FWIW - I flew 1A in Nov 2013 IAD-FCO on this aircraft. I purchased my ticket well in advance, about 7 months, when the seat map was completely empty. Right after purchasing, I had been watching the seat map nearly every other day prior to departure. Seat 1B had remained blocked even up until T-24, with all other seats being filled in and claimed by T-24. Around T-6, 1B opened on the UA mobile app seat map. Right before the door closed, the seat map went full on the app, and an off-duty plain clothed cabin crew member boarded and sat in 1B the entire way to FCO.

Service in 6D

I sat in 6D last year and had the feeling that I was getting served near last during most courses. I had thought that the back rows were serviced by the middle galley so that service would be fast. But flight attendants seemed to be making their way from front to back and serving the right and left sides more promptly than the D seats. Was this normal or an anomaly? I'll be flying the 764 again later this year. I like the D seat generally but didn't like the late service.

Seems nobody answered your question, do you have answer after your trip? As I have the same question... Also the rows are not aligned based on the seat map, is 2D closer to 2K or 3K?

The middle seats step out into the port side aisle, so you'd definitely want to pair with AB. As for row alignment I'm pretty sure it's off by about half a seat due to the closets (and one fewer seat) in the middle section.

If I recall correctly I think having the pair behind the single would be easier since 1) the single seat angles to port making it easier to look over ones should to speak, and 2) this will make it so the "B" seat is not blocking the line of sight between the A and D seats.

In other words: 2AB+1D, 3AB+2D, etc.

If that's not available I don't know whether 2DKL or 2D+3KL is better, there the alignment might be better with the latter while the angling would suggest the former.

Personally I shy away from these seats, but if you're OK with the tradeoff there's plenty of leg room.
Appreciate your post, I was trying to decide if I wanted to move out of my E+ Aisle to 28A and this convinced me to stay where I am

I just had my first ride on the 767-400ER, in seat 1K. The light and noise from the galley was noticeable, even when the meal service was finished. While I appreciated the larger foot well, I think in the future I may go for a row further back.

And let's say I'm not impressed by the layout, especially the two lavs to the rear of the J cabin for use by 39 J pax plus crew.

1B opened up at the 24 hour mark on a recent HNL-EWR, no middle rows were available so grabbed it versus a seat in the back.
Now if only UA didn't play tricks and time the flight 10 minutes after the dinner cutoff time hehe

I'm taking this plane for EWL-HNL and HNL-EWR with my wife and 4-year old daughter.

Do you happen to know... row 28 DEF, does it have legroom enough for a child to play quietly on the floor? Or are these bulkhead seat overrated on this plane? I'm wondering if the ~$400 total upgrade for all three seats.

Also, what was the price to upgrade to first class for you at that 24 hour mark? (I'm a mile-less dreamer )

Row 28DEF is a standard bulkhead. I wouldn't say there is "extra" legroom. A small child might be able to sit on floor and use the seat cushion as a table, but they won't be able to do much other than that. It does give them a little extra room and I think it would be easier for adults to manage the child and not disrupt people in front of you.

Thanks! My last time flying with wife and daughter on this route was on HA51 JFK to HNL (A330); we snagged 11a and 11b which had SO much room. I'm guessing these wouldn't quite compare...

I recently was in 1L and had a similar impression. I felt the FAs could have done a better job of keeping the curtain closed. That said getting served first is pretty nice, as is the flat area on top of the monitors where you can place extra stuff during the flight (pillow, blanket, etc.)

I found that FA's use the shelf in row 1 as a staging/storage area for snacks/supplies on 764 and 787 flights.

flew on this bird for the first time yesterday when our 772 got swapped for a 764. I was in 16L, which is my favorite seat in Y+ on the pmco 777. I didn't have any issues with legroom (which was less than on the 772) but the proximity to the galley and BF lav was definitely a noticeable downgrade on the 764. The bait-switch was kind of a PITA

Can anyone recommend where to sit for a better shot at a preferred meal choice when seated in J? I'm taking a 764 domestically and will be coming onto the flight with no time to grab real food beforehand, and would at least like my preferred meal choice.

Thanks!

Anyone know from experience that can help me with this? Thanks in advance..

Flying EWR-GVA in a few months - flying with my wife, so will be sitting on the side and not the middle seats. Would middle of the J cabin be best in terms of quiet / being able to get some sleep on the overnight?
