UA # 867 IAD-LAX

Thu Jul 16, 2009 8:35 pm

I'm flying on this flight on the 4th of August. It is operated by a 777, will it be a Domestic Version with normal TV monitors or an International version with PTV's?

Well, I am not a UA insider, so this isn't a legit answer, but my experience:

I have flow LAX-IAD on UA777's, both in biz and coach classes. Both time, it was internationally configured, because it continued on to Europe.

It'll probably be be a 777-222, non-ER version.

As far as I know, the domestic configured ones usually go to Hawaii while most of the hub to hub flights in on international ones.

Thanks! My worry is I have heard that Airlines turn off the PTVs on domestic flights.

Not on my experience. What would the point be? They are already carrying around the weight of a PTV system, why not use it? It's a perk they are already paying for, might as well make the customer happy (and IFE makes a LOT of customers happy, myself included...I am flying one airline over another next week on a very long flight largely because one has better IFE than the other)

Not unless it is less than an hour flight, i.e. DEN-COS. And it is perfect for the F/As because it get people to shut up on the flight.

Wrong. Those go to Hawaii, and occasionally an SFO-ORD for repositioning UA1. They RARELY visit IAD at all since there is no nonstop to Hawaii from IAD.

I will probably be an XP 26XX plane (Asia Configured) since the early morning arrivals into IAD with the 777 is from KWI, DXB, and South America.

Its actualy an XI, and turns to 934 to LHR once it gets to LAX.

You're lucky you're not getting an A319. I flew one of those IAD-SFO a few years ago. One of the most cramped and uncomfortable 5 1/2 hours I ever spent in the air.
