|Quoting Stitch (Reply 7):|
UA always has at least two 777's serving SEA:
UA875 travelling SEA-NRT
UA876 travelling NRT-SEA
UA usually also has a 777 flying ORD-SEA in the morning and one flying SEA-DEN in the evening. The routing was usually SEA-ORD-NRT-BKK on the outband and then a different plane would usually fly BKK-NRT-SEA-DEN-ORD inbound.

The morning arrival 777 has switched between ORD and DEN...
From what I know, they aren't able to fill the premium cabins on morning departures to SEA.
However during one schedule, the 777 that flew NRT-SEA turned around and flew SEA-NRT.
UA could probably increase fleet utilization by dumping the domestic 777 flights and doing a turn NRT-SEA-NRT, which can be done with a single airplane, since that is what Northwest does.
