Actually, a 747, a 763, and a 757. There are now 3 SFO-IAD flights out of SFO between 0800 and 0900 with three IAD-SFO between 1630 and 1800. >AA can't have that many widebody flights on these routes because they >don't have the equipment.

UA is down to 21 DC-10-10s (plus the 8 DC-10-30s) in service. Of the 23 not in service, some are retired while the rest are stored and will return as others are retired. >UA does fly big stuff ORD-SFO at peak times, but a lot of flights are >757s with an occasional A320 and/or 727 flight. No 727s anymore. Both ORD-SFO and ORD-LAX are "video equipped" only markets. -- -- Larry Stone --- firstname.lastname@example.org Belmont, CA, USA My opinions, not United's.
