BOS-SFO On UA E+ With Pix!

About a year ago I posted a trip report for a similar trip (BOS-SFO on UA). However, I've been itching to write a trip report that includes pictures and I decided to use this trip as a test. So, here it is: my first trip report with pix!  camera  Let me know what I can do better in the future. In particular, I'm interested in hearing whether you'd like me to embed the pictures in the future. Adding them using maid was easier and doesn't make the page too painful to load.

If you're interested, the camera I used was my new Sony DSC-W5. I have an Olympus C-8080WZ, which I really love, but it's pretty bulky to carry around when I travel. So, I got the Sony as a portable travel / holiday camera. And this was the first trip I carried it with me. So far, I like it. But the picture quality is definitely not as good as that of the C-8080WZ.

Wed, May 4, 2005, BOS

In a moment of madness, I decided to drive to the airport instead of taking a cab or a bus. Traffic was not a problem. But Central Parking was full, so I was sent to Econo Lot 4. This meant that I'd save some money ($16 per day, instead of $22), but I had to take a bus to the terminal instead of just being able to walk. Oh well. The lot attendants told me that Central Parking is usually full on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as they are the busiest days for business travellers. I took a mental note of that and so should you.  Smile We eventually reached Terminal C.

The place looked really empty, with Delta having moved to Terminal A (I don't think JetBlue had already moved to Terminal C at the time). I had checked in online so I went straight through security. I reached UA's Red Carpet Lounge and I showed my "boarding pass" (i.e. the printout). The agent at the entrace welcomed me politely, took the printout, and gave me a "real" boarding pass. Great! The lounge was pretty busy.

I had a few crackers, an apple, and some water and I made a few phone calls. Around 530pm I made my way towards gate C18 (boarding was supposed to start at 540pm).

I stretched a bit, as I prepared for the 6h flight to SFO. The gate was busy and we started boarding on time.

Wed, May 4, 2005, UA181, BOS 610pm to SFO 939pm, B757-200, Seat 10A, Gate C18

By the time I reached my seat, all the overhead bins around it were already full. So I put my carry on a couple of rows further down. No problem. Someone was seating in my seat and I asked him nicely whether he had made a mistake. It turns out his seat was 11A so he politely moved. Just after 6pm all passangers had boarded and, for once, I had lucked out: the seat next to me was empty!  bigthumbsup  It's always nice when this happens, especially during a long transcon. As soon as I sat down, I plugged in my headphones and chose Ch 9. It was available. Excellent! This was going to be a great flight: Ch 9, good leg room in Economy Plus, and noone next to me elbowing me for 6 hours!

Around this time the captain informed us that we still had some maintenance items pending on the plane and we had to get those fixed before we could leave. Because of this, we would be leaving a bit late. The main item turned out to be a problem with a life raft in one of the doors at the back (some attachment on it was supposed to be visible to the crew but it was not; something like that...). It was eventually fixed and we closed doors at 635pm. I should point out that the F/As and pilot made multiple announcements on progress during the wait, which I personally always like.

We pushed back at 645pm. We were informed that our flight time was predicted to be 5h50m. We reached 22L (IIRC) after a short taxi and we took off at 655pm. I love the powerful B757 take offs! Now, this was not good enough: I love the powerful B757 take offs!  bigthumbsup  Take off was followed by a wide left 180 degree turn and we were on our way to SFO.

My only complaint was that the audio was cut off just before take off and came back 10 mins afterwards, so I missed all the Ch 9 action as we were taxiing and taking off. Bummer.  cry 

Shortly after take off, the F/As started the service with beverages and hot dinner. They even offered three options: meatloaf with mashed potatoes, cheese tortellini, and a cold grilled chicken dish. I had ordered a special meal (low fat) and I indeed got it; small salad with lemon instead of dressing, grilled chicken breast with spaghetti, sauce of unidentifiable origin  scratchchin , the usual inedible stale roll (I ate it anyway), and some cookies (I don't know how low fat those cookies were though...).

Beats a cold BOB sandwich any day. The coffee was also drinkable too (UA serves Starbucks coffee which, even though I'm not a huge fan of, beats most of the stuff other airlines serve). Not bad. Not bad at all for a US domestic flight (how low have we come, eh?).

