Disagree...I'm 6'3" with size 11.5 feet and I slept like a baby in the 764 bulkhead BF seat EWR--FCO in July.

The big losers here might be UA nonrevs, as they were when UA aligned with CO and adopted CPUs.

I recall FC was called "Employee Class" on pmUA by some.

Absolutely. I routinely pay with $$$ and miles to upgrade to BF on pmCO 772s, 764s, 752s, and 788s. Won't pay a dime to upgrade on pmUA 772s and 763s.

The same could be said of people who do a full power recline with no regard for the passenger behind them. Therein lies the rub.

Put a governor on the recline mechanism. The fact that some rather inconsiderate/ignorant folks recline at warp speed seems to be a key factor.

While international FC (GF on United) certainly has its ardent supporters, the market appears to be saying that it's a product that isn't paying its way on many routes.

I think you missed the 22 or so pmCO 772s with 50 BF seats only (which I find to be just fine, by the way).

I thought of that. Perhaps some folks who regularly buy J will chime in and indicate if they'll switch airlines if GF goes away.

How many folks actually buy GF with $$$$ versus buy C and upgrade or use miles? If the percentage of people who buy is relatively low then perhaps UA should utilize the cabin space more efficiently....

If my edit to your post clarifies what you mean, it would be interesting to know if it's true. Probably have to search the AA/DL fora to find out.

Many/most here would disagree with the premise that an award isn't a paid ticket...it's just a different currency. Not sure if the airlines agree with the FlyerTalkers.

Seems like you're giving up quite a few seats if you go 1-2-1. 2-2-2 seems like an acceptable compromise to me.
