United Parking Jets and Closing Ted
United Airlines has announced it is to cut capacity by parking 100 aircraft from this Winter in a bid to cut costs on fuel and staff.
It is also closing down its low-cost subsidiary Ted and reconfiguring the Airbus A320s that fly for it into the mainline fleet.
The jets being parked include 94 Boeing 737s and 6 Boeing 747-400’s
Spotters in the US are likely to see these only at desert storage airports, although this remains to be seen depending on how temporary the move is. Many of Uniteds 737’s have already been moving on to new airlines over the past year or two.
