    SFO-ORD or ORD-BRU?
    There are plenty of reports and pictures of UA 763 with International config. What are you looking for specifically?

    ORD-BRU...Like what exactly the seats looks like...I'm still pretty new to this but apparently within United, some business classes are really nice and some are very poor.

    I have flown that route/flight number many times. The 767 biz is 2-2-2. The center section toward first class gives direct aisle access to each person so you don't have to climb over anyone.

    And the seats recline all the way down to lay flat?

    Yes.

    All of the 763s used on flights to Europe have the new lie-flat BusinessFirst and GlobalFirst seats.

    None of the 762s have the new BusinessFirst seats (won't get them, as those planes are being retired) and most (soon, all) of the 764s have the new lie-flat BusinessFirst seats.

    As for the 777 fleet, the conversion of sUA 777s is still ongoing. All of the sCO 777s have the new lie-flat BusinessFirst.

    Yes. I've flown ORD-Paris and been on one of these planes in Business.

    I'm flying ORD-Brussels in July and chose it over one of the 772 flights for the lie-flat seats.

    I have no idea. There's no real difference between the rear and forward facing seats. :p

    Lufthansa's business class is not a 180 degree lie-flat seat:
