United Airways Brings Plush Polaris Biz Class to Australia


From December this year, United Airlines will be flying its Polaris business class cabins between Australia and the USA.

The upgraded business class cabins by United will be available between the San Francisco and Sydney route from 3 December until 27 March, 2020.

Polaris cabins will be available on the Boeing 777-300ER fleets on direct trans-Pacific flights. The non-stop flights are replacing the airline’s Boeing 787-9 aircrafts and will have a Polaris business class cabin as standard. The spacious area has reduced seats from the 2-2-2 configuration to a 1-2-1 layout with each seat having direct aisle access.




The Polaris cabins have extra storage and working space, a 16-inch HD screen per seat, flat beds, nightwear, bedding and a seat divider between the seats in the middle aisle. The sleek design uses an open plan with the aisle seats offering slightly more privacy.



Passengers can relax in the plush Polaris business class lounge in San Francisco before the 15-hour flight back to Australia.

Passengers can use United’s timetable tracker to search for the 777-300ER flights.

United already operates its Polaris business class between San Francisco and Auckland.
