Possibilities Of UA 744 Domestic Routes?

Fri Jan 13, 2006 7:35 am

Does anyone know of any possible schedule changes for March/April that would implemant a 747 on domestic routes, specifically ORD-DEN? Thanks and any help is greatly appreciated.

Think that ones pretty well covered by the 777/767. Although I do see the 744 make a guest appearance every so often on the ORD - LAX run. If I'm not mistaken UA's 744 just finished a couple weeks of ORD - LAX runs. Hopefully it will be back soon.

Maybe they will put them back on the ORD-HNL service again.....

Well, I realize it doesn't help you now, but in June 2002 I flew UA 744's DEN-SFO and SFO-DEN. Upgraded on those segments too, my only two flights on a 747 have been upper deck style. Nice!

Good Luck

Well, UA109 ORD-LAX was a 744 . Now it's a 763.Usually DEN gets them for the Winter for skiing . I got to fly on my first 747 on UA July 4th 2004!!
As much as I've loved the 747 since I was 12 , I wouldn't want to be in the seat I was in all the way to SYD. Narrow and hard with a video screen 7 rows away . The 777 home was much nicer!

Maybe not a new market possibility, but currently we have a 744 en-route from IAD to BFI...carrying a certain play-off team.  Smile

DEN currently doesnt get UA 744 service and there's none in the schedules for the future either. That pretty much rules out a 744 from ORD-DEN. Looking at the schedules for March/April (using the Star Alliance Electronic Timetable) there doesnt appear to be any domestic 744s scheduled.

Generally, IAD-LAX-IAD gets a 744 in the summer that rotates between the 744 services to Europe from IAD and the 744 Asia Pacific services from LAX

I could have sworn that I was doing random flight tracking a few weeks ago and came across a UAL 744 on a domestic flight. If my memory serves me correctly, it was inbound to SFO from ORD or DEN. I could be wrong, though.

They have plenty of domestic 777s, however.
