United Flight 944

Mon Dec 26, 2005 12:01 am

Hello everyone and happy holidays!

I will be flying on UA Flight 944 (777) from DEN to ORD on the 27th (Tuesday), and was wondering if anyone here on A.net is in the know or even works for UA and could tell me what tail number will be flying that route. It will be my first time on a triple, and I could not be more excited. I am really hoping for the new colors, but would be extatic if it was the Star Alliance colors (N218UA).

Thanks A lot.

two days out is too far to get a good reading on a tail number for large US carriers..especially with weather on the east coast like there is. even 24hrs out does not mean much for a domestic leg between hubs. sorry bout that...

Hiflyer is correct. You most likely won't know the aircraft's registration until you're at the gate. Only some airlines are able to track this.. I was able to do something like this by calling VS the day of departure for a MCO-LGW flight- asked them if they could tell me the reg. of the aircraft that departed for MCO (I knew it would be a turnaround aircraft for my flight later that everning).

Good luck, and enjoy your flying United!  Smile

As of right now, it is supposed to be ship #2380. I'm not sure what N# this equates to. That info is outside in my car and it's late and raining. Like the guys above said, this a/c number is subject to change without notice. I hope you enjoy your trip in the friendly skies.

Good Morning!
You will enjoy it. A great airliner.
My first was DL, then to Heathrow on AA and over Thanksgiving on CO to Paris.

I'll look up the regs today and give you the regs *after* the flight. For security reasons it's against company policy (and every airline's that I know of) to give ship numbers out in advance. Are you looking for the LHR-IAD segment or the IAD-LAX seg of UA925/26DEC.

Thanks very much, it was the LHR-IAD segment.
