Which door is typically used for boarding / deplaning? Assuming both door 1 and 2 - looking at FRA specifically.

Always been 2L when I've flown it. They are pretty protective of anyone heading north of Row 1.

Looking for information on recommended BF row 6 or row 7 on UA 767-400ER VCE-EWR or can you suggest the appropriate thread?
Thanks

I would probably choose row 6. You'll be served from the rear galley (usually faster than the forward galley) but still further from the lavs.

Arg I'm in 1A for my entire itinerary except for 1L on the overnight segment where I want to sleep. Might have to sacrifice the larger footrest area and move back...

UA 767-400 - row 27 recline?
 
Hiya,
Does anyone know if row 27 on the UA 767-400 (economy seat, but last row in the E+ cabin) has limited recline?

I know seatguru suggests it does, but they always suggest that for all last rows. I like being able to recline without worrying who's behind, but equally don't want to be stuck in a seat with reduced recline for 10 hours.

I know 16 and 28 are the best E+ seats, but curious if anyone's sat in row 27 and can report on recline?

Cheers,

Kacee May 17, 16 8:31 am

Row 27 backs against the bulkhead right in front of the lavs. That's two reasons to avoid it . . . it will have limited recline and you'll have lav traffic and noises throughout the flight.

Question, what is the best solo traveler in business class after all the D seats have been taken? If I pick the window seat, is it hard to step over my neighbor? The flight is a 9-hour red eye.

1A/B. The larger footwells outweigh the potential light/noise from the galley.

You have to stepover from the window. Whether it's a hassle depends on how tall and/or nimble you are.

Thanks. End up with 1A. I'm about 5'11 tall.

I don't like the singles due to aisle traffic on both sides but that's a personal preference. Some people prefer them.

As a bulkhead, 1D will have a larger footwell and that's really critical for an overnight on this aircraft. The seats are otherwise very short.

televisor Jul 11, 16 7:10 pm

Not particularly important, and perhaps a rather ridiculous question: do the 767-400s all have no individual air vents?

My last 767-400 flight definitely didn't have any vents in Y, I think I remember not having one the previous flight too (but my memory is more hazy on that). I don't think I can remember any other UA aircraft without vents (I'm pretty sure I had them on a 2-class 763, admittedly I've not been on any UA 777 or 747s yet).

kimChee Oct 7, 16 6:47 am

Had the misfortune of flying this plane in 5K HNL-EWR, first time on united metal in about 5 years.

That foot well was torture. Unable to sleep, no comfort in any position.
If I were couple inches shorter maybe would be OK ( I'm 5'11). With the taper, room for only 1 foot. They need some memory form or padding on the hard plastic and metal. It was painful and uncomfortable.

Would never choose to fly this again. Would rather do DL via ATL or AA via DFW, even the old AA 763 slant flat is superior to this.

On a positive note, the food was pretty good. But no menu. No description of anything. DL not only has menu, but gives you (tumi) amenity kit on this domestic route....

Its because this is considered a regular domestic F flight even though its just as long as any TATL flight. It's the same menu and service as any domestic flight over 2.5 hours

It's not the same menu/meal service, it's in its own category (along with IAD-HNL and ORD-HNL), but it is domestic non-ps service, which means no printed menu. Domestic F Dining.

My flight attendants on both UA 144 and UA 145 were thoughtful enough to describe both the breakfast and dinner options to me. The female f/a were nicer than their male counterparts, which had an inordinate amount of attitude. I am 6'2" and was able to sleep on my side in 7L and 3A. That said, I prefer Delta's 767 first class configuration, 1-2-1.

Exleftseat Oct 17, 16 1:02 pm

Looking for eeeeextra legroom and chose exit row 28 a/b. Very concerned about the
toilet traffic. Equipment shows as 767-400 ER,, so hopefully I am looking at the
correct map. Is legroom "endless" or will my feet hit the toilet enclosure? Maybe I
am better off with a regular E+ seat?

Where to sit 767-400
 
I just booked my first trip for 2017 in business class (D) on United (UA 962 EWR-TXL) and it shows the 2-1-2 configuration for rows 1-6 on 764. Recognizing its more speculation than science at this point, any advice on whether the middle seat is more desirable than any others?

Interestingly enough, the return flight (UA 929 LHR-ORD) is also designated as Polaris business (D) in my reservation notes but the physical configuration is the traditional 3-classes of service.

Flying as a single and don't care about a window? IMHO, middle isle is great. Some, however, don't like having people passing by on both sides.

Are there air vents in J on this bird? I can't recall.

