FriendlySkies & MakeMinesLAX:
When I flew LAX
last summer (UA946), the LAX
leg was operated by a 747-400. There was a plane change at Dulles during the lay-over, however (it went to a 777). Both these flights were fantastic as my traveling party and I were able to be seated in United First! I believe the 747 we came in on from LAX
went back to LAX
as UA947 (the continuing leg of AMS
). As of right now, the entire route (LAX
) is operated by a 777, and after checking on United's SkyNet, the domestic leg is indeed operated by a 3-class 777 in both directions.
Our return flight was AMS
. The AMS
was a 767-300 (seated in Business this time), followed by a 2-class 767-300 ORD
(in United First).
I'm somewhat saddened that as of later this year UA946/947 IAD
will be downgraded to a 767-300 (as has been mentioned in another discussion) for the low season. It is interesting to note, though, that the LAX
portions of 946/947 will remain a 777.
Hope this clears up some information.
It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.
