UA LAX-IAD: F(2-class) C(3-class) Which Is Better?

Wed Jun 12, 2002 5:49 am

I have some miles expiring soon. It's good for a LAX-IAD roundtrip on UA. (either first class on a 2-class aircraft or business class on a 3-class aircraft)

Which is the better choice? I haven't flown on UA in a while.(my company only uses CO & DL)

Thanks for any suggestions.

If I were making that choice I'd go with C on a 777 -- I think those business class seats are superior to the F seats on the UA narrow-bodies. Food will still be good, might not get as many courses, though. Hope that helps -- I'm surprised you haven't received more responses, as these kinds of queries generally lead to long threads...

Domestic First on a 2 class plane is the same as Domestic Biz class on a 3 class plane. The inflight service should be identical. The seat however is a better choice on the 3 cabin plane. I assume that you'll be taking a 777, which features PTVs, headrests, footrests and so on. You wont be disapointed.

The C on a 3 class is far superior to a F on 2 class, especailly if it is a 777 or 747. The 3 class goes on to international service and it is a far better seat then a domestic 2 class.

The seats have been commented on. The 3-class aircraft has the PTV. As for the service, it is identical, maybe even better on the 2 class aircraft, Here's why. The 3-class aircraft, although an international plane, will be staffed with a domestic crew of FAs. Service, for that reason, should be identical.

Now, as for intangibles, in business class, you are still below first class in terms of the flight crew's priority. In first class you are "top dog." You will get better service, I would bet, in first on a 757, then in business on a 777.

My two cents

(As an NRSA I made this trip often, and always chose the 777 because I loved the then-new planes. Now, for service, I would choose first class.)

Without a doubt, take the 3-class aircraft in C.

Biz on a 3class is far better, not even close!

I actually prefer F in a 757 to C or F in *any* 767, be it the damned 600X birds or the -300s. C in a 777 or 744 is awesome as it's a full size seat, whereas they are alot smaller in the 67 fleet. I think it should be based on the type of a/c really...
