I recently splurged and upgraded to businessfirst on Continental from SAN-EWR-POP. SAN-EWR were standard domestic seats (but roomy and comfortable for a redeye). We were treated to a surprise on the EWR-POP leg. The 757 had been outfitted with its new lie flat seats. What a dream! The seats were comfy, reclined into all sorts of positions (it was a morning flight so we didn't lie flat) the entertainment was top notch, the screen huge, and more leg room than you knew what to do with (I managed.) The nice touch was that the seats are angled towards the windows, so when we weren't playing with all the gadgets, we were treated to the view out the window. (I've never understood the airlines that angle the seats away from the windows such that you have to crane your neck to get a view).

Anyway, we were smitten. And what a difference in energy level arriving after such a comfortable flight. The pilot announced the flight would be 3 hours and some minutes. I asked the flight attendant if he could please make it four hours.

I can't wait to try their product on their 787s with those big windows. I think it will be quite impressive.

Glad to hear you were able to enjoy the flight!

Isn't it wonderful to treat yourself to luxury every once in a while? The small things in life that make all the difference!

Excellent, nice to hear good news. I've got a few B772 and B752 trips in the near future so I'm hoping to get the same luck as you and be on a ship that has the new seats.

Looking to be on one of the first IAH-AKL trips for sure.

I did IAH-NRT-IAH in April with both flights being the lie-flats. Wow, they are nice! I had flown our 757 and 777 with the old recliner style seats in BF and what a difference the new one make! I slept at least 7 hours of the 11 1/2 hour return from NRT!

Well, if you are flying BF, you will get them. As of June 1st, every CO aircraft to/from EWR/IAH-LHR are lie-flat equipped.

Glad you enjoyed the seats! I've lucked out and had the new seats on my last three 777 flights of EWR-PVG, PEK-EWR, and EWR-DEL. The older BF seats are now quite outdated and definitely pale in comparison to the new ones. I wrote a trip report for my China trip and should probably also write one for my India trip   Seats aside, the food in CO's BF is great!

I saw a news article in the local paper and they use that cabin on the BFS-EWR service, I thought also how great it looks.

The new biz seat in the 757 is extremely comfortable. I prefer this class of service much more than the biz class product on the new A380 with AF!
