RE: United/Continental Existing Fleet Upgrade Status 6

Quoting genybustrvlr (Reply 149):
I've never flown CO BF, what improvements do I have to potentially look forward to? Personally, I think UA business is great, although I avoid the 777s with the old seats.

You know? I flew CO BizFirst -- for the first time -- yesterday afternoon on the domestic part of aircraft #125's MIA-EWR-DUB journey (I was 3B).

I actually like the CO seats better than either AC's or UA's business seats.

But in my opinion, AC's voluminous anglophone and francophone AVOD selections trump either CO's or UA's.

when you copy down the livery list, please include the seat upgrade list, it makes it more difficult when you dont.

That'd make sense -- and make F (on the routes/fleets that retain it) the suite product... that would be more in line with the best global products, particularly of *A members like LH and SQ.

Quoting avi8 (Reply 154):

There are really 2 reasons.

First, is the length of time it takes to do the updates:
All of the PMUA aircraft require a full repaint which can take a minimum of 7 days up to 14 for the 747.
A PMCO plane only takes 3 days to re-title, but posts above have it that the remaining PMCO planes need full repaints which is what is slowing down the total completion rate.

Second, is that all of the PMUA repaint lines have shutdown to support the summer schedule. Look at reply 96 above for when they will reopen.

service quality of the United premium products. This leads me to believe the
Business product will be brought up to the BF standard and offered on all
longhaul flights.

where have they exressed any desire for improving IPTE? this has never been discussed in the public sphere.

I really am questioning where this notion that CO is coming in and doing damage control in regards to UA's implied awful IPTE product/experience. how exactly will pmua IPTE C be "upgraded" to CO standards? There is no real difference in soft product - both are marginal at best compared to the worlds best, and both C products are about 90% similar, being the same seat model from the same manufacture. CO has better food, UA has better wines.

I find it especially questionable when the only real decisions implemented regarding Ua's onboard premium experience has been downgrades, not upgrades - provisioning domestic F cabins with no pillows and disasterous gauze blankets - is this an example oof raising the product up to CO standards? Downgrading intl. C meals? Making the PS menu the same iin F and C?

Then you say UAs intl F product is terrible compared to the worlds best (like CO bf is anywhere close to the worlds best C products, right.), and CO is what, going to start throwing away the just installed suites and replacing them with something worthy? Right - the F suite is the best seat of any domestic competitor, including AA's old F product. It compares favorably, hard product wise, with many world competitors, and is the product Ua's customer base is willing to pay for. Have you ever flown in the old or nww F suite, CODC10?

Where the massively invigorated soft product, complements of CO's desires" is beyond me. All the PMUA elite has seen aare downgrades to the premium experience in the last year. And lastly, of course C will be offered on every longhaul widebody (along with F pods/suites on the intl. widebodies, which far outnumber the CO intl. widebody fleet, which is majority 757s...

My experience is that they have improved in recent months.

Quoting KFitz (Reply 156):

Not exactly. They are fundamentally different designs, and although some aspects of the seats look and feel similar, they are far from the same model. B/E Aerospace does not even acknowledge this.

Quoting KFitz (Reply 156):

IIRC, this predated the merger.

Quoting KFitz (Reply 156):

Not sure I ever said "terrible", but the soft product is not at the level of some of its direct competitors. I'm not sure if anyone will tell you that the overall United First product is better than, say, Swiss or Emirates.

Quoting KFitz (Reply 156):
Have you ever flown in the old or nww F suite, CODC10?

On a number of occasions, and if you care to review my posts, you'll find several in which I refer to it as "world class", using those precise words, and for a reason. It is an excellent hard product. It is the soft product which is lacking relative to its competition, and I don't think it is particularly difficult for anyone to acknowledge that it must improve, unless UA is intent on keeping F as the carrot to encourage fare-paid C travel (followed by upgrades with instruments).

Quoting KFitz (Reply 156):
disasterous gauze blankets

They are actually worse than CO's blankets.

Quoting KFitz (Reply 156):
Right - the F suite is the best seat of any domestic competitor, including AA's old F product.

Comparing UA First to that of its moribund domestic competition is hardly an effective use of time.

The Chautauqua operation at CO is being wound down slowly. ERJ's leaving the fleet are going to Frontier Express operations. It's unlikely any of the Chautauqua birds will be retitled 'United Express'.

Are those the retirements on the fleet plan or is it another ERJ operator? Because it can't be Expressjet.

why arent the domestic 763s going to 3 cabin IPTE (if the intention is to convert them to intl config for pmco routes where a widebody is needed) ? I can think of a handful of pmco routes which could/would support F inventory.

united1 and codc10, what's the rational here? And what routes are rumored for these birds? thanks.

Well the first route, IAH-LIM, to see PMUA domestic 763s is IAH-LIM. That route doesn't need three cabin, and I suspect the other routes that the converted domestic PMUA 763s will fly will either be replacing CO 762s or CO 757s both of which are two class Businessfirst routes.

