>UA has their 777's set with a TIGHT seating arrangment.  Very uncomfortable.

Having flown in all three classes on United's 777s, including over ten
hours (LHR-SFO) in coach, I can only guess that you've never actually
been on one of them.  Their Y seats are wider than any others in UA's
fleet except the 767s, which I believe they match, and pitch is equal
or better, too.  Except in F, where a 747 is pretty hard to beat, I'd
take a 777 over a 747 any day, at least in UA's config.

I'm pretty some carriers are stuffing ten across (3-4-3, just like most
747s) in their 777s.  I shudder to think what you'd have to say about
*those* planes.
