UA Window Seat Question

Sun Oct 04, 2009 4:26 pm

Hello everyone:

I am flying on UA LAX-HNL on the 8th of this month. I just upgraded to Economy Plus on this 767-300 flight (US configuration). I was given seat 14A. My concern is whether this seat actually has a window or not. According to SeatGuru, it does - while the rows immediately in front and behind it do not actually have windows - just plugs. Is this SeatGuru information accurate?

The LAST thing I want is to get to my 14A 'window' seat to find a solid wall staring at me.  Sad

Please help, anyone who knows - likely UA flight attendants or frequent fliers.

Thank you!!!

If you look at photos of B-767-300's, thay all seem to have a few windows missing, just forward of the wing. Very annoying... i know!!! Im inclined to agree with what SeatGuru says.... no window! Sad

I gotta say here:

LAX-HNL is entirely overwater. What exactly would you be missing?

Thats not the point!!! Some of us like a window... regardless of what is to view outside! What is been asked however, is will he have a window or NOT!

Are there more than 1 row of E+ on a UA 763? If so, ask the agent to help you out.  twocents

1) Takeoff
2) Climb
3) Decent
4) Landing

I have never been to Hawaii before and I would like to be able to see it from the air.

I've not flown this domestic configuration, but I also checked seatexpert.com and they show rows 13, 15 and 16 as missing windows so you should be fine in 14. I hope a crew member clarifies your question because many of us understand your question and concern. Thanks to the follow-up of another poster, this very question was answered for me several months ago concerning the DL 767ER row 15. While Airstud may assume there also is nothing to see on a 9 hour transatlantic flight during daylight but blue sky and water, I was able to move to another row and enjoyed the "sights" for almost 10 hours.
Enjoy your view!

Row 14 on the 2-class 767 is no worries. The windows at this row work just fine.

Hey everyone!

I just got back from Hawaii (and am very sad). And yes, 14A is a GREAT seat with one and a half windows! I would highly recomment it to anyone wanting a view and great Economy Plus legroom. The only bad thing was the old seat, which was quite uncomfortable for my back. But, nothing a pillow can't fix.

Thanks again for all the helpful info!

So if there is not a window on a "window seat", Seatguru will let you know? That is my biggest worry when I fly.

Yes, assuming the airine / aircraft type is loaded in Seatguru.

You can refer to seatguru and seatexpert.com who highlight or color code seats with no window or windows misaligned to a row. Seatexpert actually colors the window square in red to denote no window exists.
You can also ask on this forum for more detailed seat information if you still question either of these websites - and while, for the most part very accurate, a cabin layout may not be as detailed as specifics you may want. Everyone on this forum are helpful and understand a person's interest in specifics to their flight. I try to help answer a question if I can, as I've been helped as well, and appreciate someone taking the time to clarify a question or concern for me.

On seat Guru, place the cursor on the seat of choice....or any of them..... and you get a short sentence or two about the seat.
