Missed one for Paint: OO EMB-120 N292SW is in ROW as of 3/09. Appears that OO has no Gray aircraft left.

Quoting CALPSAFltSkeds (Reply 2):
EMB-120 SkyWest (14/44) 221SW, 229SW, 233SW-235SW, 237SW, 290SW-291SW [2], 294SW-295SW, 562SW-563SW [2], 568SW, 658CT - [16 in UA blue paint, 2 in gray paint and 11 extra in SkyWest House Paint].

N658CT was a temporary tail number for N298SW.

Also there has been some changes in the EMB-120 fleet because of aircraft going off lease but lines of flying staying the same. OO currently has 46 EMB-120's active but appears that maybe N564SW and N578SW might be getting ready for lease return or are in heavy maintenance.

However, the latest photos I can find of this aircraft are from last spring, when it was in US Airways Express markings. I would presume it was repainted in the meantime, but does it carry United Express or SkyWest colors?

"United recently completed Wi-Fi installation on it's 200th aircraft. This is an important milestone given the complexity of satellite Wi-Fi – the video shown here is a time lapse video showing the significant amount of work that goes into each installation.
United's Airbus A320s are complete, and the first Wi-Fi-equipped international Boeing 777 began flying in early March. United plans to have Wi-Fi installed on more than half the fleet by this summer, with installations largely complete by the end of 2014 and the following near-term milestones:
· United will complete Boeing 747s in May
· United will complete A319s in June (only one aircraft remains without Wi-Fi)
· In the next several months United will complete more than 50 737 installations, including all 737-900ERs that currently do not have Wi-Fi or entertainment.
United is currently sending more than 25,000 emails per day to customers notifying them if United plans to make Wi-Fi available on their scheduled flights.
To determine if a flight offers Wi-Fi, check Inflight Amenities under Flight Status for a specific flight on united.com or on United's mobile app, look for the Wi-Fi logo on the side of the plane or listen for an announcement by the flight crew.

Question for everyone on this thread:

Is the work being done on the aircraft only cosmetics (paint/interior/wifi) or are they also doing major work on the airframe and engines? I am just amazed at the fact that they can have planes out of service for such a long period of time, it is very expensive to have a $200 MMM 777 idle for such a long time. It would make more sense to me if the planes also gets a major overhaul so as to come back on line better than new from an airworthiness perspective.

Acft # 818 & # 819 have MX ETRs of 25 Mar 14 .

" It's been a busy week for aircraft deliveries at United.

United added three planes to it's fleet - a Boeing 737-900ER and a Boeing 787-8 on Thursday and one 737-900ER on Friday. The 737s carry the aircraft numbers 818 and 819. The 787, which is United's 10th, is number 910, a CHS bird.

The 787 is the second of six United will receive this year. United is the North American launch customer of the lightweight, fuel-efficient widebody. And United plans to take delivery of it's first 787-9, which is a stretched version of the -8, in July, acft # 950.

So far this year, United has received nine 737s out of an expected 29. The 737s replace older, less-efficient domestic 757-200s.

Maintaining a modern, fuel-efficient fleet is key to United's plan to trim $1 billion from it's fuel costs annually by 2017. United plans to take delivery of one more 737-900ER and United's first Embraer E175 this month."

Pardon if this was covered previous - we are no thread 19....

On the -800 the third coach lav is being pulled favor of economy plus?
Seems like they forgot what they figured out in the Continental days - the third lav is useful on the longer Central and South American legs - not to mention the cross country ones.
Wow. Disappointing.

Only 18 738s have the third lav. It was to be the new standard on all 738s before 9/11 happened. Now that the aircraft are coming due for D checks it was decided to end the sub-fleet.

Is 277 still the only 737-800 with Split Scimitar Winglets? Any details as to how quickly the existing 737-800 aircraft will be retrofitted?
Thanks!

Aircraft # 812 new United bird came through. Has the new SlimLine seats installed. Had a chance to sit in them. Very, very comfortable. Felt like a lot of cushion. Leather too. Nice looking interior. Co-pilot said much better than the Recaro seats in the Airbus. Like the new look. Has anyone flown Transcon on the new SlimLine seats ?

