Quoting bgm (Reply 1):

I just encountered a new UA booking plan for 777's. I was on my wasy to GRU from IAD. To GRU they use an old configured 777, however, no matter what your status is they WILL NOT upgrade you even with a systemwide until departure at the gate. No pre upgrading before because "if" they swap equipment at the last minute and they put on a NEW configuration 777 then they don't want to bump you backwards as there are less seats in F on the new 777. Makes sense- but I reserve my systemwides just for that - an OLD 777 so I can go from a full fare business seat in the OLD recliner and get the bed seat- old as it might be. The same policy exisits for people looking to bump up from economy to business. There are less biz seats on the new config.
So beware if you choose UA and wish to upgrade on a 777-- be sure to ask first if it's an old or new configuration and see if they can upgrade you- they will if F is empty enough that it does not exceed the new F seating and if they still have some revenue seats to sell. -- I did fly last night but my upgrade didn't clear until 10 minutes before boarding and did only because I was GS. (And they are NOT maintaining the seats at all- old, tattered cushions and the personal player was busted- the ice cream took an hour to melt enough to put a spoon in)
The world is missing love, let's use our flights to spread it!

It may just be a temporary glitch of some type.

United.com won't display seat maps for ticketed flights I have from October 27th through January 5th.

Yeah, just had the old 777 back from Dulles on Friday. While I love the old F suites (collapsable armrest, the front table you can slide forward into, the width around your head in bed mode, how they face the windows and not inward), it's painfully obvious the company has just given up on maintaining these seats - some of them are truley pathetic. My armrest was destroyed (could be taken off completely), the tape player door was missing, reading lamp didn't work, the PTV woulsnt stand up straight (and it looked shot, with nothing but dark lines), and the seat controls looked filthy. this isn't the first time either - I flew to Chicago two weeks ago on an old 777 and it was a similar story. Same with the sfo-lax 777 I had last month, only that seat wouldn't even fully recline. woops!

It sounds like UA has determined it's cheaper to simply compensate their F flyers with generous vouchers/miles for these disasterously conditioned seats than actually fix them. They will all be gone by 2013...

In other news, on the CO side, the IFE on non-AVOD or DirecTV equipped planes have been replaced with UA's IFE programming. Continental Visions is no more. No loss there.

The in-flight music channels are also all new -- no more Zune or PMCO offerings.

Domestic F meals are also provisioned with the PMUA salt and pepper packets (albeit with the globe now). The salt and pepper shakers have been retired.
In thrust we trust!

Anyone have a new PMUA paint schedule/timeline?

I have two repaint schedules/timelines for PMUA mainline aircraft, published by United in Dec 2010 and Mar 2011. Both of them match each other but neither one matches what has been completed so far. Here are the numbers...

by 6/30/2011 scheduled complete - 139
actual complete (back on the line) - 107

by 9/30/2011 scheduled complete - 197
actual complete (back on the line) - 127

I understand the CO fleet has been assigned fleet ID's to align them with UA nomenclature.

For example the United international 3-class 763 fleet is known as MI / 67I.

These ID numbers are used internally in everything from reservations to crewing to documentation.

Fleet / 2 Character ID / 3 Character ID.
737-500 = GV / 73K
737-700 = GW / 73W (IFE differences)
737-700 = GP / 73P
737-800 = GR / 73X (mid-cabin Lav)
737-800 = GT / 73T (short field performance package)
737-800 = GY / 73M (Air Mike)
737-800 = GX / 73H
737-900 = GZ / 73D
737-900ER = GO / 73E
757-200 = DX / 75W
757-300 = DZ / 75L
767-200 = DT / 76T
767-400 = DI / 76F (Intl version)
767-400 = DH / 76H (Domestic version)
777-200 = XZ / 77S

Additionally the to be retrofitted United domestic 767-300 aircraft which starts this winter will be known as ME / 67E once out in their new 2-class international configuration.


