Some of the 777s also look really worn out. Overall the 767s are in pretty good condition. They were modified in the late 90s to have the same seats as the 777 and 747 have (but the 767 seats are an inch narrower due to the smaller cabin width and UA
using a 2-2-2 configuration). I have been on clean and dirty versions of the 777 and 767. I like the 777 more because it is a wider cabin and the seats are wider although the pitch is roughly the same. But with the 777, you have the dreaded middle seat, which isn't very nice, but if I can get a seat by the window, then the 777 is better. Neither plane is ever really shabby, but they are not in perfect condition like you will see from high quality carriers like SQ
. I have seen much worse on other domestic flights. The 767s are decent even though they are judged as the worst international plane in UAs fleet.
The center bulkhead which is row 5 is the best for legroom in the 767. Other then that the seats are all the same, except for the last row on each side of the plane. Check http://www.seatguru.com

serves meals on flights over 2.5 hours that occur during meal times. Both IAD
flights are covered in meal times, but I don't know the latest, but usually flights over 750 miles will have a first class snack or meal and IAD
is around 900 miles. The snacks have never really been great, but I think they are fine for a nice quick meal. They keep changing stuff up, so maybe someone that actually works for them might be able to shed light on the newest levels of service. However up until recently I know that have been serving food on most flights from MCO
, and MIA
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
