Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

I thought maybe an increase in 78X weight would require a third set of back wheels, but the 359 has nearly 50,000 more lbs with the same 8 wheels under the wings. The 78X has the same TOW weight as the 789, is 14,000 lbs heavier and in UA config a full load has about 12,000 more pax weight. You'd ne...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

It would seem to me that the increase in 789 stage length by software would mimimize need for the 359. The 359 has a 8100nm range vs. 7635 for the 789 and only 6430 for the 78X. If the range is extended by maybe 5% the questions would be: How many flights about 8000nm are in need of the extra capaci...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

If indeed the 2 789s in XMN are in for Polaris mod it would seem to be a shift in priorities probably to set up these ULH routes.
The push for Polaris when the pandemic hit was 788s, undoubtedly due to the large difference in Polaris/Y seat mix between configurations and probable shift in missions.

fun2fly: Since the 787 fleet is pretty much full bore on longer cargo trips, the 772A units provide lots of seats and is lighter than the 772E.

That makes sense, but for what its worth, A/C 913 exited paint 4/18/20, and looks to have been stored in IAD for a month. A/C 913 surely didn't get a heavy check before exiting IAD 5/18/20 - she's been been flying occasionally since. Maybe it's running out of time and needs to have a heavy check soon.

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

I believe the 739non-ERs have been scheduled successfully in and out of IAH for a couple years or more as stage lengths are not an issue. If UA is grounding aircraft these should be brought back last, but they are capable units that should be saving UA about $50 on landing fees per arrival vs. the ER.

I see this percentage in service (flying today or scheduled tomorrow) Narrowbodies (overall 13.8% in service, 370 of 572 [64.6%] stor...

Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

Due to high and hot, isn't tire speed the issue with JNB departures? I wonder how the 789 does vs. the 77L in this factor? I wonder if LH pullback will put more UA metal on FRA and MUC flights? Maybe when things come back, there would be an opportunity to add more Germany smaller markets from EWR, e...
