Just flew 764 for the first time today HNL-SFO in 4D (single middle aisle). Nice aircraft (No. 3065), still feels brand new. Seating a bit challenging. The footwell was really small. Definitely going to be a challenge for anyone approaching 6 feet to stretch out fully. I did not like the middle aisle with traffic on both sides and the floor shaking every time someone walked by on either side.

Any issue being next to the lavs? Also, what about the windows? Are there slides that protrude into the leg space?

I'm a 1k and flying on a 767-4 to HNL. I have 2 questions. How good is E+ on these planes? My upgrade ratio has been good so I normally get upgraded. 2nd question do people consider the bulkhead seats the best In coach on this type of metal? I'm 6'4 and hate people reclining into my knees.

The non-stop EWR-HNL flight is not eligible for CPU. I think you can use an RPU or GPU or miles + copay. I'm 5'9" and I found the BF seats to be just the right size, I think at 6'4" you might still feel squished. If sitting in coach I would go for a bulkhead seat, it's a very long flight.

Sorry. I'm new here... CPU?

aacharya Aug 6, 13 10:53 am

There are no free upgrades on EWR-HNL.

E+ is the same as others, but no benefit of Row 12/20 (non-reclining).

I personally don't like bulkheads - the armrests are locked, and people are always in the bathroom line. Having said that, Row 16 should be safe - as the lavs in front "should" be reserved for folks in BF, and no lines in Y.

Complimentary upgrades.

sanfran8080 Aug 6, 13 11:09 am

Very True. Last time I was on this flight I flew 1st. Times have gotten tough so I have to gut it out in coach. I have enough miles for award travel but round trip is 11k miles gets me over my MM marker.

Did you recently status match from another airline? I find it interesting a United 1K doesn't know what a CPU is. Moving from E- to E+ is not an "upgrade" if that's what you're referring to. E+ is available to 1Ks at booking.

In fact, almost a UA million miler as well! Maybe CPU is a bit more esoteric versus plain old "upgrade"? Either way, can't get one on that route. I'm a big 16K fan on that route (did it EWR-EZE and back since GPU did not clear in either direction), even though SeatGuru seems to disagree.

lensman Aug 10, 13 12:10 am

Is there power in E- on the 764s or just E+?

Under "amenities" it says power is available in all rows but the seat map in the Inflight Services>Aircraft section of united.com only shows a dot in E+ rows. OTOH the table says that F, E+ and E- all have power and USB ports.

Well as a Delta flyer who has come over to United in the past 12 months, United has far the most frequencies to the Islands. EWR, DEN, IAH, ORD x 1 and SFO and LAX x 3 or 4 and that is just to HNL. They also serve the other islands from SFO and LAX and I believe DEN more than any other carrier.

jerseygirl Aug 11, 13 6:58 pm

For ewr hnl direct, right now have 2am, where are the lavs? Seat guru has them not in front but in back, would prefer to be in first row but only if not right in back of lavs
But on united site there are lavs both in front and back

The lavatories for BF are located behind the BF cabin, immediately in front of E+. There are no lavatories at the front of the aircraft.

No lavs in the front or the back? Not a good config.

jerseygirl Aug 12, 13 12:30 am

Thanks, but then the united seat plan is not correct

What do you mean? I posted the UA seat plan, and it shows the lavs positioned in front of and behind the E+ cabin.

Look at seat plan for ewr to hnl, not the one you posted

love_to_travel Aug 12, 13 1:32 am

14940674 posted the correct information.

The lavatories in front of row 1, marked with the green Xs below, do not exist.

If you are sitting in the front of a 767-400ER then your lavatory is behind row 8 and directly in front of row 16. They will rope off access to those lavatories from E+ (poor chaps).

I really like 1D when traveling solo, so its quite a march back when the time comes :p

Woohoo! ^

United Airlines + HNL = winnahs!

