See attached both maps
They are almost the same, I believe that LY feels more cramped because the Jet is narrower.
UA:
Width 17.05" (43.3 cm)
Pitch 31" (78 cm)


LY:
Width 17"
Pitch 31"

You forgot to add seat recline:

UA 3"
UA economy plus 4"
LY economy 5"

The flip side to seat recline is the person in front of you reclining.

Though less chance of your laptop being crushed if there's no WiFi ;)

I have a hard time believing best Y seat from EWR isn't the UA 772.

For sure.
Flying the 772 after flying 77W/787 in Y, I was like this must be pre econ.....

You are an official expert in flipping every positive thing about LY into a negative. Wow!

Didn't say it was only negative, but there's a reason airlines don't give unlimited recline on 31" of pitch. It's a major trade-off.

I don't like to bash Dan - but he clearly has a bias against LY. I never heard a word of him bashing BA J among some others (SA etc.) class which is more or less like LY J. Even LH J class is nothing to write home about in some planes...

Dan, I'm am big fan of yours- I'm just being honest

BA J and LH J are known garbage and I've said that, what more should I say about them?

You've said LY 787 Y is better than UA 772 Y, which just about everyone says makes no sense.

There's no need for Dan to write a post about BA and LH not having great J products, that's well known.

So why is LY different? It's also well known. Dan keeps on poking fun at their product...

And yet, here you are saying how amazing the LY 787 Y was...
Nobody ever posts how amazing BA/LH J are.

Nobody said 787 J would not be enjoyable.
