United has been the lead off airline in numerous other >airliners, such as the 737, the 727, the DC-10 and the latest 777. Actually, I believe Lufthansa was the lead-off carrier for the 737. United was the lead for the 737-200, which became the predominant type until the CFM-powered models came along. Since only two or three dozen -100's were built the Lufthansa lead-off status could be considered a "blip" in the record but, technically, they were first. Cheers!
