Yesterday, I got a rare treat when I attended the Community Day on the occasion of San Francisco International Airport's opening of Terminal 3E, which has finished renovations last week and will start operating this Tuesday for the flying public: a United Airlines Boeing 777-200 (reg. N781UA) was parked at one of the new gates (Gate 67), in which visitors were allowed to take a sneak peek throughout the cabin, from First Class to Economy. The biggest bonus: visitors were also allowed to visit the cockpit, a rarity for a special inaugural event like this. All of these images are mine, so enjoy the sights and welcome aboard!

Part 1:

Business Class

Part 3: (again, with yours truly on a J class seat, a parked B737-800 close to the B777, and a close up of the food preparation area)

More to come... feel free to leave comments as we move along.

Is this the up gauged product offering soon to be deployed on SFO-SYD? Pretty good I must say comparison to the lack of IFE I received on my SYD-SFO trip back in 2002.

Yes it is... It is the updated product for the B777 (F8, J40, Y220). Surprisingly, that particular aircraft is used much more for its Transatlantic services than Transpacific (so far), based out of ORD. However, I suspect that it might be the cabin design for the SFO-SYD and LAX-SYD-MEL services (downgrade from B744s that currently ply the service)... check the seat layouts for updates.

And by the way, the B772ER you will get for a SFO-SYD service would be the exact same seating configuration as above. Also, let me know when you're flying in so that I can show you around if you have time.

Cheers, no plans at the moment to fly to SFO but we did intend to go to LAX & LAS later in the year. Will keep you posted.

No problem.

And also, one of my biggest concerns when I saw the UA B772 aircraft was the arrangement of J class seats: many of them face backwards that I wonder, how many passengers have seen that as a concern when flying long-haul? And also, the 2-4-2 seating configuration at J class makes me think that it is a bad arrangement because it gives the impression of being cramped, and when the seats are deployed in the full lie-flat position, it can be difficult for both window and aisle passengers to get out when they need to go to the lavatory.

Nice ... what's the eggshell / white material on the curved seat-bulkheads? Wonder if the wood is printed or made with that special LH-Technik wood imitation technique

Boeing booked 1 new order for 4 777s last week, the first 777 order of the year.

No info on what type it is exactly.
