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): why did UA start installing it on their 767's and not their 777's or 747's?
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.
Quoting Abrelosojos (Reply 1): 777's had weight and other issues when the new seats were tested initially.
What weight issues??
No, it had to do with the working out of the details for the Y-cabin reconfigurations also.
