Is it me or has United always been clawing through PR and customer service disasters? Even in the 90's weren't they known for having busted interiors and generally awful operations compared with the other legacy players. Am I way off base? If not, what's the deal with that? How can a company cultur...Jump to post
I hope so! I love the 763 (I don’t care how old the design is). For me it’s the Goldie Locks “just right” airplane. And with new interiors I’d defy any average person to guess her age! The three HA ones were built in 2002-03 - on par with their newest original A320's, and in the middle of the 772ER...Jump to post
There are several of the of exCO 757s that are showing lots of wear and tear in the cabin and are showing their age. The seats in the ps 757s are newer and the IFE has newer software or operating system since they tend to work slightly better/faster.Jump to post
given the age of the plane, I'm wondering is this engine still in production? If not would they replace both engines with new versions? UA has spare engines but yes, Pratt is still making the PW4000s. PW is currently scrapping a number of Vietnam 77Es for their engines. That doesn’t mean they aren’...Jump to post
Looks great. Hope they last for a loooong time.Jump to post
2) There was an even longer discussion that UA would order new 763's. Is that dead? UA is indeed interested in adding a few 763s to its fleet but those will come in the form of HA's 763s which are due for retirement this year. They are young frames, in good shape and satisfy UA's requirements. That...Jump to post

I guess you don't remember this:
I always associated Alaska with the MD-80's.
I wonder if Airbus killing the 380 means the 747 gets thrown a lifeline.Jump to post

Which are the A319s, and which are the A320s?
If UA does order I hope they go for PW. They’ve been doing PIPs for the tankers too.Jump to post

Time to publish a list of those planes which are gone, gone soon or which are having little chance to fly again . Sorta odd really. Most such threads on older models, seem to focus on those that are still flying.... EI-UNY (Transaero) was formerly N767UA, one of the earliest deliveries to United 5/...Jump to post
767-300(old 2 class), 777-200(INTL 2-class) 767-400, 787-8/9 will start in late 2018 and should be done by 2020. Will the refurbished 763s from the first round of mods actually get the new Polaris seats? I was under the impression they probably wouldn't. Those cabins are newer than some of the 787s...Jump to post
How unfortunate that they ditched the Saul Bass logo. And since United took the same logo, that's two ironic Saul Bass logos killed in favor of the same bland design. I for one loved it !! And still do, has not aged one bit ! In 1991, I flew PAR-ORD, thrilled to be on UA's first 777 ( or one of the...Jump to post
I hate it even more today than I did back in 1991. Saul Bass has two great logos killed for the Turd ball. In 1991, computers were really just becoming part of a standard home and their role in day-to-day life was rapidly expanding. Computer graphics were being debuted in music videos and line-grid...Jump to post

Recall that the A345/A346 family never sold that well Almost shockingly so. It's easy to realize what a failure the A345 was, but I always sorta figured the A346 to be a not-good-as-its-competitor-but-still-decent-selling.... ....until you realize that even the MD11, often also considered to be a t...Jump to post
Why is it odd? It's a UA hub and it is a UA airplane, to say nothing of the fact that CO operated 747s... Their 747 use age was minimal and a historical footnote. Same with AA’s and DL pre nwa. What a laughable statement. This site was so much better when it wasn't free... That’s definitely true. T...Jump to post
Their 747 use age was minimal and a historical footnote. Same with AA’s and DL pre nwa. You know that’s not true.

United's doing a two hour employee flight at each hub. Seats were lotteried off to active employees. Social media videos I've seen of the flights look really festive. :-) Nice. Though it's kind of odd that the 744 would stop at the EWR hub since they never (or rarely) used it there (unfortunately)....Jump to post
[threeid][/threeid] 747-400 N121UA had its "United" title covered over. In its place, a large decal with the words "United 747 Friend Ship" and four blue stars (70's livery). N119UA will receive the same decal. The plane looks really weird because it still has the globe on the ta...Jump to post
I wouldn't assume the A359s will completely replace the 777-200ERs. Something like ~20 of those -200ERs are ex-Continental planes that were delivered between 2010 and 2011; they're substantially newer than the ex-United aircraft. Note not all of the PMCO 777s are that new. 16 are 98-00, 2 are 02, a...Jump to post