Let's hope! That way, I can just plan my bookings around the 737 fleet. Eventually. When they get rid of the Koito park benches.
If Recaro is making the seats for the 'Bus refit, who is making the seats for the new 737s? If they're all Recaros, you'd expect a similar level of comfort/discomfort.

SkyWest typically uses the full tail number, sometimes the serial number, doesn't have a different fleet number like others. The second aircraft is going to be N105SY to make the number scheme even better!! Probably N101SY, N102SY and N104SY were already taken but most of the rest of the N1xxSY range is open.

The SlimLine seats are made by BE Aerospace, supposedly based on their Pinnacle line. Recaro is a company based in Stuttgart Germany, BE Aerospace is a company based in Florida USA. I've heard good and bad about the Airbus seats, I'll check one out tomorrow. The SlimLines are good looking and comfortable.

I've flown on the new Airbus seats several times. They are far less comfortable than the seats they are replacing. The only thing they're better than is the park benches in the ex CO 737s.

Acft # 259 is in MCO getting it's Scimitars. More wing reinforcement is being put in.

Pictures of the BE Aerospace SlimLine seats. The darker headrests are Economy+, the lighter blue are Regular Economy. It can be seen that E+ goes for the first 4 1/2 rows, then there is 2 1/2 rows of regular economy, then the 2 more rows of E+ at the overwing emergency exits. Odd, bean counting solution. Those cloth checkerboard seats are on the way out now. Acft # 812.

It looks like 3 aircraft are needed to fly CLE operations as there seems to be banks of 3 flights out of/in to CLE. They all show A/C #815, mus be with the N numbers starting with 815. Interestingly enough, pulling the N815xx numbers from above show no results on FlightAware.

The new interiors look great. I noticed those first class seats do not have the look of the economy seats and lack the horizontal stitching that widens as it gets lower on the seat back and the United-branded tag. The CRJ-700 first class seats, shown in the press release when the new look was announced, look just like the economy seats only wider.

Does anybody know why the mainline first class seats do not more closely look like the economy seats as on the CRJs?

Slimlines on the 320 fleet have been about 6-7 per month the last couple months. At that rate it would take about 5 months to complete. There could be a slowing during summer. FYI: 319s have only received 9 of 55 slimlines, a much slow rate than 320s.
There have been a lot of 739s going trough INT and assume WiFi is being turned sometime on after the visits. Don't know when the 738s will have WiFi added or turned on.

The official fleet plan shows 37 752 retirements this year (I've only for sure noted one, but it looks like N515/533/540UA are in SFO and will not fly revenue again. Others sold to FedEx are still flying.
The fleet plan shows 30 added 739s this year - 10 have already been delivered. By quarter, fleet plan says 8, 9, 6 & 7 for a total of 30.
The fleet plan shows 4 788s this year (2 already delivered) and 2 789 aircraft for a total of 6 new widebodies. One 763 is slated for retirement in the 4th quarter 2014.

If the fleet plan is correct, UA will be down 7 narrowbodies and up 5 widebodies by the end of 2014 vs. the beginning of the year.

Hopefully 2015 will be better for fleet growth numbers. I haven't been able to find a delivery schedule for the E175s but between the UA and OO order, there should be 70 frames coming on the property before the end of next year. That's as good as any mainline narrowbody IMHO

I'm still holding out for an E190 (or equivalent) order by UA once the F/A contracts get sorted out.

Well, from a branding and customer experience perspective, it would make sense to have some semblance of a cohesive interior design... but common sense is in short supply at UAL these days.

Maybe they changed the covers to match the blue BE Aerospace SlimLines. We'll see how it pans out or look for more info. So Blue won over the Gray yet again.

Can confirm this is the case. I am presently on board N473UA with Recaro slimes and blue leather seat covers in Y.

No reason they can't install scimitars on 276 while it's there.. That would be the perfect time

Not enough manpower, it is extra work afterall. There is manpower enough for the 'C' Check and not much else. The sheetmetal work in the wings for the Scimitars is extensive. Think the Scimitar Mod has a schedule of approx 10-14 days with the reinforcement of the wings.

