Video: Flying United’s brilliant Polaris business on the 767 to Chicago

In this video we take a fun two-hour trip from Newark (EWR) to Chicago (ORD) onboard United’s trusty 767-300. We’re in Polaris business class today with a lie-flat seat tailored to international services – far more than you need on a quick flight to Chicago but we’re not complaining.
This aircraft is getting on in years but you wouldn’t know it onboard, with its lovingly refreshed cabin and new, snazzy business seats. The 767 is a fantastically comfortable plane and this seat would be great to fly any distance in. Still, United does have some flaws – watch the video to find out what they were on this flight! Also enjoy some stunning views of New York City, the dystopian surroundings of Newark Airport, the frozen tundra of upstate New York and the Midwest, and Lake Michigan on descent (with the Chicago skyline in the distance).

In this video we take a ride on Etihad’s lovely 787-10 from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi on EY78. Along the way we can’t figure out how to get our connecting boarding pass at Schiphol Airport; we have a chat with the Captain before departure; we get some beautiful views of Holland on the climb out; we test out the Etihad Business Studio seat, service, food and entertainment options; and we enjoy a scenic sunset descent over Iran and the Gulf.

Video: How does SAS transatlantic business class stack up these days

In this video we take a 9+ hour flight onboard Scandinavian Airlines A330 business class from Stockholm (ARN) to Newark (EWR). SAS cut a lot of onboard service and all its long-haul out of Stockholm during the pandemic so it’s nice to see both things coming back, little by little.
