UA Fleet Question Help

Thu Mar 10, 2005 12:46 am

What year did UA have the most active of the following:

747's? I'm guessing mid '90's

777's? I'm guessing late '90's

767's? I'm guessing mid to late 90's

DC10's? I'm guessing early to mid 90's?

When did they have the largest active wide-body fleet? My guess mid 90's?

How could I find this on my own?

You mad Bro???

This should give you some sort of answer

Just click on United, scroll down to below the fleet totals and then click on whole fleet.

Hope this helps.

Edit: I just noticed that for some reason this is not showing their DC-10's. Perhaps someone else could find something on them.

DC10's early to mid 90's? I don't agree. I would say the 80's for the DC-10. It was in the early to mid 90's (93/94) that United started phasing out the DC-10 in favor of the 777.

747-400: I would say mid 90's to early 2000's
777: I would say late 90's to present (mid 2000's)
767: I would say early 90's to early 2000's

Yes, I would say United was in its best shape during the second half of the 90's with a large fleet of 747-400's, 767's and 777's.

Now, when the narrowbodies are/were most active:

757: mid 90's to present (mid 2000's)
A319/320: mid 90's to present (mid 2000's)
737-300/500: early 90's to early 2000's

Past aircraft:
727: 70's, 80's and early 90's
DC-8: 60's, 70's and 80's
737-200: 70's, 80's and early 90's
Classic 747: 80's and early 90's
Caravelle: 60's
I don't mention the L-1011 because United only inherited a small fleet of those from Pan Am and those didn't stay long.

Possible future aircraft: 787 mid 2010's

Quoting American 767 (Reply 2):

Actually, UA's 777 fleet is smaller now than it was pre-9/11

For the 767s, you have to look to the time where 763 orders ended but the 762s were still plying heavy.
