United Airlines Old 747-400 First Class Seats

Thu Dec 21, 2000 6:42 am

Has anyone flown this seat?

Does the legrest go parallel to the floor?

Is the legrest electrical?

Is the recline hydro?

Is it comfortable?

Does it recline far?

Does the legrest stretch for taller people?

Thank-you!

If you're talking about the new seat design which they are now replacing, I can help ya' out! I've flown on it many-a time!

The seat is extremely comfortable, all electric controlls, and both the seat back and leg rest nearly go to 180 deg. The legrest stretches out far-I'd say a good 3.5 feet or so. Far enough that I can have it fully extended, and still not be able to touch the bottom (I'm 6').

The seat controls are easy to see, use, etc., and the PTV with personal video player, lumbar, phone, and adjustable reading lamp make the seat just that much better.

Gotta love that seat...

Aahh...the OLD old ones!

Flown on those two...

They are nice and comfy (not hard, as they've been 'worn in'), and VERY cozy. All features are electronic, with the same amount of recline/legroom/etc. as the "new-old" First seats.
