United Airlines to Introduce Boeing 777 on Australia Routes

Three-cabin 777s to replace 747-400s from April 2014

United Airlines today announced that it will introduce Boeing 777 aircraft to replace Boeing 747-400s on its trans-Pacific services from Sydney and Melbourne to San Francisco and Los Angeles, effective April 1, 2014 (eastbound), subject to government approval.

The 777 has a total of 269 seats in three cabins – eight in Global First, 40 in BusinessFirst and 221 in Economy, including 117 Economy Plus seats with added legroom and increased personal space. Both Global First and BusinessFirst feature flat-bed seats, along with a wide range of premium-cabin services and amenities. All seats on the 777 feature personal monitors delivering a multi-channel Audio/Video on Demand inflight entertainment system, and all seats have access to power outlets. United is outfitting aircraft, including the 747-400 and 777, with global satellite Wi-Fi, offering inflight connectivity on long-haul international flights.

“The 777 will be the ideal aircraft for our Australia routes in terms of both capacity and customer amenities,” said James Mueller, United’s vice president Atlantic & Pacific sales. “Our trans-Pacific services from Sydney and Melbourne are an important part of United’s global route network, and we look forward to offering our customers a full range of inflight products and services on the 777.” United operates daily flights from Sydney and Melbourne to both its San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport hubs, from where it offers customers more than 150 connecting flights daily to over 90 U.S. destinations. United also operates a twice-weekly service from Cairns to Guam.
