United has a higher-density 777 primarily for domestic flights, with 3-4-3 across economy seating and a smaller business ("United First") class with lie-flat seating. There are two versions which UA is labeling Version 3 & Version4. The differences from prior 777 planes are the economy lavatory areas and the surrounding seats (Rows 37, 39, 40, 41 and 52).

United 777 Version 3


United 777 Version 4



This plane features 28 lie-flat United First seats, 102 Economy-plus seats, and 234 Economy seats. All United First seats have in-flight entertainment screens and at-seat power. All Economy seats have power outlets (2 outlets for 3-seat groups and 3 outlets for 4-seat groups).

Most Hawaii 777-200 flights will be either of these versions. Everything You Wanted to Know About Where to Sit on a UA 772 Hawaii Configuration

For the most privacy, the only aisle seats in business that do not face the person opposite you are 4B and 4K

39A has limited legroom due to emergency slide bump in the exit door.

And the Row 39 window starts at the seat back, so basically no window,

The non-window seats have a ton of leg space.

Exit Row 39 swaps on UA 777-200 HD?

Hi All,

Didn't see this an any other thread.

The UA route from EWR-SFO uses a 777-200 HD with one version (four) that has just two seats in exit row 39 and another version (five) that has three across. Has anyone flown in 39 B or K, which are supposedly aisles in the two-across version, only to get the versions swapped and found yourself in the middle seat? I know it's always possible, but just curious if it happens frequently.

Also wondering how bothersome the lavatory proximity is to those seats.

Grateful for your response. Thank you.

During my last flight on this abomination, the purser actually made an announcement telling passengers how to raise the aisle armrest by pressing the lever underneath, and suggesting aisle passengers do so to get some extra room.

I really hope UA keeps the A350 order for international and gets some A321s for domestic.

Just take 48AB or 48KL. Itís always a row of 2 and the legroom is quite impressive. That way thereís no roulette for 2 vs 3 in the row. Also a plus it isnít considered E+ if you have no status.

Anyone else seeing that on trunk routes (e.g. SFO-IAD/ORD/EWR) the 777HD flight is *routinely* the only available flight at the lowest award level? United and IM both know this is a piece of garbage in Y.

Perhaps they have the greatest available inventory due to high capacity?

I am confused about what version of 777-200 is United using on UA 50 (June 21). The business class shows 2-4-2 in four rows and no first class. Can't find this configuration on Seatguru.

I seems to me that it's a 772 that usually does domestic flights. There's a thread about it but cannot remember its title. I have to google it. I'll let you know in a few minutes.

Thread is: "Everything you wanted to know where to sit on 772-200 HD (28BF, 102E+, 234E-)"

On Seatguru it's the Version 4 (V4) but I never use the recommendations of seatguru. I only look at the recommendations here on FT.

Why are you looking on SeatGuru? It is notoriously unreliable. As noted, that would be v4, aka the 77G, aka 772HD.

The 72G has been on that route and a few other TATL routes

Domestic 777-200

We're booked on a 777-200 from SFO to DEN in Aug. We selected seats 40a and b, a two seat row. There was no fee associated with these seats. However, other than the United site, I haven't found any seat rating site that contains a 777 with that configuration. I'm trying to figure out whether the seats are especially good and should be kept or have downsides such that we should move. Any help would be appreciated.

40AB might end up being part of row 40ABC if they swap aircraft. Other than that, they're standard, pitiful, narrow, thin, Economy Minus seats.
