There are very few spare aircraft around the United system. At this exact moment in time, there are 9 spares. Another observation I am making is that UA is clever for putting three spares each at SFO and EWR, since former is prone to flow-control and the latter is prone to delays in general. It see...Jump to post

Wouldn't that A320 with the -232 code be a Delta bird? Just kidding of course...
My wildly early (but in good fun) assessment is that there was an un-contained blade(s) failure which, when it exited the cowling, it caused enough of the cowling to twist into the airstream. Subsequently, this caused the cowling to further get pulled into the airstream until the entire cowling cam...Jump to post

IAD and not SEA... interesting change. Didn’t think IAD would be equipped for introduction work.
752: N597UA entered SAT 2824/13Nov, unknow work Regarding the SAT work, it appears ST Aerospace/VT San Antonio Aerospace Inc. is doing work that is unconfirmed as to the extent. All on sCO and sUA 752s and the 753. Scimitars or regular checks? There are currently 3 aircrafts in San Antonio: 0141 - ...Jump to post

747-400 N118UA SFO-HNL, 10/7, Flight# 0747, 11:00-14:45 HNL-SFO, 10/8, Flight# 2796, 08:00-14:55 I assume you mean the flights are on Nov 7th and Nov 8th? Sorry, my mistake. Here is an updated routing N118UA (8418) SFO-HNL, 11/7, Flight# 0747, 11:00-14:45 HNL-SFO, 11/8, Flight# 2796, 08:00-14:55 SF...Jump to post
N118UA, ICN-SFO, 10/28
N121UA, ICN_SFO, 10/29
There is no further routing information for these two airplanes. I suspect one will be the primary aircraft for the SFO-HNL flight while the other will act as the backup in case the primary takes a sh*t at the gate.
747-400 N121UA had its "United" title covered over. In its place, a large decal with the words "United 747 Friend Ship" and four blue stars (70's livery). N119UA will receive the same decal. The plane looks really weird because it still has the globe on the tail, white and grey p...Jump to post
N26970 This one was delivered a month ago and has yet to fly a single paying passenger. Today it ferried SEAPAE UA2777 19Sep. Something’s afoot

N644UA was doing EWR LHR turns.... now It's EWR HAM for the next few days.
N26970 still at SEA... whatever the mods/fixes they seem to be taking quite awhile.
789 N26970 has been in SEA for two weeks now. Induction was done in DEN before going north. Any info on what's going on with it? Airplane was supposed to leave SEA on the 7th, but they found something in the cabin that was installed in the wrong location. There is no routing for the plane at this t...Jump to post
