Yes plane 360 is a go to plane for spare parts, but my friend who’s a manager at Mesa said that UA told them to order 1 to many planes. Plane 360 puts the large RJs over there limit and so they aren’t allowed to fly it yet. Plane 349 is being used to train flight crews in PHX. UA actually have give...Jump to post

Since it’s quite likely UA will order additional 787s as part of the 767 replacement (not a sure thing...but) anyone know just how many 78s UA has on option? Also I presume there is a guaranteed delivery time frame should these options be confirmed? There are unfirmed options for 50 787’s (any mode...Jump to post
Some updates from United’s new Fleet Plan released with their Q1 Results: Total CR2’s at year-end 122 (likely will see a few of the Skywest birds retired) Total ER4’s at year-end 177 (looks like a few more will be pulled back into service for ExpressJet as the CommutAir fleet continues to grow) UA C...Jump to post
738: N77296 sked to exit IAH 589/17Mar - all indications are this GUM is now domestic, configuration, DTV, etc. Does anyone have information on a reduction in GUM aircraft? Yes the GUM fleet is expecting a small drawdown (1 or 2 aircraft) due to the reduction to the Guam route network. This aircraf...Jump to post

CALTECH, looking at the online 777 Production spreadsheet, it looks like 4 to 6 777 units per month are completed. The 2145/2146 are in Pre assembly and only 11 and 13 units behind the last Delivered unit. They appear to be headed for a possible Apr/May delivery. Looking like a Mar/Apr rollout then...Jump to post
Last and (THANK YOU UAinAUS!) when you say “no other changes anticipated” does that mean “just don’t know yet” or “NOT going to happen”?...eg; could UA change their minds about the 767-400?

What’s happening to the refits on the existing 737 fleet: mostly the new F seat? I’ve done roughly 10 legs over the past 3 months on UA 737s, they were all 800s & 900s, Y seemed to have gotten the new leather slimlines, but F were all the old uncomfortable seats. When are they going to ramp up ...Jump to post
has c5 ended q200 service at ewr with the schedule change? If so, is there any idea of how many aircraft will exit? Not yet... I believe the last C5 Q200 service is planned for January. Correction.

I agree it's sad to see UA adding CR2s... Such a miserable aircraft! The ER4s are way better. Does anyone know how long the ER3s and DH2s will be sticking around? I thought the ER3s were going to be dumped long ago. The E35s will be leaving. 2 in exit prep now. I'd expect all 5 to be gone this Wint...Jump to post

Does "Cape Air does not have a CPA" mean the ATRs in Guam are at-risk flying? Yeah the Cape Air flying is at-risk. The risk is quite low as those flights are vital links in that region. Regarding CommutAir, yes the plan is to transition to all-ERJ fleet. And this plan is being pushed up. ...Jump to post

The 3-class 763s have already started Mod and will enter service in the fall. The next fleet for Polaris seats will be the sUA 3-class 772s, followed by sCO 2-class 772s.

Hello! Perhaps this info is somewhere in here, but have any 737's gotten the new First Class seat yet, and if so how many, and which ones?

I can 100% state that the 4 ex-Copa 73Gs were delivered/inducted with the standard seats and were slimlined along with in-seat power installation and new F seats over the past few weeks. UA.com still not updated but all 4 ex-Copa birds also have power in F/E+.Jump to post

38 E170s and 63 CR7s At this point, do all CR7s have signature seats and all E70s have generic grey seats? Generic grey is the E70 final cabin fitting, right? Correct, unless they later try a re-fitted interior, which I'd doubt. And yes there are a couple of the ex-AA E170s in Republic house livery...Jump to post
Could they add additional E175s by replacing CRJ7s? Or does the scope specifically delineate by type rather than by seat count? Aircraft types are not specifically called out for the UAX fleet allocation portions of the contract. The contract allows 255 70- or 76-seat aircraft and, within that, 153...Jump to post