It was then time to settle down. The movie was Coach Carter with Samuel Jackson but I didn't watch it. I worked on my laptop (I started writing this report and caught up with lots of personal e-mail) and read the book I had with me (Heaven, by Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen; a very entertaining sci-fi novel which I'd highly recommend). With all this, time passed pretty quickly.

The F/As offered another round of drinks and pretzels around the time when we were handed off to Oakland Control. A little bit later, we were instructed to leave our cruising altitude of 36,000ft and we started our descent towards SFO. We stayed in clouds for quite a while and we only came out around 7,000ft. We were cleared for landing on 28R. The last few mins were pretty bumpy, but nothing too dramatic. We landed at exactly 10pm and we were at our gate less than 10 mins later (overall a delay of just under 30 mins; not too bad; I've had worse).

Wed, May 4, 2005, SFO

I've always liked UA's domestic terminal at SFO. I looks modern, spacious, and pleasant. I reached the AirTrain station as the train was arriving. So, I was at the rental car building very quickly. And, thanks to being Avis Preferred, I was in my car less than 20 mins after landing. The only sore point was the car: a Hyundai Accent which sucked and I had to put up with it for 4 days.

----------

Sun, May 8, 2005, SFO

I reached the airport around 930am, dropped off my car at the Avis lot, and I got to the AirTrain station. The train arrived shortly afterwards.

The AirTrain ride is always cool (despite the frequent irritating announcements) and we also got a good view of the airport.

I walked downstairs and searched one of the monitors for my flight. It showed a short delay (10 mins). The check-in area which was really busy and lines at the check-in desks were pretty grim. But I checked in at at self check-in kiosk, which noone was using. I found the UA kiosks easy to use and intuitive and I had my boarding pass within a minute or so.

I then went through security. I used the priority line, which was long as they seemed to have allowed a large group of Janapese to go through it too. But, in the end, it only took a couple of mins to reach the front, so it was not too bad. I should also point out that the TSA guy who was at the x-ray machine was particularly polite and courteous.

I hadn't had breakfast, so my first concern was to get something to eat. There seemed to be a good selection of food places passed security and I ended up getting a bagel-egg sandwich from Noah's bagels, followed by a latte from Peet's (my personal favourite coffee place). They were both good and hit the spot.

I had about an hour before boarding so I decided to walk up to UA's Red Carpet Lounge and spend some time there.

It was quite busy, but I've seen it much fuller in the past. I made some phone calls and watched planes go by. I saw a large number of UA planes in the new colors, including all widebody types (B767, B777, and B747), as well a few B757s and a CRJ. I somehow still prefer the old color scheme... I can't quite tell why though.

My flight was now showing a departure time of 1230pm (20 mins late) so I stayed at the lounge for a bit longer and eventually made my way to gate 73. The departure time was further revised to 1245pm, the reason given was aircraft availability. I took a quick look at the Arrivals monitors and most flights were shown as delayed. It turns out that there was low cloud cover around SFO that was affecting all arrivals. And, you cannot leave unless your plane arrives and unloads its passangers.

Sun, May 8, 2005, UA174, SFO 1210pm to BOS 851pm, B757-200, Seat
10F, Gate 73


Boarding was called around 1220pm or so. I was among the first people in the Y cabin so this time I managed to place my carry on right above my seat. The weather outside was pretty grim.

We closed doors at 1245pm (35 mins late) and I again ended up with an empty seat next to me: two in a row! And Ch 9 was again available. Excellent!  bugthumbsup  We pushed back at 1250pm and made our way to 10R. The captain informed us that our flight time was going to be 5h12m (shorter than usual). A couple of UA planes took off before us (a CRJ700 and a B737-500) and we were finally cleared for take off at 110pm.

We climbed out of SFO smoothly at first, but we then hit some patches of light chop. We eventually reached our cruising altitude of 35,000ft, where things calmed down. Then, everyone settled down for the long transcon.

The captain turned off the fasten seat belt sign and the crew served lunch. The options were the same as the previous flight: meatloaf or pasta. I again got my special meal (low fat): salad with lemon, roll (not stale this time!), radiatore with chicken, vegetables, and tomato sauce on the side, and some cookies.


