    All was flying to nrt next week and was planning to fly on ua 853 instead of ua 837 since it used to 777-200 which would have personal VOD just realized that they have switched to 747. When did this happen? Did they use that plane for tpe route? Would have been nice if they used 787 or 777 on this route.

    Not sure when it happened, but both 837 and 853 are 744s as far as the eye can see, well into the Fall, so it doesn't look like a seasonal change or anything.

    SFO-TPE is a single 777 (UA 871) once a day.

    Might be one of the 747s they pulled off the SYD routes.

    Thanks. This sucks if your upgrade doesn't clear you are stuck with communal entertainment . Does anyone know when in 2014 will 747 get in seat power ? That would be life savior since one can Atleast browse the web

    It'll be interesting to see how UA does with SFO-TPE since their *a partner BR also flies 2x SFO-TPE daily.
