How can you get out of your seat especially when sitting in the window seat? The seat infront is full recline practically on there knees. They look stuck to me. Anyone been in a situation like this before? Is there a easy way to get out w/o waking up the pax?
Plus a little o/t but does anyone one know how good these UA seats are?
Please leave comments.

Wow, that is a close Business seat! Looks like if you stowed the PTV and moved your glasses, plus the girl, you may be able to shimmy by. These seats look like they suck!
On DL Business, even with the person in front of you reclined fully, you still have PLEANTY of room to sit up, get up, reach luggage, what have you. I'm 6'2", and if I sit normally, I can't reach the seat in front of me with my leg fully streched...is kinda nice

These seats are similar to the old cradle seats on BA. They were a bitch to get out of when the seats in front and next to you were reclined. You had to put your own seat upright, use the floor area to steady yourself and step over the seat next to you. I once fell flat on my face trying this manouevre. Very embarrassing as it woke the passenger next to me, exactly what I was trying to avoid. At least with the new Club flat beds they are narrow at the feet end and easier to step over.
The customer is always right.....unless he is a passenger!

I just flew on seat 1A in AM's new B737-800. Total disappointment. It was a 3:45 (block) flight. The passenger in seat 1B was an old gentleman that fell asleep right after boarding in MEX and had to be awakened by the F/A after landing in ATL. The seat is fine, but there's not enough room for your feet - they stop squarely against the bulkhead without the usual lower gap to place them nicely... So both his legs and mine were virtually against the bulkhead for all this time.
Too uncomfy for a business class seat. I'm glad I didn't need to go the lavatory...

Business Class on UA feels really really cramped on the 777's...much more spacious on the 747's. Believe it or not i am surprised that they do 2-3-2 seating on UA biz class in the 777, considering many airlines (such as SQ) do 2-2-2 seating on the 777 in Biz. I felt cramped the whole way in UA from HNL-NRT when i took them...

I have; a really large lady was flying from PHL to BOS on the dorny' jets (FRJ as it is referred to in Delta's timetable).
As most of you know those seats are pretty cramped, a little less than a standard economy seat i believe, but to say the least, she had a tough time getting in and out...they needed a seatbelt extension.

Just flew IAD-LHR with UA in C. The new Club has increased legroom than was in that picture.
When the seat infront is reclined, to get out you would have to stow your PTV before you could easily leave your seat.
I like these seats. Love the back - cycler massage. I am 6 ft 4 so the footrest is too short, but otherwise very comfortable. Prefer them to the new BA things. Overall though, prefer First Suite, but hey, can't have everything!