So the Blue is in, good it will all look the same after a while. Good to see it all trying to go for one look across the fleet. Liked it when Continental was almost down to one seat type. We have so many different types of seats again after the merger and the seats being changed on new deliveries. The Blue is a good color.

Only 18 738s have the third lav. It was to be the new standard on all 738s before 9/11 happened. Now that the aircraft are coming due for D checks it was decided to end the sub-fleet.

Actually, they are going into Special Holds and getting the Mid Cabin LAV removed, Aft Cabin Reconfig, LiveTV and SlimLine. Should start 2Q14.

Guam 737-800s should start getting SlimLines late this year, around December.

Should have about 65 aircraft with the SlimLines installed as of now.

747s should be getting ISP soon.

Wi-Fi Systems installs the Panasonic, the LiveTV, or the GOGO Wi-Fi systems, scheduled on Special Holds and Base Checks. Completion 2015, end of 2014 should see approx 500 aircraft with WiFi.

Question for everyone on this thread:

Is the work being done on the aircraft only cosmetics (paint/interior/wifi) or are they also doing major work on the airframe and engines? I am just amazed at the fact that they can have planes out of service for such a long period of time, it is very expensive to have a $200 MMM 777 idle for such a long time. It would make more sense to me if the planes also gets a major overhaul so as to come back on line better than new from an airworthiness perspective.

*************************************************************************************************************************************************
the WiFI is an STC that requires a supplimental type Certificate, once installed it requires a test flight and removal from our D85 ops specs during the testing. where the aircraft is removed from airworthiness , it is NOT a cosmetic change. The system interfaces with a LOT of equipment including Adirus to gain position sensing for interface with the sattelites also testing and some other non WiFi compatible equipment has to be modified or replaced.
The avionics suite is nearly all recertified to operate with wi-fi, FYI

If someone can confirm the electric outlets on all 744s I will change the Fleet Website. However, something is not correct on United.com as I checked many 744s flights and they do not show in (flight status amenities) power in Y except in N197UA (as posted on the Fleet Websitre). Either the individual aircraft are not updated or they released the updated seating chart prior to conversion completion.

They'll eventually need to replace the 2-class 763, so maybe a small top off of 788s isn't completely unrealistic. Will probably depend on how close the costs of the -9 end up being.

Yeah, but 950 is easier than 930 to tell the difference between the types. 980 for the 787-10s ? I wish they would have gone with new fleet numbers that are now available.

Hey guys, I'm on UA284 PHX-EWR. A319 N4023 with grey leather slimline seats, last row window. I'm 6'1", -even with the seat in front of me reclined, my knees aren't touching the seat back. After all of the complaints I read about the new seats, I must say I'm pleasantly surprised. The seat is fairly comfortable as well

I've done that same position with those same seats on 320s doing both IAH-BWI aand SFO-SNA. On one flight I had a jolly 300-pounder in the E seat (I was F) and on the other I had two giant Korean basketball players in E and F while I had D.

In the words of my friend -- Cajun writer / story-teller Justin Wilson, "I GAH-ROHN-TEE you that it was cramped" on the 320 model.

Guess that's how 'they' wanted it. Think that Boeing might have offered to paint 8,000th 737 in bigger characters on the fuselage, somewhere. Maybe they are just waiting for the 10,000th milestone.

I believe they will have power ports, streaming IFE, and WiFi. I think they are currently equipped with the latter two, and the power ports will be installed soon. It will require you to bring your own device for inflight entertainment -- there are no overhead LCDs.

I do think that UA would be wise to start renting tablets on aircraft equipped with streaming IFE and WiFi, because the one device could provide access to movies, music, games, email, internet, etc., and generate some pretty solid revenue, particularly on longer flights like transcons and redeyes. However, UA's current management seems somewhat incapable of making wise decisions at the moment, so it may take them a while to realize the revenue potential that WiFi and IFE stream with device rental can provide.

Let's hope they address this soon. There are 3 units in SFO/HKG at this moment, hopefully getting at least power. Surprising thing is that the old business seats now in the Hawaiian 772s had power previously - couldn't just hook up the power to those reused seats?

