Re: United Fleet, Network, and Discussion Thread - Q2 2021

If there were any planes I would've guess to be leaving the desert last from storage to be returned back to service, it would've been the High-J 767s to be last on the list simply because the nature of current business travel demand. But another bird has left ROW for SFO today and it was N672UA. Al...
