True, but in this case there are no E+ seats shown including (last time I checked) the exit rows in Y that were free and in white. Itís clearly a temporary seat map.

The clue is that the pointy end is seven rows of 1-2-1 (as per the LOPA linked to earlier). The non Polaris 36J config is six rows of 2-2-2. And the total seat count is 243 (28J, 21P+, 194Y).

Seems like my best guess too, there's not much else they can do with them until they have enough for dedicated routes plus backup.

For what it is worth, I think there are only a few 8-across IPTE business class in UA 777 long haul fleet floating around at this moment. In a month or two, all of them will be gone. Can anyone verify?

There are still 5 sUA 772 in the 3-class 2-4-2 J configuration and 2 being modified. I would predict that they would be all retrofitted to Polaris or HD by summer time.

UA will start selling J cabins on certain 788 routes to 28, and releasing seats once aircraft assignment is made. There will also be downgrade comp offered to pax in the event of a swap.

Well Flightaware shows it being scheduled for IAD-PEK:

Hi UAinAUS ,

Is there a reason why N785UA is showing on the out-of-service page as being in XMN for Polaris/PP but its not highlighted on the Polaris Update sheet?

I didn't remove N785UA from XMN by mistake. It was not in XMN for Polaris, rather maint.
Fixed Express spreadsheet with N numbers on CRJ550 fleet.

772:
N210UA enteredAMA paint 2755/7Jan, first 772 for EvoBlu

77W:
N2534U entered HKG 2734/7Jan for maint
N2135U entered XMN 2749/9Jan for maint
