United 767 Domestic Routes

Wed May 11, 2011 12:00 am

Where do United currently operate their 763s on domestic flights?

How many aircraft in the fleet are actually in the domestic configuration?

ORD-DEN-ORD sees alot of widebodies (763s and 772s)
It's a cultural thing.

I believe this thread should stay in the "Civil Aviation" forum where literally every other route/aircraft config thread I've made has stayed. Nothing in this thread has anything to do with "preferences" or "polls"

Quoting Jackbr (Thread starter):

The 3-class aircraft are used primarily for International flights out of ORD and IAD. They can sometimes be found on domestic re-positioning runs between ORD-IAD.

The 2-class aircraft are primarily used for SFO/LAX/DEN-HNL routes. The 2-class also operates regularly SFO-IAH-LIM-IAH-SFO. Most of the 763's assigned to hub-to-hub routes are 2-class aircraft.

PMUA has 14 763's in the 2-class domestic configuration.

They now fly a B763 on a SFO-IAH route that continues on to LIM, then returns to IAH-SFO in the morning.

Is there ever any 763 presence in JFK or LAS?

JFK is exclusively all-757 (P.S.)

But once in a while they use a 763 as a replacement.

Do the 3 class aircraft ever appear on domestic routes as equipment subs?

The 763 subbed for JFK is definitely a 3-Class A/C. Also, this summer the 3-Class 763 flies between ORD and DEN (usually in the early morning, 7 or 8)

All the routes I listed earlier in the threat are 767 routes. Some of those are flown on 67I aircraft. I do know that you wont see a 67I on Hawaii flights.

Yes 3 class airplanes do sub on domestic routes. For example, there are no spare 2-class 777s. If one goes tech or gets extended maintenance, the only plane UA can sub is a 747, so you will sometimes see SFO-HNL being operated with 747s.

Out of the UA fleet, the most spares are with the Airbus fleet. I believe there are 6 spare Airbus narrowbodies in the network on an average day (compared with 4 spare 757s), so adding segments with them is the easiest.

If a PS airplane needs to be subbed out the preference is to use a 3 class 767. The configuration goes from 12-26-72 to 6-26-151, so there are a lot of extra economy seats. F is rarely full, so usually there are not downgrades. However the summer schedule only has 1 spare 3-class 767 our of the 21 3-class 767s, so the chances of that happening are low.

PS planes will occasionally be seen swapping for A319s on LAX-SFO routes.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I've been on a 57P (PS) from IAD-ORD and from ORD-SFO. It was nice. 3J for both flights!

No. Only the international 767s have PTVs. They have them in all classes with the full AVOD system and new first and business seats.

Great.

The 763s that are used on the LAX-HNL are considered as international or Domestic?
What about their 777s? Do they all have AVOD?
