In March, I posted about a new resource that provides in-depth detail about the approximate 700 aircraft in the United Airlines fleet. Everything from exterior items, such as tail numbers and livery information, to interior items, including cabin configuration, economy plus status and in-seat power, is presented in a spreadsheet format.
The new version was just launched and it’s worth bookmarking as it’s constantly updated with changes as more aircraft are either repainted or being overhauled in some way, such as United’s 767-300 “ghetto birds” being converted to an ETOPS lie-flat international configuration.
It, too, is spreadsheet driven and allows you to filter by what you want to see based on what interests you about the fleet. Below, for example, is a screen grab showing information about United’s 767-300 aircraft:
Other areas of the site include a “Meet the Fleet” section with specs about each aircraft and how many of each type have been repainted, a page devoted to deciphering the types as they appear on the United Cargo website and a discussion forum.
The website’s author is highly passionate and dedicated in maintaining it and is open to your questions, comments and feedback. It’s perfect for me as I maintain a spreadsheet myself that lists each flight I take as I like to track not only my mileage accrual, but also the specific aircraft I’ve flown.
