On domestic flights, there is no business, so if you select business, you will just be booked in domestic first

This is not true. United offers three distinct classes of service on several routes, including JFK-SFO and JFK-LAX. There are also several routes with widebody three-class equipment; these vary throughout the year, but ones that have appeared frequently in the recent past and that I have flown include IAD-ORD (777, 763), ORD-SFO (777), and ORD-LAX (744). There have also been reports of 777s flying DEN-IAD, DEN-SFO, DEN-LAX, etc. At one point, UA was operating the 744 ORD-DEN.
The REASON the original poster sees business class as an offering on an A319/A320 flight is because it is a continuation of an international flight. United allocates seats in a variety of inventories in order to make connection pricing more seamless; in other words, a passenger on a D fare NRT-LAX can then connect on that same fare LAX-IAD instead of the system having to price out a discounted first class fare on the same itinerary. The same F/C/Y 'problem' shows up from time to time on 737 and 757 equipment. If it's widebody equipment, then there's a 99% chance it's actually three class service.

Yes, and sometimes they have 744s going LAX-DEN, and very rarely LAX-SFO. Still, the norm now is to have 2 class (Y+ excluded) aircraft on the routes. For example, you can select Business on MSY-LAX, but you will put in domestic first. If you get a 763, 744 or 2 class 777, yes, you can book a C class seat. On most domestic flights, however, you are in first. If you are continuing an international flight, you will be in domestic first whether you are coming off of a First or Business seat on the international

Well USG, given that the poster asked if this was possible on A319/A320s, Neil and I gave the right responses.

seems like a need to assert your knowledge, when in fact you obviously learned something from me and didn't have the grace to acknowledge that.

Um, you are kidding me, right?
|Quoting Ualflyer (Reply 12):|
Do you think I should book it. What do i do. If the prices get any higher i will be not able to fly. And if I book a business class seat and it isn't business i will be very unhappy.

I believe these are the only UA flights where no First class is sold.
