Do All UA 777 Interiors Look This Dreadful?

I was looking at this picture and I couldn't help but think how dreadful this 777 interior is. Not only do the seats look sloppily put together, but the headphones are simply stuck into the tops of the headrests. This photo makes it clear that UA is truly lacking in cabin appearance and customer perception. Being that this is an intra-Asian flight, I would think more care and effort would've been given to the in-flight experience. I can't imagine KE, OZ, JL or NH dipping down to such low standards. It's painful enough looking at the photo of this interior for 2 minutes, imagine how bad it would be to be trapped here for 10-12 hours on a trans-Pacific flight.

I will admit that it's not stunning. I think the 2-5-2 seating gives it a far more cramped look than the 3-3-3 arrangement. However, I don't think that it looks unapplealing. These things are all a matter of personal perception, but I personally can't find anything in the photo that offends me. I suppose the option of placing the headsets in between the headrests and seatbacks could be considered a bit untidy looking, but it certainly wouldn't cause me to make a big rant.

Also keep in mind this plane was built in Sept '96. It was the 43rd 777 produced. UA's birds are some of the oldest out there, and while they might not look all that great now, it was probably a bit nicer when the plane was first built over 12 years ago. The cabin refit should help this problem, but my general stance is always "If the plane gets me from one city to the next safely it was a good flight".

That was exactly the same feeling I got when I saw this photo.

I'll admit that it doesn't look quite as nice as, say, Virgin Atlantic's economy section but it's not a horrible looking cabin either (and having flown on UA 772s I can say that it's not such a terrible experience). That there's room for improvement is a given but the same can be said of many airlines from many countries. Besides I would dare say that UA is not charging top dollar for its economy cabin so you pretty much get what you paid for. UA is upgrading their premium cabin, though, so if you prefer a nicer atmosphere then UA would gladly sepparate you from your money for it.

I'm not trying to defend UA necessarily but it is always good to keep some perspective.

It's an easy and effective way to make sure each seat has a pair and each person knows where to find it.

As for the seats, they are the older style seats, you know, the COMFORTABLE, padded, soft seats? I'll trade that for the older color and 'ill fitting' fabric in a few places.

I prefer this to the new slimline (or should they be called "hardline") seats that companies are using now. Fine for shorter flights, but nothing beats good padding for a longer journey.

Old and new. Pretty nice and a "clean" look which I like. The leather int. and blue makes the cabin look pretty airy too. This really helps DL's product as it makes the a/c look larger and newer, even on the 757s and MD88s. I will admit though that the UA cloth looks more comfortable than both DL versions.

Exactly. I don't like DL's seats at all in Y. Every version they have is uncomfortable when compared with UA, AA and CO, and the new, improved leather seats are the least comfortable design in their fleets (other than the old low back leather seats...) But it "looks nice."

Looks like a 10 year old interior with the headphones conveniently located on the top of the seat so you don't have to go diving down the seat back pocket to come up with who knows what on your hands.

Novel idea. I like it.

UA's hard product on the 777 isn't anything special, that's for sure. But it's still miles ahead of some of their competition. Specifically, DL on the 763, AA on the 763, or NW on the 744. While the PTVs aren't AVOD, at least they have them. Plus, the seats are fairly comfortable and offer adjustable headrests, etc. I should add that I've flown OZ on the SEA-ICN route, and their seats weren't as good as UA and they had the same tiny PTVs without AVOD.

On International Flights yes, but don't get excited they have maybe 4 movies to chose from.

UAL interiors are nothing to brag about but, like stated they are older 777. Hopefully UAL will move to at least new PTV and upgrades to seats in their new cabins due in the next few years.

When was the last time you've flown Delta? I guess it's all a matter of perspective but would classify AA and others interiors as "crumy" far before Delta. And speaking of domestic flying, I would take DL over all other legacies because of IFE. I can take the seat for 3-4 hrs. They're not that bad. Couple that with 100% completion of the Mad Dog fleet with IFE which is what? about 25% of the entire fleet? This doesn't include 757s and MD90s that are already complete.

I think that the way people defend the American carriers is wonderful. Such loyalty.

I flew a UA 747-400 from LAX to NRT and an ANA 777-200 on to PVG. When I boarded the ANA flight I was stunned. I never realized how bad UA was until then.

NRT-PVG was a 2-hour flight. The interior of the ANA aircraft in gray, yellow and blue was sublime. It looked like the inside of a Philippe Stark hotel. The kind where the young and beautiful stay.

The F/As were immaculate. No spikey bleached hair, uniforms worn shiny from washing too many times or butts too big to make it down the aisle without bumping into you.

The economy meal I received both directions was excellent with smoked salmon. The IFE was the top of the class with many movies available, games, TV and all free.

I am an American and I love the US like a favorite dog, but I long ago faced the fact that the American century is over and the Asians are going to kill our asses from now on.