(sorry HA, but if you had a better hard product and your FF program didn't suck, I wouldn't like United so much)

jerseygirl Aug 12, 13 7:32 am

Thanks for the correct seat plans

PedroNY Aug 23, 13 12:14 pm

So if it is 3 of us traveling, in Business First (2 parents + 1 child). Do you recommend A,B + D or D + K, L? Just wondering what people thing about that one. Appreciate it.

Best,

PedroNY

Plane just switched from sUA 772 to sCO 764. What's better in E+ - 16AB or 28AB? Seatguru claims bulkhead has restricted legroom but I've learned to take those comments with a grain of salt - is it actually less than other E+ seats or is it more?

Is power regular 110v outlets? Seatmap indicates no power in 28 but power in 16. If I'm not particularly tall, (5"7 and wife is shorter,) and power is important - it would seem 16 is the best option in Y. Correct?

drewguy Sep 28, 13 8:47 pm

I sat row 16 a couple weeks ago. Leg room is okay but nothing great. Like any bulkhead there's nothing to stretch your legs under, but you have room to begin with.
Row 28 had loads of legroom and I would consider it next time, although the A seat has to deal with the slide a bit.

joshwex90 Sep 29, 13 12:36 am

Does 28 have power?

More room than regular E+ seats?

drewguy Sep 30, 13 8:04 am

Row 28 has loads of legroom because there's an exit door. I found Row 16 a touch more roomy, but not by a wide margin. But I'd take it over regular E+ seating for sure.

joshwex90 Sep 30, 13 8:10 am

Right - I figure 28 would have lots more. I meant specifically 16, as I'm not interested in the door protruding, and I'd like to be near the front, so I think 16 it is. Thanks

Sat there last week, def much better than e+.
I'm 6'3" and I liked the seat, a lot.

So why is that a rolling of the eyes?

tracon Oct 5, 13 4:06 pm

8A and I assume L, only have one window. You need to lean forward to look outside.

Flying FRA-IAH and currently have 1D. Have other folks noticed the shaking floor at this seat? I'm usually a window guy so this is about as adventurous as I get.

criostal Oct 12, 13 11:58 am

I did not notice floor shaking while in 1D yesterday. Overall the traffic past the seat was variable and mostly flight crew as they changed rest shifts. The main issue I had sitting there was that the top of the video monitor became the snack station for the flight. This meant lots of interrupted sleep as other passengers stopped by my seat for a snack, often leaning into my seat. The setup also led to trash accumulation on my seat monitor shelf. Not sure why the snack station can't be setup to the side of the aisle either in the front or rear of the J cabin as is done on the 777.

Overall, the seat itself was OK, but I would definitely not choose it again because of this disturbance.

Kacee Oct 28, 13 11:00 pm

Red-eye SFO-IAD on the 764. Currently I'm in 1L, based on footwell size and no lav traffic. Rows 6-7-8 also available (on the sides, not the middle). What do people think - stick with 1L?

I'd stick with 1L for the footwell size. I have size 9 feet and the normal footwell size is tiny even for me. May I ask if you CPUed or RPUed?

I'm hoping the galley noise won't be too bad.

Z fare connecting to SJU. It looked like the CPU was going to be close.

Bulkhead biz seats
 
I just flew in seat 1L EWR-HNL and was quite disappointed. In is far too close to the galley and although there is a curtain, it was never closed more than 3/4 and was often less than 1/2 closed. There is a closet located next to seat 1K that was used very often and each time, the FA's backside was inches away from the passenger in seat 1K. Although the foot well size is much larger, I will now avoid these bulkhead biz seats because of the constant galley activity, talking among FAs, etc.

The seat is quite short in the lie-flat position. I'm 6' and my head was nearly touching the end and when laying on my back, my feet were touching the end of the foot well. So, a smaller footwell size really won't make much of a difference to me.

Service on this flight was the worst I've ever experienced on UA, in fact it was non-existent for half of the flight.
