they are moving quick with the Airbus F retrofit. what about the A320's? they are adding an additional 4 seats for a total of 16 seats?

Affirmative. It’s an obvious safe bet that work will follow immediately after the 319 is completed.


I thought the A319/320 were getting modded at the same time?

That's not true. Power is only in F and E+ on the 319, 320, 753, 73G, 738, and some 739s. The 739ERs and all other fleet types have power in E.

That would be nice, but only the 739ERs and 752s have power in Y as well as F and E+.
319/320/73G/738/753 and 739Non-ER (3401-3412) have power in F and E+.
All widebodies have power throughout.

That is certainly a possibility at some point, yes. But as of right now, not so much.

The latest 753 mod also added in-seat power front to tail. All the others are correct though.

That's great. These were reconfigured 11 months or more ago and Flight Status Flight Amenities still show no power behind row 21. Looking at the seat maps in the aircraft section the dots are shown and power is stated as being throughout the aircraft. I hope that's correct.

That is interesting! It doesn’t seem that long ago that the pmUA Airbuses had the grey Y seats changed when they also removed the pmUS F seat (which featured the same seat back design of the old UA recliner in International business class. I find strange that if the post merger United decided to change the pmUA Airbus fleet F seat to the BRAND NEW, WELL DESIGNED F SEAT. But skip adding power to Y when they installed the new Blue leather Y seat

And most ODD decision of all was installing the brand new F seat on the 73G fleet, but NOT replace the 737-800 F seat which everyone knows is the worst domestic F seat in United’s fleet? Does it come down to the size of the 737-800 fleet, which makes changing the F seat too costly?

Based on the last investor call, I wouldn't expect a lot of new routes but I would expect widespread upgauging across the domestic network.

I think the announcement has more to do with new products & service onboard the aircraft beginning in 2020

The Airbus fleet has power through E+, but the outlets are (stupidly) mounted below the seat cushion. Not easy to find for someone unfamiliar with the configuration.

I think this even will focus on UA trying to improve the customer experience, (I think UA private screening is here to stay so don't expect to hear UA saying we are installing PTV's on all narrowbody aircraft just my opinion, the exception could be the 737 MAX10. I would love to see UA reverse course on the MAX9, I don't know if that will happen).

I think UA will use this event to once again tout the CRJ550 and the improvements this fleet type has over many of the older 50 seaters they are replacing. UA is really making a push to appeal to business travelers in smaller cities and towns. For years UA has ignored this market but is now realizing business travelers in smaller cities are part of the keys to DL success in the domestic market. UA is tackling this on 2 fronts upguaging aircraft but also deploying the more comfortable CRJ550. This event may focus on technology and improving technology for both the customer and the employees. This event may cover the investment UA is making into improving our onboard WiFi. Customers have been complaining for years about UA's less than reliable WiFi, UA is starting to make huge investments in improving WiFi systemwide. Personally I think UA will use this even to let customers know they hear them and they are now making the necessary investments in the product to improve the onboard experience both domestically and internationally.

Yeah, today they had a big focus on the CRJ 550, letting people tour a fully furnished one with the new snack bar in action. Tomorrow is when I am hearing all of the big announcements are, it’s supposed to be a big media-focused day with something like 110 news outlets.

Nice features on the new CRJ550, "United plans to take on a fleet of 54 CRJ-550s into 2021, and is targeting an initial 26 markets with the plane, growing over time to as many as 35."

In my opinion the worst thing about the power outlets on UA aircraft between seats is the fact that they are black. It's very hard to see them and then see how to install the plug into a black outlet in an area where there is little light. They should be white.

So far from United’s first media day: United Polaris flyers going from EWR to LHR will be able to have checked bags delivered to five Marriot hotels, aka they don’t need to wait for bags at baggage claim. This will eventually expand to other markets.

Also on United’s website starting tomorrow, at least for the CRJ 550, you will be able to view a 3D view of the interior of your aircraft. It WILL show if the interior is old or new on your aircraft, and you can see stuff like missing windows and what bulkheads look like. The entire fleet and each variant in each sub-fleet will have this feature by the end of the year.

Much more to come in the following hours!

In the event of a airline-caused delay or cancellation that warrants United putting you up in a hotel, being able to choose your hotel and get your voucher through a website (rather than talking to a human) is pretty nice.

