UA only had six more seats in theirs, a total of 292.  Their newest ones
have even fewer seats, a total of 278 (officially 272 because they no
longer count the six crew rest seats) but the two rows of Y seats which
were removed went entirely to add space to F.  So, Singapore's 286 could
still result in lousy seating for those in Y if they gave all the space
to those up front.
