Jul 4, 2017: United Airlines introduces additional Boeing 777-300ER service, the airline's latest aircraft type featuring the all-new United Polaris business class seats, to its flight schedules.
Boeing 777-300ER aircraft are already in service on United's San Francisco - Hong Kong (HKG), San Francisco to Tokyo Narita, and New York/Newark - Tel Aviv (TLV) routes and will begin service from San Francisco to Taipei (TPE) on August 1. United expects to place into service all 14 aircraft in its first 777-300ER order in 2017. The airline recently announced an order for four additional 777-300ER aircraft.
United's 777-300ER aircraft provides a modern, spacious interior envisioned in partnership with design firm PriestmanGoode, including the airline's all-new United Polaris business class seat.
This new seat represents the most recent in the continued roll-out of United Polaris, the airline's most important product transformation in more than a decade, featuring a reimagined, sleep-enhancing experience for intercontinental travelers.
The Boeing 777-300ER features 60 seats in business class in a 1-2-1 configuration with direct-aisle access from all seats.
Throughout the aircraft, the cabin interior is comprised of modified branding elements as well as carpets, fabrics and wall laminates as well as redesigned lavatories which include contemporary finishings and farmhouse-style sinks. With a focus on offering a more relaxing journey for customers, the new cabin design features LED mood-lighting to complement sleep and assist with time-zone changes as well as textured and softer touch materials which not only offer a more premium feel, but will absorb aircraft noise and other sound within the cabin.
Seats in United Economy offer two United Private Screening options – personal on-demand entertainment with high-definition seat-back monitors and USB ports along with United's personal device entertainment, enabling customers to play thousands of hours of movies and television programmes on their electronic devices. Customers also have access to in-seat power outlets and the opportunity to purchase satellite Wi-Fi.
The aircraft features 102 seats in United Economy Plus in a 3-4-3 configuration with 34 inches of pitch, and 204 United Economy seats in a 3-4-3 configuration with 31 inches of pitch.
