United PS Service PDX-DEN

Sun Oct 08, 2006 6:34 am

Well, for one flight today. It was flight 582 PDX-DEN 9:05am departure. This aircraft (5415) was substituted for a normal 757. I have never seen the interior of one of these. It's pretty darn nice. It is really weird to see how large business class is when you step into the plane from door 2L.

I guess CS was lucky today. It was a pretty light load. The back only had about 100 passengers today. So CS had to upgrade about 25 people to business. I guess it was a good day to be a Premier. The flight when out with three empty seats in first, and full in business and economy.

First question - Why was there a United B757 PS in PDX to begin with? It must have been substituted for a plane bound for PDX the night before. I am wondering if it was this flight, since it was delayed 1 hour out of SFO:

If that is the case, then I am wondering if any of the PS flights on Oct 6th were cancelled (which I did not see any cancelled) or is this just a spare B757 PS plane or one right out of mx?

BTW - Now they are going to have a B757 PS plane in DEN and will need to get it to SFO, LAX or JFK. There must be some lucky passengers on that plane today... Much, much, much nicer interior than the regular mainline B757's!

It looks like it flew DEN-LAX later that day.
