United Airlines Fleet Updates [2015 Edition]

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=1647&fli ghtDate=11%2F30%2F2015&origin=EWR&destination=SFO

https://mobile.united.com/FlightStat...estination=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.

Now back to Bunky's updates ^
Haha I've always referred to used planes as "Hand-me-downs" Even when CO got the used 753s from ATA I called them "Hand-me-downs"

JustBreathe, I just know where to look on United.com mostly. Look for 21XX series flight numbers into and out of mod maintenance bases. Check united.com flight status for flight amenities of particular aircraft. Check on FlightAware if needed. I inherited the Fleet Site from an up and comer in the industry who didn't have time to continue. With just a few modifications to the Fleet site, I keep it going.

Remember the handoff.

Once again, we appreciate the work you're doing Bunky. I certainly don't have the time

With the above two WiFi installations, sCO aircraft with WiFi is now 200 aircraft of 358 for 55.8%.
Fleet total is 460 of 693 , 1 aircraft short of 2/3 of total mainline fleet.
