United was the startup carrier for the 767 and had a direct hand in the
design of the original.
  They needed to have a Flight Engineer because of their pilot contract at
the time required one in all jets.  That item is no longer in the
contract, it was dropped years ago.

  Often the lead off airline has quite a say in what will be installed in
new airliners.  United has been the lead off airline in numerous other
airliners, such as the 737, the 727, the DC-10 and the latest 777.
