Was called by a family member at SFO for UA and he said that it appears as though United is putting all new seats in their domestic aircraft. The new F is very similar to the current seat though is very modern looking. He also said that he overheard a few guys saying that the PS F seats will become standard on all United widebodies. As for coach, they look sorta funkie. Very pastic-like arm rests. Similar to WN.
The only area that he was not very sure about was Business. While I like United's current business product, it is VERY outdated and if they even feel like running with the rest of the pack, it will need to be updated.
I am personally glad to hear of this move as United has long been critisized for their current F, J, and Y product and having personally seen the current F product in MX, they're a bitch to maintain and even harder to replace yet extremely easy to break. As for J, I have flown their business product across the pond over to Asia and found it to be extemely nice service yet I could have sworn I threw my back out as the seat (or the one that I was sitting in)requires pressure to move (footrest) and a very old motor to power the seat...
If anyone here within United is able to confirm this rumor I would very much like it. If not take this as a pure rumor and nothing more.
