    Is the conversion to the new-config still going on, or has the "new"-UA suspended it?

    Senior FA on LAX-NRT this week told me they are ongoing, but at a slowed pace due to merger. Not sure if that makes sense, but that's what she told me. I was glad to hear it, because the 777 I was on (and the next one, from NRT to SIN) was pretty worn out - sure, C is nicer than Y but the seats and amenities were similar to domestic Y on smaller 2 class planes.

    Seating note on the 777-P (LAX-NRT): I ended up in 9A on the first leg, and 9B is designated as CREW SEATING. The pilot used the seat to have a meal and watch some TV after the first 3.5 hours of the flight, but otherwise the seat was vacant. Nice to know.

    Considering they were already being completed at a glacial pace, a slowdown is something indeed. The fact that they are continuing at all tells us perhaps that int F is not dead quite yet or that they feel they can convert the F seats to C quite easily/cheaply...so it warrants the continuation.
