United Business Plus...Premium Business

Mon Aug 13, 2001 5:53 am

United has many old F seats from 36+ 747-400s and some 777s in the warehouse that have been replaced with First Suites.

These seats are similar to United Business seats, but have near-flat recline, are designed for 64" of pitch, and have a little more luxuries (burr-wood paneling, wider seat, Personal Video System).

Why not make use of them? I think. There could be an even more enhanced Business section with 64" pitch instead of 55", and wider 2-2-2 seating.

As United likes the "Plus" gimmick, this section would be called Business Plus.

It would replace the first two rows of Business on the 777 with 2-2-2 (which already have an extra 5" of room), and the upper deck of the 744 with 2-2 config. The upper deck already feels pretty exclusive, and is the preferred place to sit for Business passengers.

Full-fare Business passengers would be placed here first.

The regular United First seat (now found only on 767-300 International Aircraft):


767-300 International First Class flights would be rebranded United Business Plus.

You have a premium section for every class. Imagine...

He *has* a point though :P :P :P

I'd rather see the seats in the 727 fleet... i don't mind the leather seats on all my flights between Ft Laud and Chicago, but these seats would be KICK ASS for the 72 fleet :P :P :P
