Why did they go for the A350-1000 at first?
They have been converted to the A350-900
I think the Airbus order was a legacy from Continental. United are Boeing true and true...
The A350 was a United order from the outgoing CEO Glenn Tilton who Engineered the UA/CO merger. We at. United thought it was his Parting Shot because He wanted to replace the B747-422's with the A350, But the Incoming Continental Management could never figure out HOW to cancel the order and NOT pay a huge Penalty. So? They Kicked the can down the Road. United will at some point Have to take delivery of he A350's But When? Who Knows?!?
I suspect when we park all the B777-222's and the older B777-222ER's
