Bolding mine, did you intend on saying 2020, not 2019?

ContinentalFan Dec 31, 19 12:24 pm

N29968, a B789, arrived in XMN over five weeks ago and has yet to emerge. I was hoping theyd hit the goal of getting at least one -9 converted in Q4 of 2019. 😞

Interesting to see that net-net, the number of Devil's Chariots in the UAX fleet only went down by 1. I thought it was more than that. :(

The first 788 is still in mod and arrived before the first 789. The 789s need Polaris and PP bad, especially for SFO-SIN!

Where are the extra frames for the CRJ-550 fleet coming from?

As new E175s arrive, equal number of C700s needs to be removed due to pilot scope.

No limit on planes that seat 50 pax or less, hence C550 was born @:-)

Im looking forward to the three or four months when the upgraded B789s will be flying to SIN, but the PP cabin wont yet be marketed.

Im monitoring N29968 a few times a day; I want to see how the new layout actually looks.

The LOPA was posted on here in one of the retrofit threads for the 789 - I forget which one exactly.

For Singapore they will only need three birds to cover it and it's most likely the first route so I'd expect it to be marketed as a PP route by March or early April. The first retrofit will be done soon and then you have deliveries in january and February.

That I understand but the totals don't add up. 18 in service + 6 in mod + 20 Mesa + 8 GoJet = 52. This is less than "at least 54". I was wondering if they were pulling C700s from other operators, SkyWest, the desert, etc.

Additionally, the highest current GoJet tail number is N551GJ and the lowest is N501GJ. This indicates at least 51 GoJet C550s in time, unless UA would be using the GJ numbers for Mesa etc.

I'm personally hoping they scrape up a lot of C700s from all over to dump the CR2 entirely.
