I love those planes, they are definite classics and I'm glad that I'll be flying them four more times before the year is out (ORD-MCO, FLL-ORD, ORD-LGA, LGA-ORD ). But another side of me also wants the 727's to go soon as far as passenger comfort is concerned - no video screens and they are still loud from almost anywhere in the plane. These are not complaints; just speaking in terms of comparison to United's newer aircraft. I will miss looking at them however, especially on takeoff.
So does anybody know when United plans to retire these birds and what planes will replace their existence? Particularly their most popular 727 routes such as ORD-LGA and LGA-ORD. I asked 5 different friends and got 5 different answers. Surely someone here could give me a more definite answer.
Thanks and best regards
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
