United Vs Continental 757

Sun Sep 18, 2011 3:45 pm

Once they start painting the United P.S. 757's with winglets, how would you identify a United 757 from a Continental 757 without looking at the reg? Is there a noticable diffrence?

Well the fastest way is if you can spot whether the said aircraft has the RR RB211 (Continental) or PW2037/2040 (United).

Engine nacelles are quite different.

Presently the UA p.s. fleets say premium service on them. Who knows but I would imagine that they could continue to do that.

UA didn't have any 753s, CO did. They are pretty obvious.

On the RR RB211-535......The -C looks different from the -E4.
