Interesting that the connecting flight NRT-ORD has been cancelled.

Not a cancellation in the sense of not flying, but a change in routing from NRT-ORD to NRT-SFO.

All nine nonPolarized 789's are active today... Except for the three in XMN which are in the process of being Polarized. One out, one in yesterday so the number still flying diamond seats is down one.

Once the 789 refit is done by end of June 2022, does this mean 764 will be up next?

UA has 767 mods done at HKG (HAECO) and there are three more 763s to convert to the high-J 76L configuration, one in progress nearing completion and two more to follow thereafter, both currently in storage. Once that program concludes, UA will either cycle the 76As (30J Polaris) in for Premium Plus mods (not sure if UA will do that in-house; I doubt it), or begin the 764 Polaris conversions. I would expect the 76L mods to finish in early spring, so we'll certainly know by then.

I had not read they were doing premium plus on the 30J 763s but that is excellent news. The 767s are by far my favorite ride!

UAX Update

CR2:
N917SW exited ROW in EvoBlu livery
N701BR entered ROW for paint

Also looks like 763 N663UA will exit HKG on Saturday with Polaris/PP mod
Next in is N669UA (just maintenance I assume)

Correct, I haven't yet seen a seat map for it, but it was confirmed late last year that all 30J 76As will get Premium Plus by next summer.

I flew an A320 last week. It had 3 rows of F. I recall a plan to add a row of F to A319 and A320, is that still happening? The fact that we expired at 1/2 on the waitlist has something to do with my question.
