Can anyone confirm plane 2131 (N2331U) is in SFO for the PP retrofit. Is SFOMX doing the retrofit?


The plane was in for STC work. I can't find what kind of work was performed. UA media production was doing some work in the plane as well.

I don't think we will see a logo change until 2020. 2020 is when we all get new uniforms.
