Newark (EWR) to Mumbai (BOM) – Boing 777-300ER
Beginning October 27, 2018, United Airlines will fly its Polaris-equipped Boeing 777-300ER aircraft from Newark (EWR) to Mumbai (BOM). The route is currently served daily on United’s two-class Boeing 777-200ER aircraft.
San Francisco (SFO) – Asia Winter Reductions
United plans to reduce capacity on three routes from San Francisco (SFO) to Asia, seasonally switching from the Boeing 787-9 to the smaller Boeing 787-8 aircraft.
- San Francisco (SFO) – Seoul Incheon (ICN) 787-8 Jan – March Day 6
- San Francisco (SFO) – Shanghai Pu Dong (PVG) Oct – March
- San Francisco (SFO) – Tokyo Haneda (HND) Nov – Jan (Day 6), Jan – March (Daily)
San Francisco (SFO) 777 Swap
United will swap San Francisco (SFO) to Tokyo Narita (NRT) and San Francisco (SFO) to Taipei (TPE) from a 777-300ER to a 777-200ER. Currently, the schedule shows a three-class aircraft with first class closed for booking.
Tel Aviv (TLV) Switches to Boeing 787-9
San Francisco (SFO) to Tel Aviv (TLV) – currently operated by the 777-300ER – will switch to a Boeing 787-9 effective October 27.
Where Are the 777-300ERs Going?
United begins its seasonal service to Auckland (AKL) on October 27, so that accounts for ~1.5 of the birds. My best guess is United will use the slack in the 77W fleet to begin Premium Plus (premium economy) reconfigurations.
