It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a United Airlines Boeing 777-200ER in the airline’s current blue colour scheme at Chicago O’Hare International Airport as it awaits its next service.
United Airlines operates a fleet of 55 Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, for both International and US Domestic operations. The airline also operates the Boeing 767-300ER, Boeing 767-400ER, Boeing 777-200, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-8, Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 787-10 in their international fleet.
This aircraft – N77006, joined Continental Airlines in December 1998 – making the aircraft just over 23 and a half years old. It remained in fleet operating for Continental Airlines until United Airlines merged with them, with the aircraft transferring to the merged operator’s certificate in May 2011.
The aircraft is currently active, basing itself out of Newark at the time of writing. It has recently been visiting Honolulu, Sao Paulo, San Francisco and San Juan, taking passengers across the United Airlines network.
