IAD-Frankfurt UAL Aircraft Change?

I just tried to choose my seat from the United 744 flight that goes IAD-Frankfurt and, unlike the rest of my legs, I cannot pick a seat. I called UA and they said that there might be an aircraft change in the works. As a result of this, is there a high chance that we might get a different plane? It would be nice to be on a 777.

Thanks,

Chris

Well the 3 flights that we serve from IAD to FRA are 916/917 which is a 747, 952/953 which is the newly configured 767 and 932/933 which is a 777....depending on which flight you are talking about will depend on what a/c you might get...the greatest chances of an aircraft change with seat issues would be the 767 due to the fact that there are only 2 new configurations in service...hope this helps and if you have any other questions feel free to ask...

Chris,

When are you going?? In only a few weeks the first reconfigured 744 with the new Suite Dreams seats will be put into service on IAD-FRA. If that's the case, you might want to keep your reservation on the 744 flight....be one of the first anuts to get on it!!

I am on 916 so we will see what happens. TRANSPAC: My flight leaves next Wednesday, March 5. I return on UA 917 on Monday, March 10. It would be fantastic to see those new suites. Is there an exact eta on when UA are putting those into service?

Or, for many of us, lucky and they keep the 744.

There has been an aircraft change for 916 and 952....916 is now operating in the newly configured 767 to FRA and 952 id now operating as the 747 to FRA...This was changes when the clocks were changed for daylight savings...I hope this answers your questions for the seat assignment issue...
