(Both the above would be the first United A321neos to come out of Mobile, AL)

Fleet site quibble:
Mainline Fleet, future A321 tab, first line for N24508 lists '11708 or 11775' for the MSN. MSN 11775 became N24511 and has already been delivered. Other sites indicate N24508 will be MSN 11708 and built in TLS.
MY BAD: Other sites indicate N24508 will be MSN 11706 and built in TLS.

I had a slight feeling that it was retrofitted! Finally!

B788, #3909

This aircraft was supposed to fly ORD-AMS last night, but was substituted by a B787-10. There were other substitutions in the past week, but I am not sure that it involved with this same aircraft (B-788, #3909). United will use this aircraft for tonight’s ORD-AMS flight. Also, it seems to be me that UA has a spare B787-10 at ORD, not B788.

Surely PW have ironed out all the issues for new deliveries? It would be boggling to think otherwise. Of course, for older engines with the manufacturing defects, that is still on going.

No, I'm not sure, but RFD has done NEXT mods and there would be no other 738 in mod. Also, the units before and after N37268 have already received the mod. So, an educated guess.
