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

Hey, what can you do when everyone else is asleep until 2PM from being out too late the night before?! I'm an early bird... ack but that 56K connection was horrible. Thank goodness now I'm ho ho home again with my beloved cable connection. Can't wait till a week when I'm at my school residence and have wireless ethernet! SA-WEEET!

Well, does anyone think this is a good idea?
