UA 767 -- Int'l Or Domestic?

This summer I will be flying a UA 767 on July 26, UA flight 0949 with service from ORD to SEA. I was wondering- what are the chances that that this flight will be on an international-version 767, with PTVs, etc. Also- I had a couple questions about international planes on domestic routes:

1) If the a/c has PTVs, will they turn them on?
2) What do they do with the business class seats? Are they given to whoever already has the seat number, premium economy, first class, etc. ?

Thanks- Joe

I believe this flight will most likely be on a domestic 763. Since there are no International 763 flights on United from Seattle, I think it would be unlikely. I've flown on the domestic versions in between ORD and SFO/LAS. They're pretty standard, but do have a pretty nice pitch it seemed. I think the only premium class is a domestic First service, and is marketed as such.

Ok, thanks. That's what I was thinking too, as UA dosen't have any int'l flights out of SEA (or at least that I know of). Oh well.. I was able to book it economy plus!  Smile

Anyone have any idea about these?

Thx..

I just looked it up (had forgotten to before) on UA's time-table, and UA operates 3 non-us routes out of SEA, and the a/c status on all of those is showing as changing according to numerous factors.

I would actually think that it could be an international aircraft as sometimes to fill in for open time, they will send aircraft on short runs to various cities. AA did it with flight 2446 for a while with a 777 that had 8 hours of a lay over at DFW I believe. So it could be possible.

It depends, go to their website and pretend to book a flight for that flight and then before u book it, click on select seats and see if its a 3-class or 2-class plane. THey do turn on IFE, business and First are sold as 2 seperate cabins but u may be lucky and get E+ or upgraded.

In similar situations on other airlines it is usually the case that top tier elites get assigned the seats, so think UA 1K and UA PremEx, possibly non-UA Star Golds.

You may luck out and find that if you check in early you'll get J seating.