MyAviation.net photo:

I dare say that the pasta was almost tasty and the fact that it didn't have a partially solidified sauce on top of it, improved (or, shall I say, didn't ruin?) both its appearance and texture. I waited for coffee to be served before eating the cookies.

The film was In Good Company with Dennis Quaid. Again, I didn't watch it. I read Heaven, wrote large chunks of this report on my laptop, answered more personal e-mail, and listened to Ch 9 (the best IFE available on any airline today!). I also kept admiring the view from the window. All the different types of terrain that you get to see during on a transcon always amaze me.

From lunch onwards, we got light turbulance every now and then and the captain kept turning the fasten seat belt sign on and off. I listened to Ch 9 to get the reaction from the planes around us. Everyone was complaining of light chop on all altitudes. Around half-way into the flight the turbulance got worse (I'd say from light to moderate). Our captain called for the F/As to take their seats and requested (successfully) to climb to 40,000ft. It was around this time when we were handed over to Chicago control. The controller asked us whether we could do 41,000ft but our captain declined it and we stayed at 40,000ft. A bit later we were asked to descend to 39,000ft. The controller informed us that the turbulance was supposed to clear out after we lake Michigan and our co-pilot immediately passed on this information to the cabin (of course, whoever was monitoring Ch 9 found out about it ahead of time!  highfive  Wink.

One and a half hours before landing the crew offered a snack, i.e. the hated pretzels  vomit , and more drinks. By this time the ride had indeed got pretty smooth and confortable. The sun had also started to set.

We were instructed to leave 39,000ft a little bit before 9pm and we slowly descended towards BOS. We approached the airport from the west, overshot, turned right towards south-west, and finally did an 180 degree turn at around 4,000ft. All that to line up with 04R. The weather was pretty overcast and most of the approach took place through clouds. We landed a couple of minutes past 930pm and we reached our gate shortly afterwards.

Sun, May 8, 2005, BOS

Terminal C was largely desserted so I got out pretty quickly. Unfortunately I had to wait for a bit for the bus for the Econo Lot 4, which took some time as the lot is pretty far away and we had to stop at Lots 2 and 1 (in that order!) first. And the driver drove like a maniac  crazy .

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Thoughts

Both flights were very confortable (as confortable as you can get in economy anyway) and the short-ish delays didn't bother me much (I've had much much worse). I'll take a short delay in exchange of the Economy Plus legroom and an empty seat next to me any day!

I have to point out that the crews were polite, helpful, and accomodating and behaved very professionally. So, overall, I was delighted with the service that UA provided during these two transcons and I'm looking forward to flying them again in the future.

UA employees: you're doing a great job. Hang in there and good luck! I wish you all the best.  wave

Great trip report! Thank you for the time and effort and all the detail! Glad you enjoyed your flights and thank you for choosing UNITED!

Quoting SNATH (Thread starter):
We reached 22L (IIRC) after a short taxi and we took off at 655pm. Take off was followed by a wide left 180 degree turn and we were on our way to SFO.

A wee bit confused on this one...a takeoff on 22L would have put you on a general SW heading, so a slight turn to the right would have been necessary to head west towards SFO. However, you said a 180 turn, which would have routed you NE towards Ireland and UK! No "wrong-way Corrigan" here...so I would guess you departed 4L or 4R, made the 180 turn and then headed SW using a 220-260 heading most of the way.

Quoting SNATH (Thread starter):
My only complaint was that the audio was cut off just before take off and came back 10 mins afterwards, so I missed all the Ch 9 action as we were taxiing and taking off. Bummer

Interesting...as you know, 175 left (from gate C19...hence the flag above the jetway) from BOS, and maybe they turn off Ch. 9 for a brief time leaving BOS for that reason? I don't know..maybe just a coincidence.

Quoting SNATH (Thread starter):
by a latte from Peet's (my personal favourite coffee place).

Why not Starbucks?  duck 

Seriously...Peet's is great coffee...as with Sam Adams...always a GOOD decision...

Quoting SNATH (Thread starter):
We approached the airport from the west, overshot, turned right towards south-west, and finally did an 180 degree turn at around 4,000ft.

Overshot the runway?! Wow...that surprised me...In 32 years of flying I've never heard of that happening.

