613 is being decommissioned
708 and 731 are listed as next in line for +ing
437 finally dehailed and sent to VCV, presumably for new paint job.
Had ship 4290 on my gate today.. My first sUA aircraft .. Interesting.

Make one wonder if the stoppage in the remaining 4 735s becoming E+ is because they will be soon decommissioned and not worth the effort.

3731 ferried EWR-MCO this morning - safe to say it's getting E+

763
Either 665UA or 668UA (both showing in SFO) is now ferrying SFO-HNL-HKg flight 6880/22Jun.
Can anyone confirm which aircraft?

739
New delivery 3454 is sked (United.com) on Flight 1731/23Jun LAX-SFO. Not sure how it's getting from MCO to LAX, but it is entering the fleet . Non E+ seat map is shown as expected.

It never showed to be in MCO.. Seems it had it's 'induction' work done at LAX.. Interesting..

The first to be delivered from Boeing with E+ is suppose to be Ship 0456/3456

If you are speaking about the ones with 20F seats they were set up for EWR-West Coast flights. I think there are still 18 of them left in the fleet. They are in the process of reconfiguring them to 16/138...none have DTV just overhead video.

Just in case you missed it these are being transferred to Republic and will still be operated as UAX.

What's the point of doing that though? Any time spent out of service will be temporary, probably no longer than a few weeks. They are not being removed from the fleet and should be counted towards the totals.

Anybody know why only 25.5 % of the Express fleet has been repainted? I think the entire DL Express fleet was repainted within a year. I know Skywest is still flying CRJ's that go back two liveries ago. Does UA not hold their subcontractor's feet to the fire and require them to repaint their aircraft like DL does?

DL does still have a handful of RJs out there in the old livery (or they may have the new colors and nobody's confirmed it yet)...but agreed that they moved quickly on the rebranding process. UA seems to care more about consolidating around the United name (not that dissimilar to what DL with with NW before bothering with planes that already say "Delta" on the side). Of course, that's just my opinion based purely on observation.

At last count a few weeks ago, there were only about 4 or so DL Connection planes left in the wavy gravy livery (2 RP ER4s and 2 or so OO CR2s).

I wouldn't be surprised if the whole DL Connection fleet is in "Onward & Upward" colors by now.

Quoting United1 (Reply 190):
If you are speaking about the ones with 20F seats they were set up for EWR-West Coast flights. I think there are still 18 of them left in the fleet. They are in the process of reconfiguring them to 16/138...none have DTV just overhead video.

Interesting, I was guessing they were a CoMic thing.

I would have thought the EWR transcon's would have been ideal O&D's for the Direct TV product

oh well, thanks for the info!

772 3001 in HKG mod as 3021 exits today (HKG time) with E+. With standard mod time, next one in should be 3003 (117/29), but that's an early estimate.

73G 3706 looks like it had trouble in SNA and cancelled 6/20. Maybe it moved to LAX for MX and maybe E+ while there??

753 3865 was in LAX for almost 3 days and is now flying again, but seat maps do not show E+.

3706 ferried today SNA-IAH Flight 6863/29 Jun. Aircraft is scheduled to fly revenue 6/30. No E+.
3707 is in MCO for E+, no exit flight yet.

3003 is enroute HKG and 3001 to exit 7/1/ HKG time

It looks like the 772 E+ mods may be moving faster. 3003 Flew 117/29 and is sked according to United.com on 116/3. That's one day quicker than the previous several 772s. If this is true and the new norm, there would be a converted aircraft every other day from HKG, and completion then estimated 8/4.

3022, flying 117/1 is now enroute into HKG mod. Estimated out Flight 116/05 Jul.

Still not seeing an exit flight for 3707, 73G in MCo since 6/29 for E+.

I'm due to fly on UA47 on 04-July - which shows up as being operated by Boeing 767-400ER aircraft #3054. Is this on the lie-fly J or still the recliner J?

As always, you'll have to check your flight status at united.com. They list that information on the website.
No one here can predict it for you- Continental (er, United) doesn't dedicate certain aircraft to certain routes, so until you hit the three day barrier, your guess is as good as ours.

I agree, hence I had posted the information around the specific a/c - #3054. The seat maps shows this as the 55" non-lie-flat J seat, but I'm hoping I'm not on the old 764

Can anyone confirm the correct "N" number for UA B787 Line 53 which is ship 904? FAA register shows N20904 reserved by CO(UA) but other sources show N27904. Any UA or Boeing guys out there who knows for certain?

763ER
669UA ferried 7/1 SFO-HNL-HKG.

This places 3 PMUA 763s in HKG 2 class international mod as the earliest I estimate 671UA out is 7/22 and 668UA 7/28 . 7/1 I believe UA started operating 5 more Hawaii round trips with the 753, maybe freeing some 763ER time.

It could be that this third line means the PMCO 764 lie flat mod line may be interrupted to get some of the PMUA birds completed. At this time the 764 line in HKG is just heavy maintenance on Pacific configured aircraft, 3063 should be exiting shortly.

UA's website is accurate with their seat maps per tail number.
HOWEVER, fleet assignments change often before the actual departure, so you can always hope for that!

772 E+ Schedule

3001, 3003, 3002, 3005, 3021 completed

3003 exited HKG 7/3
3022 HKG 7/1 Sked to exit 7/5
3020 HKG 7/3 Should exit 7/7
3017 at this point set up for HKG 7/5 Should exit 7/9

From FlightAware it looks like 3437, hail damaged 739 may have ferried VCV-IAH 6/29 and been replaced at VCV with a 738 IAH-VCV, presumably for paint. 3437 has not departed IAH according to Flight Aware

Paint? What paint? Paint is done..

Okay, so I just made that rumor up, but it can't hurt to try.

There are over 180 738 and 739 PMCO units out there. The retro jet is not in VCV, but I don't have time to check Flight Aware to see which aircraft is/are not active to point out which may be in VCV. Paint jobs are only good for so long and some 738s are 14 years old, which is older than the life of a paint job. More recently, 738s were sent to AMA for UA title changes and were there long enough for full repaints.
What's the deal with the retrojet issue. There are two retrojets flying, the UA stars and bars and the CO Blue skyways. Why should one or both be repainted? If the Blue Skyways should be repainted since CO no long exists, then why not keep the newest Blue tulip paintjob as the UA retojet and repaint the stars and bars??

You've managed to miss my joke ENTIRELY. Congrats; that takes a special talent.
I was suggesting an ADDITIONAL retrojet. In the "Contrails" colors, no less. Though I'd settle for a "Goldenjet".

That is correct. 3855 is a non-ETOPS 753, the first to get DTV. At this point the ETOPS 753s (former ATA) are flying Hawaii big time and about half have E+. We'll see if 3855 gets E+ with this mod visit. If so, maybe other non-ETOPS 753s will get DTV soon. No non-ETOPS 753s have E+ yet.

Will check if E+ is scheduled along with LiveTV. Do not believe it is though.

SEA-NRT-TPE
