thanks for the information. I had assumed this to be the case since the pilots have a joint contract and the FAs are still under separate contacts. I had wondered though since talking with the FAs onboard, each side had said that aircraft type training had already begun on each others aircraft so it's good to know the FAs are getting ready. Now if UA management can just get the labor issues resolved so real merger progress can be achieved.

Have to correct myself, this aircraft has now come out of MX and has 70 seats, 6 First, and 64 Coach. I can't remember the break down of the Economy Plus vs regular Economy seating.

The new configuration is 6 F, 16 Y+, 50 Y, which makes a lot more sense than the 7 rows of Y+ in the past. This will make my parents happier, because they never got a seat assignment before the day of the flight on this plane. With fewer Y+, there should be enough open more often.

Saw some 787's on the ramp, one with UA blue tail, but no globe.

Flew on N468UA to day - first 320 with slimline seats. Disappointed that the aircraft had WiFi signal (I din't pay, but it connected), but no WiFi symbol on aircraft and FA did not announce WiFi. No materials in seatback pocket either.

In the last UA Fleet Update thread, around the beginning of August, there was a discussion about the legend "Operated by CAL A014A" that appears below the registry number on sCO aircraft. Normally it is in UAL Blue paint.

Following are the relevant quotes from Part 16:



Quoting Schweigend (Reply 214):

I saw that legend painted on a UA bird at IAH the other day -- but it was in white instead of blue paint!
Quoting OldTTAguy (Reply 215):

Schweigend, did you get a a/c number or at least type? I spend hours at IAH observing and photgraphing and I have yet to see anything other than the standard blue lettering.
Quoting Schweigend (Reply 224):

I wish I had noted the tail number (it was a busy day). But it was last week I saw that a/c -- I believe it was a 738 at E-10 whose tail I spied while driving through the breezeway that comes from E-1. Quite strange, but true. I think it must have been a slip up by a vendor or something.

Since when I posted, I have been keeping my eyes peeled for this anomalous bird -- it was not a mirage.
Quoting CALTECH (Reply 234):

Will try to track it down, but have a whole 737-824 fleet to go through. IIRC, there was a sUAL 757 that had a gray painted belly rather than a bare metal finish in MCO.



UPDATE

I saw her this afternoon, 6 Oct, at 3:15pm!

She is N35260, and was sitting at IAH gate E-23, preparing to fly to YYC as UA1084.

On the left side, the legend is all white; on the right side it is mostly white with some remains of blue, as if the blue paint had eroded or peeled away.

I realize this is a silly little thing, but I wanted to post it anyway.

Also, regarding the gray-bellied 757 that CALTECH mentions above, I've seen those too, on both Pratt and RR 757s. It seems to be a special Teflon paint that repels oil/Skydrol better than bare metal. I do not know why only a few 757s sport this, rather than the entire fleet.

Cheers!

Yes all of the sUA domestic 752s except the sCO 752s, sCO 753s, and sUA PS 757s will be gone by 2015. I don't have an exact number of how many sUA 752s are gone from the fleet though.

Well if you happen to know how many are in the fleet currently you can subtract that from 97 (as that is how many were in the fleet at the time of the merger) and figure out how many have left and how many will be leaving.

I wrote so that said poster would know exactly which 757s are leaving and which are staying.

Staying - All sCO 757s and the reconfigured sUA PS 757s
Leaving - All domestic sUA 757s.

United has finally made their intentions known when it comes to inflight entertainment they posted this information up today on flying together the employee only website. I had to copy and paste it because non UA employees would not have access to the link. Any UA employee can confirm the below information is true and directly from UA on flying together so please know these are not my words but words taken directly from UA.

By 2015, we plan to provide Wi-Fi connectivity on all mainline aircraft, plus at least one other user-friendly entertainment option. While connectivity will be our core product, the additional options include DIRECTV, personal on-demand entertainment or wireless entertainment. Wireless entertainment will offer an extensive catalog of movies and TV shows. With more than 300 titles to choose from, our customers can enjoy award-winning shows like "House of Cards" on their personal devices such as laptops, smartphones or tablets.

Domestic aircraft will feature Wi-Fi plus either DIRECTV or wireless entertainment. International and p.s. (premium service) aircraft will offer Wi-Fi plus personal on-demand entertainment. See the chart for a list of options by aircraft type, as well as exceptions for particular aircraft or cabins.

"Installation of new equipment and reconfiguration of cabins on several of our fleet types take time, but, through 2014, we'll be installing Wi-Fi on more than 30 aircraft per month on average, which is very aggressive considering the complexity and length of each installation," said Passenger Systems Managing Director Tarek Abdel-Halim.

All Boeing 737-900ERs that are flying without an entertainment system are awaiting the necessary certifications to install DIRECTV or Wi-Fi and wireless entertainment. We resumed DIRECTV installations on 737-900ERs last month and will complete them by the end of the year. We will install Wi-Fi and wireless entertainment on remaining 737-900ERs starting in early 2014 and will complete them by the end of the year. "The shift in customer demands drives our wireless entertainment program," Tarek said. "More customers are bringing personal devices with them than ever before, so providing access to a vast library of content and power outlets are our priorities."

In 2014, we'll begin adding power outlets to Airbus A319, A320, Boeing 747 and domestic Boeing 777 aircraft. To learn what inflight entertainment a particular aircraft offers, you can check the flight status of any flight on united.com or within the mobile app. Both display inflight amenities such as food, beverages, entertainment offerings and in-seat power.

So if i'm understanding this correctly we will also continue the installations of DirecTV on the 737-900ERs next year as well? Or is it just going to be the wireless entertainment?

I got it now DirecTV contract isn't expiring, just no new aircraft being delivered next year will get the DirecTV systems. So basically 739ERs being delivered next year will have that wireless content stuff.

That would make sense. The 739ERs that should have started with DTV installs at INT do not show DTV on UA.com. 3457 exited 9/28 and 3458 exited 10/5, 3461 is in INT now. The article states they are waiting for certification. Could it be they are installed, but not turned on until certified?

Could we assume when the first 900ER is certified, there would be a common type Sky/DTV/E+ so the the 11 with Sky/DTV and non-E+ can receive E+ mod.

Will the midlav 738s will get DTV, whenever they get the mod as well as the TZ build 753s? Maybe Streaming WiFi might be better for aircraft heavily used on Hawaii.

I don't understand why E+ has not been installed on the nine 738s non-Sky with SFP. Four Sky/SFP units might need an STC to install E+.

30 WiFi installs per month is a lot - with about 600 mainline aircraft without current WiFi it would take 20 months.
