    Hi All,

    Am trying to put together a return itinerary from the *A Mega Do, and would like to create a route using widebodies. Looking to put together DEN-insert any place here-GRR with a couple of stops in between for miles sake. So far, the only heavies that I see is the 777 from DEN-IAD, (there may be a 777 or 67 that does DEN-ORD but whats the fun in that), and then IAD to ORD on a 767. Does UA operate any other heavies on domestic routes or are these the only 2?

    thanks!

    A great resource here is the unitedcargo.com Widebody Flight Schedule, available from their home page as a PDF as http://www.unitedcargo.com/ShowFiles?filePath=/homelinkpdfs/WB_Schedule-July_2011.pdf.

    If you go to "Schedules" (www.unitedcargo.com/utilities/schedules.jsp), they'll happily give you the Excel workbook, too.

    It's pretty easy to trim that file down and just build a table that shows July 2011 scheduled domestic widebody flights.

    The complete list is:
    DEN-HNL, DEN-OGG, DEN-ORD, DEN-SFO,
    IAD-DEN, IAD-ORD, IAD-SFO,
    IAH-SFO,
    LAX-DEN, LAX-HNL, LAX-IAD, LAX-OGG, LAX-ORD,
    OGG-DEN, OGG-ORD, OGG-SFO,
    ORD-DEN, ORD-HNL, ORD-IAD, ORD-OGG, ORD-SFO,
    SFO-DEN, SFO-HNL, SFO-IAD, SFO-IAH, SFO-OGG, SFO-ORD

    A much more difficult beast is the domestic three-class widebody, and even more rare is domestic three-class equipment with the new C seats. The last time I looked, the new C seats were available on some widebodies operating LAX-DEN, DEN-ORD, SFO-ORD, DEN-LAX, and ORD-SFO.

    I believe IAD-ORD has the 3 class 767 with the new C seats. at least I could have sworn I saw it when I flew on that flight a couple of months ago. thought I was going to europe for a second.

    The chances of it being swapped for one with old C is pretty high, AFAIK.

    On the 777, yes. There are no 763s with the old C. However, I have had a three class 763 on DEN-ORD swapped for a 757 this year, and I've seen domestic 763s and 777s swapped for three class 763s and 777s on some routes as well.
