Time For A Good United Rumor

Thu Nov 30, 2006 11:09 pm

I heard this one yesterday from a UAL employee (who actually insists that it is true, but whatever)...too good to pass up in my opinion...

"United will order B737-700/800's and put all A319/320 into Ted. The B787 will be ordered in conjunction with the 737's."

The 787 order is certainly forthcoming...but a large 73G order? You wonder where people come up with this stuff!

Not going to happen.

UA has scores of A320 family deliveries on hold. They'll take them before they order an NG.

Also, the A319 is not as amicable to "TEDification" as the A320 because the capacity is too low.

And besides, there are no significant expansions of TED service being planned at this time.
