Good Morning Everyone,
I'm planning my trip to Japan this upcoming November, I'm looking at UAL flights from SEA, LAX and SFO. While my departure date is stil about 3 weeks away (November 3, 2010) so flights loads can change for the better or worse, for planning purposes I'm requesting the assistance of my fellow a-netters.
If any of you could provide me with insight on the availability of flight 891 (LAX-NRT), 837 (SFO-NRT), 875 (SEA-NRT)?
Thank you all, your assistance is greatly apreciated.

In aggregate terms the SEA flight sees the overall lowest LF, esp during the winter. SFO can be tight as they are only operating a single flight during winter months, and the LAX flight is seasonally reduced to 777 which cuts capacity.
From the desert to the sea, to all of Southern California

SEA-NRT almost always takes non-revs unless it is peak holiday travel time. Usually you can get business (F is reserved for SA)">UA employees and accompanied companions only).
Loads are hard to tell this far out. It is hard to tell more than 2 days out unless the plane is wide open. SFO-NRT is almost always full and if you get on, you will be in economy. It is not unusual to get 30 SA's listed for that flight.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
