Anyone know why there was an aircraft swap upon arrival SYD? The inbound SFO aircraft operated UA100 back to IAH. EK413 Apart from some domestic inter-hub flying Sydney is currently the only 787 route from IAH. They are therefore going to be using Sydney as a bridge to rotate the aircraft in and ou...Jump to post

N24972 Delivery UA2687 18Jan CHSSEA
Only two more 789s to go. 973 should roll off the FAL any day now and 974 is literally right behind it. 974 is LN 663, first UA 78J LN 731, so it will be awhile on that.
Meanwhile it will be a race to see which is ready next, 15th UA 77W, or first 737Max9.
Per FlightAware F-HPJE appears to have made its first revenue flight CDGJNB AF990 15JanJump to post
Looks like SEA will be doing the post delivery mod on N24972. There is no date or flight number at this time.
What routes have the refitted 767’s been showing up on? Have they made it to Brazil yet? Carnival is just around the corner! IAH-GIG has seen the new configuration a number of times. IAH-LIM/SCL also somewhat frequently. No fixed schedule or markets yet. One is about to depart IAHLIM now. Another i...Jump to post
2) There was an even longer discussion that UA would order new 763's. Is that dead? UA is indeed interested in adding a few 763s to its fleet but those will come in the form of HA's 763s which are due for retirement this year. They are young frames, in good shape and satisfy UA's requirements. That...Jump to post
UA is scheduled for a 789 delivery on the 9th... me thinks this won’t happen.Jump to post
Another thing I am keeping my eyes on has to do with domestic operations. Something that grinds my gears has to do with the use of E145's to markets like IND, CMH, CLE, etc. What Im looking for UA to do is perhaps reduce the frequency and up the equipment. Instead of flying 5X daily on a route like...Jump to post
When are the additional 4 77W’s due for delivery and service? Has there been any confirmation as to what routes they will fly? The first one is LN 1548 and is in the “parts arriving” stage at PAE. The next two are 1550 and 1554. Last one will be late in the year. No idea yet as to where they will p...Jump to post
Unlikely as induction takes seven to ten days and then the first few revenue flights are usually domestic only. It would be great if that were possible though. Seems like it is possible. I was on the 7th 788's 3rd revenue flight ever, NRT-LAX, and while it technically did a domestic flight first, i...Jump to post
I’ve always wondered why the gear couldn’t be dropped manually by gravity. This has been done in other 767 events... AC comes to mind.Jump to post
Ed is demanding either the airport (city of Atlanta), or Georgia power re-imburse them between 25-50 million. If it was a fire though, would the city argue that it was an act of God? If they (City or GP) can prove all current tech and safety systems were properly installed and maintained they could...Jump to post
789: N29971 now scheduled for delivery to UA on 9th January. N24972 set for delivery on 17th Jan. Remaining two frames tentatively set for Feb 2018 deliveries. I guess that either N29971 or N24972 might be the one that flies the inaugural IAH-SYD, New route launched by a brand new plane. Unlikely a...Jump to post
Plus how are any vouchers provided if no power to print them? Everyone needs keep ALL receipts from this should any sort of compensation be offered at a later time however.

UA relationship with Boeing goes back to its mail days. When co came in, they wanted no part of the Airbus in the fleet. They have grown to like it but their preference is for Boeing planes. The likelihood of the 330 ever being in UA colors is less than slim or none. Besides, the reality for those ...Jump to post
KLM621 from AMS to ATL is diverting to ORD. Why not go to DTW where rebooking pax to their final destination should be easier? DTW must be busy as well. They are handling diversions as well.

The question is if airlines would be willing to order a new series of aircraft with engine technology dating back 30 years. On the other side new engines add time to market, costs and weight. And 10-15% better fuel burn over 25 years. A re-engined 767 seems unlikely & would push out new NMA pla...Jump to post
Last delta.com update was at 5:15 and no mention of when power will be restored. I think that there is no quick fix for this and could quite possibly drag on into Monday. Truly unbelievable.
