I honestly don't know if the flag pole will make a reappearance on top of the new gate 17 jetbridge. It makes sense to take it down in a ceremonial way as A1 is going to be demolished in order to finish the new building. There will be a "permanent" memorial at historic building 1 which wil...Jump to post
Actually I believe it's 12 of 40 completed with the new 116/160 configuration on 752. Of those 9 are flying, so today flying units are 9 new config of 17 in service. 2 16/160 units still in ROW and 1 in RTS maint. at GSO. 3 old config units should return soon from RTS maint and paint. Hopefully the...Jump to post

Aircraft #0127 DID NOT go to paint on Aug. 2nd as originally scheduled. Any reason why? Currently doing a bunch of transcon routes.Jump to post
Is United going back to using terminal A at Newark. I was checking in for my flight tomorrow, Aug 1st, and it’s scheduled to leave from Gate A28 (UA 4396). I looked at some other express flights that came to mind and they all seem to be leaving from terminal A. Yes Wonder if this will help in easin...Jump to post
Correct. Third 757 to be repainted and first to be in the regular Evo-blue. 753 and 764 are the last remaining fleets with nothing in the new scheme. Don’t believe any of the 788’s have been painted yet either. Could be wrong though. Yup, you're right. Mainline: non-ER 739, 753, 764, 788. Express: ...Jump to post
Aircraft #0127 finally scheduled to go in for new paint as flight 2746 IAH-AMA August 2nd. She desperately needed a new paint job. Awesome.

Aircraft #0127 finally scheduled to go in for new paint as flight 2746 IAH-AMA August 2nd. She desperately needed a new paint job. FINALLY!!! Makes sense though as I think they will finally have some slack in that fleet. #0102 (Her Art NY) returned to service around two weeks ago and #0101 should b...Jump to post
UA has access to gate space at TPA, MCO and RSW that can support more flying than they are doing at the moment. Certainly nothing on the scale of a hub, but additional flying within the existing footprint of gates, fleet and employees is probably what United is envisioning. ... MCO will have a lot ...Jump to post
3127 might have more surface area *without* paint than with, at least on the starboard side! Some of the 777s are looking a little ragged, too. 3127 is N48127 Here is a photo from 7 months ago (Dec 2020). 6297699 In 7 months, it’s gotten much worse. I’ve seen it at EWR a few times lately, including...Jump to post
Looks like UA is trying to get the 752 fleet back in service with 4 currently in maintenance after being parked. Is there any word of being able to get enough back online so they can start cycling some through the paint shop? 3127 might be the worst I have seen in a while.Jump to post
Hello everyone, I've been pretty quiet on the forums for the past year plus given my career on the frontlines of the pandemic... I have been out spotting mostly for my own enjoyment and don't really end up editing and uploading as much as I would like to. However, with that said I have been noticing...Jump to post
Or perhaps they can hold off demolishing existing Terminal A. It doesn't seem like the old terminal is in the way of the new terminal as far as construction goes (I could be wrong) but B6 seems to made itself a nice home there in the meantime. Sort of like how UA used to exist back in the 90s befor...Jump to post
The new terminal wants to be all mainline, I thought this was just a UA thing? AC will be an issue then. Rumor has it all mainline narrowbody gates for the new terminal. Latest talk about the new terminal is no ADGii gates for new T.A. YYZ is seeing mainline flights. June schedule has right now 1 m...Jump to post
F9 news is per multiple F9 employees both at the airport and inflight who I spoke with. Spent a bit of time over the past few weeks flying and I primarily flew them. Load factors well over 90% on all my flights. I know F9 has not been the best in the past in really staying put but with their project...Jump to post
AC is now mostly mainline on the BCS3 to YYZ with Montreal still showing up a lot as a Jazz mixture. F9 plans to restart growth at EWR in the next year or so. Their plans are to look at EWR growth after finishing up ATL and TPA. Two gates for them is not going to be enough. Their load factors are de...Jump to post
I don't see UA really taking 20 of the 33 gates at the new terminal. Can't leave 12 gates for AA, DL, AC, B6.. AC needs 2 maybe 3. DL needs probably 3. B6 is not going to be happy with 3-4 gates in the new terminal. I don't see B6 wanting to operate out of multiple areas like they are right now. B6 ...Jump to post
Odd question: What is the protocol for FA's and/or medical personnel on board (Passengers who are doctors/nurses/ect) which regards to landing if they are treating someone with a medical condition?

