Re: UA IAH-SYD starts 18 January 2018

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...

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.
