MY FEET WERE FREEZING! Pack socks!
Horrible seat. Between the absence of recline (1st row of exit) and the presence of a protruding dysfunctional semi-armrest attached to the exit, it is impossible to assume a natural relaxing position. You are forced to squeeze at an angle. After 4.5 hours of this torture, I came out limping. If you have to sit there, bring your bottle of ALEVE pills. You will need them. SeatGuru: Change to RED
Seat 12F is not ecomony plus. it's a shorter length seat than even regular coach. Horrible.
The power receptacles were not in a handy place. Seats are tight, so if you are a heavier person bring a seat belt extender with you.
They have made row 14 (or looks like added it) and row 15 Economy Plus that you can upgrade to, which we did and it was a huge mistake because there is no leg room. You cant even bend over to get things out of your carryon. It's terrible.
No window mean blank wall (WHY?), except for the very small sliver of mis-aligned window from Row 10. Although we flew a night flight, I'd thought we'd have SOME window to view landing/take-off. I took a photo I'd like to submit. Legroom was good even for my 6'4" husband.
horrible seat, seat did not recline at all
Middle seat near the back. I'm 6'0" and on most other planes I have about an inch gap. Middle seats are "tolerable." This time I was forced to sit straight up and my knees still touched the back of the seat. Worst plane I've ridden in a long time. Clearly a United cattle shuttle.
LAX-HNL First class? Yeh First class in the 1980s more like. To add insult to injury there is not even lounge access at LAX after a 12 hour flight from FRA! Service excellent however, food....not so excellent.
This window seat does recline but has no window!
Flew in 3F from SFO to ORD. Leather seat with adequate legroom & width. Recline was OK for this 4 hour daytime flight. Would not want it for sleeping or very long flight. There were 2 lunch choices but they ran out of one by the time they got to me in row 3.
Extra legroom due to bulkhead. Under seat storage in front because bulkhead does not go all the way to the floor.
The restroom between first and economy is ridiculously small. I am 177 cm and 89 kg, and never thought of myself as being fat or otherwise "oversized", but I had a very hard time just figuring how to turn around in this restroom. Also, the recline in 5F is microscopic; I was on an upgrade coupon, and got what I was paying for, but if I had bought First Class, I would be shocked at the lack of comfort of those seats.
Theres some kind of server infrastructure taking up the 28DEF half of the overhead bin - no room at all for bags. It also has very loud fans, so 28D is a poor choice if you want to get some sleep.
Even though this seat is an economy plus seat it doesn't have much more leg room than standard economy seats. The close proximity to the lavatory may be bothersome since there will most likely be a line when the seatbelt sign is off.
737-900 no Eco plus seat configuration. Recline on seats on row 15 are restricted.
First Class fare for this kind of seat, and the amenities provided, is a complete, giant RIP OFF. We flew a 757 out from SFO to NYC; that was truly luxurious first class, with nice over the ear headphones, great -- fantastic! -- food, and wonderful service. In the 737, you get Direct TV. Not on-demand, it is whatever is "on" at the time. Yes, you get commercials too. They give out crappy little earbuds that sound absolutely awful. The food was disgusting: a choice between a fish dish and a vegan dish!! What the heck is that? Butternut squash manicotti? Seriously? Disgusting! And, as far as the seat goes, you get good width, but the recline is barely a little more than a normal coach seat. There is no foot rest. Overall, not at all worth it! Save your money.
31E has no window or only partial window extending from row 32.
Old plane with very uncomfortable seats even in business class (business price without comfort). No foot rest at all. Limited recline. No TV or direct TV service to personal device.
The seat backs are so bad for storage...the pouch for personal items is almost on the floor. The net to hold things is unprivate mesh less than 12 inches deep....the underseat storage could hardly hold a purse....but United tookmpreciuos space below the tv screen for their promotional magazine etc.
