United Airlines currently offer a daily service from San Fransisco to Auckland which is currently being operated by 777-300ER’s. The route is usually very well filled and the aircraft that operates the route also features United’s best premium product they offer, Polaris.
The airline first used the longer variant of the Dreamliner on regular passengers services in January 2018 and they’re still currently the only airline based in the U.S to operate the aircraft
United has recently made some changes to their international routes and one of them that will getting an aircraft swap will be the San Fransisco – Auckland service.
From December 3rd of this year, United will replace the current 777 with the 787-10.

As the 787-10 is much more recent than the 777-300ER, this aircraft is also fitted out with United’s Polaris Business Class product. I Haven’t yet had a chance to fly the product but from what I’ve seen, it’s pretty solid and the bedding is especially wonderful, will have to try give it a go.

The Polaris suites have a pitch of 78” and a width of 20.6”, Premium Economy seats have a pitch of 38” and width of 19”, Economy plus seats have a pitch of 35” and width of 17.3” and finally, Economy seats have a pitch of 31” and a width of 17.3.”
