    Just noticed that UA assigned me 19A on a new configuration international 777.

    Not sure what exactly they are planning to do -- maybe provide a folding chair for me? :D

    I think what's happening here is that they are in the process of switching out the new-config 777 with the old config. They reassigned me a new seat (not sure why, but I am glad I am not in 24D anymore). Unfortunately I cannot pick a new seat online yet -- would prefer aisle (20B) over 19A.

    If aisle were the criterion, 19A would technically be sufficient ;)

    Well, not in reality. If the configuration is the old one, 19A is a window seat. If it is the new one, it is a standing-in-the-aisle "seat" (row 19 doesn't exist). 20B on the other hand gives me a good seat no matter what the configuration is.

    Arghhh, now the seat map has changed to a 747, and 20B is a nice middle seat :mad:

    Fortunately still lots of other seats open, so I switched to an aisle. The itinerary page still shows that the flight is operated by a 777 and unitedcargo.com is clueless. Guess I'll hold off with OLCI for a bit.
     
  7. if your going for an upgrade hope for 747

    Actually, they changed the day of departure again, to an old configuration 777, and I was able to switch to 17A, my favorite economy seat.

    Not that I actually got that seat, though. When I got to the gate, they paged me and about five other folks and op-up'ed us to C since they were oversold in economy. And while it was indeed the old configuration, the aisle business class seat was a nice treat on a K fare ;-)
