    Was just checking flights for October and see that CDG-IAD is a 767 rather than a 757. Have been avoiding that route since the 757's, so happy to see this!

    The 767s? Not at all.

    Some are already being retired and over time more will but the company isn't going to cull them all from the fleet immediately. They are investing a lot of money in retrofits to have them available for long-haul, premium flying. Most will remain in the fleet a decade or more.

    Agree completely. There are a group of around 20 sUA 763's that are around 20 years old; we'll see those depart first. However, the bulk of the 767 fleet (especially sCO) came around the turn of the century and have a long life ahead of them, especially the 764's.

    United's got bigger equipment worries (read: REALLY old 752's).

    Agree. Bring on the Queen of the Skies, the 747-8I!

    It would be nice if they'd replace them with that type.

    They didn't. Lots of folks are just hoping they will.
