United Airlines recently debuted their new Polaris business class seats as well as the new Polaris lounge in Chicago, both which look awesome and many readers emailed in asking what routes you can fly Polaris on! Good news, United just announced the first few routes where you can experience Polaris.
Per United Airlines,
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.

Each United Polaris suite-like pod will feature direct access to the aisle, a 180-degree flat-bed that measures 6’6” and 23 inches wide with infinite seat recline options and one-touch lumbar support, ample storage, multiple surfaces that enable passengers to dine while working, universal A/C power as well as 2-USB ports, a 16-inch high-definition entertainment screen, electronic privacy dividers for seats in the center of the cabin, mood lighting and an illuminated “Do Not Disturb” sign. Additionally, a new marble-topped bar unit offers customers in business class a place to grab a mid-flight drink or snack.
The Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will feature 60 seats in business class in a 1-2-1 configuration with direct-aisle access from all seats.
It will be sometime until United rolls out Polaris to more routes once all 14 aircraft in its 777-300ER order come in, but in the meantime if you’re eager to fly it, at least you know which routes you’re able to currently.
