Thanks So is this a mothballed plane? And in any event, couldn’t it make it nonstop rather than via ANC?

Yes, it was stored by UA in 2003.


Then went to Blue Sky Charters.

Here’s a pic of it from Nov 09 back at MZJ


It’s a pretty young plane too (1993) and only 43,000 hours so plenty of life left.

As far as going non-stop, yeah it could have but with full tanks would have needed more than the 6,849 foot runway available at MZJ.
