I would guess UA might suspend the 763 line at HKG because these 7 remaining frames were originally schedule for retirement. COVID-19 might cause UA to rethink that decision especially seeing that UA expects the fallout from COVID-19 to be felt for months if not a year or more. I don't believe UA will make a decision now about these 7 frames but in the coming months I think these 7 frames might find themselves again on the retirement list especially if the remaining 767 Polaris inventory at HKG can be placed on the 764 fleet.
From what I'm hearing here at Willis is some people don't believe the industry will fully recover from this until 2022 if that is the case I think the 7 oldest 763 will be retired.
One of those seven sent for conversion today, so we're down to 6. I too, would be surprised if all 6 remaining made the conversion, but maybe they already purchased the seats?
Now, the 752 PW's probably have no chance. And perhaps a couple of very early build PMUA HD Domestic 772's.
