United Polaris 777-300ER
This flight was taken before the Coronavirus crisis, on 2020-03-12T08:35:00Z
Welcome to today’s review! Today I will be flying on United Polaris business class on the 777-300ER. Today we start our journey in Ben Gurion Airport, heading to Newark Liberty International Airport! Before I start this review, I would like to give a little bit of a background. This flight was taken on March 12, 2020. We were supposed to head back on March 15, but we decided to move the flight a few days early so we can get back before possible travel bans. This flight was supposed to be taken in Premium Plus, but when we were booking the ticket, there was only one seat available and premium plus, so we upgraded one of the tickets to business. Anyway, on with the review! We had access to the Dan lounge in Tel Aviv, and it offered plentiful selection of food. Keeping with the theme in Israel, all food at the lounge was kosher, so it does look a lot like breakfast foods. There’s only one store that sells meat in the entire airport, and no zone serves meet as well.
As you see here, you’ll notice that a lot of the foods include bagels, pastries, and drinks.
Anyway, it was time to head to our gate, where our aircraft was waiting. Unfortunately, there was no good views of the aircraft from the gate, so I have this picture taken from the D concourse. Anyway, it was time to head to our gate, where our aircraft was waiting. Unfortunately, there was no good views of the aircraft from the gate, so I have this picture taken from the D concourse. Today at the gate was N2645U, a 2 year old 777-300ER.
As we board the plane, I don’t have any pictures, so I’m going to use one from online. Anyway, the cabin is layed out in a 1-2-1 configuration, with 72 seats and a pitch of 78 inches. Today my seat is 2A.

Waiting at the seat was a pillow, the gel pillow, and a thick blanket. The bedding is provided by Sacks 5th Avenue, and I found it to be some of the most comfortable bedding in the sky.
In the storage compartment next to the seat, you will find water, headphones, and the amenity kit. It was nicely stocked, and offered enough for bed and the morning.
United does their branding very well, and they incorporate that into all that they do, including the light to the left of the seat. It had a modern design, just like the cabin.
The entertainment on United is really good. They offer so much selection, it was hard to choose! They also provide many languages, so you won’t have a problem watching.
Under the screen, there is a cubby, to hold your phone, conveniently, there was a USB port next to it, so you can store you phone easily.
Under the cubby, is the footwell. It was large, and no one should have a problem of fitting or not fitting into this seat. The seat appears very narrow on pictures, but I can assure you that you will fit.
United did a really good job with their catering. They provided an excellent mean, and I ate it all. Today, we had a chicken dish, which was spot on!
Now comes some chocolate pudding for dessert, and it was really good!
Thank you for reading this review! To get my closing thoughts, I had a fairly positive experience with United! And I could conclude, that yes, there are better business classes in the world, but United offers a great product and if you can get this at the right price, well… Enjoy your flight!
