United using 777 between EWR and SFO/LAX

United using 777 between EWR and SFO/LAX

  1. Kevinwdw

    From this week until early September, United will be flying once and on some days twice a day 777-200 between Newark and SFO/LAX. Great opportunity to fly across the country in a wide body aircraft. Also I think United is upping their service with American as Amenity Kit – slim version of the current BusinessFirst kit, will be offered to passengers in the Premium Class. Now, I don’t see a way to purchase or to upgrade to a Global First seat.

    If it’s got Global First, that means their business class is 8 across. While a transcon is funner on a widebody, the 8 across is kind of meh.

    As [USER=29]@David W[/USER] says the UA B772 with Global first is not very good in J, seat is about same width as Premium economy on a Cathay B777. Or worse than a B757 with PS service which normally fly on these routes.

    Now if UA has flown one of their B772 with BusinessFirst as the highest class it would be a different story.

    Not sure about the planes with business and first, but Seatguru had this comment on the 2 class.

    “This international 2-class configuration was formerly part of Continental’s fleet but has since been outfitted with new BusinessFirst flat bed seats.”
