Can you actually request a cabin section at check in? Doesn't this depend on your ticket-class (people with cheap tickets generally end up in the back)?
Anyway... In flight, you can just use the windows in the doors to take pictures through. In front of the wing, behind the wing, in between, whatever. You have more space there too (if you use the 100-400 while in your seat the person in the seat next to you will not be happy as you'll be sitting on his lap ). Don't think they'll let you walk all the way up into business class though.

As long as you are not flying UA you should be OK requesting seats
When I flew to SFO I checked in 2 hours before departure but because UA are such a rubbish airline they said they couldnt give me the seats I wanted and how kind, they put me in the middle of the 2-5-2 seating they have on their 772's.

I'll book UA on my next flight if you can get me an upgrade to Bus! Lol!!!
Cheers all for the reply, currently i am prebooked on AA 772's with seats 34J+k both ways, wanted to get the 2 seat part of the config so my gf is happy. Hopefully they should be ok as well as using the door windows!

Dont bring the impeccable service of VS into this...
It only takes one bad experience to lose a customer for ever... And yes you would get better service from VS. We win awards for our customer service. I dont ever see UA in the top 3 airlines for any award...But VS...
I rest my case

Oops hate to turn this thread into why or why not fly UA
But I pretty much made up my mind. I will ONLY fly UA for the rest of my life on those routes served by them
And I contribute over 30000 dollars a year, yep I am happy the way I got treated! Still have 8 SWU and 44 x500 miles regional upgrade + 10 regional confirmed to use by end of 2004
The double mileage and complimentary upgrade on UA is a real winner! Your body comfort always go first before the service, which UA can be surprisingly good too!
Finally if anyone fly UA 777, if you want a engine shot Row 13 is best, that is Business class. Row 8 or 9 is best for forward wing and engine shot! Again most good engine shot on 777 will be in Business cabin.
