UNCONFIRMED Flight Schedules of United's New Cabin 777 Aircraft (2011)

Just booked IAD-CDG-IAD in Feb/March. Not expecting new config, but it would be nice

IAD to MUC on UA 902 (1/10/2011)

Per everyone's advice here, I checked UnitedCargo for aircraft type on UA 902 on 1/10/2011 (I'm scheduled to be on that flight).

It has a blank aircraft type.

From DEN to IAD, it is showing 777. But IAD to MUC is blank...

I checked other days and IAD to MUC is usually the 777 config (not the coveted 77Q).

Anybody want to hazard a guess why that field is blank on that day and what equipment I might be lucky enough to fly on??

Thanks!!

when using unitedcargo, always use the flightschedule link and not the flightstatus link as flightschedule will show the a/c type as opposed of flightstaus which can be blank or simply show the wrong type of a/c.

Now, goalie-parents VDB'd onto 902 DEN-IAD today (1/4) and I thought I saw 77Q on flightschedule but I'll need to hear back from them later tonight after they arrive in MIA

Seems like the new LAX-PVG route is using the new 777 as well.
The route is practically empty right now. lol

any chance that IAD-NRT could be getting the new config soon. I'm new to UA, but have a trip to NRT planned at the end of Feb.. I'm working with my travel dept to try to route through Chicago but IAD is cheaper...

I don't think NRT has seen any regularly scheduled 777Q service, and I wouldn't expect it any time soon.

It was showing B777 until yesterday - now UnitedCargo is showing 77Q. I'm cautiously optimistic, but I can't really believe it either...

Fingers crossed!! Currently in 8a/8b - but the seat chart shows old config...

I am scheduled for January 14. Presently, the seat map still shows the new config.

I hope it stays the same.

I certainly wonder why they removed that flight from the permanent list
885 on UA Cargo schedule now shows B777 on 14 Jan (every other day shows 77Q)

Now my question is that I have row 6 assigned on B777 which does not exist.

Any thoughts with what I should do with my seat assignment?

It would be nice if they would move me to F class since my seat does not exist in C class

At what point does .bomb mirror UnitedCargo.com as far as 77Q vs. B777 a/c assignment?

I am three days out with .com showing 77Q and cargo showing B777.

Will it match up tomorrow? Thursday? Never?

Usually by the 12-hour mark, but sometimes it never does.
