This is a great bulkhead seat. The wall between first class and economy does not go all the way to the floor, leaving about 1ft of clearance for a bag to slide under the first class seat in front, and still leaving a comfortable amount of let room (I’m 6’3”).
Beware tall 1st class customers. I am 6'4", 235 lbs. and seats were very uncomfortable. Several issues. The food tray does not extend out far enough when open. It was right up against my stomach and with the meal tray it was even worse. Leg room is marginal at best and I found the cushions extremely hard. I flew 1st class on AA to my destination. It is now my preferred airline.
the Second row seats on United on Most A319's DO NOT RECLINE At least on the Denver Billings route planes
Seat 8D is in Economy Plus, advertised with a 34 inch seat pitch. This planed seems to have the newer Recaro seats, and the seat felt a bit roomier than traditional seats with this pitch. I am 5'11, and my knees will touch the seats on small sets, but this was plenty roomy. There was enough room to comfortably accommodate a small laptop computer without being too cramped. The extra charge for this seat is money well spent, since recent experience in seats further aft suggest a much more cramped experience.
Seat 2E is a good first class seat with ample elbow space, leg room, and recline, although a bit old and without much contour or posture support as one finds it with modern higher-grade airplane seats. It was my bad that I overlooked the SeatGuru warning No TV because I couldnt believe a first class seat on an international flight (CAN-USA) came without ANY entertainment. From my frequent international flights with other non-American airlines I was used to the formula the higher the class, the bigger the screen and the more generous the entertainment offering. Not so with UA deploying this plane. I was confined to watching movies on my little smartphone screen because thats where I happened to have installed the UA app. Without the latest app, no movie. And they charge extra for wireless access needed to stream videos.
Not a bad first class seat. The wall behind the seat does not interfere with recline, but the seat cushion slides forward when reclining.
Horrible seat. Not wide enough for anybody and no leg room at all. Could not even bend down and get my bag from under the seat in front. Forget trying to cross your legs! Had to lower the seat arms to scoot across to get out. Very uncomfortable.
I made the mistake of returning to economy class on a United Airlines Boeing 737. The seats are very hard (it is usual in the Boeing 737) and the space between seats is very small (in United it is below the average). After 3 hours of flight, a large part of the economy passengers spent long periods on feet in order to survive. There are individual screens but only usable for those who pay at least US $ 7 to watch the Direct TV programming.
This was the worst airplane seat I've had in my long life as a traveler. I measure 1.80 meters (5 ft, 10.8 in), so my height is slightly above average, but my legs did not fit. The flight was a real torture of 5 hours and 10 minutes.
Kind of shocked at how much space I had - I could cross my legs (I'm 6'2). I for one like the new Recaro seating and the padding on the bottom is still better than an exit row. Had an empty middle next to me so it helped but three across with family would be a no brainer as far as transcon or Hawaii (if only they flew that far). Eco Plus sure beats the pants off of AA MCE. My tail was N896UA, a year out of retrofit, and still was the absolute cleanest plane I've ever been on. It's no Jet Blue Extra Space, but like I said, II'm a little shocked, in a good way..
Worse plane in the United fleet. It was old, loud, and just down right awful. As my first (and last) time on a United Airbus i have now determined I will always fly Boeing. If you want to walk off a flight with good knees and ears avoid the Airbus.
This area has been updated by United and the coat racks are now behind row 2. This allows for a decent amount of additional legroom in this row. The lack of underseat storage was more bothersome to me personally.
Seat is pretty comfortable but in no way is it lie flat. If you're tall your feet will bump the bulkhead but for me (5ft10) it was fine. Nice in flight service made up for the seat's slight shortcomings and I was first off the plane, which was nice. How you enjoy this seat will depend on your expectations!
The regular Economy in this plane features some of the smallest seats I've ever seen on any plane. Luckily, I'm in an empty row but can't imagine how tight this would be on a full flight. On the outbound, I paid for Economy Plus, but there was a chubby guy next to me and it was tight. Also, my elbow hurts from how it hits against the window wall when I'm typing.
Worst experience ever! I had the misfortune of having to fly United from San Francisco to Chicago's O'Hare on this dreadful A319. I am 5' 10" and average build and I felt extremely cramped. The seats on this plane are so uncomfortable I think i would have preferred to sit on a park bench. My lower back began to hurt mid flight. I am 25 years old and I have never had back pain. The poor old lady sitting next to me was basically suffering the whole flight. To make matter worse there was no in flight entertainment system and United charges exorbitantly for wifi by the hour (not that I had space to use my ipad or macbook anyway). And the flight had no hot food to offer despite their food menu and only had pretzels and a snack box. I was given a measly cup of ginger ale (not the whole can). Like wow! I fly JetBlue out of my hometown NYC and the experience is soooo much better. United is inhumane...Why on earth would anyone would choose to fly with them?
Very pleasant 3-1/2 journey from ORD to MEX. The seat was comfortable and reclined more than I thought it would. The crew were pleasant and i could actually eat the food.
The window seat protrudes a bit into the shoulder and arm area. It was a bit annoying.
Den to Phx flight, really liked new seats on the A319. Not an Airbus fan, but this flight was quiet and seat very comfortable.
There was power available, but there was NO cutout for additional foot space. Could not extend my legs all the way and I'm only 5'7". Somewhat limited storage overhead as well as the bulkhead no storage under seat in front.
There is good floorboard space for row 7, despite it being first row of economy plus.
