Thanks,

744

I went on a 744 SFO-NRT-PEK and back. Since my flight was obviously an international one, the service was probably different. I wouldn't expect the service to be that much better than on a regular UA domestic flight, except that you will get hawaiian-themed snacks. The airplane itself is very comfortable, and it should be just like a normal flight.

I flew SFO-SYD twice last year on the UA 744's, both in biz class. Flew in the upper deck and the lower deck. Quite good, no complaints, noise reducing headsets, which really do make it easier to watch a movie or listen to music (cuts the engine noise)

PTV's, nice comfy seats. Quite good.

Had the pleasure of sitting right at the wing root on the way back, taking off heavy from SYD, you could almost see all the fuel in the wings, but as we raced down the runway, the wings slowly lifted until airborne. Nothing like a fully loaded 744!

Haven't flown economy (on the 744's) so I can't comment.

Regards

I thought all KOA/OGG/HNL services were 752/763/777/D10/742 only?

Do 744's even serve Hawaii? Maybe the NRT-HNL flight?

I looked at the site amadeus.net and flight UA40 from KOA to SFO is operated with a 747-400, Also flight UA827 is served with a 747-400 from HNL to NRT

The 747-400 domestic service is not the best. I have only flown in business and the service is terrible compared to the international service. Do not sit up stairs. their is not enough storage up their. Second the 747 is not as nice as the 777 or the 767-300 in my opinion. Starting june 8th the san fran-kona flight will be operated by a dc-10-10 aircraft.

I flew on the UA 744 from Honolulu to San Francisco last summer, and it was horrible. Thought the snack was very good (it was a redeye flight), it was the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on.

Yep flown twice on a UAL B744.

Over the following sectors:

MEL-AKL-LAX - LAX-AKL-MEL.

Found the service to be quite good, were international flights though!

cheers
