Everything You Want to Know About Where to Sit on a United 764 [767-400]
 
I've spent about 15 minutes trying to find the "Everything you wanted to know about where to sit on the PMCO 764 (lie-flat)" thread, but can't find it anywhere. Does one exist?

If not, any suggestions on where to sit on this bird in the forward cabin?

All the seats are the same except row 1 which has larger foot wells (comparable to every other PMCO BF configuration).

So row 1 is the place to be? It's right near the lavs, correct?
What about middle (single seat) vs. sides? I'm doing 2 daytime flights (ZRH-EWR and EWR-IAH), so I'm trying to figure out what will work best (or if it matters).

Thanks for any insight!

Middle seat is the best, privacy wise. Not the best for carts and people hitting you on both sides of the aisle.

I suggest mods rename this thread accordingly, if no similar thread exists.

What's It Like in BusinessFirst on a 764?
 
Taking my wife to Paris in July for our anniversary. Booked award seats in BusinessFirst EWR-CDG and back. What's it like? Seat recommendations? TIA.

I don't like the CO business seats. But others do. You'll get the same flat bed seat with the "too small" cubby hole for your feet as you would on a pmCO 777 or 757. If you've ever flown business on pmCO in. 777 or 757 with flat bed seating, it's the same except 2-1-2 instead of 2-2-2 or 2-2 on the other aircraft

Just not on the left if you'd like to sleep.

Is that cause the bathroom is there? Good to know - usually do 1KL on the PMCO birds.

iker Jan 19, 13 9:11 am

i've been seated in seat 1a a few times. the lav does not adjoin the bulkhead as you might expect. the lav is forward the emergency door such that the lav doesn't become an issue. there is more space in the first row.

if no one is seated in 1b, 1a, i suspect, is the most private seat on the flight.

eleeut Jan 19, 13 9:34 am

the 764 BF seats (at least in the center aisle) are narrower and shorter than the PMCO 772 BF seats. specs on UA.com seem to support that. i'm 5'10 / slim. if the footwells are like the bulkheads ones on the PMCO 772 BF seats, try to go for those.

Wait, which is better 1 A/B or 1 K/L? I would think K/L would be worse than A/B.

best Y seats sCO 767-400
 
Title says it all.

Unlike 767-300 where there are entire rows of good seats like 16, 21,22 for 767-400 I seems not to find any good seats...
Bulkhead seats have limited space for this type and I cannot see any real exit row seats....

Thanks

flymexico2010 Mar 13, 13 4:38 pm

cannot believe this is first question regarding Y seats on this type of aircraft...

thank you mods for moving it here. I could not find this thread.

flymexico2010 Mar 15, 13 3:36 pm

no inputs at all?:confused:

avi8tir Mar 15, 13 8:47 pm

Are the footwells smaller on the 764 compares to the PMCO 777? Seemed that way to me... But I could be mistaken. My fiancé and I were sitting on the right side of the aircraft in BF.... Row 6 I think.

767-400 premium economy ? + ANZ mileage ?
 
Hi all,
I'm off on a last minute mileage trip to Europe to see my Mum; I'm flying a UA 767-400 (EWR-ZRH) and then returning to LAX on Air New Zealand's 777 out of LHR.

Going over I've bumped myself up to Premium Economy in the hope of getting some sleep. I have the bulkhead window 16a which seat guru advices "caution" about. Any thoughts? I love a window / hate being trapped, but am worried about limited legroom. Anyone sat in a bulkhead on the 400?

Coming back I'm in regular old economy on ANZ. I'm slightly trepidatious about their economy product since it has 10 seats across rather than 9. I don't have a seat assignment and am going try and call ANZ directly for one. So, I am a) wondering if they even allocate seats to mileage awards and b) will allow me to upgrade to their Premium Economy product. Any other thoughts about ANZ in coach?

I've been spoiled over recent years - mostly fly Virgin UC Transatlantic. This will be a good refresher on the bitter reality of economy international travel ;)

BF lavs are in galley area at rear of BF cabin on lie-flat 39-seat configuration. Service for first 5-6 rows is out of forward galley. Last 2-3 rows out of 2nd galley. In this configuration, there's noise from front galley and and traffic to lavs in rear - I chose mid-cabin seat and probably would do so again. 1KL had the curtain drawn after meal service, but galley curtain remained open on 1AB side where FAs hung out.

Does anyone know if 1D (the single middle seat) has the larger foot well since its the bulkhead. Thats what I grabbed for my upcoming EWR-MUC flight, to avoid anyone hitting me as they got in or out of the window seat

If it doesnt have the larger well then I will take the aisle seat on the Right not by the lav

You're good with 1D. Though you're better off avoiding the 767-400 altogether - the 'bed' is shorter than on the 777 and if you're anything close to or over 6 foot, good luck stretching out for a sleep!