Will these 14 remaining PMUA 767-322ER converting to international format simply incorporate the UA C-class lie-flat units already installed in the 21 763ER's throughout the front cabin? Will they simply extend the C-class units to where F-class are in the converted aircraft?

CO has 757 service in a number of markets that can support the additional capability of the 767-300ER (range, cargo, pax) without necessarily demanding three-cabin service. PMCO is also looking to unload its 767-200ER fleet progressively. The domestic 763ER refits address these needs with existing capacity in the system.

At the same time, several UA longhaul routes probably do not require three-class service (I won't speculate) and once SOC is received, capacity can be adjusted around the system to put FJY airplanes on routes with F demand and allocate JY airplanes to those destinations where it makes more sense.

Exactly. Several of these ships will be part of a Micronesia rotation starting in October.

Actually it sounds like they are going to be using the PMCO lie flats on the the 2 class 763s (764s and 788s as well.) More than likely because they already had those on order for the scrapped 762 reconfiguration...there is allot of lead time for seats.

I don't know exactly...I think someone posted a configuration on here a while ago. 30J class seats in a 2-1-2 configuration I think?????

6 of the -222s are in a two class configuration and they will stay that way and are therefore not included in the list for aircraft to be converted. They currently do a lot of Hawaii flying and will start flying to GUM this fall including NRT-GUM.

They could also use an upgrade of seats especially in First like the 763s are getting.

Got it, thanks for the response. I must say, however, that a route like HNL-GUM, although technically a "domestic" route [Guam is the US after all] is quite a hike, almost 4,000nm. Also, reaching Asian markets like GUM-NRT, etc. may warrant an international format for these 6 777-222A domestics.

Some sort of upgrade, maybe installing more of the those PMCO lie-flat J-class units that were already ordered would be a good idea.

Finally, regarding the 787 orders, will all the aircraft be delivered in the same format, regardless whether they were a UA or CO order? Will Boeing assign the same customer code regardless whether they were a "22" order or a "24" order??

Question: when a PMUA ac like all 747's, 767's and (16) 777's have been refit with new Intl FIRST and Biz, inluding carpet and bulkheads, are the new "carpet and bulkheads" the new PMUA look (silver tophalf and navy blue bottom half with the silver moulding design- or the PMCO carpet and bulkheads which if memory serves is solid one color in a light blue/purplish color with a tiny white texture of wiggly lines? Are they going to choose one bulkhead and carpet for the entire fleet? Or fly with 2 different designs?
(seems to me the silver and navy blue bulkheads would match better the new CO lie flat (diamond?) seats than the light periwinkle blue of PMCO. Any word on that part of unification?

Quoting qfatwa (Reply 180):
N518UA entered paint on 8/4/2011 - [I believe this to be a premium service aircraft]

Indeed it is a P.S. 757, this is the 1st one painted in the new colors.

RE: United/Continental Existing Fleet Upgrade Status 6

Sat Aug 13, 2011 4:21 am

According to this media report, UAL plans to add "From the Flight Deck" or Channel 9, to the Continental Fleet starting in 2012. The plan is to roll it out by fleet-type.

It was confirmed with the reporter who wrote the story, but I have not heard this form any other source. Can anyone else confirm?

Thanks!

If it doesn't make sense, it's probably not true.

First ExpressJet retirements? Are they the ones going in the fleet plan or were most of them Trans States or Chautauqua?

There are currently 8 Colgan Saabs in the old United Express livery. Also, 9L has N420XJ flying around in a solid white paint scheme out of IAD.

As far as rebranding other UA related stuff goes, I saw at the grocery store tonight a Disney on Ice poster featuring the new logo for the United Center.

I then went on their site and sure enough, the globe is out in full force.

I would guess that the signage on the actual stadium is being changed over right now and should be done by the 7th (if it isn't already) which is when that particular Disney show starts. I don't think they have any other events between now and then. I'll be there on the 17th for Hawks training camp and might try to get some pics if no one else is there before then.

Does anyone know about how things are doing for other teams/venues? I would assume they've done everything they need to at Soldier Field by now, but are there any others team that either UA or CO sponsor?

Thanks.

It appears that the conversion process continuous steadily now - possibly because of the experience gained through the already converted a/c.

Any idea which ones are going in next?

Aircraft #528 was our missing 737-800.

" Our newest Boeing 737 will make delivery flight
Posted August 18, 2011

We welcomed the latest addition to our fleet Thursday, a Boeing 737-800 with the new Boeing Sky Interior. This is our last of four Boeing deliveries for 2011, and seventh since the merger closed. We will add another 26 new Boeing airplanes by the end of 2012 as part of our fleet renewal program.

This 160-seat aircraft is equipped with a performance improvement package (PIP) that will reduce fuel burn by up to 2 percent. The plane is also notable in that it rolled off the assembly line more than 10 months ago and was used by Boeing's flight test group to test and validate the PIP package. Fleet VP Ron Baur said we adjusted our delivery schedule so Boeing could use the 737 for PIP testing. "

She does have United livery.
