Recently just flew to TPE via NRT from SFO. I am United 1k, so I fly quite a bit, and they give me the SWU's to upgrade. I bought my tickets 6 months ago, and was able to upgrade to business on all legs. The SFO-NRT leg was in UA's new lie-flat seats. The NRT-TPE was in the old style lounge chairs. I was able to get the special japanese meal on the SFO-NRT leg. Thank you for watching!

I have included a few photos of the experience, but the real detailed trip report is in my video:


UA B747 downstairs lie-flats
champagne & warm nuts
Japanese Meal
chicken and rice
pre-arrival meal
NRT red carpet club snacks
NRT ANA Lounge sake bar
NRT-TPE salmon & rice
Taipei dumpling house
TPE-NRT cod--very good!
NRT-SFO japanese meal. not bad...
pre-arrival breakfast--very typical UA food.
Over the pacific ocean!

Nice little report!

The pics of the food were great, looks like UA have a good meal concept for their J costumers. The seats looked good as well. Btw how many miles did you pay for the upgrade?

Thanks for sharing.

Nice TR.

I really have to try UA Biz class one time If - as per the text on your vid - after take-off you truly "have champagne & warm nuts". I can only guess at the kind of service F-Class pax receive!

Very nice stuff !!! I enjoyed both of your reports, especially the video !

Not a bad product at all on UA. But a huge difference in terms of seating between the old one on 777 and the new ones on 747.

Generally speaking, is UA's J product superior on a TransPac than TATL ?

Your video told the whole story. I especially liked those takeoffs.

Have you kissed a 777 today?

Quoting LH4116 (Reply 1):

I used systemwide upgrades (SWU's) to upgrade. As a UA 1k, we get 6 per year, so a round trip will require 2.

Yeah, normally UA only does sparkling wine, but I think they are feeling the pressure of other airlines to step it up. They actually offered champagne; I was surprised!

Quoting Flying Belgian (Reply 3):

I think it is, surprisingly. I would think that their TRans ATL should be just as good as their Transpac. But I think you are right that the Transpac is better than the Transatl.

Thank you!
