UA 737-500....

Wed Apr 07, 2004 4:17 pm

Later this month, I will be flying from YYC to SFO on UA 737-500 in the economy section (cause I am a poor college student Smile). Can anyone tell me what the plane interior is like and if the seats are any good on these tiny suckers???
Also, I am then flying a 757-200 with UA from SFO to SNA....any takers on this one too??

Thanks....

YEGac,
get in the exit row...that is by far the best row in UAs 500 fleet....also any seat in front of row 16 is good on the ua 57.....most of the ua 500s are outfitted with e+ so if u can snare a seat forward of row 10 than your set...
bus driver.......move that bus:)

Go to http://seatguru.com. Wait for the full screen to load. Go to the left hand column, and click "United". On the next screen, find 737-500 or 757-200 and click. The information provided should be helpful.

The 37's are yucky, the 57's are comfy.

Another great site with detailed info is http://www.seatmaps.net. The maps there are a little more precise, up to date and they load more quickly.

The 737-500's aren't that bad! I like landing @ SFO,you come right over the bay real low. I flew SFO-SNA in Decmber on a UA 757 . SNA is a real nice airport! Super modern,clean and organized . When you leave,the check-in is mostly thru the EZ Check-in units . The security line can get pretty long for the early departure rush . Also,taking off from SNA is always an experience,too!

I flew a UA 735 a couple of years ago. It was fine- about average. I consider the 737-300/400/500 to be the epitome of bland airplanes. BUT- it's comfortable, familiar, smells like a real airplane, and safe. Not as 'cush' as a 319, but hey... don't get me started.

It's a fine, if dull, ride.
