I recently flew on a UA 757 ORDBOS, and I chose a seat in Economy Plus-- 13F. To my dismay, it was a row without a window! So I'm starting a list of "iffy" seats on all UA aircraft. Just so everyone can have a little information before seat selection!

Example: UA Boeing 757
9A,9B,9C (exit row with door slide, psgrs queueing for lavatory)
13A, 13F (no window)

etc.

Thanks for your help!

Jeff

Avoid 14A of 14H in business class on the 777. One window that you have to almost swivel your head around to see out of. One seat to DEFINATLY get if you can is 15A on a 747-400 (upstairs, business class). Loads of leg room as your behind the emergency exit.

12-14 (varies) are usually windowless on 757s so that u dont get killed by a fan blade if there is an uncontained engine failure.

I don't like 8DE on the 757'S, but I disagree with you on 9ABC.
8DE is cramped and 8e really bites.

ummm, not true.

Actually, there is no window there because the conditioned air risers come up through that part of the fuselage ... same thing on 767s

I have to disagree about UA's 9ABC on a 757. Those seats have move leg room than any other on any plane. I'm tall as well, I'll take others queing up to use the lav any day so long as my legs can strech to the max.

Maybe so, but the a/c risers do go up thru the fuselage there so maybe it's a bit of both. The had to put them somewhere.

L.1011, will having no window really stop a thrown blade, weighing over 2 tons when spinning at power....doubtful. I wish they would put a window there, it is very dissappointing to look forward to a flight, only to have no window.

Where were the conditioned air risers located on the 737-200, the 727, and the 707? They didn't have any missing windows.

It's clear by any of those 'cutaway' renderings....it's air pac risers.
