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.

United 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.

Bottom Line

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.

Report back if you’re lucky enough to experience the new Polaris seats as well the lounge!

  1. C’mon, none of this 1-2-1, Polaris is 2-4-2 just like UA always has flown in its business cabin. Just look at the seat map vs CX, AA, AC or many other airlines flying 77Ws with true 1-2-1 configurations.

  2. Uhhh…seats not actually in service yet.

    Suggesting the product has debuted when it still isn’t in service seems all sorts of wrong. At least where facts matter.

  3. Wake up people it is called a soft product as a airline can’t reconfigure 200 airplanes in a day! So until all new configurations are setup it may be 2-4-2 on some flights. Would you just want to wait for the soft product and wait until all configurations are done? How about not using a Polaris lounge until then? Clearly you don’t have the facts or think you are entitled to everything at once. Remember good things come to those who wait.

  4. the first flight with the new cabin (for the public) is on Feb 16th from EWR to SFO and back the same day. the Polaris brand name has been in use since late in 2016 and the bedding and personal kits are be used in ALL business and first class routes international and even on planes in the USA that have the older lay flat seats. (like recent Dulles to Chicago flight I took in business first) the 2-4-2 comment is simply wrong and that is the layout for older seating not what is coming, just the branding is different. it will be at least end of 2017 before even a dozen planes will have new seats.
    I luckily booked a Polaris seat from EWR – SFO for day 1 flight / figure a lot of big wigs from United will also be sitting up front.