Lastly, I understand the planned 787-8 delivery configuration should be 36+183 of which 63 are Y+.

Great info...thanks. I had no idea CO took the short field performance which I believe was first developed for GOL. They must be the recent deliveries since that package has only been around 2-3 years. Any idea which ship numbers?

Also...do you have the UA internal codes?

United fleet.

A319 = AJ / 19J
A320 = AB / 20B
A320 = AD / 20D (ex TED 6 added seats)
A320 = AU / 20U (over-water)
A320 = AV / 20V (ex TED with 6 extra seats, over water)
747-400 = OC / 47C
757-200 = MP / 57p (p.s.)
757-200 = MQ / 57Q
757-200 = MU / 57U (overwater)
757-200 = MX / 57X (ETOPS)
767-300 = MD / 67D (2-class domestic)
767-300 = ME / 67E (future 2-class Intl)
767-300 = MI / 67I (3-class)
777-200 = XA / 77A (non ER, 2-class domestic)
777-200 = XC / 77C (non ER)
777-200 = XD / 77D (non ER, IPTE)
777-200 = XI / 77I (ER)
777-200 = XJ / 77J (ER, IPTE)
777-200 = XP / 77P (ER, crew module)
777-200 = XQ / 77Q (ER, IPTE, crew module)

There is a further 757 sub fleet version with only nose number differences in the MP and MX fleets to differentiate winglet vs non-winglet equipped.
Additionally there is a single MQ floating around with 4 additional economy seats and testing a new slimline cabin.

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 8):
737-700 = GW / 73W (IFE differences)
737-700 = GP / 73P

Are one of these subtypes basically the Air Mike version of the 73G because the only 73Gs without PTVs now are the ones flying out of GUM?

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 8):
737-800 = GT / 73T (short field performance package)

Are there any ways to identify an SFP 738 other than finding out the ID?

Thanks for sharing.

Any idea which ship numbers?

I don't have the tail numbers with me, however its 25 tails as of now.

Quoting FL787 (Reply 12):
Are there any ways to identify an SFP 738 other than finding out the ID?

There are a bunch of small changes, however I believe the best visible difference is the tail skid.
The SFP uses the -900ER two-postion tail skid.

There was a thread about it
B737-800 Rear Fuselage/tail Question (pic) (by LNv22 Mar 19 2008 in Tech Ops)

Other things like sealed slats are unlikely to be noticed unless you really know what you are looking at.

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 8):
I understand the CO fleet has been assigned fleet ID's to align them with UA nomenclature.

For example the United international 3-class 763 fleet is known as MI / 67I.

These ID numbers are used internally in everything from reservations to crewing to documentation.

Fleet / 2 Character ID / 3 Character ID.
737-500 = GV / 73K
737-700 = GW / 73W (IFE differences)
737-700 = GP / 73P
737-800 = GR / 73X (mid-cabin Lav)
737-800 = GT / 73T (short field performance package)
737-800 = GY / 73M (Air Mike)
737-800 = GX / 73H
737-900 = GZ / 73D
737-900ER = GO / 73E
757-200 = DX / 75W
757-300 = DZ / 75L
767-200 = DT / 76T
767-400 = DI / 76F (Intl version)
767-400 = DH / 76H (Domestic version)
777-200 = XZ / 77S

Additionally the to be retrofitted United domestic 767-300 aircraft which starts this winter will be known as ME / 67E once out in their new 2-class international configuration.

Hi LAXintl !

Thanks for the info !

Will this also mean that the PMCO fleet will get UA four-digit fleentumbers eg 2822 = N222UA ?

They already have. Continental aircraft now have '0' or '00' or '000' in front of the ship number to mesh with the four digit UA codes. A CO 777 is now ship '0002'; a CO 764 is now ship '0064'; a CO 737 is now ship '0254'. They started this immediately upon the merger and initiation of painting.

