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.

772
N768UA is now enroute HKG-SFO with new Hawaiian config.
N772UA is sked SFO-HNL-HKG 6855/18Apr for last reconfiguration of an old 3 class
772.

As for pant, my records show the following are still in tulip:
763:
N655UA In GSO for maint since 2/27, (paint not done in GSO to my knowledge)
N662UA In GSO for maint since 4/6, (paint not done in GSO to my knowledge)

744:
N121UA (Star paint, but with UA tulip and blue engines)
N122UA
N174UA
N178UA
N181UA assume painted in HKG (exited 2/27/14) - never saw confirmation photo

Not sure how exact you get with your photos, but there's numerous examples where the photog's caption cites the AC as N181UA. Also, in this picture you can see the tail number is either N181UA or N151UA, but given that the latter registration hasn't been used since it was a 742 I'd say that's your bird.

What's the difference between the 739's "SKY Signature E+" and "SKY Interior E+" ?

Does "SKY Signature" refer to the slimline seats?

I'm assuming that's what it means. Sky Interior is CO seats, Sky Signature is slimline seats.

Great, a standard Google search did not show me updated photos. It looks sharp painted.

A320:
N481UA exited LCQ 6868/17Apr with slimline seats/bins (already had WiFi)
61 of 97 now have Slimline

772:
N772UA sked HKG 2120/19 and 2121/19Apr SFO-HNL-HKG for Hawaiian mod.
This closes the books on the old 3 class 772 with Business Barcaloungers

739:
N68807 exited INT 2145/19Apr. Amenities show DTV and WiFi. Think the DTV is an error as I believe sUA 739ERs are to get streaming WiFi.

N66808 entered INT 2144/19Apr
