76L, High J 763 (46 Polaris/22PP/43E+/56E-) now operational

Just wondering about the Y seat count on the new High J map.
From the map for 2777/10Mar, 46J and 22PP matches. In the Y section, there are 10 rows of window sets for 40 E+ seats plus a triple behind PP. That looks like 43 E+ and 56 Y seats. Somewhere I had seen the count was to be 47E+ and 52Y. I'm guessing that 43 AB and 44AB, which look like crew seats and are grayed out on the ferry flight.
Can anyone confirm?

Here's the LOPA that was released/leaked back in April 2018.

It seems to correspond with the seat map for UA2777. That's 43 E+ and 52 E- (31-44DEF, plus 41-44KL and 41AB), plus crew rests 43-44AB. Presumably the crew rests will be assigned E+ when not required, taking the E+ count up to 47. Though on most TATLs when the crew rest seats are required it'll be a 163 seater with 46J/22PP/43E+/52E-. Does that make sense?

According to FA, it's in ORD now with no further assignment.

The seat map is very interesting though. 80% of the Y cabin is Y+ along the windows but standard Y in the middle, all while the row numbers appear to line up and remain even. I realize this is only a graphic and not a true representation, but if the center does in fact have less legroom than the outside, why aren't there a few more rows of seats in the middle?

Hopefully someone who flies on this bird can fill us un.

I think the DEF seats are actually more forward than they appear on the seat map. The rear galley should take up a lot of real estate and I suspect 44ABKL are next to the galley in fact.

UA #6666 767-300 with 18 rows of Polaris and Econ Plus to row 40

Has anyone seen/flown this bird? Looks like it is going mostly back and forth from EWR-LHR. Interesting that in Econ, they show Econ Plus on the sides back to row 40 (of 44) while most of the middle seats just show as regular economy. Wonder how they keep the extra inches of leg room for the Econ Plus seats (or if those extra inches just disappeared....)

Not all 767-300 will have this configeration. Looks like the pre-1998 767-300 will not get the modification.

Another great post by thepointsguy.com. Thanks Zach. Will be very interested to hear about the back of the plane and how they work economy plus on the sides and regular economy in the center of the same rows. Too bad he stopped his walk through at row 18 (but totally understandable.... )

In the end, I booked two tickets, with the first itinerary taking me to London and then on from Frankfurt (FRA) to Dubai (DXB) later in the year, for $1,459 all-in:

The return, meanwhile, would bring me back from London to Newark, and then from Newark to Frankfurt to catch the above flight to Dubai, for $1,177.

Sadly the review, whilst interesting, does not address the OPís question on the strange configuration in E+.

Found another report by Zach showing back sections of the plane. Looks like E+ still has more space. Not sure how they did that without losing row #s .
