That is a very selective statement, for years all UA sent to India was their oldest 772s. Till the 77Ws arrived, those were literally the only aircraft they could operate with the demand that was there on both the routes. As soon as the 77Ws were available on a sufficient scale, they moved the long...Jump to post
Well, hurricane Laura has passed and KIAH got not one drop of rain nor any winds which is always a good thing. I pray for Louisiana though as they were a smack direct hit. As far as aircraft movement due to Laura at IAH, Tech ops got all the 777s that were stored in IAH since March airworthiness aga...Jump to post
Looks like ROW will start seeing some more 772s arriving the next days. N225UA, N77006 & N77014 slated for ROW for storage. All were in long term parking. N77014 is the very last CO 777 with old diamond seats and if i recall is a leased plane. Think she will be retired?Jump to post
Thanks for the replies guys! Seems like they're flying the old config on the IAH-ORD legs which doesn't have those rest seats. Still researching All of the aircraft in this configuration are currently stored, and have been since late March. When they'll return to storage and where they'll operate i...Jump to post
Looks like 958 is acting up again with the same indications.

Today's UA 2374 EWR - SFO was on the 76L. Other flights on a 752, 753 and 788. Interesting times for sure. Wouldn't mind the 76L cross-country! Increasing J demand? Definitely not, only 7 passengers booked in business with 4 being upgrades. It was probably a NOC request to "get the plane flyin...Jump to post

Latest updates indicate P&Ws 757s (ex p.s.) are all retired. Sub-CO 752s/753s will be brought back. I've seen a few 752s and 753s running around IAH recently. 764s listed as "in storage" compared to retired as previously announced in an email from 2 weeks ago. 739s (3401-3412) listed a...Jump to post

Since I have read quite a bit now regarding UA’s 763’s, here and elsewhere, not one thing I have read mentions in particular the High-J 763’s? Before COVID-19 I thought those High-J 763’s were fabulous and I loved flying them in Polaris. It really did feel like UA had something great going between ...Jump to post
Are you talking only mainline or Express as well and is the 43 UA only? I assume that includes aircraft on gates. Looking at DEN, there are 4 788s on the ground and all the rest are narrowbodies that aren't departing today. Interesting that about 10 of the 16 or 17 narrowbodies have upcoming flight...Jump to post

The disappearance of the lighted up "Polaris" plaque in the business class cabin and at the boarding door shows me United is already watering down the Hard product of this awesome seat. The lighted up Polaris Plaque is on the Low-J 767s and some of the earlier 77Ws. But the retrofitted 772...Jump to post

77W carry's a lot more cargo vs the 744. The 77W is an overflow for LAX cargo that bulked out, so its trucked down here. IDK if a 2nd SAN-London would be wise. That 11am SAN-ATL is DL's most important/lucrative flight out of SAN. It should, at minimum, be a 753 as it's the gateway to all transatlant...Jump to post
Montgomery Executive Airport (MYF) has three runways. A 4 gate terminal can be built there allowing Allegiant, Jetblue, and Sun Country to shift all flights there. This will alllow for a smoother operation at SAN. Runway 10L is 4598 ft long. This should be long enough for an A320 to depart to BOS. ...Jump to post

Speaking of the DirecTV announcement, I flew on N76523 sunday, a 737-800 with DTV still installed and the TVs were turned off the whole flight and the aircraft had Personal Device Entertainment. It seems UA may be keeping the TV's installed and just adding PDE.Jump to post
So SAN powers turned down WN request to take over the majority of the T1E Gates in favor of relocating others to T1E.

United got in those cheeky jabs early with SFO and LAX flights, but Singapore Air is having the last laugh, they got the US on lock going to Singapore. Riiiiiight...

As a network discussion topic, I would like to know UA's strategy with placing 752's on a lot of transcon routes this year out of EWR/IAD. Specifically stations like PHX/SEA/SAN/LAS-EWR/IAD. I wonder if this will stay year round to maybe compete with jetBlue Mint.Jump to post

I’m going away for a while. Going to give that island life a try. I look forward to returning to a more mature SAN sometime in the future.
Gate 46 and 47 will be the first gates in San Diego to have hydra fuel lines installed under the gates eliminating fuel trucks. Finally, our airport is becoming modern and standard.

Interesting development with UA here. Another topic in this forum on UA flight attendant bases has UA establishing one here. Wonder if that means increased presence for UA at SAN? Hope so!

Last night I was on a UA 772 from EWR to BRU. I was in Polaris and not the new seats. But, the aircraft inside was almost like new.

What about Delta on CDG or AMS? Very good question!

Hey red' , thanks as always for the great pix of the latest at SAN. I've got a couple of questions.

As a UA MP, this is great news on upgrade to IAW/EWR. The flatbeds and more capacity to east coast is long overdue. Most of UA's 737's outta SAN are sold out and cramped at times.
