I remember reading on this group at least a year or so ago about a problem
Boeings 777s were having: it seems that when seated in the back of the plane
that there was a perceptable side-to-side wiggle, of sorts.

If my memory serves me correctly, several posters said this problem was fixed.

I don't think so. I've taken a dozen or so transatlantic legs on UA's 777 in
the last few years and have never noticed the wiggle. However, I've never sat
further back than the trailing edge of the wing. On a recent trip, I was in
the last row and, let me tell you, they haven't fixed the wiggle problem.

It lasted the entire flight. It basically felt like you were being shaken side
to side every second for five hours.

So what's the deal?
