As noted above - UA has been doing this for years, largely serving secondary markets all over Europe. While maybe not quite 9 hours, it allows them to serve all sorts of places non-stop from the East Coast - I've done IAD-MAN, EWR-TXL and others, and am about to do DUB-ERW (shorter).

Up front, the cabin is outfitted like any other business class cabin, in economy it's frankly no more or less cramped that the INTL two-aisle birds. It's going to be miserable no matter what, and I don' really think that a single aisle adds to that misery.
