Hi everyone,

I'll be flying SFO-FRA on United's 747-400 next May. I'll definitely go for Economy Plus on that flight. Now my question is, in your opinion, what are the best Y+ seats on the 747?

Would you go for something in the front cabin (rows 19-25)? Or choose one of the exit rows (33 and 45)? My preference at the moment goes to a seat in row 19...

Any thoughts?

This should answer your question: http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Uni...ited_Airlines_Boeing_747-400_B.php

A bette question would be, why aren't you taking Lufthansa?

Where have all the tri-jets gone...

I would LOVE to fly LH, but there are two problems with them:

1. My connection to BSL: The A380 from SFO arrives in FRA at 10:00. The next flight to BSL leaves at 16:15. That means sitting around for more than 6h at one of the worst airports in Europe. The United flight comes in at 15:00 which is more convenient for connecting and gives me more time in SFO.

2. Price: The flight with UA is around 260 EUR cheaper. Another option would be to fly via MUC, but that is also 200 EUR more expensive than UA (and I've flown the LH A340-600 probably more than 30 times, so a B744 would be a nice change   ).

So, bottom line is, I don't want to spend 260 EUR, just to sit around in FRA all day. Or are the lounges in FRA (LUXX and SKY lounge) worth the money?

If you have any other options, I'd love to hear them
