United Loads From HKG

Thu Nov 22, 2007 6:08 pm

Hi,

just a quick question especially for all those UA insider  Wink
I'm going to take UA from HKG to any US city in Business the 29th. Nov.
For your information, I'm staff so I'm travelling on standby.

Has anybody of you the exact loads of these flights (both in Business and Eco)? I would appreciate it very much!

29 NOV 2007

UA896 HKG ORD
UA856 HKG LAX
UA862 HKG SFO

looking through Amadeus the flights don't seem to be that busy, but I'm not familiar with UA and Amadeus availability therefore it would be great if you could tell me the exact loads.
all flights operated with 744 equip. afaik still with the current Business seats and 73 in total. Is that right?

Thanks for your help!

Ori

856 HKG - LAX F - 4/14 B - 33/73 E - 203/260

862 HKG - SFO F - 3/14 B - 29/73 E - 278/260

Hope this helps....

The new HKG-LAX flight seems to typically have the lightest load of the 3x UA flights, so you'd probably be best to try for that one. Also, all UA 744's are still in 14F/73C/260Y configuration. The first 744 won't go in for reconfig until 2Q-2008.

UA856 HKG-LAX loads:

30NOV: 14-6-9 / 73-42-9 / 260-220-0

01DEC: 14-10-5 / 73-59-3 / 260-237-0


Read those numbers as "seats available" - "seats booked" - "nonrevs listed"

If you've already listed for either of those, I can check to see where you are on the DM list (nonrev priority).

thanks very much!
I don't have a listing yet. I'm listed on the flight tomorrow, but thinking about to make my stay longer here in HKG.

Quoting Transpac787 (Reply 4):

as I can see there are a lot of seats available also including with the non-revs, so does it make any difference to be on a higher level of this list? I'm not familiar with United non-rev policies neither flew with them at any time before.

I'm a LH staff. Usually our own staff have the highest standby priority. after that all Star Alliance member staff are following and all other airline staff we accept at last. Is that the same procedure with United?

Thanks very much for your help!!!
