I just reserved myself a seat on UA947 from IAD to LAX on July 11. The travel agent told me that the equipment type would be a 747!! Alright! I have flown many times on 747s but each time it is a treat and I am really looking forward to this trip. It will be awesome I hope. Additionally, it is my first flight ever on United Airlines. I have heard some bad things about their service but I am hopeful that it will be a great flight.
Anybody else ever fly on this route? Is it usually a 747? Will it be a 744 or a 742?
I work as a pilot in Europe but I still get giddy about flying even as a pax on a Boeing 747! It is still exciting.
