June schedule is still going through some changes, all updates should be published by next Saturday, April 24.

I had an IAH-NRT direct flight booked for June knowing it was likely this flight would be pulled off the schedule again and changed to IAH-SFO-NRT. This did happen, however during the Wednesday night update, it was automatically changed to IAH-DEN-NRT on UA143. I looked at FR24 and couldn't find any DEN-NRT direct flights going back 3 months, so I'm assuming this has been reinstated for the June schedule, at least for now. Do you have any insight if this will stick through these additional updates, or should I be prepared for another change?

I would be very surprised if DEN-NRT operates in June.

Is EWR traditionally a rolling bank for flights with United or specific banks throughout the day?


I think it is more of a rolling bank, atleast Pre Covid. However I am not 100%sure


It still is pretty unbanked but there is times when more flights are coming and going and some are timed for connections.

EWR-ATH/KEF are already selling for this summer, but I bet they could get another frequency from one of the other hubs. ORD maybe?

Nice to see them painting again. Hopefully they can do some updates along with the paint.

Question. Isn’t N15712 the registration of a TWA Plane that crashed? Think it was a 707 or something.

You’re right: https://aviation-safety.net/database/re ... 19720913-1

if 772 N77014 is leaving ROW for heavy check in HKG...I would think that it would also get Polaris at the same time since that is the las GE 777 without it

No the -224ERs all went to HKG, the -222ERs went to XMN for Polaris/PE.

Very good... there was also an early COVID-era rumor that 014 was a potential lease return, but glad to see that would not appear to be the case if a Polaris mod is forthcoming.

With the issues the PW 772s are having I imagine UA figured better safe than sorry.

I wonder if the PW issue continues would UA try to get compensation from PW and purchase the exDL777s.

77L would still be a new type for UA, so I don’t see that. More likely, IMO is the JL 777 PW engines can be inspected and harvested for “good” fan blades to support what will undoubtedly be a shorter inspection/replacement interval in the future.

This has nothing to do with the new international route that is supposed to be announced today but no less important.

EWR-OGG: This route must be meeting or perhaps exceeding UA's expectation because yesterday UA file a schedule update for this route.

Originally the route was supposed to run only 2.5 months, then last month UA extend the route into September and increased frequency from 4x weekly to 5x weekly. Now yesterday UA decided to make the route year around.

The route will operate 5x weekly beginning June 3rd through September 6th.
1x weekly (Saturday only) September 11th through December 11th.
1x daily December 17th through January 3rd.
1x weekly (Saturday only) January 8th through February 5th.
4x weekly February 17th most likely until Summer 2022 where the flight would probably go back to 5 weekly service.

UA adds IAD>ATH the same week AA cuts PHL>ATH. Seems odd. AA was the one that was going to 100% capacity.

UA also adding ORD>KEF and EWR>DBV

United is adding three new flights to its international network, giving travelers more options for summer travel by flying direct to countries that are starting to reopen to vaccinated visitors. Starting in July, United will offer new direct flights from Newark Liberty International Airport to Dubrovnik, Croatia, from Washington Dulles International Airport to Athens, Greece and from Chicago O'Hare International Airport to Reykjavik, Iceland, all subject to government approval.

United's Travel-Ready Center enables customers to upload their COVID-19 testing and vaccine documentation, and have it certified ahead of check-in so customers can get their boarding pass before getting to the airport. United is the only airline that does this seamlessly in the airline's mobile app.

Perhaps a semi-unrelated question, but as of Apr 19th, I see UA's MAX9's airborne. Is that correct, or are they grounded?
A good landing is one you can walk away from. A great landing is if the aircraft can be flown again.

The other 17 are still on the ground? I thought they were hoping to have that wrapped up in just 2-3 days from initial grounding

I appreciate the efforts by the Tech and planning teams to get people back in the air with new places/return to places.
The United app is light years ahead of the others.
Also, it feels like United is trying hard to appeal to a customer base that doesn’t mind spending a few dollars for a quality product. That’s why they keep mine and my family’s loyalty.

Not sure what UA has disclosed but other carriers have found the grounding issue was in a few different sections of the avionics requiring a little more work (all related to the same process change that prompted the notice from Boeing).

Indeed...they flipped to positive core cash flow in March and that should continue going forward. UA is now setting its sights on getting back to a positive EBITDA margin. They seem to be taking a methodical one step at a time approach to getting back to "normal." UA is doing what is right for UA.

