WAYO! United’s Sexy, Custom Designed Polaris is on the schedule.
Did I just use United and Sexy in the same sentence? You better believe it. Have you seen this thing? I thought it looked HOT when they first announced the product, but now you can rub your face all over Saks 5th bedding, freshen your face with Cowshed products, and LIE-FLAT in your bod pod. As a matter of record, Polaris has been a tiered roll out. They debuted the soft product ( Saks product, pillows, Cowshed, etc) December 1st, and now they have announced where and when the seats will make their big debut. I have to say…Miles REALLY wants to meet that little White Polaris Bear and kick it in the new product. Well it’s possible because United’s Sexy, Custom Designed Polaris is on the schedule!
So where will it fly? Bi-coastal Road Warriors Rejoice!
With the flight schedule update this weekend, United will offer one round trip six days each week between Newark Liberty International Airport and San Francisco International Airport between Feb. 16 and May 4. The airline expects to begin 777-300ER intercontinental service between San Francisco and Hong Kong on March 25, with the aircraft replacing a Boeing 747-400 currently being used on the route. Flight and aircraft schedules are subject to change.
United expects to place into service all 14 aircraft in its 777-300ER order in 2017.
This means you can try out the new United Polaris business class without flying all the way to Hong Kong! You can give it a go flying between EWR and SFO starting Feb. 16th up until May 4th. That’s pretty cool. I checked to see if the flight had loaded to HKG on March 25th and it hadn’t, so stayed tuned!
Here are excerpts from my June post : I get all up in Polaris details if you’re interested.
