It's a repainted 777 but let's hope it's an old configuration vs the new one (and if yes, maybe it will get pulled out of service and upgraded while the repairs are being done)
But seriously...I doubt it could be anything serious. Probably just a cowling to be replaced.
The news media is so dramatic.
"No flight delays were reported"
That had to be on a newly arrived flight then. Longish ground time enabling aircraft sub?
Wait a minute. This is the 5th post in this thread and no one has blamed Smisek yet?
I think we need some stronger coffee or something.
Should have put those park distance sensors on the baggage tugs... cheap bastid.
if the baggage handler was overweight does he have a back up beeper
I hear the driver of that luggage tractor was so distraught by the new paint scheme that he couldn't stop himself from driving into the aircraft.
Doubtful. Wouldn't they - worst case - just swap the engine? And are they even doing 777 upgrades in SFO?
It was his own personal protest.
Maybe United should reconsider the change to Fixed Based Sims for baggage tractor drivers and keep the full motion sims as well?
You folks are hilarious =D Keep it up!

I love how the reporter was so into this story. Glad they're staying on top of it until they get to the bottom of it? (whaaa?)... Big news for the Bay area I guess.
At least... most of us
More like "big news for local news station". Really don't understand why they cover these things, but apparently it sells.
We're all resigned by now and automatically assume that not only was Smisek ultimately responsible, but that he was also the likely driver of the baggage tractor.
because it was something we'll like.
Next month's CEO message "...Me and my 79,999 colleges..."
Or brings in ad revenue from people who post it on forums and click on the link...
Apparently at least one of the "80,000 best in the business" colleagues excels at dinging parked aircraft
