And it could be that the first UA 772A Hawaiian aircraft is in the shop. N215UA has been in SFO since 1/22 - not sure the reason. If new config, expected to keep 2-5-2 in back and move 7 across Business seats to the front of the aircraft with probably 5 rows of 7 for a config of 35-312.

I worked that one today, thought she looked a bit shiny...


Does anyone know if a standard interior color scheme has been picked for regional aircraft or if they're just leaving them with whatever they've already got (even after heavy checks) until they retire the current frames?

As much as I was a CO fan, I do prefer the UAEx interior scheme on the ExpressJet birds... I never got the lavender and grey mix on the COEx operation.

If the curet expectation are correct United will go from 6 777 in domestic configuration to 13 777. Why would United need so many domestic 777's? The only 2 markets to Hawaii where I can see UA needing to add domestic 777's is LAX-HNL and probably EWR-HNL. DEN-HNL market is all over the place at times its a 757, 767 and there was even a time when UA did use a 777 but it seems like a 767 should be enough capacity on this route and as far as IAD-HNL putting a 777 on that route would be to much capacity. The 764 UA currently uses on this route is probably the right amount that this market can support dumping a 777 with 315 seats in coach on this route just seems like a waste.

So besides the Hawaii market what other domestic markets need a 777 because since the merger sUA use of wide body aircraft on domestic routes has been reduced drastically in favor of increasing the number of non stops in particular markets and moving/refurbishing those domestic aircraft to international service/routes.

It will be 9, 3 more 772s will receive IPTE and 3 of the remaining old international config will go to domestic, plus the current 6.

The 14 763s that were converted to 2-class international were more or less replaced by 12 753s, and now the 4 764 HI configs will be replaced by 3 high density 772s. The original 6 will be kept domestic as well. They are not adding high-density capacity, they are standardizing around 2 types to shift other widebodies to international lift and growth. In fact,, they are actually reducing the total number high-density aircraft.

Quoting jayunited (Reply 7):

I expect they'll be utilized on all the mainland routes currently having widebodies to Hawaii -- SFO, ORD, EWR, IAD, and IAH -- which will, in the cases of EWR, IAD, and IAH, represent an increase in seats. LAX, now essentially all-757 to Hawaii, could see one, but I doubt it.  

GUM to NRT and HNL will use 3-4 frames of the total 9, and that pretty much does it. I wouldn't be surprised if HNL-NRT went this way too, even though that flight is now on 3-class aircraft.

Also, UA will no doubt occasionally continue to fly 763s, 764s, and 777s to the Islands in int'l config. as they do now.

Does UA's SEA-NRT flight use the 77A or will they upgauge the product?

No it's usually flown by the ER...the 77A can fly the route, and has as a sub however.

I don't think they have picked a standard interior color scheme for any of the aircraft yet....the 752 refresh uses the same fabric in Y as on the IPTE birds while new 739ERs use the CO standard.... 
I know the voices in my head aren't real but sometimes their ideas are just awesome!!!

Lately it's been getting A-model birds pretty regularly.

Tu 19FEB - N779UA (A)
We 20FEB - N796UA (ER)
Th 21FEB - N772UA (A)
Fr 22FEB - N779UA (A)

I've been surprised to notice a few A-model birds on SFO flights recently too, most notably on UA885 SFO-KIX a week or two ago. I had no idea the A-models could reasonably fly that far.

N786UA could just be replacing N215UA. which is sked to exit tomorrow. It also could be the first conversion to hawaiian config.
N799UA is an ER unit and is to get ITPE. N786UA is already in SFO for ITPE with an estimated exit around 3/7/13. Doubt if there will be two in ITPE mod at the same time.

752 Maint:
N561UA sked to exit MIA 239/22Feb
N517UA (ps unit) entered SFO 2/3/13 - potential this aircraft is being pulled from service. It was on an exit list

Why not just fit out the entire 753 fleet, ETOPs aircraft, with the DirecTV, the ETOPs birds do make rotations within the lower 48 in addition to the Hawaii flights. Or go with AVOD like sCO's 757s and the planned newly reconfigured PS 757s.

Almost nothing has happened with these planes in months. I get all the UAX planes not being in a hurry to repaint, but these are the only planes left that say Continental (other than the Retrojet) It seems like United would want to nip these 7 planes, particularly since they just need to retitle. Is it likely that they are done and just not confirmed, or has anyone out there seen these seven still wearing Continental Express?

Not sure which one was observed, but one RON'd at LGA on 2/13. I was surprised to see it.

Darn, it looks like 772 N768UA is operating 201/24Feb today SFO-HNL, still in its old International copnfiguration - was hoping it would get new Hawaiian configuration.

Maybe that will follow, but since they have IFE and fly mostly Hawaii, it should be more important to place DTV on the 13 739ERs (3456-3468) that have E+ but were delivered with no IFE.

Maybe the programming is a bit different, but there are 79 sUA 752s (plus about 150 Airbues) flying mostly domestic with the same overhead IFE as the ETOPS 753's. Putting AVOD on them would still give them a subfleet, but could be considered if the product is about the same install price and superior to DTV over the Pacific.

Once 753 #3854 goes through INT, we'll see which aircraft are next. I hope its the 739ERs, followed by the 738 mid lavs and then the 753 ETOPS.

There were 8, but one was done last month-ish. 2 or 3 of them need a full paint job. I see them semi-regularly in BNA... two RONed the same night a week or two ago.

752 Fleet Exit:

Maint:
763 N656UA Exited GSO 2/24/13 after extended 2+ month heavy check.

744 N118UA Now to Exit HKG 6869/26Feb after extended 7+ week heavy check.

738 N27213 Entered INT 6855/25Feb
This puts 2 738s in INT, don't expect last 753 due for DTV/E+ to enter INT soon

Aah, the maintenance hub... on a ferry, it must be a fairly significant issue. With QF, the world's foremost 747 expert, right there in SYD, I'm having a hard time figuring out just what would warrant a ferry permit. Yikes.

It doesn't mean the aircraft is a maintenance ferry. United uses ferry numbers 6849-6880 and 7945-7974 all the time to move aircraft around.

The flight was cancelled and out of position and I assume the aircraft needs to move back to the U.S. Unless there was a cross cancellation.

Probably cheaper to do the work in-house and QF has been outsourcing more and more MTC to MNL lately so who knows what assets they have available at this point to work on another airlines aircraft....UA has been working on the 747 since 1970 and SFO TechOps is more then capable of dealing with whatever is thrown its way.

Lease expired, returned to lessor. Given the aircraft's age, number of hours/cycles and the resale market for a PW-powered 757, its owner obviously feels they will get a better return with a part-out, so next stop is the scrapper's torch, unfortunately.
