I don't do any international traveling at all so haven't seen any of these planes. I'm going to have to do this trip twice most likely to make it back to Ex Plat so I want to make sure I'm not suffering on the way over to NRT. Anyone have any thoughts? Should I try to take the extra day and extra $ of going through ORD or is going through LAX and being able to do this Fri-Sun just fine?

If it where me, I think I'd do LAX on the 777. $300 to ORD isn't exactly cheap for a milage run. I wouldn't be happy if I went all the way to Chicago and the SWU doesn't clear.

You'll probably have a better shot of upgrading on the 777. Plus you said you don't travel internationally so the old J seat will probably feel "nice" compared with first class domestic you usually fly from PHX.
