Please to rank the following sets of seats:

- 16ABKL
- 16DEF
- 28AL
- 26BK
- 26DEF

This depends on personal preference to some degree. I was on a recent flight in 17L and made the following observations.

All row 16 seats are bulkhead with same legroom. I would say you have more knee room than you would in other rows, but you can't slide feet under seat in front (of course), so that may make it feel less roomy. There's a fair degree of galley noise in Row 16 and 17.

Row 28 DEF appears to be the same as Row 16DEF in terms of distance from seat to bulkhead.

Row 28AL are "window" seats with a modest slide protrusion-maybe 6 inches. The legroom is still decent even with that, and you could angle your legs. The seats are near the lavs, so there's that as a drawback.

Row 28BK are aisle seats with nearly infinite legroom because of exit row, although infinity can be cut short by people waiting for lav.

One other note on Row 16AL and 17AL - both have a window gap, meaning that there's only one window instead of two, towards the front of the seat area. The rear is just wall, which means if you lean your head against the wall while sleeping you may prefer it as compared to having a window.

Hey all, on the 764's , specifically flight 73 SFO-HNL, do they board/deboard at the 2nd door (closer to the wing) behind row 8 or at the front door 1?

Thanks!

Depending on the gate in both SFO & HNL it will either be 2L or both 1L & 2L.

Personal video screens in rows 16/28?
 
Hi all - My husband and I will be flying on the UA15 EWR-HNL in a few months. Just wondering if there are personal video screens for Seats 16AB/16KL and Seats 28AB/28KL? (Still trying to figure out which row is best)

From the pictures and YouTube videos, it kind of looks like there is only one video screen for both seats, rather than two seperate video screens?

Individual, in armrest (or unfolds up from).

How does the 764 BF seat compare to the 772 pmCO seat for an intl flight? Are they pretty much the same? I seem to recall reading a thread either praising the 764 or saying to avoid it. Search hasn't been too helpful since it wont accept 3 letter words

Pretty much the same.

Same basic seat but narrower and much shorter. Footwells are a real problem in non-bulkhead seats.

SeaRaptor Jun 4, 14 2:36 pm

I love the 764s in BF, but the more I fly them, the more I notice the width and length differences versus the 772s (in the pmCO BF seat). I am 6' 1" and primarily a side sleeper, and they can be a little cramped. I sleep okay, just not as good as the bulkhead seats on the 772s.

eng3 Jun 4, 14 5:12 pm

I thought the bulkhead just gave you more width (at the feet). Does it give you more length as well? I always try to get the bulkhead on the pmco BF seats anyways

No one said the bulkhead seats are longer. However, the larger footwell is equivalent to a longer seat.

Indeed. Well, unless you're a pointy mermaid.

Well, flew in 1D. The seat feels narrow, but oddly not as short as I thought. The top of the IFE was used as the snack area, but I slept most if the way and didn't notice until I saw it myself. Honestly, it made it easy to get a snack since I didn't have to get up.

Would I fly it again, maybe, but I think window seats provide a better place to prop up your arm when sleeping. Also, it's really easy for drinks to be tipped over as traffic moves through the noticeably narrow aisles. One must keep alert. I finally used the cup holder by the mesh pocket behind and to the right.

I'm booked in 1A for IAD-ZRH bc row 1 is supposed to have the most space, but I'm worried about the noise from the galley given this an overnight flight (i.e., the chatter from the FAs or the clanging from the prep). Any thoughts?

RJ1 Jul 14, 14 6:21 pm

Next month I am travelling IAH-MUC-IAH in BF on a 767-400. Since this is from IAH, would this be pmCO?

We have seats 4A,B and 3A,B.

Yes. There is only one 764 config, and it is pmCO.

eng3 Aug 12, 14 3:35 pm

I'm not a huge fan of the plane. Seats are shorter I think. I sit in the first row to get the bigger foot hole, but since I'm a window guy, I think I may lose something from the curvature of the plane in the front. You also get some more noise and light from the galley. The middle front seat doesnt seem to have any advantage as far as I can tell. I still can't get a decent night sleep in the lie flats.