Again, great report, and thanks for flying United.

Hi Steve. Do you really need to be this careful when reading the report?  Smile Seriously now... Yes, we did take off from 22L and, yes, we did do a wide left turn. But, as you correctly pointed out, it was not 180 degrees, but more like 270 degrees, since we ended up leaving the Boston area on a NW heading. If you go to

http://www4.passur.com/bos.html

and enter May 4, 2005, and time 19:00 (five mins later than I said in the report, ooops), you'll see our flight taking off and doing the wide turn that I described.

Why not Starbucks?

There's a Starbucks in a Barnes and Noble near my work which stays open until 11pm and I go there all the frigging time... They know me by name. But, I have to say, I prefer Peets any day. It's just that in MA it's now as popular. There are a couple where I go to, but they are not very near here.

Totally wrong choice of words on my part. I meant that we flew over the airport. Apologies. Again, if you go to the passur site, and enter May 8, 2005, time 21:16 you'll see our plane flying just over the airport before doing a right turn.

Quoting Flypdx (Reply 4):
I like to see Airport pics

Yeah, me too. The problem is that there are too many people around in an airport and I feel a bit unconfortable taking pictures just in case someone starts complaining. That actually happened to me in LHR a couple of weeks ago, when I took a picture of some BD desks and the agents started telling me that I'm not supposed to be taking pictures there.

Again, thanks for the kind words and I'm glad you enjoyed the report!!!

Hey, you asked for some tips, so I'm gonna give my opinions here.

You have a casual writing style that flows well, and you also included some details which are both interesting and add "personality." At the same time, you didn't go "overboard" with mundane details like word-for-word conversations with flight attendants or technical details of engines or registrations which tend to drag the story down.

But enough of the English teacher, lol.

Personally, it would have been nice to have seen more pix of the Economy Plus seats or comments on the service contrasted with the regular Economy class service, since your title referenced Economy Plus class. But that's just something in which I'd be more interested, since I don't know that much about the service.

Your pix turned out really well, and show up great on the site.

Great job, and hope to read more of your reports in the future!

Yes, good point. I thought it was common knowledge! Obviously it isn't... UA's E+ seats are identical to standard economy seats and the service (food etc.) is also the same. The only difference is that you get about 4"-5" extra legroom. The following seat map shows the difference clearly:

http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Uni...ited_Airlines_Boeing_757-200_A.php

I personally like E+ since it doesn't cost me extra (I can get on it with my Star Alliance Gold card). As for taking more pictures of the cabin, see my replies to Flypdx. I'm basically a bit embarrassed taking picture with people around.

Hey there! hehehe . . .good looking food . . . especially that inedible stale roll. tough part is the cold hard butter that one can never spread onto it! I've never sat in E Plus. If you do have a chance to take UA again, and are on E Plus, could you please take a pic? thanks!  Smile Curious to see how much more space one can really get on E Plus. United domestic First on those 757's are a bit of a joke. It's really like flying Premium Econ. The plus behind is the very comfy seat. Other than that, not much big deal about it.

I got really confused then realised this report was posted in June 2005....AA767LOVER is doing his best to bump up every report that is more than two years old...there are quite a few out there now.

Thank you for the trip report! This has to be one of my most favorite domestic routes because it is so long! E+ makes this a nice flight. I flew this route in June 2006 on my way to HKG and they weren't offering meals at that point.

So UA is back to offering meal service on its transcons or is it just E+ Transcons

Wow, United serves hot meals on BOS-SFO? Do they do the same on BOS-LAX? I know they cut hot meals on p.s. flights.

This report was posted June 2, 2005. United does not serve "free" food in Economy or Economy-Plus on its domestic flights. They do have Buy on Board. What a difference two years makes.

My only complaint was that the audio was cut off just before take off and came back 10 mins afterwards, so I missed all the Ch 9 action as we were taxiing and taking off. Bummer

Interesting...as you know, 175 left (from gate C19...hence the flag above the jetway) from BOS, and maybe they turn off Ch. 9 for a brief time leaving BOS for that reason? I don't know..maybe just a coincidence.

Sorry, I'm obviously missing something here..anyone care to enlighten me?? something security related?



Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.
