United Airlines completes redesign of Premium Service fleet

NEW YORK —

United Airlines has completed an extensive redesign of 15 Boeing 757-200s.

The revamped aircraft now offer 28 180-degree flat-bed United BusinessFirst seats, offering up to 6’4” of sleeping space and more room for storage; 42 extra-legroom United Economy Plus seats; and 72 United Economy seats.

Designed to give customers an experience comparable to long-haul, international flights, United’s refurbished premium service aircraft also feature:

• Inflight Wi-Fi

• Personal, on-demand entertainment at every seat – with 15.4” monitors in United BusinessFirst and 9” monitors in United Economy – offering hundreds of movies and television shows, plus other entertainment options

• Power outlets and USB ports at every seat

• Two additional inches of legroom in United Economy Plus compared to Economy Plus legroom on pre-renovation service

• Multi-course meals in United BusinessFirst on most flights

• Wine selections recommended by Doug Frost, United’s Master Sommelier and Master of Wine, including half bottles of premium wines for purchase in United Economy

“Our investment in these aircraft and in the p.s. service will add greatly to our flyer-friendly customer experience on these coast-to-coast flights,” said Jeff Foland, United’s executive vice president of marketing, technology and strategy. “This is just one more example of the many things we are doing to provide greater onboard comfort and convenience on every United flight.”

    No matter how much hardware you upgraded, U have no "HEART" ware, as your customer service, check in and in flight service is terrible. Stop flying UA since 2000.

    I would have to disagree with J Tan's comment. In the past week I have flown United twice and both were very good. We also needed to change our flight back home and we stopped at their United Ticket center in Guam. We already knew we would pay a fee for the change, but the lady who handled it for us was excellent and worked to get us the best available flight. In the past I avoided United like the plaque, however in light of this past week's experience they are back on my list of airlines to fly. The seating was comfortable (Economy Plus) and both took off on time and arrived early. The one to Narita was actually 30 minutes early. The staff were friendly and genuine in their efforts to make the flights enjoyable. Thanks for a great experience. J Tan it's been 13 years, maybe you should give them another try.
