United Airlines has concluded in their most recent review that the 767 is the only aircraft that does not have a “line of sigh” in terms of replacing it in the Chicago-based carrier’s fleet. Scott Kirby discussed in a recorded Q&A session with Denver employees viewed by FlightGlobal that the biggest question they have as a company is what will take the place of the 767s. Primarily operating 767-300ERs which have an estimated average age of 22 years along with 16 767-400ERs with an estimated average age of 16 years as shown by the Flight Fleets Analyzer, the 767s are a great and reliable aircraft but they are getting old and slightly outdated.

United Airlines plans to fly them a little longer but have already began discussing investing in extending the aircraft’s shelf-life and ultimately plan for the succession of what aircraft will replace it. Ron Baur, Vice-President of fleet at United initially suggested that the Boeing 787-9 ultimately replace the 767-300ER but the airline has instead used the 19 787-9s it purchased as growth rather than a direct replacement. Although the 787s could still ultimately replace the 767s, the higher capital costs for the 787 is seen as prohibitive to that plan. United executives have also reviewed the possibility of the Airbus A330neo as another option. President Scott Kirby says the airline is currently negotiating with Airbus and Boeing about the succession plans for the 767.

China Eastern Airlines continues to expand their long-haul fleet with a purchase of 15 787-9 Dreamliners from Boeing. The agreement was finalized earlier this year in April and will cost China Eastern close to $4 billion. This investment is part of China Eastern’s strategy to increase global trading. Increasing air traffic along existing routes between China, North America and Europe enables China Eastern to meet international competitiveness and increase profits. The 787-9 Dreamliners join the 777-300ER, another fuel efficient carrier designed by Boeing, as part of China Eastern’s fleet. Together, the two aircrafts are projected to open 100 new nonstop point-to-point routes which help increase their market presence. The fuel efficient carriers also have more capacity and cargo payload, which ensure more room for profitability.

The 787-9 Dreamliners

The 787-9 complements the existing 787 family, which includes some of the most efficient jets of their kind. The 787-9 stretches even farther than the previous design, the 787-8, by 20 feet which enables the jet to fly more passengers and cargo. Despite the difference in size, the 787-9 matches the 787-8 in environmental performance, using 20% less fuel and 20% fewer emissions than the jets they have replaced.

China Eastern Airlines ranks 7th in largest passenger carriers as it provides transportation to nearly 100 million passengers every year. It is also one of the three key airlines located in China, where the airline has its headquarters.

Customers around the world are following in China Eastern’s footsteps and are placing orders on more 787s. Close to 100 orders have already been placed by Chinese customers, which contribute to the total order of 1,100 of these jets thus far. This makes the 787s the top selling twin-aisle passenger and shipment carriers that Boeing has ever had.
