United Airlines Fleet Updates [2014 Thread]

The Fleet Status site is:

https://sites.google.com/site/unitedfleetsite/

At the site, you can find information about the interior features, livery, etc., for every plane in United's fleet.

To determine which plane your flight will be on go to mobile.united.com and then click on flight status. Put in the flight number for your flight and just have it use today's date (occasionally it'll say flight not operated on this date in which case just choose one of the other 3 dates it lists). In the address bar you'll see something like this:

mobile.united.com/FlightStatus/FlightDetails?carrierCode=UA&flightNumber=415&flig htDate=9%2F15%2F2015&origin=JFK&destination=SFO

https://mobile.united.com/FlightStatus/FlightDetails?carrierCode=UA&flightNumber=415&flig htDate=9%2F15%2F2015&origin=JFK&destination=SFO

Just change the flight date to match the day of your scheduled flight and then change the origin / destination as necessary. Once you do that look in the details tab under aircraft # and if they have assigned a plane it'll say something like #3506 and the type of plane. Once you know that go to the United Fleet website listed above and cross-reference the four digit number against the "aircraft" column under the appropriate aircraft type.

Keep in mind that things change as they get closer and sometimes either they won't have assigned an aircraft yet or it'll be assigned #0 if it's a few days away and they are anticipating aircraft movement.

You may also check the specific fleet variant of each flight at the United Cargo site under "Schedules & tracking". This data tends to be reliable starting 7 days in advance, but is always subject to change.

Minor correction for the first 789 on the fleet site. It's showing tail #951 as the first 789 however it's tail #950 N38950.

Also sUA 777 Tail #2474 now has WiFi.

I was on A320 N493UA this morning DEN-SFO. It did not have overhead entertainment as listed on the fleet site (or if it did it was never activated). The safety demo was done by the flight attendants in the aisles. I never saw the monitors come down overhead. Channel 9 and the rest of the audio system was working, however. WiFi was functional, at least to access united.com and the United app. Still had the old seats.

Is this a "transitional state" for the A320s where they have wifi and no video but still have armrest audio and CH9?

787-900

Anybody know when the 1st 787-9 will arrive? UA really needs to dump the 763's and 764's asap.

First 789 arrives in July. The 3 cabin 763s are leaving the fleet starting in October of this year, however the 764s and 2 cabin 763s will be around a while longer.

Thanks for the info on the 789! Would you happen to know when United will place the 789 into its reservation system for initial domestic flights?

Why? Those are the 2 best aircraft in the fleet as far as comfort.

My guess is by May. And these will be loaded as regular flights they won't be "surprise" flights. Also we may see the 789 flying an international route ie LAX - PVG long before the official launch of the 789 international LAX - MEL.
