UA 772 on SFO/BOS/SFO

Wed Dec 14, 2016 1:23 am

Just saw this once daily r/t. Very good marketing on BOS/SFO, as 6:10pm departure is within 20 minutes of both Virgin America and JetBlue. Is this new?

Has been running for a couple of months now. I flew it last month and we were completely full with ~365 peeps on board. Running this flight with the high density, domestic configuration....

Must be the only domestic 777 movement in BOS. Is UA trying to beat away B6 and VX?

Was actually checking the westbound connections the other day on this to see how many were connecting to SYD/AKL/SIN, and noticed it is carrying about 80-90% O&D on the couple of days I checked. UA is sure running a lot of capacity between the 2 cities.

Not sure if true, but is this the only domestic 777 movement in the US not going hub-hub?

UA is also flying EWR-SJU on the 772, and there are, of course, the Hawaii and GUM routes. But I wouldn't be surprised if UA put these domestic 772s on another other hub - non-hub route or two once the reconfigurations are finished.

Probably making a statement before DL enters the market in the spring. I was surprised to see this as well landing in BOS the other day. But in the end it will do much better westbound into the winds as I think Virgin has been taking fuel stops over the past week and JetBlue has been taking a very northerly start to the journey west.

There was a thread around a month ago and it was discussed that SAN could be a possible non-hub station to see the domestic 772 in the future. The only other line stations I could see getting the 772 would be FLL, MCO and LAS during peak. Perhaps CUN?

Obviously HNL and OGG are line stations but they are already no stranger to the 772. Perhaps they'll bring SFOOGG back once they're all converted to HDC.

Apparently (unless I've missed some) all these flights are being run by UA-original 777s...none of the CO-acquired birds seem to be part of the mix. UA pulls the 777 soon from BOS-SFO but starting sometime in 2017 it will be 2x daily on the route.

What's the configuration on the domestic 777's? Are the business class seats lie-flat or are they like the 737's and A320's?

28 lie flat F seats in a 2x4x2 configuration
336 economy seats in a 3x4x3 configuration.

As I recall, UA will be re-configuring the older, pmUA 772s for domestic use across the CONUS and to Hawaii. 10 abreast in coach....

Interesting to see the capacity on SFO/BOS and, at the same time, that UA is down to 1 daily between BOS/LAX.

Correct. The 77As will go to ten abreast, including the reconfig of the remaining ones in the IPTE (intl) configuration when they're converted to domestic. The 77Ws are obviously being delivered 10 abreast Y. I don't believe word is official on whether or not the 77E fleet will be retrofitted to ten across, but I think it's probably a matter of time.

Before JetBlue came along, AA pretty much 'owned' BOS-LAX and UA pretty much 'owned' BOS-SFO. That's just been the trajectory in both markets. Aside from one 'token' flight, UA doesn't much bother with BOS-LAX and AA doesn't AT ALL bother with BOS-SFO.

Personally I would have thought these two markets would be more on a par with each other than they are. BOS-LAX is dwarfed by BOS-SFO in terms of number of seats. And, I think despite the high number of seats, it's a very profitable route! It has to be the tech sector providing all that demand. For a big conference at Moscone I'll be doing the 757-300s in January.

77A will be doing some extra sections SFO-LAS in early January as well, for the electronics show I believe. Otherwise SFO-ORD/DEN/EWR/IAD/BOS and an occasional LAX for now.

The international 772s will go 3x4x3 in Y/C when they go in for Polaris conversion. J will be 50 seats forget what Y/C would be.

I wasn't sure if it was official or not, but either way it seemed destined to happen. There's just too much inertia behind 10 across Y on the 777 now. In my opinion, something like that is only tolerable on a domestic config -- maybe even TATL -- but it's just too cramped on long stages to Asia/Australia. My only experience with it was on the AC 77W "slaveship" config, and I was miserable. UA better follow DL's lead and start throwing free booze at pax, because that's the only way I can see it as being tolerable on a long flight.
