Flying from Tokyo (NRT or HND) to San Francisco (SFO or SJC). Options?

Jump to last reply

DH and I are flying from Tokyo to the SF Bay Area nonstop on or about October 1, 2017 using business class (saver, I hope) award tickets (miles transferred from Chase Ultimate Rewards). I am trying to determine our options and get our priorities lined up to pounce the first day of availability, which I think is 330 days out. The UA site currently shows three non-stops per day (departure times are similar):

All Nippon 777-300 ER
UA 787-9 Dreamliner
UA 747-400

Is there a code share on another airline I should consider?

I'm hoping you knowledgeable flyers will help me find the best way to book our tickets (through UA, the Chase Portal, All Nippon, another way?) and the best business class experience on this route. If you need further information, please let me know.

When I asked a similar question about flying from SF to Europe last year, several of you made suggestions, and we ended up on a great flight. I'm in awe of your expertise and appreciate your input.
