Yeah, the space in front of 1D on a 764 also can be a hallway during boarding if not blocked. Really annoying is when someone uses it during the flight. Passing in front of 1D is OK, but not 2D?

It's an awful configuration.

If you're ever on it again, ask the FAs if they're willing to put up the bassinets for you during cruise. It helps if you bundle some blankets to look like a baby as no one wants a screaming child on a flight ;)

I don't know. I really enjoy screaming children on my flights. 🤣

Are you related to my wife? That's something she would do and then apologize profusely so the poor passenger who tripped would have no clue that she did it on purpose.

But we have been warned that the seats we chose on the 2-class 772 is also considered by some passengers as a pass-through. I will have to make sure she behaves......

It appears the last three rows of AB and the last two of KL are going away in the 767-400ER as of later this month. Does anyone know what's up? Making room for crew seats, perhaps? Would this tend to make 41AB (the new back row of AB) a more appealing or less appealing option?

If you were 6'0" tall and fairly sensitive to noise, which seat would you choose? Aircraft swap for tonight from 763 to 764 and J is booked at 21/39. Thanks.

I would keep 1A. The tiny footwell bothers me more than potential galley noise. These seats are really short.

On the plane now. No, no air vents. The business seats are really crammed. Very disappointed in the late substitution of a UA 763 for a CO 764.

Better than some, worse than others. The 2-3-2 configuration is nice because if you're traveling as a couple you can get a two seat block to yourself. Also you can do what I like to do which is pick an aisle in E+ and hope for an empty middle. They have decent enough PTVs and the planes are newer than the 763s and some of the 777s so they're fairly pleasant inside. Here are some pictures from one I flew in 2015:

IMO (assuming no empty seats) the 767s are the best ride on United in Y, except for the E45s.

I normally book aisle seats but I'm thinking that 16K is a bit exposed to aisle traffic. I think I read that L has no window so this gives a nice wall to sleep against. Plus it appears that the legroom is plenty to be able to get around my K seatmate.

Anyone have comments to keep me in K instead of L?

Since it is at the front of the cabin, I think the only "traffic" you'll experience will be when cabin crew are doing a drink/meal service (i.e. not that often).

I agree, but for sleeping, I'm thinking that the window affords a place to lean against and less disruptions from aisle traffic/carts/etc.

I always choose a window seat anyway, but if I want to sleep, I always always choose a window seat.
