Just read news AZ will add 5 B777s to its existing fleet of 10 B777-200ER's. These will be 2 x B777-200ER's & 3 x B777-300ER's with the aircraft likely sourced from EY. The aircraft will be used for new services to PEK, PVG, ICN, MEX, & SFO. Deliveries to commence in 2016.

Just a question...

United Airlines is contemplating to expand its service by upgrading some of its B772s to have a 3-4-3 seating configuration in Y from a 3-3-3 layout. Currently, the average seat pitch would be 31 to 32 inches, and the seat width is 18 inches. My question is:

How much of the current seat width will be reduced if that is implemented? And how will it affect the overall comfort on board that aircraft in terms of seat pitch, cabin access, and service quality?

Here's the idea:

Quote:

So this might be why they're considering expanding MNL ops
Their "Islands" configured 77E (IAH-HNL/IAH-GUM,etc) internally coded as 77G is going 28J/336Y

The IAH-HNL flight continuing to MNL makes sense since this leg is treated as international flight with better meals and amenity kits, and the new 10 abreast Y should rationalize MNL being highly VFR/leisure or as UA said, "price sensitive"

Going 10 abreast also improves HNL-NRT especially with the weakening Yen

HA had a good thing going with their MNL ops until they got greedy and started a price and baggage war with PR. Their ops up to an A332 was valiant but hastened their demise.

UA could do well with a HNL-MNL flight with feeder flights from IAH and ORD
Browsing through the seat maps, there are two variants of the B772 that have two classes on board:

- V1: J50 W72 Y145 (used for international flights)
- V2: F32 W98 Y214 (used for Hawaiian flights; F seats are recliners, W seats are standard seats)

"Upgrading" isn't the word I'd use, "Upgauge" is more accurate since the quality of the cabin is going to be worse. Anyway, typically the 3-4-3 configured 777's have 16.9"-17.5" depending on how wide of an aisle an airline considers the bare minimum. Given that United usually favors a wider aisle rather than wider seats I would an even 17.0" seat if they do go 3-4-3, similar to American (which are super cramped), Air Canada's 3 Class 77W's, or their own 747's with narrower aisles. Now as for comfort think of regular economy on one of their 747s with a tighter aisle. So not particularly comfortable or functional. As for service quality it's still United crews so slightly slower and still bad would seem likely.

Why the front section of the B777s has such a different colour from the rest of the fuselage before painting?
