No More UA 744 For Atlantic Flight

Sat Oct 20, 2001 2:17 am

I noticed that from October 31, 2001, there will be NO UA 744 flying across the Atlantic. All UA Atlantic's flight will operate by 777s.

Anyone noticed this as well?

767 ORD-DUS

I think the Chicago-Dusseldorf flight is still a 767 flight.

This is actually a smart move given that winter travel between the USA and Europe tends to have fewer pax, so flying the 777-200ER on these routes makes more sense. This is similar to the practice AF and LH does flying the A340-300 to the USA during the winter months on many transatlantic routes.

I expect by next spring you'll see the 747-400 on UA's transatlantic routes from the US West Coast again.

I think that there was one IAD-LHR flight that was scheduled to be a 744, now a 777. Wasn't UA all 763/777 accross the atlantic last winter too? As mentioned above, much of this is typical schedule change, and a lot is the 9/11 effect. UA is having an especially difficult time, I am curious as the whether they maintain service to smaller european cities like DUS, BRU and ZRH.

ORD-NRT is down to 1 daily flight and one ANA codeshare (which used to be a 744 for a bit too!).

I think that was the same last winter (not using 744s over the Atlantic).
As far as I know they weren't using them for Westcoast - Europe flights but ORD or IAD to Europe.

India will be gone from UAL's schedule as of October 30th. It seems that they'lll never comback let alone restarting LHR-DEL. It didn't work out the first time.

I am sure at least one of the ORD-FRA flights will stay 744.

Scratch LAX-HKG and HKG-SIN from the 744 line up. Not sure how long those flights are gone for.

Now there are as many as 2 744s per day flying LAX-ORD,DEN and IAD. There are also more 777s flying these routes.
There are also now less flights, but about the same amount of passengers capacity.
