The entire 747-400 fleet of 44 will be converted to the new configuration of 14UF/84UB/270UE. There are currently 20 aircraft complete (of which 4 of the 7 OP's have been converted).

The Economy PTV's for UA's 747-400 fleet was put on hold last year, but has now been re-approved for installation beginning in late 2001.

Thanks FLY777UAL! BTW, where did you hear that from? I'll ask my dad when the PTV's are going to be installed in coach. It will most likly be an SSR project at SFO, since they handle most SSR operations.
Thanks for the information!

Always fly U N I T E D

PTV's will be installed starting Fall quarter 2001.

All the information I receive is from my sources...Surf now knows the names of a few of them!

Fly--

I'm guessing that the PTVs will be installed in tandem w/the new blue Decor interiors? Are any PTVs installed in Econ on any 744's yet?

I would think that the PTV's would be introduced with the new decor. As of now, no PTV's have been installed.

This makes particular sense now that AN have announced they will be commencing Aust-USA services in their own right from January. Obviously UA will codeshare with these flights just as AN codeshares on UA's. As AN will be using 744s sourced from SQ these will be equipped with Krisworld. UA would have to offer a complementary feature.

YAY, YAY and YAY!!!!

Why don't you find out why the OP is being converted to OB config. JFK-NRT i'm sure has NO problem filling that entire huge business section...I'm curious to know why.

Thanks
