UA 737 With All Y Layout

Sun Sep 05, 2004 12:50 pm

I noticed a UA 737 flying DEN-ORD today as flight 254 with an all coach layout. It is a 737-300 listed as having a Y156 layout. Is this a sign of things to come? It's the first one I've seen.

Very interesting...It's either a mistake in the computer system, or perhaps a test to see what the future holds. They did that with buy on board, and now it's a reality.

And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!

You sure it was not a sub with a TED A320? TED's A320's seat Y156.

I was looking to list on a flight home today, when I came across that one. I called Res. to ask about it, but they too were surprised at what they were seeing. I could have gotten on it, but with a nice widebody leaving a few hours later with F Class and Dinner, you can guess which flight I picked Big grin

Normally when they sub an aircraft it will show as a sub in the computer. This one didn't. So I'm not sure what was going on.

When an aircraft is subbed, the ops agent or IOMs need to change out the seat mask. There is no way you could fit 156 people in a UAL737, maybe a NWA DC-9 but not one of our 37's. Smile

Aircraft sub from a 737 to an A32S (#4965). Happens a lot, but when you use weblist, it shows the original aircraft type, only with the new config.
