I though DC9-30s were repainted in DL colors The DC9-50s flew long enough for some repainting. The 30s and 40s were parked too quickly I think. However, airfleets.net doesn't include the DC9s under Delta or Northwest. https://www.usatoday.com/story/todayinthesky/2014/01/07/delta-final-dc-9-flight/4...Jump to post
Hopefully N777UA winds up in a museum, and not in the ugly monstrosity paint job it’s currently stuck with.Jump to post
I’m guessing this video was shot in the late 70’s to early 80’s, were SOP’s really enforcred back then or did they even exist? If I’m not mistaken UA’s fuel policy was first introduced in 1978, it may seem like a long time ago but it really isn’t, or at least I see it that way. I don't think so, fi...Jump to post

That would be a lot of premium capacity for EWR-SFO/LAX but I think the configuration wouldn't be dense enough for any transatlantic purposes either.
The hatred is due to the fact that many people wanted to see United go on as it had and CO disappear. They did not like the idea of two carriers merging and blending. So you have some UAL people believing UAL was taken over by Continental and some Continental people believing that Continental was t...Jump to post
I've never understood the hate towards the post merger livery. Brilliant and elegant colour combos of blue, gold, white and grey makes for a fantastic application across the branding. While by most accounts the service doesn't yet match the brand, to me at least UA comes across as a serious busines...Jump to post
Like taking spoiled meat and reheating it in the microwave. There you have the CO turd ball. The herpes of liveries.Jump to post
God it looks horrible. The worst livery in the world for nearly 30 years just got even crappier.Jump to post
I hope some billionaire tycoon rescues the VIP ones so they can continue to fly. The last MD-11s that exist in PAX form.Jump to post

The post-merger orders didn’t come with DirecTV.
They had 42 A319/320s on order before the merger
Those orders were cancelled.

Noooh, United ordered B737-900's before the merger. Not as many as we Had though. Are you sure of that? There are no 737-922. They all came in with CO's 24 code. Those were changed to -924 post merger at delivery to coincide with the sCO fleet. However, they were (and still are) staffed by sUA FA's...Jump to post
UA had some sort of relationship with AQ at the time and owned a tiny part of the company IIRC.Jump to post

I've only seen 717s ending with AT (so I presume from Air Tran). Would the ex-TWA end TW? I'll keep a look out for them if so.
I've seen a couple N###DL 717s. Most likely the over seas acquisitions???
I flew on AA in July 2005 and was on an exTW 757 SMF-DFW. I remember it having drop down TVs and only learning years later the only AA 757s that had that were the TWA ones.
AA is also operating ex TW MD-80s, some of the last on the line.
And doesn’t ABX air or DHL have a few 767-231Fs?
There was AQ, TZ, Skybus and Champion air all folding that last week of March/first week of April 2008.Jump to post
I think the Patriots were smart enough to do the numbers and got two planes because the costs and flexibility was justified.Jump to post
I would be shocked if UA wanted to update their livery, They seem to not really care about their image. The current CO-UA livery looks like it was thrown together last minute because someone in the marketing department procrastinated until the last minute.They also never feel rushed to do anything....Jump to post
I’m surprised nobody resurrected it.Jump to post

I wonder who will take the MD-11s they bought new that are currently stored. Well maintained and low hours/cycles. Western Global?

Is it me or has United always been clawing through PR and customer service disasters? Even in the 90's weren't they known for having busted interiors and generally awful operations compared with the other legacy players. Am I way off base? If not, what's the deal with that? How can a company cultur...Jump to post
I hope so! I love the 763 (I don’t care how old the design is). For me it’s the Goldie Locks “just right” airplane. And with new interiors I’d defy any average person to guess her age! The three HA ones were built in 2002-03 - on par with their newest original A320's, and in the middle of the 772ER...Jump to post
There are several of the of exCO 757s that are showing lots of wear and tear in the cabin and are showing their age. The seats in the ps 757s are newer and the IFE has newer software or operating system since they tend to work slightly better/faster.Jump to post
given the age of the plane, I'm wondering is this engine still in production? If not would they replace both engines with new versions? UA has spare engines but yes, Pratt is still making the PW4000s. PW is currently scrapping a number of Vietnam 77Es for their engines. That doesn’t mean they aren’...Jump to post
