You'll get a seat, earphones, a pillow, some snacks and drinks, afew movies, stewards and stewardesses and alot of co-travellers as well as some mileage on your personal account or even Frequent Flyer Programme. Enough?

United is the only major US airline that I have never flew on. I can't wait to someday though. I like their paint scheme (I know that doesn't tell much about the airline but...) and I hear that the flight attendants are friendly. I flew on a BA 777 and it was pure heaven just having the PTV and all of those music channels. Trust me... you'll love the 777. I once flew on a Northwest A320. It was really no big deal... you're average joe airplane only newer. I have never flown on a 767, but that is one of the planes that is on my wish list to fly on. All I can tell you about the 757 is that it is cool looking. It would be neat to ride on and I probably will someday I hope. Does United still have its 737-300s and 737-200s? Geez... kinda old for United. But then again... it still has some 747-100s. I have flown on America West 737-300s. I don't like them as much as I liked the A320, but they are again, pretty usual.

Although not long haul, I flew on a UAL 777 from Denver to Washington Dulles. It was nice to have your own personal TV in coach, but for some reason the DC10 I flew from Dulles to Denver the previous week was more comfortable. The seats seemed softer and that annoying headrest wasn't there. Some people like the headrest, but it gave me a headache.

To put it nicely... the seats in coach aren't the best   Some here know what I'm talking about..

Hi there.

I flew this year with United from Amsterdam via LHR /Chicago to Houston and back via Washington / LHR

I flew on the B777, B744, B732, B735 and I must say, I have no complain about the service onboard.
The crew is nice and friendly, food is good, so....
enjoy your UAL flight I would say.

Dear SABENA,
I flew last year with UA from BRU to DCA on 767 and than from DCA to DEN on 777. On my returnflight from DEN to DCA on 757 and back to BRU on 767.
I flew this trip only to be on 777 and it is a wonderful plane, magnificient. It is my favourite and everytime I go out for taking pictures, no 777 passes or I have a picture of it. You will certainly enjoy this plane.

Hi SABENA,
Do you have any idea when that Greek airline Axon comes into BRU ? I have seen the plane several times but never when I was spotting.
Thanks

You mean IAD, correct? Washington Dulles International Airport, Washington D.C., USA.
