Question About Widebody Domestic Flights

Fri Mar 11, 2005 7:21 am

I am looking to take a domestic trip on a widebody (DC-10, B747, B777, A330, A340 or something similar)next month but I can't find any of these types on domestic routes anymore. I'm looking at flying out from BOS, JFK, or EWR. Can someone tell me who/where are these types of widebodies still being used domestically. Thanks

Usually to the hub or on High Capacity routes, but generally not any larger than a 767/330 anymore. UAL used to op domestic 747's but they can't fill them anymore. For the 777, I think DL is still runing some from ATL- MCO and UAL might be running LAX - IAD. They're going to be tough to find.

NW flies DC-10's from SEA and MSP to HNL. DL flies a few routes out of ATL on 777's (like to Florida), and AA flies a few positioning flights out of DFW (to LAX) and MIA (to JFK). UA also uses the 777 on some flights to HNL and out of DEN to ORD. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

If you can make it to San Francisco or Denver on March 26 here's a chance to fly a UA 747-400:

26 MAR 05 Fly SFO to DEN
UA 720 Dep SFO 2:00 PM Arr DEN 5:23 PM Dur: 2h:23m
DepTerm:3 Equip:744 ArrTerm:

26 MAR 05 Fly DEN to SFO
UA 423 Dep DEN 8:00 PM Arr SFO 9:32 PM Dur: 2h:32m
DepTerm: Equip:744 ArrTerm:3

Looks like it's a one-off, operating that day only.

Plenty of 777s in and out of Denver on UA, to ORD, IAD and SFO. Lots of 763s too, to those cities and also to LAX and HNL.

I believe CO has a EWR-IAH 777 flight. Also, DEN-ORD, ORD-SFO, etc on UA are sometimes operated by 777 or 744.

COA between IAH / KIAH), USA - Texas">IAH and EWR / KEWR), USA - New Jersey">EWR fly, 762, and the 777(which does IAH / KIAH), USA - Texas">IAH-EDDF via EWR / KEWR), USA - New Jersey">EWR)

United has a 767-300ER between SFO and DEN. A 744, 763, and a 777 between SFO and ORD.
Between LAX and ORD 767-300's and 777's are used.

A few months after 9/11 i flew 777 from EWR-mco first class it was amazing. The only reason being CO had grounded all Europe service at the time and that day the stand by list was at like 40 ( my dad works for co ) it was so cool flying the 777 for a 2 hour flight.