My thoughts exactly... It's worse on the 744's. At least they took them off of Australia service, or what that's worth... Though SFO-Asia, FRA, and some LHR is sadly still stuck with them.

I really do hope that they manage to get Economy power on all of the 744 fleet before too long, a much needed addition, especially if they are banking on the Wifi and streaming IFE (Both of which I'd think would drain a device's batteries before a longhaul flight is likely to be even halfway or a quarter through.) If they don't bother getting power on them... well... It seems like the A350 can't push the 744's out of service quickly nor soon enough.

I wish I could coin the term 'Ghetto Queen' for the 744's without power.

For those that have dealt with the streaming entertainment though... Is it on demand, or just looping?

Removing the overhead monitors entirely seems like a mistake to me. I understand it for the A319/320 fleet, but the Hawaii config 772s are operating pretty long sectors. I realize that WiFi Stream is the next step in IFE offerings, but not everyone will have a PED to utilize the service. If they rented them out, it would be a different story, but going "dark" for potentially half the passengers on the aircraft feels like a significant step backwards.

They will have power ports relatively soon from what I understand. I recall reading something on FlyerTalk from UA's company rep that they plan to equip them with power ports around six months after they enter service. I'm not really sure why they couldn't just install them while they were in mods -- maybe they needed a new certification?

Agreed. I'll pretty much only fly a 744 if I'm up front. I've managed to successfully avoid Economy by booking another aircraft, airline, or upgrading for at least 10 years now!

They are definitely getting power soon -- I believe one has already had power ports installed in Y. I'm guessing it just needs its certification and then it'll be installed across the fleet. Since they installed WiFi and WiFi Stream pretty quickly and because the 744s are in such desperate need, I'm guessing it'll happen fairly quickly. They may be making some poor decisions as a company, but they have at least publicly acknowledged that the Y product on the 744 needed some updating if it's staying in the fleet for another 3-5 years, potentially a little longer. I think they should have installed the 772 Y seats and AVOD a couple of years ago, but what do I know...

I haven't used the WiFi Stream yet, but my understanding is that it's an on-demand service with movies and TV shows (maybe music too?). It sounds like it basically functions like the installed AVOD in the rest of the fleet, with play/pause/rewind/fast forward. If it works the way it's supposed to work, it should be a pretty good system. Since it's on your own device, it may even function better than some personal AVOD systems...those freeze and crash sometimes and the touch screens are generally pretty poor.

It doesn't seem to be live on many aircraft yet so we don't have a lot to go on in terms of how it is supposed to function and how it actually functions

I'm stuck on another "dark" 739 on PHL-SFO tomorrow....I can't wait.

As I understand it? the Seat power and the Wi Fi integration are not compatible at this time, Seat power was previously installed on some airplanes but was deactivated because it was unreliable.
Engineering is working on it because it's needed but I haven't heard whether it's operational as of yet,
When I go back to work in a couple of days I'll look into it and update you.
I thought since they wee putting the Charging posts in at the terminals that it wasn't considered such a big deal.,

It still seems a bit nutty (but somehow not too surprising) to me that United seemed to jump ahead and show the 744's as having power in economy for the seatmap on their site, while at this moment, as far as I know, they only have one done at the time of this posting...

This page shows "Yes" across the board for it; http://www.united.com/web/en-US/cont...inflight/aircraft/747/default.aspx Even though we know, that not all or even most have power yet, from the fleet site.

Makes me feel bad for someone who sees that page and gets their hopes up, then when their device goes dead on the plane, they can't find the power port that was shown on the 744 flight they booked. Really hope they get busy with the power integration... Kind of a shame they couldn't do at the same time as their wifi installation, but no doubt there is a technical reason for that, I'm simply curious what it is... Wi-fi's easier to get certified?

Yeah, funny how that works.. I'm not even sure if the power ports are active on the one aircraft they've been installed on, which makes me think it's being certified. So technically none of the fleet has power. Even if only a handful of people check the website, see there's power, then find no power, that's still a handful of people every flight who will be pissed off enough to potentially abandon UA as an airline of choice in the future. People don't like being misled, even if it is a fairly minor issue like this.

