Flying United Business class next month on a 744. I have the choice of upper deck and main deck. I've never sat in the upper deck before, so I have no basis to compare. Should I head up there? Which would you choose?

Take the upperdeck seat!!!! It is almost as if you have your private little lounge up there, and it is very peaceful and quite.
......Note, the area for carry-on bags and other storage is quite limited..

Have fun and N-JOY!!!!!!!!!

Yes, Go with the upper desk.
Although the UA product is not the best you will get the best bang for your buck with the upper deck.

you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

United's 744 upper deck looks somewhat private.

Do not pass up an opportunity to ride in the upper deck. It is a small intimate cabin and you'll definitely enjoy the experience. If you end up on the lower deck, row 8, 9 and 10 on the window side are good seats even with 8 near the lav and 9 and 10 near the galley area. Row 6 is hard to get as they're reserved for Elites.
The picture of the UA cabin is not accurate. There are photo's in the a.net database of the updated UA cabin with the lie-flat beds as well as on Google. Consult "seatguru.com" and "seat expert.com" for an accurate look at the configuration with dynamic comments per seat row. Note UA's new Business Class has forward and rear-facing seat arrangements so pick your seat carefullly. On the Upper Deck, I recommend rows 14 and 16. They all are very comfortable but you'll note comments about less privacy due to traffic (rows 12 and 17) or if you do not want to consider a rear facing seat.
Refer to the trip report section as well. A couple nice reports on UA's business class service. UA does offer a nice hard product and the cabin and food service is very good. You'll find UA crew on these flights to be very personable, and professional and while the menu may not rank with a Michelin's rating, and Wolfgang Puck won't be fluttering around stirring your soup, there should be no complaints on quality, quantity or menu choice. Dinner, in-flight snacks, Breakfast and beverages on call throughout the flight.
Bar services, in-flight entertainment, a new and innovative and comfortable seat and a ride on a classic wide-body aircraft, served by nice people. Like the ad on TV - Priceless!
I hope you enjoy your trip,
P.S. No, I don't work for UA.

watch what you want. you may get it.
