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.

New 739 configuration seatmap loaded.

Looks like the new 739 seatmap is now on united.com these will have 20F/159Y for a total of 179 seats. Row 14 is added back in additon to adding a row 39. The first aircraft with this configuration is a 900ER delivered to the sUA side N68811.

http://www.united.com/web/en-US/cont...37/900/v5.aspx

One interesting thing to note is that 12DEF on this configuration is not E+

This probably means that 8ABC no longer have a ridiculous amount of space between them and the mid-lav.

Thats alot of people on a 739. Will UA continue with 40 min turns on these aircraft? All my 739 flights are delayed, due to ridiculous turn times.

N68811 and N68812 are the first two UA 739s with slimline seats, right? Curious to see pics of their Y/F cabins and hear how they compare to the Airbus slimline seating comfort-wise.

EDIT: Here's a pic United released that purportedly shows the new interior.

I still haven't sat in Y in the new Airbus seats, so I can't compare, but I've sat in Recaro on Swiss and Lufthansa, and its not particularly pleasant.

I sat in similar looking seats on reconfigured CRJ-700s, although I was in F, not Y, so again, I don't have any experience with the new Y product. The F seat seemed like a slight improvent on the previous product.

According to Boeing, it was handed over yesterday.

N26910 is still waiting for testing.

UA's first 789 is supposed to enter final assembly in a month or so.

So... it sounds like United does:

Bins, WiFi, and seats at LCQ.
Paint at AMA.

What is done at INT?
