Help With United Tail Number

Sun Apr 17, 2016 3:02 pm

Hi all,

I am trying to find the registration of a United aircraft I was on yesterday (ORD-SEA). Ultimately I want to know whether it was a 737-900 or -900ER.

The number as listed on United's flight status was #3404. After googling I and searing in the A.net database I cannot find any information on the registration. Thank you!

Your flight was operated by N32404, which is non-ER 739.

You can always search on flightradar24.com if your flight was in the last 7 days.  
Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!

3401-3412 are slick 900s (non ER models)
3413 and above are ER
38## 739s are also ER

Thanks for all the help!

The aircraft was showing some age so not totally surprised it was a non-ER. The takeoff roll also felt veeeeery long (full passenger load).

Quoting Boeing744 (Reply 4):

No problem!

I found the tail number to your aircraft by:
1) Finding the flight number from united.com
2) Finding the tail number using the UA flight number on flightradar24.com
3) Determining ER vs non-ER model using existing photos of the tail number in the AN database.

As SRQKEF has already mentioned, if you know the flight number you can go straight to flightradar24.com to get the tail number of flights completed in the last week for most airlines.

Hello,

Hopefully this will help you in the future when searching for UA tail #'s, or for UA aircraft information in general. Bless the people/person who came up with this and keep it updated.
