The job isn't too big for Kirby. People can justifiably criticize his propensity to cut perks and benefits, but his airline management acumen is as good as anyone in the business. Quite a far cry from some of United's management teams over the past few...decades.

Guys like Kirby have been cast adrift from their previous carriers where they were possibly passed over. They're now at United managing like they have a vengeful angel on their back (or a Demon) so they want to put their mark on United to take what they found and make it award winning. I can't blame then as I've read many previous comments that United wouldn't amount to a "Hill of Beans" under ANY Leadership! United has risen faster in performance than at any other time in the last 30 years.
I attribute that to Oscar coming on board because He saw the capabilities of the airline and he saw the needs of the airline. And all at the Same time! He's put us on solid footing with Kirby and it's His Legacy that United is coming to be an airline to be reckoned with. Instead of the "Punching Bag" and "cash cow" of previous management teams.

Seems like everything is more or less "full steam ahead" with regard to mods and repainting so far? I wonder if that will change soon... Delta announced they were suspending mods (which IIRC is mostly just the 764 fleet at the time being) while parking a ton of widebodies.

I also hope the new high-J 763 configuration and the CR5s are still viable in whatever economy emerges from this pandemic. What looked like a great decision to add a bunch more premium seats not very long ago is now looking like potentially poor timing.

There could be a suspension but my understanding is the reason the mods continue is because the money has already been spent, the necessary equipment (minus the aircraft) is already there either at HKG or XMN. Lastly the maintenance companies have already been paid for some of the work. I would imagine that once the current inventory of supplies runs out at XMN and HKG, then UA would most likely suspend the remaining Polaris/PE modifications.

If I had to estimate I would say the 789s are probably done till 2021, the 788s depending on remaining inventory we may get 1 or 2 more frames into XMN then they are probably done till 2021. I believe there is only 1 PW 77E (not including the soon to be domestic conversions) still flying around with IPTE, and 3 or 4 GE 77Es. UA probably will finish the IPTE line by getting the last PW frame into XMN. I believe there are 3 GE frames with diamond seats still flying around, UA might have enough inventory to get 1 maybe 2 of those frames into HKG.

There are seven 763s remaining, they are some of the oldest 763s in our fleet. 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.

Honestly, there's no way anybody knows anything about what the airline industry will look like on May 1 at this point.

Doubt it, maybe a couple routes. They’re cutting 50% for April and May so a lot of the feed wouldn’t be there.

PW 757s will be the first fleet to exit... many older frames, oddball engine, small fleet, and already planned to retire within the next two years.

Expect some of the oldest 763s to go, as well.

I agree this is the end of the PW powered 752s at UA especially with the 737-10s coming online (theoretically) later this year.

So Taiwan is placing California / NYC / Washington states plus most of the rest of Asia under level 3 quarantine now. Means mandatory 14-days quarantine for anyone arriving from these places. I wonder how long the SFO-TPE route can last at this point?

It'll be suspended and resume when Taiwan sees that certain states in the US have contained the virus...

Hopefully Amazon takes a look at them for their fleet since 763s are (were) in demand before all of this.

While United does not plan to suspend service to any single U.S. city now - with the exception of Mammoth Lakes, CA - the airline is closely monitoring demand as well as changes in state and local curfews and government restrictions across the U.S. and will adjust its schedule accordingly throughout the month.

Ironically with the new scheme once again incorporating blue engines, the *A livery is almost the same as it was with the Rising Blue.

Glad to see that it wasn't repainted into a standard livery.

Does anyone have any insight into what is up with this flight?
https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N29968
https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/n29968

UA104 is the regular flight # for SFO-DEL. But this one operated from IAH with a 104D. Weirdly when I checked earlier Flight Aware showed that it was scheduled to operate DEL-EWR and FR24 showed it is scheduled to operate DEL-SFO at the regular time. Initially I thought this might be some capacity adjustment. Now both websites have removed the upcoming flights from their pages.

Apologies if this isn't the right thread for this question.

This is the correct thread for this question another poster brought it up in the COVID-19 thread. Let me start off by saying this was not COVID-19 related.

UA104-16 was enroute SFO-DEL when the left engine PSROV illuminated, this condition prevents operations into icing conditions. with icing conditions being forecasted at SFO, LAX, DEN, ORD, IAD and EWR the only available hub was IAH. Hence the diversion into IAH for UA104-16.

As far as the return there are very strict rules in place covering theater acclimation. Those rules cover mandatory crew rest and how many hours a flight crew can fly once they become acclimated to new theater. As a result UA105-18 will operate over 15.5 hours late and fly DEL-EWR, change crews and customers will clear immigration at EWR, the flight will then continue as a domestic arrival EWR-SFO.

UA105-19 is canceled for crew rest rules as well, and an extra section will be flown on the March 20th. The flight crew of the extra section should be legal to fly DEL-SFO nonstop.

They do have a paint shop there, but I'm guessing it's probably storage. MZJ has almost as many Delta widebodies at ATL today.

Within the next few days all Canadian destinations will be suspended as the border is closing to all non-essential visitors, which mostly means truckers and cross-border workers such as Windsor-Detroit.

Will UA push through with EWR-CPT until the end of season as planned in 2 weeks time, or will it now wrap up a few days earlier?

I have heard that United plans to park 100 to 200 airplanes. Yet, the Company has not said anything publicly.

They announced a massive schedule reduction. I think it stands to reason that an equivalent amount of airplanes will be parked.

They are probably not permanent, but depending on how the situation goes, may become so.
