So I have booked my YYZ-RNO.... RNO-HNL..... HNL-YYZ trip today, and I am having second thoughts regarding United's First seating. I did a quick search using "United" and "Hawaii" on MRI and the first few hits which popped up included:
"You didn't mention the United plane flying to Hawaii and sprung a leak in the fuel tank and it landed..."
"United plane's evacuation slide deploys mid-flight - Hawaii News - Honolulu Star-Advertiser"
Needless to say, that wasn't terribly encouraging.
My biggest concern lies with the HNL-IAH-ORD-YYZ leg. HNL to IAH is going to be 7.5 hrs long and I am not sure how comfortable the seats in the older Boeing 777-200 are going to be. It doesn't even appear as if they have power to the seats! I have done search upon search upon search and I am getting nothing but older. Does anyone have any insight into these aircraft or the travel itself? I truly appreciate any advice you can offer.
Here is the version of the aircraft: Boeing 777-200 (777) version 4 | United Airlines
(Tagging iahflyr, and anyone else who may have insight.)
