I havent been on united new business class on their 767 yet, however i will try it next week from FRA - IAD, how is it, is it better than the regular 777 business class service?

this also leads me to another quesiton:
why did UA start installing it on their 767's and not their 777's or 747's?


PHX - i miss spotting

Yes - SIGNIFICANTLY better. And, MUCH better than LH on IAD - FRA.

777's had weight and other issues when the new seats were tested initially. They should be all new J by end 2010.

I JUST flew this flight on Tuesday. I was non-reving FRA-TPA, but didn't get Business. Missed it by ONE seat  Sad It looked very, very nice.

As noted in another post, I flew it today, IAD-DEN...on a flight that turned as a DEN-IAD-Zurich. You're gonna love the seats, the entertainment system until you walk into 1st, at which time you're gonna want to try that out as well. I was wishing that I was in that seat for longer than three hours just to test how an over-night flight would have been. The 777 Intl Business class is nothing compared to the 767. You wouldn't even know its the same airline.

Quoting Hamad (Thread starter):

Well, the 767-300 fleet is 100% complete now, 21 of 21 ships have the new cabins. The 747-400 fleet is nearly complete, with 20 completed out of a total of 24. N177UA is being reconfigured as we speak, due back in service in mid-August, leaving three frames still in use with the old configuration.

UA started with the 767-300's, as at the time they had the lowest utilization of the international fleets and had frames to spare.

What weight issues??  confused 

No, it had to do with the working out of the details for the Y-cabin reconfigurations also.
