First Class On UA's Domestic 777s

I've noticed that UA's domestic 777s are configures with only 6 seats across in a 2-2-2 layout(according to seatguru). For a domestic first product it seems that those seats must be very wide, considering that they have 7 across in their International Business Class on the 777.

How comfortable are the seats?
Does the cabin have an open, comfortable feel?
How's the legroom?
Any personal IFE?

Also, can anyone find any pics on here of the seats? I did a search and found nothing. Thanks for any info!

I think they're the same as domestic F class...

No personal IFE, not that much of a recline. Basically similiar to a 757 in F-class, with a pitch of 38". If the person in front of you is reclined fully, it is sometime challenging to open your tray table but it can be done.

They are the same design and style as the rest of their domestic First Class seating, though they are the widest at 21". They just have insanely wide aisles, which makes loading and unloading the cabin a breeze. IFVE is a projector in the front center and 17" LCDs on each side bulkhead.

I flew F class SFO-HNL on a 777 and found the seats to be extremely comfortable and roomy. In fact, the person in front of me reclined his seat and I didn't really notice!

No PTV's, but UA's in-flight entertainment system (and free headphones) left me not caring about that.  cloudnine

I thought that most of the hub to hub flying was international 777s. Is this not the case?

The 3 class aircraft are usually repositioning flights that vary from season to season. The 2 class ones are normal, scheduled flights.

my only flight on a 777 domestic was in F class and the seat configuration was actually 1 - 2 - 1. my wife and i sat "next" to each other in the middle seats, although we could not have touched each other with our arms extended out.

the seats were very luxurious. they basically folded into flat beds, had swing arm ptv's, and there was even a lumbar massage feature.

it was the best domestic flying experience i've ever had.

this was a flight from IAD to DEN back in 2000.

You were on an international 3-class aircraft that was repositioning

UA933 is not currently used as a flight number on IAD-LAX. It is currently the flight number for FRA-IAD-DEN, with a change of gauge to an A320 for the IAD-DEN sector.

Currently, 3-class aircraft are flown IAD-LAX under flight numbers UA899 (763ER) and UA947 (772ER). UA947 often upgauges to a 744 during the summer months.

Is there a reason why US carriers offer a first class product on Domestic routes?
I wonder weather or not this is a "status" product as opposed to a money making scheme. Correct me if I am wrong but is the US the only country that has first class on a regular domestic service?

The First class offered on US domestic routes is usually called Business class in order countries. It is not the same thing as international first, rather it usually involves a wider seat, about 7 inches more legroom and free hot meals. The seats are similar to what QF has on their domestic A332s and 763s or to what BA has in Club Europe on their 763ER Europe flights

When sold as a 3-class aircraft domestically how does the service in J differ from the service in F?

Well, the seat is the obvious thing. I am not sure about how food service goes, but I am betting that F is catered a bit better, especially given that the 3 class aircraft are all travelling between stations with full international catering. On p.s., there is a very clear differentiation, though I think the food service is similar in the 2 forward cabins. http://www.unitedps.com/main.html

Yeah, I know about PS. However, there isn't a section on UA's main site that talks about domestic J service (other than PS)

Basically, you get the same kind of thing, though I am not sure if the catering is slightly different between the classes. The biggest difference is the seat, particularly on the 744 and 772ER where you have a lie flat pod seat in F.
