I recently flew the non-stop ORD-OGG flight with UA ... about 9.5 hrs. First time travelling with UA and first time on a 777! The seats were comfortable enough in regular economy. I was hoping the plane might be equipped with PTV's for such a long flight.

The flight from EWR to TLV is a little bit less than 10 hours, and the flight from TLV to EWR is about 12 hours.
