The business seats on new 777 configuration are lay flat. Very worth of the price as it is just as comfortable as First class. Very padded and relaxing, slept like a baby! The features are easy to use and the screens were huge. You can choose from a multitude of movies, TV shows, games and music. The menu also enables you to use your Ipod and view any of your content. There are ports for AC power, Airplane power connections and USB.
The United issue headphones are comfortable but still using a mono signal for their audio, so good to bring your own headphones along so you can hear everything in stereo.
The blankets were fabulous, like a quilted comforter. The pillows were average but suitable.
I was not happy with the configuration, 2-4-2, but it is acceptable. The 2 people in the middle have to step over the aisle side folks to depart from their seat and can be a struggle for anyone with short legs. It is neat with the front and back configuration. Reminds me of my days flying military aircraft.
One of the flight attendants had a bit of an attitude, I can only assume that he was upset that he was in the service industry.
I am optimistic that United will continue their modifications on these 777's and I will get another chance to sleep good on my journeys.
