Here is how the flight looked yesterday evening. Look at all of the economy availability
Today I double checked the seat map to see if someone moved to sit next to me and I found that the plane had changed. We are no longer flying on a reconfigured 777, but the old style. Check out those BusinessFirst seats -- no longer would you be flying in a new(ish) fully flat seats, but in the old recliner seats. I am very happy I didn't pay to upgrade to BusinessFirst -- these recliner seats are not at all worth the extra cash and miles if you ask me.
I am still excited about this trip to Shanghai, but I am a bit disappointed in the aircraft we are taking. I'm just hoping that my tablet will be able to keep a charge for the full 14 hour flight. At least now I have the opportunity to stretch out across 5 seats in the center section and sleep if I want. I may even move over to the window seat so I can get a view of Shanghai as I land.
Have you flown one of these old 777 recently? The last time I did was in September 2010 from Frankfurt to Chicago -- and that was only 9 hours. How do you keep yourself occupied while on a 14 hour flight while in Economy without AVOD? Where would you sit if you were me?