Seating Question 767-400????
 
Tried doing a search and can't find the thread on where to sit on a 767-400 so I thought I would ask. Originally has business seats 3A&3B but United has just switched them. Are 8A&8B bad seats? Is there much noise from the galley behind them? Called United to switch them back which they said they did but they haven't changed back on the reservation. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks.

The bathrooms are also back there. I prefer the middle/front of the cabin on these birds.

Well unfortunately, United doesn't want to move me back to my original seats so I guess I am stuck. At least it's a night time flight so hopefully not much traffic while sleeping.

CMK10 May 12, 17 10:16 pm

I sat in 3D on this plane this week from IAD-IAH and found the footwell really tight. I enjoyed the center aisle otherwise but it was almost impossible to get both my feet in at the same time.

AAerSTL May 16, 17 6:36 am

Any advice for a solo traveler in Polaris/BusinessFirst? Currently have 1D on a westbound TATL into EWR. Not particularly tall, so the shorter seat length isn't an issue. More concerned about annoyances from nearby forward galley, lavs, and passengers bumping into my seat from both aisles.

Have not been on the 767-400ER since before the merger and before the (c)2010-2011 flat bed seat mods.

In The 216 Jun 25, 17 4:55 pm

You have the best seat on the plane. There are no forward lavs on the 767-400 so nobody would be bumping into you with the exception of maybe an FA.

Agreed. My only issue with 1D is on eastbound TATL flights when noise from the galley can interrupt sleep but this generally occurs only early in the flight.

On 767-400, does the exit door affect legroom in seats 28A and 28L?
 
Sorry for the newbie question, but itís my very first time flying United.

On 767-400, does the exit door affect legroom in seats 28A and 28L?

or am I better off in seats 16A or 16L? (unless the bulkhead is really close?)

Thank you so much for your advice.

You're likely to get all kinds of insights/anecdotes/preferences/biases/etc from the smart folk here, but file this one away for quick reference when such questions arise:

I use Seatguru, but only as a last resort, because a lot of the info are questionable. :)

On Delta's 767-400, Seatguru doesn't show the emergency door as protruding. On United's 767-400, Seatguru says the emergency door protrude into the legroom space... or does United have a different kind of 767-400 with a different type of emergency exit door?

MrWilliamston Aug 24, 17 11:36 am

took the flight. thought I leave this comment in case anyone asks in the future:

any seat in row 16 has more than plenty of legroom for anyone under 6'4" unless they have extremely long legs.

not sure if it's just on my flight, but a lot of E+ passengers just go up to use the business class lavatories in front of row 16. the flight attendants said absolutely nothing during the 9-hour flight across the Atlantic.

That seems to be the norm in J and GF, however, I was pleasantly surprised with the vigilance shown by the GF FAs on my last flight: They locked the bathroom door and allowed access only the GF passengers.

what if it's a bathroom emergency and the passenger has no time to summon the FA to unlock the door? :D has happened to me on more than on occasion where a mere seconds meant the difference between soil pants and getting on the toilet in time. (this happened to me on a Delta 747-400 and I had to run downstairs to the lower deck lavatory because upper deck lavs were occupied)

Happy to report that there always seemed to be a FA right by the bathroom, as the galley was right next to it. :) Also happy to report that all systems functioned well enough to handle the time wait. But, I share your pain....:)

so the flight attendants now have to pull double duty as bathroom attendants as well? :( wait until the union reps hear about this. :)

IDLNyc Aug 25, 17 7:59 pm

Booked UAL 767-400 Economy+ RT EWR-HNL.
Does anyone know if rows 16, 17, -or- 18 lack windows? Seatguru labels 16A and 16L "bad seats" for lacking windows. Consequently I selected rows 17 and 18. But posts on this thread give row 16 good reviews and checking photos of the exterior, it looks like three of the first six fuselage frames aft of Door 2 are missing windows (representing rows 16, 17, and 18?) . Any info appreciated - thanks.

thaliajen Aug 27, 17 12:02 am

I'm flying next month from EWR-ATH Polaris. I know the seats aren't installed in the 767 but they still call it Polaris. I'm in 3A but saw that 1L came up available. Is there much difference? Last year we flew a 777 out of ORD and I was shocked at how tiny the seats were. Yes they reclined and it was BF, but not a lot of width. Meanwhile, like thisyear, my BFF is traveling economy. Last year she got a bulkhead row to herself. I do hope to sleep on this night flight. Going home I am in 1L but wonder if I should switch bcof possible galley noise?

Anyone? Best Polaris/BF seats on 767?