I think they just came along on different timelines. WiFi began installation on the 744 what -- a year ago? That came along well before the announcement for WiFi stream and the decision to finally install power ports. Although I feel they could have and should have moved faster on this. I think they should have gotten power prior to the 772s.

-IAH-HNL is currenlty flown with AVOD 767-400s. ORD-HNL (now) and (soon) DEN-HNL appear to be 3-class sUA 777s with AVOD as well.

It appears that this summer any flight to/from HNL over 6 hours will scheduled with AVOD equipped aircraft. IAH 767 sCO, ORD 777 sUA, DEN 777 sUA, EWR 767 sCO, IAD 767 sCO.

2-class 777s are flying NRT- GUM and GUM-HNL (4 frames) as well as west-coast-HNL 1x lax, 1x sfo. That accounts for 6 of 9 frames. 1 spare for maintenance routing (ex. longer gound than normal in HNL/SFO), 1 in heavy maintenance. Dunno about the last 1 if they could be used for mainland turns or for slack in the routing ??

That's not what I'm seeing for service in June.
ORD-HNL goes 772 Hawaiian on 5/6/14
IAH-HNL goes 772 Hawaiian on 6/5/14
DEN-HNL goes 772 3 class 6/5/14
ORD-OGG is Sat only 772 Hawaiian
LAX-HNL 1 daily 772 Hawaiian (plus several with a mix of 753/739/752)
SFO-HNL looks like 1 772 Hawaiian and 1 772 old domestic most days (some days just one 772, mix of 738/753/753/764 on additional flights)
GUM-NRT 2 RT 772 Hawaiian or 772 old Domestic, only requires one unit (plus 1 738 flight)
HNL-GUM 1 RT 772 Hawaiian or 772 old Domestic, only requires one unit as West Coast-HNL arrival provides HNL-GUM aircraft, then GUM-HNL unit goes to West Coast in evening.

1 - ORD-HNL
2 - IAH-HNL
3 - LAX-HNL (part of this unit allows HNL-GUM to be flown with one aircraft)
4 - SFO-HNL
5 - SFO-HNL (ORD-OGG Sat [positioned with SFO-ORD Friday and ORD-SFO Sunday])
6 - GUM NRT
7 - HNL-GUM
8 - SPARE
9 - MOD completion?

FYI:
EWR-HNL and IAD-HNL with 764 aircraft.

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know what's going to happen with the freed up mainline aircraft that are gonna exist as a result of closing down CLE? Will they be used to accelerate aircraft mods?

CLE didn't have that many mainline departures to begin with. I think as of a few months ago it was only around 30 mainline departures a day? Maybe less? Not only that, most of the mainline flights are sticking around -- only PHX is scheduled to end later this month. Nearly all of the flights being cut are UAX flights, and those aircraft will be reallocated throughout the system. Most of the props will likely go to IAD and/or EWR, some of the 50-seaters will be parked (particularly as more E175s are delivered anyway), and the rest will simply fly from other hubs while maintaining the 15-20 remaining UAX destinations that still remain -- for now. Mainline will continue flying to approx. 15 destinations for the time being, albeit with reduced frequencies. There won't really be all that much mainline flying freed up as a result.

Quoting CALPSAFltSkeds (Reply 108):
If someone can confirm the electric outlets on all 744s I will change the Fleet Website. However, something is not correct on United.com as I checked many 744s flights and they do not show in (flight status amenities) power in Y except in N197UA (as posted on the Fleet Websitre). Either the individual aircraft are not updated or they released the updated seating chart prior to conversion completion.

Just flew two 744s SFO-HKG and NRT-SFO....no power outlets...

Someone had brought up in a older thread that there was a red meatball with white contrails in it. You were right. In this video, at approx. 2:26 - 2:29 one can see # 044 a DC-10-10 with that red and white meatball painted on the tail.

WiFi is being installed. 2-Class Reconfiguration also being accomplished now due to extensive time for other issue.

Lots of aircraft out of service for Mod work. Could be part of the problem with earnings.
