I’m on a United 777-200 heading to Amsterdam from Dulles and incredibly (after a missed connection story I won’t bore you with) my upgrade cleared.
I’m a Continental guy, so I haven’t experienced the full range of United aircraft yet. This is my first time in Business on a UA 777-200 and – again, I’m not complaining, I’m just pointing out – I do find it odd that Biz is laid out in a 2-4-2 configuration. I’m in that middle 4 and it is a little strange to be this close to 2 other people in this cabin.
Also I’m facing backwards.
The seats are lie-flat and perfectly comfortable, but I think if I had actually paid the $7000 this flight costs, and I were in a middle seat facing backwards, I might have a gripe or two with my situation.
And while I did not pay that, and I am beyond happy that I am not sitting in the back (though, really, is it such a big deal? I remember when I was just happy to be going to Europe) this is backwards thing is a new experience.
