Congratulations, Senior Captain! By now you have proven your ability to fly various aircraft, either with us or with prior experience. You are now afforded your first opportunity to experience long-haul, widebodied aircraft.
The Boeing 757 is a mid-size, narrow-body twin-engine jet airliner. The 757-200 variant has a capacity of 200 and a maximum range of 3,900 nautical miles. The Boeing 757 is used to operate medium to long-range flights, and United Airlines operates 136 of the type.
The Boeing 757-300 is a stretched version of the -200 series, featuring capacity for 243 passengers. The -300 is the longest single-aisle twinjet ever built. United Airlines operates 21 -300s inherited from the merger with Continental.
The Boeing 767 is a mid-size, wide-body twin-engine jet airliner. Designed as a smaller wide-body airliner, the 767 has a capacity of 218 persons and a range of 5,990nm. The 767-300 is a stretch of the original -200 model. United operates 14 -300s and 21 -300ERs.
The 767-400ER is a wide-body jet resulting from two fuselage stretches. The type features a 21.1-foot stretch over the 767-300 for a total length of 201.25 feet. Other improvements include a larger wingspan, raked wingtips (vice winglets), an updated glass cockpit, and new landing gear. United operates 16 -400ERs.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner. The -8 model is the base model, and is designed to replace older 767-200s and -300s, while allowing it to fly where the 767 cannot doe to a shorter takeoff and landing distance. United received its first 787 in September 2012 and has an order for 50 new aircraft.
The McDonnell-Douglas DC-10 is a three-engine widebody jet airliner, featuring a unique third engine at the base of the vertical stabilizer. The DC-10 has a range for medium- to long-haul flights, capable of carrying a maximum of 283 passengers. United operated the type between 1971 and 2001.
