On UA, there's a decent chance that a couple purchasing a last minute full fare ticket could be stuck in 2 middles. I don't see that as endearing future premium spend

I was simply responding to the statement "I would much prefer LH's old C over being stuck in a seat with no direct aisle or window access." The fact is, on LH's 744 with old C, you can very well be stuck in the middle "with no direct aisle or window access."

In any event, for an overnight flight, I would take a middle lie-flat on the 772 over any angled-lie flat on LH.
