UA's first flight ME - SFO on Thursday 31 October departed a minute early at 1029 hours, taking off at 1047 hours.

Here is an 'advertorial':


Aircraft is B789 N24973.

Earlier, it arrived in MEL as UA60 four early at 0826 hours, so it's a more than minimum turnaround allowed in the timetable at an outstation, always a good idea for international airlines.

Thrice weekly is not ideal, as a daily would give business and leisure travellers alike more certainty (and perhaps fewer delays) if one flight has to be cancelled.
