Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

During the conference call today UA reiterated that they are still looking for used aircraft opportunities. We were discussing 777s and Hawaii, would UA be interested in used 777-300s, non ERs. Perhaps half a dozen or so for the Pacific from Hawaii and Guam? That aircraft would be perfect for HNL-G...

78J with 6430NM range, is only 600NM below the 772ER and 500-800NM better than the 763/764/772A. It probably will not be used to Asia.
