Apologies, I haven't been monitoring this thread for very long. How long have the Polaris mods at HKG historically taken for the ex-CO 772s? I note that there are a couple there now, and one is...

Nice to see this one get a facelift, though I do wish they'd just quit operating out of Terminal A entirely. =)

United's YYT service is pretty inconsistent and baffling. The amount of traffic they cede to AC by down-gauging to UAX over the winter months has never failed to mystify me.

I have received an OpUp on LH from Y to J as a *G on intra-European flights, but never on long-haul.

At 6' 1", I didn't find them any better or worse than the pmCO BF seats that the OP would be in out of IAH on this route. The service is noticeably better, as are the mid-flight snacks (try the...

Fair enough, thanks for the reply. Guess we'll see. My last TATL flight of the year was on LH (purchased on 016 stock and originally bought under the UA codeshare number; only swapped to the LH...

I thought the purpose of the profit-sharing agreements with LH on TATL routes was to address this.

Am I incorrect? Does it honestly matter (for GS qualification) if I book LH or UA on a route...

I was also not allowed to pick a seat until check-in, even though my GPU cleared about 36 hours in advance of the flight. Not sure why. I had two LH flights on this particular itinerary (MAN-FRA...

Wow, lots of changes at EWR. I, too, will miss the Garden State and the Vino Volo. Not so much with the Gallagher's. Is Le Grand Comptoir still in C3? They have pretty good salads.

I would love to see more retrojets in pre-merger UA (tulip) and old school CO (meatball) colors. There's no reason not to continue to honor the proud history of both carriers.

Hard to say. When I booked the flight, it was F=3. When my waitlist cleared, it was F=2. The cabin flew at 7 seats of 8 full.

I'd like to think you'll have an easier time clearing into...

I'll take that bet; Houston's economy runs on a lot more than energy now. 1982 was a long time ago.

63 minutes for a domestic-to-international connection at IAH should be adequate. The early departure from IAD works in your favor as there shouldn't be any major delays at that hour of the day given...

At 6' 1", this is expressly why I raise the headrest and leave it there for takeoff and landing in these seats. To do otherwise is just begging for a case of whiplash.

If you don't intend to fully lie flat, you should be comfortable almost anywhere. The non-bulkhead seats likely won't make a huge difference to you (I am 6'1").
