Help On Intra-Asia UA Aircraft

Mon Apr 16, 2012 3:02 am

Hello

Can anyone shed some light on the 737-800s that UA is using for HKG-SIN and HKG-SGN (any other routes?)? Are these the old Continental Mike aircraft? According to Seat Guru, these planes have PTVs at each seat. But according to my UA reservation for SIN-HKG-SIN, these planes do not have PTVs.

Also, is the crew still SIN-based as used to be the case for the SIN-HKG and SIN-NRT routes before? What about the captain and FO?

Cheers

I've flown this route several times over the past few months. None of the aircraft had PTVs.

I had assumed that all of the crews flying this route were either SIN- or HKG-based. However on my last flight (UA117, 5th April) one of the inflight announcements revealed that the entire crew was actually Guam-based. I'm making this trip again in early May. I'll ask one of the FAs about basing.

Its a Pacific based aircraft that rotates to/from Guam.

Also for the record UA closed for the second time its SIN FA crew base (along with BKK) back in 2008.

For pilots the trip is operated by the GUM base.

Guam-based

Does it mean it also does HKG-GUM?

Me too. SIN-HKG on April 28th and HKG-SIN on May 1st. Wanted something other than the usual SQ 772A or 773A, although I might regret it!
