In yesterday’s post on United’s new 787 serving Denver – Tokyo, I noted that the schedule was live and thus a 787 seatmap was online that you could access when making a (dummy) booking.
But the seatmap looked odd, since it had more seats available than the announced configuration of the aircraft was supposed to hold, and the seatmap didn’t specifically flag economy plus.
Seth notes in the comments on that post that overnight United has updated the seatmap, and these problems appear fixed.
Here’s the new seatmap:

It’s interesting that there’s no center section of seats in row 16, but that the center section of row 23 is economy plus (while the right and left sides are not), and that the row 27 exit seats are considered economy plus seats… also that the two final rows — 37 and 38 — are center seats only. Talk about exposure to lavatory traffic!
