UAL 757's Now In MSP!

Mon Jan 17, 2005 1:03 pm

For those who live around MSP and would like to take some pics, UAL now operates a B757 for two of the flights. The first arrives at 2:24pm and the other at 6:30pm.

It was a nice surprise to ride on a 757 into MSP!

What is UA using them on? I thought they were already using 757s on the MSP-DEN route.

UAL is using the 757 on some weird routes, weird by my standards.

DEN-DSM
DEN-OMA
DEN-COS
ORD-MSP
ORD-DSM

Seems UAL 752's get in here only through equip upgrades at the time..........it has always been 737's and an occasional Airbus.

I check Flytecomm here at MSP daily and haven't seen a 752 for some time.

UA 752's have also returned to the ORD-YYZ route for the 1st time in a while. Scheduled thru at least April.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Yeah the 757s are back on the CLE-ORD route as well. They come and go throughout the year.

Those aren't weird routes for UAL 757s at all...OMA has had 757 service for years and years, with DC-10s and DC-8s prior to that. COS had 757 service off and on for several years also, especially during the WestPac days. DSM, being a smaller market seems like an unlikely route, but has also been a recipient of 757s for at least the past 7 or 8 years.

Albuquerque, Greensboro, Manchester, and Providence are also small-medium sized markets that have/had UAL 757 service.
