    Hi all.
    Have a quick question regarding UA 320 to HNL.
    I see it is a 777. Is this a two class or three class? And how would you rate the seats in F?
    Thanks.

    Such flights are generally a 2-cabin configuration, and the
    seats are okay, nothing special. The size of the cabin makes
    the seats seem smaller than they are.

    It's domestic service but there's Mai Tais onboard...

    Grab row 1AB or HJ and you'll have fantastic legroom on that 2-cabin 777.

    Just to amplify, it's a domestic F seat. Beats the heck out of Y, but if you're paying or redeeming for F I would look for the CO flights from/through IAH or EWR which give you an international-style seat (recliner, not flat bed).

    The last time I flew that UA 2-class widebody configuration, I distinctly remember thinking that F was less comfortable and less enjoyable overall than on a 757.

    The rows of seats in F are placed so close together that if the person in front of you reclines it is difficult to open your laptop. There are also utility boxes under many of the seats, limiting your ability to stretch your legs.

    I fly this route often (because I have to) and find it uncomfortable. I agree with the recommendation to fly CO through IAH instead.

    Last time I flew this route, it was operated on a 747-100 in 1988.

    Three class cabin, sold as a two class. We had j seats for the price of y.

    The 2-class widebodies in F are really bad in terms of pitch/space. I would most definitely echo FrequentlyFlying regarding 1 AB/HJ. As HiIslands pointed out, if the person in front of you reclines...you have literally no space. The 777 is significantly better than the 2-class 767, though...so at least you have that going for you!

    Aside from the 1/2 way to Hawaii game and Mai Tai's (along with Trader Vic's food offerings), you're looking at a standard domestic F offering.

    Thank you. Based on this and other posts I decided paying F was not worth it.
