Any thoughts on the UA retro jet (475UA) returning to service? Looks like she flew to Mobile on 12/6/2021, but nothing since then.

I see it from the opposite side. International travel is more dominated by leisure passengers than it has been for many decades. Leisure travelers are far more likely to travel in groups of two or more where sitting side by side is often desired.

If previous timings hold, 789 N26967 should exit XMN in the next few days. Is there any word on timing for the next bird to enter for Polaris?
