United operates first flight with Split Scimitar Winglets to LA

by amit.uniyal 21. February 2014 04:23

United Airlines has added a new feather to its cap. The commercial airline of the United States has become the first airline in the world to take to the skies using the advanced Split Scimitar Winglets. The airline’s first flight with the brand new winglets departed from Houston for its maiden flight to Los Angeles recently.

The airline operated the Boeing 737-824 N37277 aircraft between the city pair sporting its latest possessions. These winglets use the latest technology. The airline was earlier granted the approval by the FAA to put these winglets in use on its Boeing 737-800 series planes. It is a moment of pride and happiness for the entire management and the team that worked hard to achieve this fleat.

The Chicago, Illinois based airline flies to over 370 destinations worldwide. It is a popular name in the domestic as well as international aviation industry. Renowned for its innovation, the airline has won several accolades for using the technology to the best of its capacity.

Currently, the airline has fitted about 350 aircrafts with these technically advanced winglets. The airline is in the process of wrapping up the installation of these winglets on its 737, 757, and 767 series planes. It then expects to save about 65 million gallons of fuel on a yearly basis, courtesy the newly fitted winglets. This will help the airline become one of the most environment friendly airlines in the United States. It intends to save a total of $1 billion in fuel costs by the end of 2017 thanks to the latest technology.

United Airlines effect changes to frequent-flier award miles

by Admin 20. November 2013 06:07
United Airlines recently revamped its frequent-flier award chart bringing changes to number of miles requirements needed for some of its most popular awards. Media reports quoted Rahsaan Johnson, a spokesman of United Airlines, as saying that the airline is increasing miles requirement in some of the markets for the first time in several years. This was being done to cope up with the increased cost of providing transportation, particularly in the premium cabin and especially on the Mileage Plus partner carriers.

Johnson said that the airline was confronted with a hard decision that was also being faced by other airlines. A piquant situation had arisen before United Airlines and tough choices remained whether to increase the number of miles required for partner awards or to eliminate them altogether. He said that the airline finally arrived at a decision and concluded that its frequent-fliers would prefer to keep those options at an increased cost instead of eliminating them.

United Airlines said that it is changing the number of miles required for both its “Saver” and “Standard” level frequent-flier tickets, including those needed for domestic “stopovers”. The airline further stated that it is changing the amount of miles required to redeem awards for First and Business Class tickets on its Star Alliance partners, including Air Canada, Thai Airways, All Nippon Airways, Lufthansa and many others.
