My pervious TR:

The day of the flight:

As I return from Montevideo in the morning, it was a long day for me because I'd needed to back to Buenos Aires by the Ship of Buquebus from Colonia del Sacramento (2 hours of driving from Montevideo+1 hour ship journey to Buenos Aires Port) and after this long time I had also needed to pack and orgnaize my suitcase in my apartment.
I arrived to Buenos Aires at 13:00 and I went to eat lunch with my family. After that I took a break from the presure at Santa Fe Ave (Great Ave with shops and cafes). I returned to my apartment in Palermo Viejo by the Subte to pack my clothes.
I took a taxi (In Buenos Aires you should reserve a taxi by phone) for 16:00 to Ezeiza Intl Airport (1 hour journey, price 200 pesos).

At the Airport:
Ezieza Airport is nice and pleasure. The design of the airport remind my AYT Airport Design (I've visited in Antalya 7 times!).
The airport accses is comfortable and clean. As I premier 1K customer, I did the check-in in the Business Class counters. When I arrived to the check-in counter, I'd asked for upgrading to Business Class. She told me that I can by miles or money (I don't remember how much). At the end, I decided to stay in the economyplus section that I found it very comfort.
After the fast check-in, security checks and the passport control, I'd arrived to the Airside. The duty free where very nice, but not like in TLV/FRA/ZRH/BKK/SFO…
Some shots before entering to the lounge:

Something spiceal at EZE: If you buy in the duty-free shops, you can recive your buy in the gate!!!

After staying in UNITED AIRLINES LOUNGE, which was nice at all and not crowded, at 19:30, we walked to gate 9 to our flight. Flight to USA had more security check befroe entering to the gate, after that, we had recived our duty free objects: Chocolates and Alcohol bottels.
The plane were Boeing 767-300 with wingtails, with new and refresh cabin like the 764 and some of the 752/777. Before the flight, I'd excepted for old plane with old TV and to uncomfterable flight - Like United 763 routes to destantions like Zurich, Paris, London-LHR etc. But this economy class were the best that I've fly and I flew with a lot of airlines like TK,LY,UA,CO,LX,LH,TG,AR,AC…
Boarding for brand-new cabin 767 (with wingtails):

1. I think that this route was the longest route of UA 763 ever (duration of 11h10m).
2. United cancelled the route at the end of 2013, I think that this desicion was horrible, because this route was profitable for United and customers that fly on this route could enjoy for great connections to USA, Canada, Europe….

At the near gate an Boeing 763 of LAN parked, after short flight from Santiago de Chile, next to us I saw, only in the 2nd time, EK plane (777-200LR) that arrived form long flight from Dubai via Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.

In United new IFE (772/763/764/752) You can use the PTV from gate to gate, so I decided to search some movie to enjoy.
It's rare to see movie in Hebrew

Dinner was served by the nice and the warm crew 1 hour after take off. The meal was very tasty and included beef with potato, big salad, nice cake and bun, with drinks.

I've decided to see The Amazing Spiderman movie.

The crew offerd water durning the flight, the offered snacks and sandwiches between the meals.
After the movie ended, I decided to play some games and after that I went to sleep. I woke up over Kingston,Jamica (I saw the city), but I felt sleep again and I woke up over South Carolina, when the crew had switched light on, for breakfast (Snack).
There was a lot of legroom (36):

The breakfast was light meal, and Included fresh fruits, croissant and butter, like United flight to/from Europe/South America (Flight to TLV have a real breakfast).

Please fasent your seatbelt!

One of my favorite flight to USA that me and my familiy use this flight a lot from TLV - Red-eye flight UA91 on Boeing 777-200ER, always parked at gate C138:

After leaving the plane, I went to the immigration, I've been waiting 50 minutes on the line because a lot of Intl flight landed from cities like Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Lonodn-LHR, Sao Paulo, Hong Kong etc.
I put my suitcase on the belt again and I transferd to my flight to YYZ - Next flight report!

Thanks for reading the report, please left a comment below

After a lot of flights with UA to the USA, this flight was the best. The new cabin, the PTV that more modern than the 772, the warm crew that was respectable and gave us water every 30 min. This was my 1st flight on the 767-300, I agree that the 767 is old plane and the 787 is better and more cheap to operate - But with the wingtails and the new cabin, the plane looks like 2 years old plane, not like the 767 of El Al, that flown to far destantions like Toronto, Mumbai, Beijing, Jo'Burg, Bangkok and Boston from 6/28/2015 - they have the old design of the 767 and don't offer IFE!!! It is terrible for 12 hours flight to Toronto at the same time Air Canada operate 788 to Tel Aviv.
UA'S ecomomy plus is a great product for cheap price for who don't have Mileage Plus Card - 109$ for middle seat and 129$ for window/alise seat. As I have premier 1K card, I can seat in the economy plus for free, plus that I can book for 8 passengers economy plus upgrades for free!!! It is wonderful for big groups and families!

One thing that was bad it's the breakfast - In my opnion, to serve only croissand and fresh fruits for breakfast on 11 hours flight, It isn't enough, Think about this solution, United.
For summary, I really enjoyed from the flight and I sure that I'll fly united Again.

Thank you for reading this Flight - Report,
Yonatan Paz

    Hi , thanks for this report even if you flew quite a long time ago !

    The IFE looks good as weel as the pitch.

    The catering was good according to you , but its presentation is below standards with plastic boxes and a plain green salad. I agree about the breakfast which is not suited for such a long flight. UA could have provided you with something more consistent and hot food.

    Good to hear that the crew was great and strolling the cabin with water and not hiding behind curtains as it happens sometimes. It makes all the difference.

    Hello Yonatan, thanks for sharing this trip!

    Nice to see that UA gave a decent product on your flight, on the other hand, they are pretty lame compared to other airlines on flights to the north of South America. Its a shame they cannot keep a consistent product.