Thanks for both the good and bad news. Im 6'2", however the reason I want the large foot well is I usually sleep on my side so the reg wells wont accomadate my feet = no sleeping at all

Since its an award tkt and MUC is only my connecting city and nothing else was available even in Saver Y that didnt require 2 connections and double digit layovers , I will take the 764 but keep my eyes out for something better

I can provide a pretty recent comp. I'm 6'1" and just sat in 1D on HNL-EWR on a 764 this past weekend. It is true that it can be a bit cramped but if you get all the way up to the top of the seat (or as far up as you can with the headrest/pillow), it is at least workable. I was able to sleep on my side without issues when I tried it although I'm mostly a back sleeper.

I'm a card carrying member of the "anything is better than Y" brigade so I'm maybe more tolerant than others but I don't think you should worry. I passed on dinner service since I had just crushed some sushi by the pool so I reclined to the bed right after takeoff. I woke up somewhere near Pittsburgh so it clearly was comfortable enough for 7+ hours sleep. Enjoy the ride.

Thanks, another option that became available is UA via ZRH so its still a 764 but with a 16 hr layover and arriving 3am into my final destination no Thanks, even thou that means LX on a A330.I'll keep MUC even with a LH A320 as my connecting plane but getting in at 2pm works alot better for me.

cbchicago Apr 10, 13 1:51 pm

Seats 1 AB and 1KL have a self on top of the montior because of the angle of the wall, You can put your bag, pillow, etc up there out of the way during the flight. If you are over 6' tall you will be cramped. Nice plaine, flew it from IAD-IAH in seat 1A.

I'm the same height, and same problem with the regular footwells - those seats are worthless to me. I flew the 764 for the first time last month - had never flown on a 764 before, and so deliberately routed IAH-FRA just to try it. I wish I had known beforehand that the seats were shorter than on the 777. I can sleep fine in row 1 or 8 on the 777, but the 764 was a nightmare, and I only figured out after the fact that the reason it seemed so short was because it was so short.

Sleeping on the side was the best option for me - tend to be less fully stretched out that way. Lesson learned for next time though - no more 764's!

flymexico2010 May 16, 13 9:57 am

I can give now some input on best seats on 767-400 after, without even planning I was rebooked on this type of 767 instead of 767-300.

Was seated in 16B which is ok, as the entire row 16 but in my opinion the best seats are 28 B+K. These seats have a lot of legroom and no bulkhead which would limitate this legroom.

anc-ord772 May 21, 13 3:40 pm

Any other Y seat updates? 772 changed to 764. Leaning towards 16A, but will split if 744 style bulkhead.

767-400 exit row question
 
My fiance recently had knee surgery and we are traveling on a UA 767-400er in E+. Her knee is in a full extension brace, and we are looking for as much leg room as possible to ease the 8 hour flight we have ahead of us (C is out of the question for us sadly).

We are currently seated in a regular E+ seat, but row 28 DEF are open. How si the leg room in the center section of the exit row?

Thank you.

halcyongolf May 26, 13 3:25 am

Sadly I do not believe the that answers the question I asked. There is some information on row 16 and 28 b and k, but no information on the center section of row 28. If anyone had flown on this plane before I would appreciate some insight into what the legroom is like in 28 def.

halcyongolf May 26, 13 11:55 am

So the flyertalk community comes up with a big goose egg on this question. I guess Y questions are no longer the norm around here.

Reviewing the history of this thread, it seems that there is truly a dearth of information about Y seating on this aircraft.

Advice on E+ Seat selection
 
http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Uni...767_400_ER.php

Flying UA41 (BRU-EWR) and have my choice of seats still... Everything is wide open. I booked row 28 (emergency row) for my wife & I. I'd prefer row 16 (still available) but like the extra leg room that 28 seems to bring at least according to Seat Guru. I'm 6'3".

So what would you guys go with... I'm still debating row 16, less legroom, less bothered by the queue for the bathroom (smaller section), earlier off the plane. Suggestions?

One other question, I'm *G, and I have a connecting flight on Swiss Air and Brussels Airlines. How do I get seat assignments? Or do I just deal with it at the airport? United won't let me do it.

JDS747 Jul 9, 13 3:32 pm

I can't comment on the seats as I've never flown the 764 but for Swiss and Brussels you will likely need to call them to get seats assigned.

Sometimes you can check your itin for those airline's PNRs, go to their website, pull up the PNR and assign yourself a seat. I would suggest trying this first and if it doesn't work then call those airlines. Either way you'll need the PNR for the respective airline so be sure to locate it first.

I would go with 28, will feel less cramped. The extra space for letting someone by is nice.

You need the airline specific PNR for LX and SN. Sometime they are available online in the itin (at the top of the page). Or you can call UA or the specific airlines and ask for it. You have to deal with the specific airlines for seat assignements, UA can not do it. Some inter-european may not have advance seat assignments.
