Tonight is United’s last 747 on the Sydney run out of SFO. From tomorrow night it will be 777s servicing UAL 863 SFO-SYD.
It will be a nicer coach class experience in the 777s, but a longer flight with the 777s slightly slower cruising speed.
Farewell to seat 14K upstairs, visiting the cockpit prior to pushing back, and all that.
And no more views like this, United’s return flight 870 (SYD-SFO) banking right over Sydney after taking off from 34L at SYD (click for larger version):
