When I look at the United Mainline Fleet site all the 738's and 739's have a SEAT MAP which is some variation of 'SL Sign', does that not mean they all have a Signature interior?

Bunky Would you know what N12005 (787-10) was doing in XMN, regular maintenance? Thanks!

The plane took off today (Feb 2) from XMN to NRT as UA2739 (https://flightaware.com/live/flight/UAL2739).

It is scheduled to depart tomorrow (Feb 3) from NRT to SFO as UA2825 (https://flightaware.com/live/flight/UAL2825).

It looks like it will go back into revenue service initially on transon domestic routes between SFO and EWR.

That is usually maint for 787. Other possibility with XMN is polaris mod, which wouldn't apply for 781. Maybe someone will have more inside information.

The right word is here probably refresh, the DTV NGs had new seats installed around 2015, around the time UA started replacing the old CO seat covers.

However, what I'm slowly starting to lose hope is that the 2025 timeline for the NEXT retrofit is more and more unlikely, any word on any aircraft going for the refit any time soon?

The name of the 737 seats was "Signature Slimlines" when installed. With your input I have changed the current "Sign slimline" to "Slimline" and have "New Signature" on the 38Ms and will use for new seat installations.

According to a post in Airline Pilot Central - it looks like the P&W 777s are being added back to the schedule for late March. Bid packs show some A&B models (777G/U) in the mix starting around 3/24 or so.

Missed opportunity to reconfigure with PP and/or more lie flat (both would have been great)

You mean that UA missed an opportunity? Say it ain't so.

Fresh coats of AA or DL regional service paint would have been even better
