Also worth pointing out that UA is also putting domestic planes on some TATL routes next summer. The domestic 777 will be on EWR-DUB and a few other lower yielding routes. The key difference, though, is that UA's domestic 777 still has lie flats up front and can be justifiably sold as J, while it's ...
