I'm pretty sure EWR-EZE is operated by a 3 class 763 though (which doesn't have winglets).

It started with a 3-cab 763ER, but has been a 2-cab 67E for quite some time now, with winglets.

Flightaware was wrong. 356 was N541UA today. 5944 at VCV probably on a lease return.

If the terms of the lease are less favorable than another 752 I doubt UA cares what it has installed. Only reason I could see UA holding onto a more expensive bird is for ETOPS.

Post Edited for 739ER New delivery:
N37464 is now en route BFI-MCO flight 6850/19Dec.


There was a list posted some time back that had the below 752s listed for retirement/lease returns. I don't have much confidence it as the Sep birds are still flying. Hoping someone could verify if the list has any value at this point.

Retirements on the list (standard Domestic 752 and Globe paint unless noted) - None of the below have undergone Interior Refresh at MCO

Sep 2012 527UA & 544UA (both in UA Blue) Note: 544 is ETOPS
Jan 2013 598UA
Feb 2013 532UA, 517UA (both are ps units with UA Blue paint)
March 2013 508UA (also ps unit)

Only reason I could see UA holding onto a more expensive bird is for ETOPS.

Also minor fuel savings/better range with Winglets

True, but I wonder if that would be enough to offset the lease terms. I'm sure the beancounters running UA have spreadsheets taking all this into account. Same reason they'd retire 598...the newest 752 in the pmUA fleet but probably also worth the most to a lessor.

I'm personally surprised they'd dump an ETOPS bird though, I figured the remaining 752s would be delegated to p.s. and Hawaii.

598 is also an ETOPs bird, so who knows. I was kind of shocked to see both 544 and 598 on that original list.

What is the status of the conversion of the Star Alliance aircraft from the tulip to the globe (in the small United title at the lower front)? I saw a 772 with the blue/orange tulip at IAD on Tuesday but was not close enough to get the registration.
I can't decide whether I miss the tulip or the bowling shoe more

That was N218UA. The other PMUA 772 in *A livery is N794UA, which has the new title and the nacelles painted gray. It's unknown whether 218 will be completely repainted or just get the title/nacelle touchup.

Also, 744 N121UA does not appear to have been updated.

All others have been updated.

N665UA en route 6876/21Dec GSO-SEA, then 6976/22Dec SEA-HKG for 2 class upgrade

735 fleet exit:
N18622 to ferry IAH-HOU 6849/22Dec, undoubtedly for fleet exit

It looks like sUA 752 N547UA exited MCO 7948/21Dec with an Interior Refresh as it was in MCO about a week.

N544UA is in VCV for either paint or a lease return. We'll just have to wait and see - it was not removed from the fleet in Sep and neither was N527UA.

Sorry to (temporarily) hijack the thread, but I was wondering how long it takes to install those new bins on the Airbus aircraft? Is it possible to do in a day, with a good crew to install them and the paper work, or it more of a day-long thing? 4295 sat in DEN all day in MX, until they pulled it out to do 779, so I was wondering.

Thanks!

Is there any way we can add the 757-222 refurbishment program to the fleet listing?
I am sched to fly 540 on Sunday, but I don't know if it's a refurbished aircraft!
Hope it is... the last pmUA 752 I flew on got me there safely, and that's the best thing I can say about it.

I've posted the Interior Refresh program as they exit MCO on the fleet page (In remarks).
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aj3TTkYJD3ICdDVrdkZqS3g5R0F2THBJcDRpclZkT2c#gid=7
there may be a few that I've missed in the last month as the program looked like it had stalled, - will check on them later today.

Re aircraft 540UA - it was in MCO 9/28-10/6, so I'm pretty sure it has been refurbished.

I've flown on a few non-refurbished pmUA 752's. Overall, what do these refreshes do to the aircraft? I assume there are no new features added. Is it just bins, seat covers, carpet, sidewalls, stuff like that? Thanks.

From CALTECH's post on upgrade thread #13 Nov 10,2012

"What I have seen so far, new back and bottom cushions and covers, armrests and tray tables repaired/replaced, overhead bin doors and overhead bins being painted or new installs, new sidewall panels or maybe they are just getting paint too, DADO panels getting cleaned, new curtains, deco on galleys, closets lavs and kick panels redone.. . . . . "

I believe the carpet in galleys are being replaced with a rubberized product.

Indeed, which is supposed to improve the overall odor of the cabin, by removing ancient, coffee-soaked carpet.

There are 3 sUA752s aircraft in IND. N596UA (ETOPS unit) was to be the first with the new ps configuration and it's been in IND since 10/16. N520UA entered 11/15 and N516UA on 11/30. I've been checking daily for any movement. I assume all three are in for ps, but 516 and 520 are older units (w/o ETOPS or overwater equp).
While ps service doesn't require ETOPS or overwater certification, some on these boards have stated maybe ps units could be utilized on selected TATL routes. We'll have to see what units get the new ps configuration. For what its worth, with sCO 753s, there is somewhat less need for UA ETOPS units. Of course some of the 753s are covering former 763 routes to Hawaii.

That picture of the rubber flooring looks horrible! Would rather have the carpeting. If I recall, the carpeting in the galleys were in sections and could simply be ripped up, cleaned (shampooed) and replaced. Also less chance of flight attendants and passengers slipping if there's a spill too, and the floors don't get sticky.
