Hey Skytony,

How did you find that out? I have flown the UAL900/901 several times. I love United and will only fly UAL international. I have flown on N198UA, N119UA, & N116UA, all as UAL900/901. Awesome flights.

Thanks,

Darren

Hey Skytony, any chance to find out what's UA903 MUC/IAD 777 number? Will be taking that flight tomorrow.

777-500ER - enjoy your flight and don't forget about channel 9!

Darrenthe747 - totally agree with you, especially when to choose between LH and UA on FRA/IAD and MUC/IAD routs.

hey SU,

i have actually flown on LH as well on the same route (FRA-SFO-FRA) on LH454/455, also a 744. Great flight, but UA has channel 9 first of all, and they just have the most awesome paint scheme ever. It makes the 747 look truely majestic! I sure do hope UA will climb out of its bankruptcy and buy some 747-800's! wouldn't that be awesome??

Skytony, be careful, you never know what United might consider private or secure information.

All,

Quoting Darrenthe747 (Reply 5):

Sorry, it is the end of a long week and towards the end of a long year for me. Big grin

If I am flying on an given flight for a given reason, should the aircrafts's livery be in any way be important to me? (c.f. cost, service, schedule times, connection options, safety, etc).

Maybe I'm missing something.  Smile

Cheers,

well Buckieboy, when flying from FRA - SFO the two best options are LH and UAL. they are the only two non-stop. that pretty much means you have a choice between 2 airlines, right? both cost about the same (within $50 of each other...), now i think i will go with my favorite airline.
