United Airlines considers a replacement order for 10 Boeing 777-300s, will drop service to Regina and Saskatoon from Denver

United Airlines (Chicago) is considering an order for 10 Boeing 777-300 ERs according to Bloomberg. Quoting an United representative, the stretched Triple Sevens would possibly replace other aircraft  United has on order (i.e. 787s). Boeing needs to keep the 777-300 production line going until the new 777X version is ready for production.

In other news, United is dropping its routes from its Denver hub to Saskatchewan. The carrier will drop service to both Regina and Saskatoon on February 28.
