In today's SF Chronicle, United took out a full page ad in the front section detailing how great UA is for the Bay Area. Nothing odd about that.
However, in the ad it says "Also, business class is being reconfigured in our 777 fleet to offer additional legroom".
Does anybody know anything about this? I fly C-class every so often on UA 777s and have never once noticed any need for additional legroom. It just seems odd to me that UA chose to focus on that area. Is this just an effort to solidify their business clientele? With their present financial conundrum, I would think that there would be some more pressing areas that they would chose to focus on than this one. Curious for comments.

Why keep seats you can't fill in the airplane?
It appears they are removing seats from economy. Some B777 still do not have Economy Plus (E+) and apparently they are adding that at the same time as what has been dubbed "C+"..... same capacity in the forward of the two business cabins (it's just two rows) as well as in First. It appears basically two rows in the forward part of Economy are disappearing.
