My upgrade on the United 767-300 cleared at booking which is a good thing; several other passengers were begging the gate agent for seats in the business class cabin where none were to had. And so I settled in to 6A, my rear-facing business class seat and enjoyed the flight.
After the quick taxi and takeoff the flight was a typical United Airlines one in most respects. Meals were consistent with the flavors I’m used to on UA and I generally enjoy them. They ran out of the wine I was drinking then managed to find another bottle. They also ran out of Diet Coke and Club Soda by the end of the flight.
I watched a couple movies (I do enjoy the selection on UA’s AVOD system a lot, though the 763 is a smaller selection than some of the other types in the fleet) and took a nap. I woke up in time to eat some more before arrival.
The second meal, shortly before landing was one of the new sandwiches (I think) and it was pretty good, despite the less than stellar visual of the cheese burnt on the plate. The fruit on the side was mediocre and the chocolates not particularly good.
And then our landing at IAD.
I do enjoy the ride across the field on the “moon buggy” for the sake of the close-up views of airplanes as they taxi past.
