United Airlines United Airlines
CommentsThe Boeing 757-200 is probably the nicest configured plane on any U.S. airline domestic route; very spacious seating for 110 passengers, where most other airlines pack in close to 200 seats. This configuration serves the premium routes of SFO-JFK and LAX-JFK only, and is very popular with full-fare passengers.
First Class features slanted flat beds, similar to some top international airline's Business Class, with close to six-feet of space between rows. Business Class also has very generous legroom at 54 inches. Row 9 is a particular favorite of many seasoned travelers, since it has probably more legroom than any other seat on any commercial airline.
United prioritizes meal selection preferences based on Mileage Plus frequent flyer membership status in this order: United Global Service, Premier Executive 100K (1K), Premier Executive, Premier, general members and finally non-members. Flight attendants will pass out the printed menu for First and Business class, and either takes the order based on status by jumping around the cabin, or take orders front to back, notifying lower status passengers that their first choice may not be available before sorting the list in the galley.
Economy Class is configured with all Economy Plus seating, with about 2-3 inches more pitch than most standard Economy Class seats. United serves a complimentary meal on all of the Premium Service routes.
110V outlets are available at every seat, there's no need to bring a special adapter for your laptop computer.
Hand-held DVD players and noise canceling headphones are available for First and Business Class passengers, along with a DVD collection of feature films. Meal service for premium classes approaches the level of better international airlines.
