Re: UA Maintenance at HOU

HOU usually has one to two units on the ground.
Now the 39M is being Inducted in HOU and recently 3 have been on the ground (1 currently in SKF for WiFi).
737NG maintenance and some mods (slimlines, could be scimitars, upgrades, etc.
The 319/320 fleet has also visited HOU.

Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

I really don't get the MOM concept. If you ask me a widebody needs fly TATL, which means cargo capacity, which means LD3s, which allows Polaris to fit with 4 sets across (787/777). That seems a lot like the 788 or pulled 783. How much cheaper would the 783 be to purchase and operate? The 787-3 range...

777s are a kind of mix and match situation with wings, fuel tanks, fuselage length, gear and engines. 772L (and 772F) have more in common with the 77W.
