UA870 SYD-SFO today is a 772. My booking for April 1st says 777-300ER. Is today an anomaly and/or is there a real likelihood my equipment will be the shorter 777-200 which would push me back into the main E cabin (current seat choice is 43A)?

Wrong thread? Admin, happy for you to move it if needed.

SFO-SYD will be dropped to 1x daily from 2x daily next month, only using the 77W.

And as of February 16, UA829 was down gauged to a 772 and is used on UA870.

For the return, UA830 gets the 77W, and UA870 gets the 772.

763 Paint:
N641UA sked to exit GSO 3894/23Mar and arrive at CFW.
After 2.5 months in GSO semi-educated guess that the aircraft had corrosion repair at GSO and CWF will update the 2021 EvoBlu livery.

Im curious how this aligns with recent news reports that FAA was putting a hold on United adding new aircraft along with freezing new routes amongst other scrutiny on Uniteds ops.
