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 https://www.cablepick.net/united#

Just enter your flight number, date, origin and destination. 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.

763:
N668UA exited SFO maint 2184/4Jan

772:
N78013 exited HKG maint 180/3Jan
N77014 entered HKG maint 179/1Jan

Rumors from an ANet thread show
29 319s coming, 25 China Southern, 3 or 4 Spirit

744 N171UA, in TUP and expected to be scrapped may have been sold

772 N215UA should be getting ISP with uncoming heavy check with anticipated completion in April 2016.

Airbus New First Seats/ISP should start churning out mod completions beginning this month.

UA may be taking some more 73Gs and maybe some 738s from Copa.

I still would love to know when power is coming to the Airbus fleet. Without it the WiFi "free" entertainment is useless in my opinion on any 3+ hour flight (which is just about all I take domestically).

73G:
N38727 and N17753 are confirmed with Ka-band Wifi (and scimitars). N17753 still without ISP and PDE.

738:
N25201 left Guam 2052/6Jan on way for conversion back to Mainland fleet. 738 Guam fleet is now complete after aircraft swaps.

E145XR:
N21144 has left ExpressJet in preparation for transfer to TransStates

Q400:
N203WQ and N34NG are possible fleet exits
N356NG confirmed left the fleet (to Flybe)

FYI: power is coming to Airbus fleet F/E+ as the First class cabins are refreshed (slow process beginning this month)

Good News Jose.
Where do these come from? Don't see anything on new aircraft, Planespotters don't show those N number. N Numbers on files with FAA from 2005 - Also have N77538, so probably purchased in case CO bought more 738s.
Are these new or Copa units?

Thanks. Glad to hear it. Personally I hate Airbii and try to avoid them but sometimes you just get stuck.
