753:
N57870 sked to exit SAT 2737/31Dec with slimline seats
This confirms SAT is doing slimlines and N74856 will get slimlines.
Result is all in service 753s now have slimlines with last 3 non-slimlines in mod.

Shaheen Air A319 Update

The following aircraft have all been registered to UA, FAA has all of the serial number information, etc. making this as official as it can be without a formal communication from UA. Change in ownership looks to have taken place between AerCap and UA at GYR. All have the IAE V2524-A5 Engines

Tail Num:.....Mfr SN:.....Mfr Yr:.....FAA Registration:
N4866U.......2404.........2005........Link
N5867U.......2631.........2005........Link
N4868U.......2655.........2005........Link
N4869U.......2738.........2006........Link

We likely won't see anything formal from UA on these 4 until the Q4/FY18 earnings call sometime in February. AP-BNK and the 7 A320s appear to still be in play.

The China Southern A319s appear to all still be in service except for B-6018 which has not flown in a month. It's either in the shop for heavy maint or exit prep.

Any word of the NGS mods for the 752s? Thought those needed to be done soon.

Glad to see CRJ-700s getting replaced with E175s. Definitely my favorite RJ.

Favorite plane for anyone with status who pays for coach IMHO @:-)

FC seat ratio much better than any other plane, especially A319.

Not related to UA other than their planes don't have an oven, but AS versions (Horizon and SkyWest) do, so you can even get a hot meal ^

Aren't the new E175s supposed to have 69 or 70 seats instead of 76?

What will the seat layout be on these?

Hey, I got an upgrade on a A319 once as a non-rev AND there was another FC seat that stayed empty! I was shocked, my own self.

Was just a one-hour flight but it was nice, anyway.

Iteresting. If you look at this flight online, the Aircraf Specifications list it as a 787-9, and the seat map labels it as a 787-8. But it correctly shows the Polaris seating.

Iíve been wondering this as well. I thought the NGS deadline was end of 2018. Was there an extension?

Other threads state that all UA 752 aircraft that are remaining in the fleet have all received the fuel tank mod.

The 25 new E175s destined for a ExpressJet will be 12F/28E+/30Y

All 56 752s have the NGS fuel tank mod complete. Not going anywhere soon.

Got it. I don't remember seeing specific posts about this in last year's Fleet Update thread - guess it must have been (very) minor and not taken birds out of service for much time at all?