That/s not the same system. All the CO planes just have a zero in front of the ship number; UA's aircraft have different numbers depending on confiugration. An IPTE 777-200/ER is 28xx, while a 777-200 with IPTE seats is 24xx.

Since all CO planes have a 0, there's no way to figure out the different versions unless you check on a computer. With UA's system you can visually just look at the aircraft to know which version it is.

I thought too was the "500" ship number 800's were the ones with the short field performance package, because
most of the "200" ship numbers are 800's. One of the MX told me, since I wondered why we have two different A/C ID's for the 800's.

I haven't heard anything about totally changing ship numbers to the UA system.....yet. But we are doing a lot of training lately and most of it will be in the UA way of doing things. I'll have to learn their A/C ID numbering system.

The first 100 deliveries of 738's are the "200's."

It appears (from an outsider) that CO simply ran out of "200" numbers after the first 100 deliveries. Then they moved on the "500's." I would be surprised if the first 100 deliveries were ordered without the SFP.

The 0500 ship numbers are indeed 737-800s, but only because 0201-0299 are already assigned. Like I said, I am pretty confident that 0507+ are 737-800SFP, as will be all future 737-800 deliveries.

I also believe 507 and up are the SFP's as it was explained to me by someone at MCO mtc.

Regarding the 738 ship numbers...the first delivery actually started with 210 and went up from there. Once the fleet reached 299, they went back and started at 201 up to 211. If I recall correctly the 737-100/200 fleet was not completely off the certificate at the time of the first 73H delivery and those ex-People and ex-Frontier 737 basics were also given the 200 range for fleet numbers. 201-211 were 737-130's from People.

The PMUA 777 with 3-3-3 are sweeeeeet. Rode one from DEN-ORD. This A/C nose # 2888 seemed pretty freshly redone.

Quoting n7371f (Reply 32):
Where at MCO? I wasn't aware of a paint hangar or company down here.

There isn't one. There are the two Continental mx hangars, but they don't do any painting that I'm aware of. Nor have I ever seen an OO jet here before. MX757 should be able to verify this.

Something doesn't make sense here.

Kind of off topic but I did not think it was worthy of a new thread. I noticed in the photo below that it is tagged as a 787-822. Curious if this has been confirmed as the customer number going forward (22 vs 24) or if it is just a guess on Royal's part? I know this was a question asked many times that I do not recall getting answered...

Checking Flight Aware, Micronesia aircraft N14249 has not been operational for a few weeks - possibly the current aircraft in HK for check and rebrand??

Quoting n7371f (Reply 33):
Regarding the 738 ship numbers...the first delivery actually started with 210 and went up from there. Once the fleet reached 299, they went back and started at 201 up to 211. If I recall correctly the 737-100/200 fleet was not completely off the certificate at the time of the first 73H delivery and those ex-People and ex-Frontier 737 basics were also given the 200 range for fleet numbers. 201-211 were 737-130's from People.



Minor trivia correction. The 738 number sequencing was 210-250, Then back-filling 201-209 (for exactly the reason given by n7371f) then 251-299 and 501-531.

Even more trivial... the 73Gs are numbered 701-724, 726-736, 750. There was at the time still one B727 , Ship 725, in service so some    decided to assign #750 instead of just back-filling later.

Two things:

I noticed in the in flight magazine today that Mr. Smisek mentioned the 787's replacing widebodies...I'm assuming those are targets on the 762's?


Secondly, when does the first 764 go in (thought it was October) for the refit in BF and economy plus seating arrangement?

Thanks.

Three 757 have now been retired. 542, 582, & 583 unfortunately are gone. 5442 was already in the new paint (what a waste).

Also Mesa 512MJ has been in new paint for awhile

I'm pretty sure they were expiring leases. There are now 93 PMUA 757's. Not sure how many are leaving in the near future, but have heard rumors from several co-workers that the number was 10. (this was before these last 3 left the fleet).
