There have been a few 777s doing GUM-HKG, this is probably doing the same for maintenance.

The plane in question is schedule to fly to XMN. So maintenance is the answer. XMN is the main base for TAECO/HAECO.

Not surprising about the timing given the slack in plane due to the mainland China/HK cuts.

Guess they wanted to pick up a set of crew, fly the plane to XMN and back on another with the same set?

90% of the time an Engineering crew flies the airplanes into and out of overhauls and heavy checks. so they may well be time limited. or? the line crews may be flying the airplane to GUM and an engineering crew flying it to XMN.

As mentioned before I think this is all about not having to layover crews in China at the moment

Staging out of Gum allows for a return flight on the same day
The best contribution to safety is a competent Pilot.

This is has been discussed on the UA fleet thread.
This point is what has been stated by UA insiders, all crew rotations go through GUM. It makes for more complicated routings, but for the health and safety of the UA employees this is a good option to still allow maintenance/conversions to happen.

You have it backwards. 90% of the time line pilots fly the ferry trips in and out of heavy MX in places like HKG, XMN. Under certain circumstances will tech ops pilots do it. I’ve seen them do the MX verification flights and then continue on to the ferry trip.

GUM becoming staging area for China mod/maint units

772:
N221UA sked to enter GUM 2751/28Feb, probably to replace N222UA domestic mod when ready
N798UA entered GUM 2/21/20, might be positioning for XMN maint (Polaris unit), best guess would be maint after 77W N2737U exits HKG
N77022 entered GUM 2/27/20, probably positioning for replace N74007 when ready

788:
N26909 sked to exit XMN 2691/28Feb with Polaris/PP

789:
N15969 entered GUM 2/25, probably to replace 788 N26909 in mod - thought 788s would go through mod first?

Can anyone confirm the following?:
N26960 in EvoBlu or was VCV visit for touch up
N77006, exited VCV paint, should be in EvoBlu, is she still named Robert F. Six?

Hard to judge, but looks like the Robert F. Six titles are there in lieu of the ”Connecting People. Uniting the World” titles.

I was able to get a closer look and yes, you are absolutely correct. Mr.Six is still there. :bigthumbsup:

N15969 is the last 789 schedule to enter XMN until July 2020. From March to July UA will focus on the 788s.


Also N29977 was flown to ORD today as UA2707 for induction. Let us all hope ORD does not put another brand new 789 out of service.

Speaking of ORD and 787s its been a tough week for ORD maintenance they finally put N12012 into revenue service this morning after multiple attempts earlier this week resulted in last minute plane changes and a lot of disappointed customers.

Is the coach bulkhead on the A319 a hard plastic to the floor bulkhead or is it a soft partial bulkhead that allows carry on bags to be stored under the first class seat in front? Thanks in advance for any info.

A few airplanes over the years... none of which remain in the fleet.

Bob Six certainly deserves recognition as strongly relevant to the history of this airline... as does Gordon Bethune (Kellner, not so much). But if the company had an airplane named after Sam Ashmore until recently, there’s really no excuse for not having one named after the central figure of the formative years of United Air Lines.

I expect we’ll see an Oscar Munoz in a few years. He really turned the airline around.

Other news that hasn't been discussed in great detail on this site is UA ending their 40 year partnership with the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee.

This story is posted on Flying Together (FT) in which gave employees some details but the LA Times seems to have gotten more details that UA left out on Flying Together.

UA on FT stated the USOPC wanted UA to pay multiple times more than the amount UA currently pays as the official sponsor. According to UA on FT the new official airline agreed to a multi-year deal where they will pay the USOPC $50 million dollars per year. UA would not disclose how much we currently pay the USOPC per year, however this is where the LA Times picks up the story.

The LA Times is reporting that starting in 2021 the new airline sponsor will be DL and they have agreed to a 8 year deal that covers the 2028 Olympics in LA. The LA Times states DL has not publicly confirmed they are the new sponsor but the new sponsor did agree to a $400 million dollar deal which comes out to $50 million dollar per year since the contract runs through the 2028 Olympics.

However where things get a bit interesting is here UA would not disclose what we are currently paying the USOPC on FT, but the LA Times is reporting UA has been paying the USOPC $4 million dollars annually to be the official sponsor. Also according to the LA Times the reason for the jump from $4 million to $50 million per year is because it will cost LA an estimated $7 billion to host the Olympics and they are looking for sponsors to help defer the cost so LA County tax payers don't have to foot the bill.

https://www.latimes.com/sports/story/20 ... or-sponsor

Congratulations to DL I know the LA market is extremely important to them as it is to UA, but at the reported price of $400 million for 8 years I now understand why UA walked away from a 40 year relationship with the USOPC.

