Is 78J J that much worse than the 77W J?

As seats go for more privacy, they are going to be feel more cramped and claustrophobic.
Rather have more space then privacy... itís not like your private your still in public...

Can I cancel an award flight within 24 hours of booking if the flight is in two days?

In a mixed cabin award booking where the international legs are in J and the final domestic leg in Y, do you ever get a chance to change the last leg to J if there are open seats at check-in? Are you a displaced J passenger?

Thanks. So where do you ask for priority? At the final gate? Routing is FRA-ORD-EWR or FRA-MCO-EWR.

Call UA to be waitlisted and ask at checkin, club, gate.

I booked for my son a UA mileage ticket and paid the taxes with my united card. I want to now book the same flight for myself using SQ miles. Will we be entitled to a free checked bag?

No direct aisle, but people say the seat is very comfortable. Cabin is as ugly as they come FWIW.
