George,

yes, that´s right, UAL cards state "overwater" except when all planes of that type are in overwater config (777 and 744 at UAL).
I always wondered why US carriers don´t put life vests on all their planes. You can ditch in a river or lake or something, I mean, this has happened! In Europe every plane has life vests.
(perhaps I should start a new thread on that?)
