What is United doing with all the Global First seats after they are removed? Do they get a shot a an afterlife or just a landfill? pretty sure the seats are going to the landfill. those seats are out of date and old, no one is going to want them anyway! Samething with the old business (2-3-2), a lo...Jump to post
Sorry: in this diagram are the straight forward seats indicated almost as a white line, one by the 2 sidewalls and one down the center? I see the angled seats fine! sorry if this was answered, but is UA releasing a separate 763 with a premium heavy layout or is it the same as the current polaris se...Jump to post
Dont forget the very high premium 763s will be arriving soon also into the mix. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dar5w7eUMAMVW_8.jpg Sorry: in this diagram are the straight forward seats indicated almost as a white line, one by the 2 sidewalls and one down the center?

SFO cut IAG a deal to consolidate their services at SFO? IIRC, BA are also ceasing OAK. Going seasonal, supposedly. Although who knows if it really comes back in 2019. BA flies to OAK??? weird how they fly to OAK and SFO. I'd imagine SFO is better in terms of passengers and one world connections.Jump to post
They need to fix their Gate and Terminal layout before they add another runway. I've lost count on how many times i've arrived at the gate behind schedule because they had to wait for another plane to exit the gate area. LAX is congested when it comes to Terminal space and traffic. One way exit and ...Jump to post
By the way, what was wrong with the 767-200ERs from Continental that they retited them so early? Afaik they were as new as the 767-400s, built in the early 2000s, a decade younger than many of the UA 767-300ERs. I know they are heavy, weight per seat is much higher than the 763ER. But they were per...Jump to post

i remember reading on a few forums on how the 764 will not get the Polaris seat, what is the reason behind that?
With the first 772 retrofit near completion, and another one with the new Premium plus..how long till we see the entire international fleet with the new Premium plus?
They don't have any cargo aircrafts? So they truck everything? Not saying you're wrong, but that's hard to believe with how much weight they haul. Do they utilize Jet.com's fleet since acquisition? They use USPS, FEDEX, UPS and any other large cargo airline. If they dont ship via air cargo, its on ...Jump to post
Question though (I apologize for my ignorance) - Why a 3-2 configuration at all? If there's really a good reason for it, why other airliners (the B717 for example, the MD11 which some airlines used to configure as 2-4-3, etc...) have not kept their market? Why don't Boeing and Airbus consider thems...Jump to post
Stunning aircraft!! whos next to receive the 78J???Jump to post

SFO was/is having weather delays. this might just be an issue with ATC playing tetris with the planes. Like the above comments, if a plan comes in early, it has wait till the a gate opens up...Jump to post
I think it is related to cost. 3-3-3 is identical sets of seats (easier to reconfigure or replace) 2-4-3 also needs 1 more entertainment box I think I would personally also prefer 2-4-3 I would also bet that the reason is cost. Identical sets of seats are cheaper to replace, etc. Interesting to see...Jump to post
I'm interested to see what changes with the 787s in the coming weeks. I believe the 788s are overscheduled as currently loaded. I'm seeing 788s on SFO-ZRH, SFO-TLV, SFO-KIX, SFO-XIY/CTU, DEN-LHR, DEN-NRT, IAD-GRU, IAD-LHR, IAD-ZRH, and IAD-PEK. I expect one or two of those will need to move up to t...Jump to post
Today looking up flights to New York I noticed when I viewed the seat map for my return choice UA341 on April 9th EWR-IAH that they show the 737-900 as only having 8 First Class seats. Is this correct? Is UA shrinking the cabin from 20 to just 8 or is this an error? With the flight being so far out...Jump to post
N898UA enroute LCQ UA 2688 CAN-NRT-ANC-DEN for Induction (ex-China Southern B-6242).
Damn, if that was a commercial flight, that is one i would avoid!! NRT-ANC is what 7.5 hours? way too long to be stuck inside an A319 lol
767-300(old 2 class), 777-200(INTL 2-class) 767-400, 787-8/9 will start in late 2018 and should be done by 2020. Will the refurbished 763s from the first round of mods actually get the new Polaris seats? I was under the impression they probably wouldn't. Those cabins are newer than some of the 787s...Jump to post
Patience man... It's going to take time for Polaris to be fully out on this massive fleet of aircraft. Right. Let's not forget that Polaris hasn't even been in service for a year. It takes years to roll out new premium seating across a fleet. When the 764s have seats which are only about six years ...Jump to post
We've seen plenty of long haul LCC's from Canada & Europe & many of the EU ones are now flying to USA. Canada probably led the pack with Air Transat & Canada 3000, but now the EU zone is taking over, with WOW, Norwegian, Icelandair etc. + from Asia have JINair(KE low cost) jam 393 seats...Jump to post
I presume there is no news or rumors about getting a second kind of bed seat for transcontinental ps service- such as a slightly modified all aisle access off the shelf solution for aircraft not slated for Polaris yet fly long and sometimes premium routes. There is no 767/757 replacement coming any...Jump to post
I can see UA getting them. They seem to be pretty happy with the 77W, so i can see UA getting like 15-20 777-9Jump to post
maybe i should have asked which one was most comfortable and passenger friendly.!! That makes it a more interesting question. While 1-2-1 is the current gold standard in this regard for J, the need for airlines to still put as many people as possible in the cabin means that most of those fly in a (...Jump to post
50 Polaris seats on the 772! How many are there on the 77W? I have flown in the Polaris seat and think it's great, especially the forward facing seat with 3 or 4 windows. If they get J fares for those 50 seats they will make a lot of money on those 772s. It does seem like the Polaris 767 is the way...Jump to post
Which airlines offer the best Premium Cabin layout? i got bored and went through the different seating configurations on Seatguru and found some look more appealing then others. For example: ANZ offers a 1-2-1 seating, but those seats look super cramped......(reverse herringbone??) UAL-Polaris is a ...Jump to post
i think its a fresh paint job. Air Canada did good by not doing what all the other airlines are doing. they wanted something original.Jump to post
im guessing you're flying on the 77W. That flight is most likely continuing to Asia. Since you're flying domestic, you'll just walk through the terminal.
Like the above post, Jetblue and a few other domestic airlines fly out of the international terminal.
I've flown on the CRJ-200/700/900........and i HATE THEM!!!! whoever designed a plane that sits up to 70 (CR7) with one bathroom.....???? despite them being small and cramped, they are the work horses for US regional airlines. CR2 is small and cramped. CR7 isnt any better other then having a small 1...Jump to post
