Have they explicitly said they are not interested in both of the new 777s, or just the 777-9? I can see the 777-9 being too much airplane for them, but not the -8.
I think the opposite is true. They probably don't nerd the range of the 777-8, but the -9, in theory, could work well for them.
But unlike AA, UA probably doesn't have the routes or capacity to support the 777X at this point in time.
