I know this will be a controversial claim. Far more so than noting that DL SM is best in class The rear-facing seats in the sUA 772 J-cabin, in one of the rows of 2 adjoining the windows, are really quite decent accommodation. And obviously the top deck of the 744 is a nice eyrie. Despite the narrow width, the length of the seat is good, it lies flat, the noise-cancelling headsets work well and the AVOD I find really excellent in size and choice. More so than most other carriers. The food isn't bad. The wine not so good and the service is hit or miss, I agree, but good international UA crews can hold their own against almost any others. After flying this configuration a number of times, I'm not even sure that I prefer the ex-CO herringbone six-abreast BF fit. I am factoring in accessibility from my viewpoint. SQ J on the 380/77W is better, without doubt, but SQ has no upgrade instrument comparable to UA's GPU and so for me, the UA system works well. I don't begrudge buying the W-up fares for this benefit, out of pocket, so UA wins as well.
