United Airlines is considering ordering 767s as a replacement for some of its older variants of the type.
The airline confirmed that it is just an option among many others. If it is to be fulfilled, though, that means for Boeing to reactivate the 767 passenger-variant’s production line, that was closed over three years ago.
Currently, United airlines operates 35 767-300 with an average age of 22.4 years and 16 767-400 that are 16 years old on average. The aircraft that the carrier is looking to replace include the 767 passenger jets used on transatlantic routes and to South America and whose average age is about 20 years.
