United is quoted by several sources from the Wall Street Journal to the New York Times, as having indicated to Boeing it is interested in the manufacturers 767-300ER.

Boeing declines to comment but its no surprise – United is always keen on choosing the lowest cost option for aircraft whenever it can. 

Boeing recently indicated that it was looking at re-opening the 767 passenger aircraft order book. It last supplied a passenger version 3 years ago.
