N38950 - the first UA 789 to be repainted in new colors - spent 3 weeks in the FTW paint shop. Per Flight Aware she then flew to VCV which is another paint shop but also a repair station. Anyone know what’s going on, assuming the Flight Aware tracking is accurate?

A321neo Future Deliveries
Aviation Flights is a website that provides “Global Aviation Data Analytics of Test, Ferry & Delivery Flights. (https://aviation.flights/) The website includes the latest info on Airbus deliveries, which includes airframes designated for United. So far I've found the site pretty accurate.
Here's what currently shows for United A321neo's: (I wish you could post a real table here.)

321neos had been grounded due to UA not getting a waiver of a regulation requiring No Smoking signs be controlled from the cockpit. UA had them illuminated all the time. UA has waivers for other aircraft types. Apparently, it was solved this morning as N24505 is airborne ORD-LAS flight 777/13Feb.

Not sure this goes in this thread, but maybe it does.

Does anyone know what this flight was about?

Moin!

I assume it is a glitch at FlightAware as United doesn't operate a flight with the number 152, but UTAir operates flights between these airports as UTA152 regulary.

So long

Is there a 787 delivery schedule available? It will be interesting to follow the delivery schedule to understand expansion and retirement (of 767/772) plan.
