United BusinessFirst Newark To Hong Kong

Sat Dec 31, 2011 7:01 am

Hello Everyone,

I recently returned from China and am slowly adjusting to a U.S. timezone. I had a little time to put together some of my video clips to make this report. Most of the flight was in the dark and I slept most of it, as I had only slept a few hours before starting my journey on a MFE-IAH-EWR route at 5:30am.

I will forewarn you that some of the clips are on the dark side, my cheapo HD camera is not good at all for low light video.

Here is a little information on the flight. Hope you enjoy the video, thanks for watching.

Thank you for the very interesting video.
UA C looks great. But their long haul Y is below mediocre.

I can't imagine spending 16 hours with 31" legroom and lousy sub par meals. To Asia in Y I would pick an Asian carrier.

Nice TR! How did you score this ticket? Did you use miles or splurge with cash?

Great TR.

Just curious, if your flight was very bumpy, it seemed like you got tossed around a bit.

It was moderate turbulence. I am not very steady with the cam, so probably that causes it to seem like it was heavier turbulence than it actually was. On my trip back to the U.S. I took a United 747 that was in heavy turbulence throughout the flight. I will post that trip report when I have some time to put the clips together. You will clearly see the engines move heavily as the 747 was tossed around. Thanks for watching.