*UA is doing what *UA thinks is right for UA"

They averaged a total cash burn of $27M/day in Q1, unclear what total burn in March was, but it was more than likely not positive.

Yes everyone know core burn removes important cost, United made that extremely clear to employees in mid-March when they announced we had achieved positive core cash burn.

UA's total cash burn $27 million/day however according to their Q1 earnings core burn was $9 million/day in Q1.

We can all read the report, United lays it out there for all to see, although I will concede since Q2 2020 United has not publicly broken down our total burn or core burn on a month by month basis on on a quarterly basis.

Do you have any evidence that you would be willing to share to support the assertions that you've made both in this thread and in the earnings thread that UA did not achieve postive core cash burn, and why UA would lie about achieving this milestone in mid-March?

I'm not coming at you I'm just wondering what UA stands to gain by misleading the public if your assertions are in fact true?

Quick questions about fleet painting into evoblue:
- I assume 752s aren't getting it? (other than the 2 HAH specials which already have it)
- what about 753s?
- what about 764s?
- and finally, what's up with the 788s? I thought one had gone into painting a while ago but i guess not?

It is believed that all the jets will get the new paint. Starting two months ago, they're painting the jets that need new paint the worst. Some of these planes haven't been painted in nearly ten years. As of now, they have one narrow body and one wide body paint line going, both at VCV. We should have a 767-300 coming out of VCV with new paint within the week.

The core burn removes important costs like Capex, Debt Principal Payments, and others


Do you have any evidence that you would be willing to share to support the assertions that you've made both in this thread and in the earnings thread that UA did not achieve postive core cash burn, and why UA would lie about achieving this milestone in mid-March?

I'm not coming at you I'm just wondering what UA stands to gain by misleading the public if your assertions are in fact true?


I was not saying UA did not achieve positive core cash flow, I was saying they likely did not achieve cash flow positivity(inclusive of all necessary costs) in March.

Nobody ever said they did, not even in the original post you quoted. None of the majors are cash flow positive inclusive of all costs.

G4, AS, F9, & SY are cash flow positive, unclear on WN/NK. If you mean US3 then yes, you are correct.

jayunited or anyone else: how many major work groups are there at United? Maintenance, customer service, pilots, FAs, Mileage Plus? Etc

I’m not talking about unions, but corporate divisions. And everyone has their turf, but has Munoz/Kirby brought some harmony into the mix?

With Greece now being open to US tourist, do we think UA might move up EWR/IAD - ATH?

They just announced IAD-ATH, so no.

Just got an update from a coworker with direct knowledge of the PW 777 grounding.

First let me say what was discussed today on the employees earnings live event, in that event employees were informed the PW 777s will be coming back. United has met with Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, the FAA and other agencies and while the work is still ongoing to get those aircraft back into service UA is now able to say the PW 777 fleet will be returning to the skies. The one thing made clear in the event was we don't have a timetable as to when exactly we will return those planes to service. So that is a bit of good news.

Back to the not so public information I received from a coworker concerning a potential timeline for the return of the PW 777s. According to my coworker United will have a vacancy bid and they are looking to fill an additional 50 captain positions on the 777 and 60 first officer positions on the 777s. They were not sure if United is perhaps planning for a fall (2021) return or a winter (2021/2022) return of the PW777. It would seem as though the additional 777 positions are for our SFO and EWR pilot bases.

They also revealed United at some point in the future (perhaps as early as 2022) intends to make the 787 in addition to the 767 the long haul workhorse out of ORD.

there's pretty much the same as it was a decade ago, you still have your standard C level that has multiple divisions below them.

Looks like N19117 will be going to ILN for maintenance from INT on 4/21/21.

This is the first United 757 I remember being serviced by AMES at ILN. ATSG is a 757 operator (although mostly a 767 operator), so AMES routinely works on 757s for ATSG's airline ATI. As you know, AMES has been doing 767 work for UA, DL and UPS; as noted above, N665UA left ILN today after a dual engine change. N19117 will take its place. N649UA has been there since 3/17/21.

Storage Update:
N67134 (Boeing 757-200) is scheduled to ferry from ROW to MCO (UA2723/21) for heavy maintenance before re-entering service.

Rather ancient news.
Pre-pandemic was announced 787 would be based at ORD and 777 base would close. 777 base has remained open only due to current cargo flying, but as the latest pilot bid update states, it will close, just the timing it not certain at moment.

Any info as to when the 16 73-9Maxs might be returning to service? They all still show grounded here and there around the country.

Service Bulletin pending. I don't think FAA is going to rush approval.
