United is considering a new widebody aircraft order, considers the Airbus A350 and additional Boeing 787 Dreamliners

United Airlines is reportedly considering another new aircraft order, this time to replace its aging Boeing 767-300ER widebody fleet and the Boeing 777-200 widebody fleet.

United’s oldest widebodies are the 38 Boeing 767-300ERs with an average age of almost 26 years, and its 19 777-200s with almost 25 years average age.

United’s 16 Boeing 767-400ERs and 55 Boeing 777-200ERs are also on average more than 20 years old.

United Airlines fleet plans:

Previously the airline annouced orders for 200 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and 70 Airbus A321neo aircraft for its narrowbody fleet renewal.

When combined with the current orders, United expects to add more than 500 new narrow-body aircraft: 40 in 2022, 138 in 2023 and as many as 350 in 2024 and beyond.

That means in 2023 alone, the United narrowbody fleet could add about one new narrowbody aircraft every three days.