Also, there are no individual vents. For some reason, I'm always either sweating or too cold. I'd rather it be too cold (since I can just put on a blanket). There's nothing like sweating through your shirt and knowing you are stuck there for the next 6hours

Economy Footrests on UA's 767-400ER to Europe
 
I apologize if this has been raised before,but cannot find info on UA site or elsewhere. Anyone know if there are footrests in regular coach on this aircraft. Will carry my own portable one if not, but don't want to lug it around unless necessary.

IAH-OIL-TRASH Aug 14, 14 3:15 pm

No footrests. And you can't claim your significant other as carry-on :)

ellienyc Aug 14, 14 3:28 pm

Thanks for that. Figured as much, but thought I ought to check

FlytheTail Aug 14, 14 3:58 pm

Not sure there would be any room for your own footrest. If so, both your feet and the footrest would have to be very small.

Does any airline offer footrests in coach (not including premium economy)? I've never flown on one.

Singapore Air does offer foot rests in Y. Very nice for us short people.

Do you have suggested one? a link to such a product?

OZ as well. At least on the new 380.

eng3 Aug 14, 14 5:11 pm

Well, you'll probably be forced to stuff your carryon under the seat so I guess that can serve as the foot rest

I always use my carry on as a footrest!!!

In my first D seat in BF. Hate, hate, hate it. It's the opposite of privacy IMHO, I feel every person and cart that passes. Almost had a shawl knock a glass of champaign into my lap. Give me a seat mate any time - 1A now officially and forever my favorite seat on the plane.

I was just on the 764, and while I didn't have a D seat, I tend to agree with you that sitting in those seats would be like being "on display".

I didn't like it either. I found the aisle traffic super annoying and can't imagine sleeping in it on a long-haul.

One of the biggest YMMV seats in the fleet though, as there are members here who really like it.

Put me as one of those who really like them. I've slept in D seats multiple times, and I love to ability to get served and get out of the seat from both sides. I never felt I had a problem with privacy.

FTstudent Sep 8, 14 8:01 pm

1D is pretty much my go to seat. Agree that you gotta keep an eye on your drink, especially during boarding.
My second favorite BF seat, only second to 1D on the 787. Could be my imagination, but felt like they pushed the foot cubby forward just a few hairs on the 787 making the seat slightly longer.

JVPhoto Sep 8, 14 10:03 pm

As a solo traveler I love D on the 764 and have never had a problem with traffic or sleeping.

Fully agree - folks clearly go both ways but I'm not a fan and if you like being cozy and having a bit of a buffer from the traffic you might want to think twice about D. Part of the problem is the zig-zag aisle shape defined by the angled seats, I think. The FAs are clearly very good at working in this space but it seems to make some pax (me included) stagger down the aisle like a drunken soldier!

Kacee Oct 4, 14 10:50 am

I just did 1B to HNL. The footwell is nice, but there are two negatives with this seat. First, the aisle is particularly narrow right there b/c of the closet on the other side and if you use the armrest you will get bumped by the FA's. Second, you look right into the galley at the jumpseat area. This is where the FA's congregate after meal service and they were pretty loud on this flight. I think I would take 1A, 1K, or 1L all over 1B. With the windows probably getting the slight edge because there's no galley light issue in those seats.

While Kacee is exactly right, I flew with my SO recently in 1K and 1L - and felt that 1A/1B pair would have been better (could have been the case of grass is greener). In 1K, you get the nice footwell, but you are sitting two feet from a closet that is constantly being used, and feel like you sitting in the aisle, which curves right around your knee. I also had a great view of a FA that sat in the galley jumpseat reading a book for about 80% of the flight (with lights on, of course).

My go to seat in this plane is 1D, but that is a matter of personal preference (I need the large foot well and bulkhead is wide, so it blocks the galley light - and alleviates privacy concerns.)

Okay, so it's 1A and 1L (and 1D if you like the middle) :D

SFO 1K Nov 5, 14 2:05 am

If you could choose 1A or 1L, is one better? For example, I would think 1A sees more traffic during boarding, and potentially more crew noise due to the jump seat at door 1 Left. Also, is 1B reserved for assignment until day of departure? I've noticed it un-assignable on multiple seat maps.

Kacee Nov 5, 14 10:05 am

Not really. It depends on which side of the galley the FAs congregate to chat after meal service ;)

767-400 BF which row
 
Hello,

I am looking at an empty BF seat map...which row would you recommend to have a quite ride and have space ?

Row 1 or better in the middle row 4?

Thank you for your input!
