Will UA Use 744 For SFO-ORD? Run This Summer

Thu May 02, 2002 2:17 am

Last summer, I flew on a United 744 from SFO-ORD, it was flight 138 I believe early in the morning, I think 7am. I'm wondering if UA will use that plane again this summer for that run, maybe seasonal service? Thanks!

Yes.

Check http://www.ual.com for more schedule information.

This summer United will be using many widebodies on hub to hub routes. There will be muktiple 747s, 767s and 777s on SFO-ORD, SFO-DEN, LAX-DEN, LAX-ORD, and multiple 767s and 777s on ORD-SEA and ORD-IAD.

I'm still surprised that UA still doesn't want to fly LAX-JFK or SFO-JFK with 777 service.  Insane

Ray,

I know that the JFK runs have been considered on the 777 and I am sure that within the next few years they will be placed on that route. Right now, the loads are not high enough to warrent it.

But don't you think passengers on the LAX-JFK and SFO-JFK routes are tiring of flying the 767-200/300 all the time?? I'm sure they want something better by now.

Ooooh! ORD-LAX on a 744,I might have to go early to LA this year! Hey,do you think UA will ever put a 744 into LAS like they did in this October '99 pic? That would be almost as good as the DC-10's were.
