A320 (56/56-100%) Complete

B744 -187, 193, 194, 195, 196 & 198

I have heard that the 777's Y will indeed have AVOD and will be similar seats to those being tested on the 757 now.

I would be interested in seeing if they install new upper lobe crew rest or something of the sort when they refit them to free up more seats for revenue.

I have also heard that when these aircraft go in for refit, they will be painted (if they are not already, with few exceptions)

I would be interested to hear if anyone else has heard these things as well!

Well, no more Ted-configured aircraft is a start...even last July, my parents found themselves on an A320 from ORD to LAS with no first class! Seems like most of the long-haul international fleet now proudly bears the beautiful new paint scheme, while most of us domestic pax are still subjected to the awful gray colors. The full fleet repaint can't come quickly enough! Oh, and AVOD would be a big step forward for UA, which is rapidly falling behind its international competition in that regard. Has UA explored the option of offering wifi beyond the P.S. fleet? I know the folks that fly from San Fran and LA to New York are important and all, but can't the rest of us enjoy in-flight internet too?? I mean, if AA can put it on their MD-80s, then surely the entire UA fleet could easily support it..

Yes, I do believe that the "test" markets were deemed successful and they are looking at expanding the program.

Has United's customer service or worn, tattered airplanes gotten any better in the past 10 years?

United has always been dreadful, so much so I asked my corporate travel agent to never book me on a United flight ever. Now that I've not been on a United flight since 2004, I'd consider giving them another shot if they've improved.

I'm just glad Continental is becoming a Star Alliance carrier, which works nicely with Singapore Air.

Yes, I fly business class to and from North America, Europe, and South America. Only a handful of our company's senior executives (CEO, CFO, CMO, etc...) are allowed to book company paid travel for 1st class.

I know that there's speculation for 3-3-3 and AVOD and all, but seeing as Feb 2010 is just a few weeks away, has United released any info on what the cabins will look like?

3-3-3 and leather seats are confirmed... AVOD from what I understand is a given but I haven't gotten that confirmed. Power Ports are rumored in Y+...

I saw a blurb, where as I recall it was 7 planes will get crew rest modules added. (this was originally planned in 2008, but delayed to coincide with the IPTE project).

Wow leather seats? I do hope that they spruce up the Y+ cabin just a bit*, it would make justifying the upgrade more worthwhile


*I put in the phrase "a bit" because even as a United FF, I know that United will never upgrade to the likes of VS/BA premium economy

True but I hope by now you and others on here realize that UA Y+ was designed to be a different product then VS/BAs premium economy. Its kind of a unique product to UA, like Chanel 9, that fits its nitch very well.

United1, thank you for your many many posts in support of United. They are much appreciated!

From what I've heard so far on the line, our B777's new "slimline" Economy seats will not be leather-covered; rather, they will have the same navy blue cloth design as our recovered B767 and B747 Economy seats now feature. AVOD will indeed be offered. The first test aircraft with these new seats is due to visit our SFO maintenance center for its refit in just a few weeks. Can't wait!

I would love to invite you back, the new product is amazing and you can really feel the employee pride in product and its reflected in the service.

just remember its only on the 747/767 right now.

I would love to hear your feedback after your first flight.

Thank god. Those slimline seats were alright but for some reason on the demo 757 I was on from Newark to Denver they didn't feature a headrest. I thought that was pretty cheap. The regular 757 seats are very comfortable and I hope UA just decides to recover them instead of replace them in the future.

AVOD is confirmed...the entire reason the 777 fleet was delayed was because they had to get new economy seats to so that the touch screens would fit in for the AVOD system. You cannot break the inflight system in half like you can with the 747/767. The entire aircraft will have the same system (obviously smaller screens in Y)

The 777 seats will be all new, and not refurbs.
The current seats could not be reused in the new IPTE configuration as they dont meet the new stricter FAA 16-g certification standards which took full force in October. The older seats would not allow for much of change in IFE as they could not accomodate bigger screen size either.

I saw a blurb, where as I recall it was 7 planes will get crew rest modules added.

found my notes --- 8 of the current XI(future XJ) planes will get lower lobe crew rest facility, while all current 77P(future XQ) planes with the facility already will see some changes also including inclusion of the IPTE first class suite inside the module.
This will improved the operational flexibility, and allow more 12+ hour missions to be scheduled.

Everything I've read says the 777's get the upgrades starting Feburary 2010. United.com even mentions this. Where is the April 2010 date coming from?

The first plane enters SFO maintenance on February 10 for C check and the upgraded interior. It will be in for three weeks before going through some test operations to evaluate any problems with the new designs.

Has UA explored the option of offering wifi beyond the P.S. fleet? I know the folks that fly from San Fran and LA to New York are important and all, but can't the rest of us enjoy in-flight internet too??

P.S. is often used as a test fleet. Depending on performance and passenger evaluations, it can get put in the rest of the fleet. The addition of internet is offered at the expense of the never used phones.

Has United's customer service or worn, tattered airplanes gotten any better in the past 10 years?

UA has made vast improvements in their interiors. The 777 and 737 (now retired) fleet earned the worst scores, but the 737s are retired and the 777s are going through refits. The rest of the fleet, Airbus, 757, 767 and 747 receive above average industry marks for quality and cleanliness of the cabins.

Quoting Gojetset (Reply 12):

Wow leather seats? I do hope that they spruce up the Y+ cabin just a bit*, it would make justifying the upgrade more worthwhile

777s will get brand new seats with larger PTV screens unlike the other planes.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Yup. UA is well on their way to clearing the leaves and gunk out of the gutters. I fly DL about 3x more than I fly UA but every time I have flown UA in 2008/2009 I have been more than satisfied by the customer service and attitude of their employees.

Yes. I agree. Going through ORD in late December was quite the pleasant experience, dispute the delays. The CSA's, FA's and even the C-F shuttle driver were all in good spirits! Heck, even the BOB looks better now a days.

Quoting Flyua (Reply 14):
From what I've heard so far on the line, our B777's new "slimline" Economy seats will not be leather-covered; rather, they will have the same navy blue cloth design as our recovered B767 and B747 Economy seats now feature

thats a switch but I'm glad they are being consistent and sticking with cloth.

I like the idea of putting leather seats on the plane for shorter domestic flights but long haul I'm glad they decided to go with cloth. It simply breathes better then the leather they use for aircraft seating.