No, that is not it. He started the thread (it was titled United trasnpac cuts" or similar and I saw it this morning and posted a comment in it at 9am ET.
It basically called out all of the changes listed in this thread but was sooner. Now under the new rules, it probably should have been posted here, but then it should have merged into this thread.

The thread I posted is where that information belongs, but things specifically affecting United can be discussed here as well. Either way, it's being discussed in two places.

N77006 was painted on the new livery. I saw her at EWR yesterday 2/28. Thankfully they also re-painted her with the Robert Six name in the new blue. Looks gorgeous!

Pretty impressed with how quick they are ramping up the CR5 fleet.

That’s too bad about the Olympic sponsorship, though at the same time, the Olympics are a scam that probably wouldn’t have been worth spending all that extra money on.

In the same vein, I wish United had some smaller but important partnerships. I don’t know why they don’t sponsor the SF Chinese New Year Parade (WN does oddly enough), Alaska sponsors the SF Giants and SF Pride, and Frontier is still the Colorado Rockies sponsor.

Agreed. It would be nice to see more external engagement of the United brand.

They do a fair amount of smaller partnerships in addition to the national ones:

This isn't a complete list as I've seen UA sponsoring the SF Gay Mens Chorus and the Rock and Roll Marathon here in the Bay.
I know the voices in my head aren't real but sometimes their ideas are just awesome!!!

All 25 ExpressJet 175SCs will transfer to Skywest over the next 15 months

E145XR:
TransStates Airlines will dissolve by the end of 2020. All 36 XRs will be transferred to ExpressJet

I think that’s where most, if not all, of the 145XRs came from... All those EV pilots who just moved to the 175 now have to go back.... :hissyfit: :hissyfit: :banghead:


It is. Prior to UA shifting XRs to TransStates, EV was the only operator of the subtype.

I wish they had gotten a full refit in Y and it was disappointing they didn’t, but part of the reason why the 763 and 744 didn’t get an overhaul to redo the Y section was because they didn’t intend on flying them this long. And yes, they had to be picky at the time on where they spent some capital. Thats why the 777’s got nose to tail refits, since they were part of the long term plan and quite young at the time. The 25 788’s they ordered in 2009 were to replace the 21 international 763’s and the 25 A350s was to replace the 744. They weren’t interested in the 773 and wanted the next gen engine tech beyond that. Nobody could’ve seen them operating the older 767s today. I’m glad they’re still going but that wasn’t the intent back in 2009 when they ordered new aircraft.


Covid-19 will clean out the 763's shortly.

How when no UA 763s go tpac...


Covid-19 is not limited to TPAC/Asia anymore. This virus is world-wide so the challenge for UA and other carriers is to boost capacity where demand dictates with the wide bodies now idled by decreasing long haul demand. The Cancun and Phoenix adds are an example. I'd expect to see some adds for California, Florida and possibly larger gauge to Hawaii depending on logistics at the outstation.

I understand why UA would walk away from their Olympic’s “official airline” program, that is a ton of money that can be spent on a good number of other under funded good organizations. I have friends who work tirelessly for nonprofit organizations that do wonderful things, but are limited due to lack of capital.
It would be great to see UA help veterans in big way. Doctors Without Borders, and create special liveries!
Since I live in NYC, and live 3 blocks from The Stonewall, I see what UA has done there that is meaningful and much appreciated in the community. I'm unsure what would the BEST other ”good deed/give back” community initiatives they could do here? But, although NYC is so dominated by the rich today (compared to my childhood) I don't know which organization would give them the best ”do good” and be visible.
United’s massive advertising in Manhattan, is unavoidable...and I don't know if there is anything significant in the way of future, fast mass transit in the works?
I've always wondered if a United ferry boat could get close enough to EWR?

Quick United EWR TC report: This past week I went into one of the brand new refurbished men’s rooms. Everything has been redesigned from floor to ceiling. I must say, who ever UA hired to re-do the concourse restrooms has fabulous taste. The new tiles, floors, sinks and mirrors and even the toilet stalls are really upscale and beautiful. I suspect the blue and taupe glass tiles that have waves of different colored curved lines must have been expensive. Aside from the United Club conundrum, the public restrooms were the final frontier for TC and the designer is welcome to refurb my bathroom at home! (however UA has yet to realize they have HVAC issues worldwide...1 person can turn a whole section into a gas chamber!)

Flew in a CRJ today for the first time in a while. Man, what a lousy experience. Its embarrassing.

They are fine for short hops but pretty subpar for anything over 45 mins. I hope UA can put the CR5 to work on hops such as OKC-DEN. United has really given up in that market. Pretty much all 50 seaters now. I remember when it was 2-3 mainline plus 2-3 CR7's. I even remember a 757 in the summer months. This wasnt that long ago.
