Everything You Wanted to Know About Where to Sit on a UA 772 Hawaii Configuration

UA has re-labeled their site and this is now Version 3 -- only 2 left unconverted and should be gone by Summer 2017



United Old Domestic 777 layout ("Version (was 4) now 3")

United is currently in the process of converting these planes, as well as some other 777s, into a new "high density" 777 fleet for primarily domestic and North America routes, currently listed as "Version 4" or "Version 5" of the United website. Information about that configuration can be found in this thread:

Everything You Wanted to Know About Where to Sit on a UA 772 Hawaii Configuration

Is there an actual bulkhead in front of row 16 or is it just open space.

Thanks

That looks like it is a 777-200. I have not flown on that flight, but the seating configuration on the UA website appears to show restroom walls on either side of the plane in front of Row 16, and galley wall in the center in front of Row 16.

Row 16 is an exit Row, so if you are on either side of the plane there is extra legroom because it is an exit row. You have to be able to meet qualifications to be assigned a seat by the exits.

I did not find a thread on where else to sit on this aircraft after search. Row 39 Exit Row looks ok.

Perhaps someone who frequently flies that route will be kind to reply?

Open space with FA jump seat facing you.

In F, avoid Row 5. Galley noise, lav noise, narrowed aisle with heavy traffic.

Row 1 center has a ridiculous amount of open space in front. Pretty well isolated from lavs and forward galley.

Any recollection on the sides for Row 1? A/B and H/J. Are they just "normal"? I usually avoid Row 1 due to limited foot space.

I read somewhere that 5 A/B are usually reserved for crew so I chose 4A on my upcoming GUM-HNL flight as it should be quiet.

In row 1 is there enough room in the center seats for the middle seat passenger to get past a fully reclined person on the aisle?

I flew this about a month ago. No only is there enough room for the middle seat passenger to get past, lots of people not sitting in this row used the area between the seat and the bulkhead as a pass through.

I'd say "normal" is about right. Not notably spacious nor tight.

Yes, during boarding you get some of this and even during flight if the FAs have the galley blocked. If you raise your footrest, it blocks the walkway.

So if you were traveling by yourself and don't want to be disturbed by people climbing over you and don't particularly want a difficult climb over people yourself (although I am reasonably agile), which seat would you choose?

1A, D, F, or J. I like windows so would probably take A or J, although the middle row (D/F) has more space in front (and note that J is likely to have the better view on approach to HNL).

Flying with a total of 4 people(3 seats) - myself, wife, 3 year old, and 20 month old lap child. Would 1DEF be the logical choice?

If you ever get a chance to snag 5A or 5K, i would take those. They are typically blocked off as crew rest seats and have more recline than the other FC seats. Great views too!

I don't agree. Row 5 is adjacent to the galley and lavs and there is a ton of traffic, which is made worse because the aisle narrows there. These are IMO the worst seats in the cabin.