@united New York/Newark –> London…1 2 3 4 5 SIX times a day! In March, we’re adding an 8 p.m. departure from EWR, meaning our evening flights will depart every hour, on the hour between 6 and 10 p.m. #UnitedFlightPlan

I wonder where this slot is coming from. (It precedes the Air New Zealand cancellation by 7 months.)

United Airlines introducing "hourly" service between EWR-LHR/DCA and growing DEN

Lots of interesting information to gather with these announcements:
-EWR-DCA will initially be E175s then transition to CRJ550
-LHR slot was acquired from LH
-DCA slots I assume are coming from CLE-DCA

A bit of going back to the future there: in the late 80s/early 90s CO operated both EWR-DCA and EWR-BOS with Shuttle schedules. EWR-DCA was 14x daily in 1994 -- all on mainline, of course.

I'm not sure I see the point, though. Acela from Newark Penn or Metropark is going to be faster in door-to-door time for most folks going between NJ and DC. And running 13x daily on 50-seat CR7s seems like a crappy use of slots.

Makes sense in a transatlantic JV. A widebody transatlantic aircraft probably contributes a lot more revenue/profit than chasing after connections on a narrowbody via FRA/MUC.

:checkmark: MSN is a great example of this. It's a lucrative market where the business travel had been dominated by DL for a long time, but UA is making a real play for business travelers by adding MSN-SFO/LAX, upgauging to more mainline on ORD/DEN flights, and now sending CR5s from ORD (and probably EWR in short order if I had to guess).
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

The guage would be larger if IAD wasn't in the same metro, I assume they would like as much travel as possible to flow through IAD considering how important the hub appears to be for UA's future.

I saw that as well, and was hoping it meant adding the new larger overhead bins through either a Boeing Sky Interior or something to that effect.

That is sorely needed on the UA 737's, especially our -800's!

What’s the difference in number of departures between DEN and IAH? It looks like they’re getting pretty close in terms of number of departures.

The hat trick would be if UA is working something out with NZ about their 'soon-to-be' unused LHR slot from their LAX route next year.

CHICAGO (Reuters) - United Airlines (UAL.O) wants to sunset older Boeing Co (BA.N) 757s “as soon as possible” but the timing will depend on when the Boeing 737 MAX starts flying again, Chief Operating Officer Andrew Nocella told journalists on Friday.

Was there a pre-MAX grounding timetable for 757 retirements put out by united?

I've been saying IAH-GEG needs to happen for years now. And it's time has come!

Also, wouldn't be better to do ORD-Vail in the winter rather than summer? People that ski in Vail are also people that fly to Vail and people that fly United to Vail arent middle class Joe Schmo's neither.
When wasn't America great?

The DEN-LHR winter slot also came from LH. That now makes two LHR slots that UA has gotten via LH.


The hat trick would be if UA is working something out with NZ about their 'soon-to-be' unused LHR slot from their LAX route next year.

FWIW, UAL did announce a 6th EWR-LHR frequency at their "media day" today. I don't know if it involves the NZ slot or something else.

I'm not sure if there was ever a firm timetable, but I believe the plan is for the older P.S.-configured 752s to be replaced by MAX 10s. Given the backlog in MAX deliveries, UA probably won't be receiving MAX 10s on the originally planned schedule now.

Up above in the thread it's stated the slot came from LH. The NZ LHR flight ends 7 months after the new UA flight begins.

Looks like domestic B772 service is being added on ORD/EWR-MCO in March.

ORD-EGE has been winter-only for years. Now, ORD gets a summer flight to EGE for year-round service.

What aircraft will be getting the new interior — bigger bins and power? Will they get the new first class seats?

Denver to Nassau is pretty surprising. I guess it's technically Denver's 2nd Caribbean service, but still pretty exciting.

If I had to guess, it probably won't quite be year-round. Most secondary Colorado destinations have service in peak summer and peak winter, but not necessarily the shoulder seasons when the weather isn't good for either hiking/fishing/ATVing, etc. or skiing/snowboarding/snowshoeing, etc.

United’s Airbus salesperson must be pretty excited. Those A321LRs are looking better every day this MAX issue goes on.
