    All,

    My first flight coming up with a 767-300 International in J (EWR-ZRH) and wondered if people have preferences or favorites. Seat recommendations here for the 777 J worked amazingly well so thought I'd ask again.

    Thanks!

    If you get the Version 1 (6F/26J/151Y)...

    I liked row 6AB however that was rear facing if you don't mind that. I would absolutely avoid 10JK at all costs since the proximity of the Galley is bothersome.

    As for Version 2 (30J/184Y) I'd probably go with Row 5.

    Any of the C or H seats as you will not, nor anyone else will, have to crawl/jump over anyone else to get up and use the lav. 6 H-C usually does not open up until close to day of flight.
    All the C seats are the same as far as length/width and foot space.
    As a side note, I have recently switched over to rear facing seats as I like them a little more for sleeping.
    Have fun in ZRH, weather has been nice here lately !

    Curious... How does rear-facing make sleeping better for you?

    Your head is slightly above your feet rather than slightly below. Many people prefer that.

    Hmmm, maybe it's due to the pillow, but I've never noticed a feeling of one part of my body being lower or higher than another when in a true lie-flat seat. Only when lying in those terrible angled-flat seats do I notice (obviously.) :)

    Also rear facing you don't get to face First Class, which is a plus.
    Personally I don't want to subject to things I can't have.

    You get a front row seat at the F service and the diferences : soup course, second round of hot towels, expanded catering.

    I'm usually sound asleep by the time F or even C starts with the food. I just ask the FA to enjoy my meal and just save something for me to eat before we land. So in my case, ignorance is bliss when not seeing whats going on in F :)

    No, it's not like the slip-n-slide LH or AA seats, but just a couple degrees. Not really noticeable until you try between both forward and rear facing, but still a little difference ;)

    Yeah, I understood what Seth was saying. But I was just saying that in a true lie-flat product (perhaps due to the way I arrange the pillow), I've never had the feeling that I was on an angle, no matter how slight. :)

    Anyone know why Seatguru deleted the little notes about why certain seats were given green for "good", yellow for "caution" , for example? I guess it's been more than 1 year, but i remember that if you hovered over a seat, a window would pop up with an explanation as to why the seat earned its color. There are a few comments that remain, such as the presence of the dreaded entertainment box under all aisle seats (at least the 2 side by side) in Econ on the 67I, but many of them are gone. I know that comments are subjective but at least one could decide as to whether a misaligned window was a deal-breaker or not. Now, you just see yellow and you wonder whether it's worth getting worked up about.

    I agree its in need of an overhaul. I haven't seen much info about the 77Q and not being a former CO flier, I am really in the dark about those planes, because I've read that many of them are being reconfigured.

    I'm in the same boat (or should I same plane :))
    All I know is they are not doing the 2-4-2 in C, but other than that I don't have a clue.

    What would a 77Q have to do with CO? They're UA birds configured with 2-4-2 in Business (for the updated configuration).

    From what's been said, their configuration will not change. United has paid for the seats and will install them in their current config.

    It is being reported that three of these will be converted to the new Hawaii sub-fleet configuration rather than getting the new F/C layout.

    They will all be converted to receive the p.s. C seats in a 2-2-2 config up front and ~55" pitch, according to the reports.

    So that's where the old p.s C seats are going. I certainly hope they fix the footrests and thoroughly clean the seats. I've seen unmentionable activity happen on those on red eyes.

    It will need to be sanitized. I assume and hope, its for hawaii service only.