Although no final decision has been made yet I'm hear there is a strong possibility the entire GE 77E fleet will be reactivated. Not hearing anything no rumors at all about the 764s but I'll keep my ears open. That makes the most sense. Reactivating the 764s to cover the 777s going OOS would result...Jump to post
Wouldn't the better option to bring more GE 772s online vs 764s if the lift from those frames is needed; especially considering the number of pilots affected?Jump to post
Great, thx for info team. I guess this is part of the beauty of having a 13,000 ft runway (28R). Are there any other similar setups at any other US airports, i.e. where departing flights launch from somewhere other than a threshold? I've been flying for years and I've never seen it. Denver maybe? M...Jump to post
I know paint lines have basically been dead since the pandemic began, but one has to assume something has to start up again.
Has anyone seen 791ua recently? Poor plane has more bare skin showing than painted skin at this point. Likely one of the worst I have seen in many years.
So far seems really interesting: UPS doesn't appear to be taking on as much early on. Remember last year having 2 Western Global's at EWR every day along with the Atlas 747. Makes me wonder if the enlarged fleet (about 7 767s and 5 748s) when compared to last year will limit what is seen. Assuming t...Jump to post

Fair point re the soft nose, Jehan, but what would have happened had the nose area been sufficiently sharp, given that the sky in Royal's photo is no more distracting than in Andrew's latest beach shots?

10, 11, 12 still have some seating, not nearly as much as when WN was at 10 and AC in 11 and 12, but there is at least something there. No more workstations for the gate agent at any of those three gates. They've seen their final aircraft operations. Had no idea B6 used A15 at all... can it be while...Jump to post
Delta is sharing B1 with NK right now. I do think NK on B1 has allowed them to grow nicely as they have a bit more space in that WN area. I'll be back in A1 on Friday when I return from my quick trip. Trying out F9 for the first time tomorrow; will be my first trip on them and my first trip through ...Jump to post
Air canada did take over the A14 and A15. Flew in on 11/16 to see their signage etc. Rumor has it b6 will get a fifth gate at EWR which they could definitely utilize. They do a lot of shuffling with their operation on the current four gate setup. Add in one weather delay or mechanical delay and it h...Jump to post
Any idea on what the gate lease situation look like for Terminal 1? While I personally like to see B6 get as many gates as possible, I really just want to see any other domestic carriers that care to expand (like NK or F9) get sufficient gates for expansion. I hate EWR being such a captive market. ...Jump to post
SFO gets everything but the 764 just a bit more variety than EWR. What route does the 763 fly on to SFO? Or the 737-700? I was going to say, SFO doesnt get the the 763 or 764 anymore. No 737-700 either. I think SFO and EWR are the only 2 airports that see the most varients. EWR right now does not g...Jump to post

Any additional updates on the stranded planes. Seems like the 320s make sense at Spirit. Makes me wonder if Delta or Frontier will want to jump on any and if Air Canada is interested in picking up a few more for their update or expand321 fleet.
TF-CAT still at EWR.
I'm really interested to see how quickly they will be cycling through the pain shop for the new livery. In spotting at EWR lately there seems that there are a lot of overdue aircraft. N210UA, N36272, N39297, N17104 all have a lot of peeling going on right now.Jump to post
How much slack is there in the widebody fleet next summer? There is some slack in certain fleets. It also depends on how many 767s and 777s will be out of action for Polaris mods.
