Re: United Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

VC10er: Surely UA has the most hub oriented system in the US. There are just a few routes between non-hubs, I think most left over from the CLE hub. I have thought UA should go through an analysis to determine what non-hub to non-hub flights should be flown. They probably have already. Of course, I ...

Re: United Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

My guess on the 764 is that Door 2, not on the 763, doesn't match well with the length of Polaris seat sections. So, if the 764 gets Polaris and seating doesn't fit well, they could receive a smaller Polaris section with 2 or 3 rows of Y or PE in front of Door 2. UA has enough variance in route dema...

I can't disagree if we open the discussion to reconfigure 772ER aircraft as they age and possibly replace 772A units. I'd guess time will tell if PE seats will be installed or demanded on hub to hub or routes like ORD-HNL-GUM - I expect 772A density behind door 2 if Polaris was reduced. In any case ...

My guess is the perfect aircraft for replacement of the 772A on Hawaiian and GUM operations will be a combination of the 764 and 78X (both have fewer seats than the 772A). The 78X has a relatively lower J percentage and offers more seat, range and cargo capacity than the 772A. Perfect for HNL-GUM, w...
