um the 789 spec is 253 @ 7635. which routes? PER-LHR, IAH-SYD, SFO-SIN. Next question.
Stop spreading wrong information. Straight from Boeing website :
Also, SFO-SIN 290nm less than 7635nm, IAH-SYD is 165nm less. And UA configuration is 252 seats not 290 as per Boeing's specs.

That doesn't mean the normal A359 can't do SIN-AMS. They configure their A359s for 253 seats not to extend range but because the demand for J and PY is there. Their 77W are also configured at 264 seats. Doesn't mean they are putting less seats to extend range.
this is absurd. they would reconfigure a base 359/275 and send that. sin ams is only 5678 still air. they would not overpay for a 280t ulr and send that plane
the rason they fly ulr on routes is bc of range not magic premium demand that is only somehow on LAX but not SFO. the extra premium demand can be satisfied on ewr and lax because there is no nonstop alternative on either of those routes. the reason they send the 359ulr on any route is literally in the name of the model
If there is no demand for >42 business class seats, they'd be making loss operating the ULR on LAX instead of just blocking seats on the standard A359. If SFO had >42 J demand, they'd fly the ULR there as well or configure one of their standard A359 with higher J seat. My point is configuration has very little to do with maximum range, planes are configured as per demand in each classes.
