Pre merger UA 772 (A+E) were originaly delivered in 1995-2002. Until year 2000, UA still recived 744s actualy. 22 further (from CO) joined the fleet in 2010.

Not sure if this would be the right thread for my question, but I figure the experts would be in here. What is the reasoning behind UA reducing the seat count from 76 on the E175 to 70 on the E175SC?

Why can't we bolt GE90s on the A380 wings, move the engines forward and upward to maintain ground clearance, and program something that keeps the aircraft more or less stable?

I like your style. A380 Max!
