I think you can fly ORD to IAD with United on a 777 and you dont have to continue to an international flight. One time I was planning to fly from IND to IAD via ORD but I didnt have time to take the 1pm flight which was when the flight was scheduled for.

UA does offer a bunch of flights with the 777 domestically:
Many from SFO-HNL, or OGG (but those are the domestic configs)
Alot of these flights (except for the IAD-LAX, IAD-DEN, ORD-SEA-DEN) utilize the 777 to move equipment around the system. Sometimes, though, they will throw in a 744. I remember in 2004, UA946 & 947 IAD-LAX-IAD, was operated by a 744. Even a few months ago, there was a SFO-LAX flight with a 744. You have to remember though, the international fleet is stretched to the max right now, and with the summer approaching, you will see less and less widebody domestic service, as those aircrafts will be needed for the extra capacity on Intl' routes.

Quoting Dugway (Reply 18): You can actually fly on QF107/108 LAX-JFK vv if you are travelling on any QF flight into/out of the US, so to/from SYD/MEL/BNE/AKL.
Actually you can fly it if you are connecting to any international flight. Doesnt not have to connect with a QF flight. I was going to fly it and connect with LAN to LIM. But the fare is very expensive. Was an extra $1,000 to fly this flight versus J on AA.

Quoting Raes (Reply 1): DL operates a 777 service on ATL-MCO, and perhaps other destinations.
They do this for pilot training and the T7 as a 'replacement aircraft' just in case they need it pronto....at least they used to coz I flew it late last year.
Quoting AndrewUber (Reply 10): Can you buy a ticket on QF just for the LAX-JFK route? Or do you have to include Australia in your travel?
No you cannot. You'd have to be on transit from Australia. I believe the LAX-JFK QF flight is fed by morning incoming Oneworld flights thus is usually full.
Quoting AndrewUber (Reply 10): I flew UA SFO-ORD on a 744 in biz class in 1999, that was one sweet ride. Would love to do it again. I searched a month or two ago for a domestic 744 flight and couldn't find anything.
Lucky bastard.... and I got stuck with a 757 on the same route
UA used to fully utilize their early arrivals to LAX and SFO 747's by making LAX-ORD, LAX-DEN, SFO-ORD and SFO-DEN runs. It's my understanding they no longer do that but I stand to be corrected.
About 4 years ago I flew on a CP 777 IAH-EWR that was continuing to FRA. That was a sweet ride coz it's the only time I've been on a CO 777 and I loved it. UA and UA T7's don't compare in my opinion.

I can't think, it's too damn early.. I meant a CO 777 not CP. Also, UA and AA T7's cannot compare, not UA and UA... lol
