Doubt they'd put the newest seat in the shortest lifespan A/C...plus don't think the reverse herringbone fits in a 767 IIRC. You have to go staggered like what AA is now doing.

It's 1-1-1 in a 767 for a herringbone config, a la Air Canada.

Yeah but that's an older seat (not the newer reverse herringbone)...UA's not going to reconfig to that.

OS can fit 1-2-1 on their 767, why couldn't UA?

its fine for short flights, the seat is uncomfortable and the IFE is poor. But on a 7 hr flight its not a big deal.

ANA seems to take this slot.

EDIT: Looks like the bird is the one with all-aisle access in J, in which case I'll be fine with reaccomodation. Although still makes me wonder if this could be a "replacement" flight for UA7.

Good for you Houstonians! Get an option for a much better ride to NRT now, with elite RDMs* to match

(*until they decimate the partner earning chart)

No this flight isn't replacing FLT 7. It's using the slot that was used by the short lived 2nd IAH - NRT flight.

Thank you. Then really good news. More options are always better.

TOKYO, December 11, 2014 –ANA, Japan’s leading airline, is to launch a new route from Narita to Houston, the capital of the US oil and energy industry, from June next year as part of an expansion of its network between the Americas and the growing Asian market.
*****
With the effect that this rapid and ongoing collapse in crude prices is and will continue to have on the Houston economy, I wouldn't bet on that service being there next summer.

while i dont think it would be the case, i dont think anyone (unless they have the knowledge) would not think there is the slightest chance this could replace 7, unfortunately.

will remain to be seen if this improves connectivity into IAH for outbound NRT with the later departure.
