Re: United Airlines Network Thread 2018

If you read the thepointsguy.com article, he states that UA will have 6 TATL routes from EWR on the 787, not the 78J. That could mean 788/789's as he notes. I bet UA is playing it safe after the 77W delays. With only 14 officially on order, and 9 being delivered by April or so, that only leaves 5 m...

Here's a historic listing of all United 747 routes, EWR-NRT was served with a 74SP, 742 and 744. You can see UA also operated the 74SP, 742 and 744 on EWR-LHR.
