UA 787-10 SFO-FRA

Sat Mar 09, 2019 12:59 pm

I noticed UA is flying the 787-10 between SFO and FRA the past few days, in place of the 77W. Is this a short term equipment sub? Crew training?

Probably a sub, they flew the 787-10 on this route for a week a while back.

Do we really need another thread on this topic? I honestly don't understand why an equipment substitution is such a big deal that it requires its own thread every time someone notices a 78J taking over for a 788/9. For the record the 78J didn't sub for the 77W it subs for the 789 UA926/927 and has done so on multiple occasions since the end of January or the beginning of February. I think the entire thread dedicated to UA807/808, IAD-PEK-IAD demonstrated the potential capabilities of UA's current 78Js. The equipment substitutions are do to 788/9s being out of service on maintenance and UA is either trying to save a flight from cancellation or a from lengthy delay.

In the United fleet and Network thread this post won't get much attention because of someone's brilliant idea to combine the two.

Agreed. In fact, I think there's a United Widebody thread that tracks movements like these? I know there is one for Delta widebodies also.

Having flown a LH B744 from FRA to SFO, I'd love to know the difference in fuel consumption per hour per passenger between this flight and a UA B78J.

It’s done this route on and off, the 787-10 is an extremely capable aircraft, a 10 hour route is nothing for it.
