763:
N657UA entered MCO 2746/7Jan

77W:
Thanks for finding it. Not shown or Flight Radar24, but just popped up on FlightAware.
It's flight 869/10Jan, SFO-HKG and it doesn't have a flight from as the mod is being done in SFO. Unless there's a test hop its just coming from the hanger.
Seat map not updated yet, but middle seats on window triple empty in first 3 rows. They'll have to move the 4th row elsewhere as those seats don't exist.
Several candidates for next one into mod due current fleet routing, but too early to post.

That's nice. I sent a comment to UA a few days ago and they said it would be sent to the web team. Don't know if that got anything going, but there is more that needs fixing.
73G non-slimline seats is obsolete
738 non-slimline is obsolete
753 non-slimline is obsolete as remaining units are in mod
763 ITPE is obsolete since N660UA ins in mod.
Too bad UA doesn't move the version numbers to reflect the most usual config as Version 1. Version 1 on 73G, 738 and 763 are obsolete

I think the sUA 772 with PP are 77K and 77R instead of 77U and 77N, rode one today on 2799, the safety card said 77K 77R, and i assume 77J>77K, 77Q>77R.

Widest Premium Plus seats in the fleet on the 78J - 19". Once these seats are installed on the 788 and 789, this will vault the 787 ahead of the 777 in my book.

The 77K/R were the interim 772ER that had Polaris but no PP. They were retrofitted with PP a while back. The remaining sUA 772ER will be 77U/N.

Just a quick note to verify that UA871 SFO-TPE did indeed have the Premium Plus seats. What a difference!

Except the J seat is listed 1.5" narrower (20.5" vs. 22" on the 77W). Considering that "too narrow" is the biggest complaint about the Polaris seat, this could be an issue.

They also only have the PP version of the 77W up, which is rather odd considering that configuration reflects less than half the 77W fleet.

News about the 763 High-J is starting to spread. Oscar dropped hints today in interviews at LAX. Of course weíve known it for months and Skift probably reads this thread.
