After reading much of the bad press about this plane, I found this seat surprisingly comfortable while flying EWR-SAN. Legroom was sufficient.
Flew KOA to SFO and found the seats were fine. They are marked as red due to no recline, but the seats actually had 3-4 inches of recline. Still disappointed though that United does not have seat back entertainment systems on this plane.
This comment applies to ALL first class seats on United. When it comes to food, although it may be complimentary, UA does NOT follow the "FEBO" (first even, back odd) rule to offer meal choices. Rather, they offer meal choices based on elite status and even if you are paying a FULL FIRST CLASS fare, as I was on this flight, you won't get your first choice of meal unless you are 1K with a higher status than everyone else. American Air is a much better choice, where you can pre-order your meal up to 30 days in advance right on their website, and be certain that you'll get something edible!
Seat pitch is not enough to open a full size laptop even when the seat in front is upright.
This seat should be marked as yellow. The armrest is very small in this version and very inconvenient. The legroom is great but not as good as the version that does not have row 14
The seat doesn't recline and the pitch is less than economy plus. Don't select it. Who ever said that United is cramming in seat was dead on. They used to be a classy airline now so-so
I think the legroom is great on 1A and I am 6' tall... allowed to extend my legs comfortably... The proximity to the galley is not an issue at all, crew work very quietly for a 3 hours flight SFO-SJD. No storage in front of you, but the above compartment is big enough. Very good seat.
I flew 4F on IAD-SEA outbound, and 20D on the redeye return. 20D had no recline at all, but more leg room than first class, so I still rate it as mixed, and worth the economy+ upgrade. I was in 4F outbound, and was underwhelmed at the room. Not really quite enough room to cross your legs comfortably, or stretch out if you have a bag under the seat. Not worth the first class upgrade IMO.
This seat has a slightly misaligned window, but due to the location of the engine cowling this isn't a big deal. The view forward is unimpeded. I would recommend removing the red from this seat.
It was a bulkhead with just normal legroom, the proxminity to the lavratories were bothersome and less seat width and still pretty loud for the front of plane
I can handle limited recline; but the pitch of this seat is ridiculously uncomfortable, especially with this added 3inch head rest pad. If it could be removed maybe that would help. Also due to the angle of the fuselage and the grey box underneath the seats, your footspace is smaller than normal.
This was a decent seat for a domestic first class. It was the older version with no video screens in the seat back in front of you. The meal service was very good and the flight attendants were very nice. I give it an overall 7/10
Fairly decent first class seat with great service and wifi. Wifi was great and was able to play YouTube for 4 hours . Overall I had a good experieNce with united
I was really expecting the worst, but my 6'2, 260lb body fit in this seat OK. Not fabulous on this trans con, but bearable.
This row is directly behind first class but you do have space for a small bag under the seat. The seat is listed as economy plus however the width seems small. Definitley a tight squeeze.
First row window seats have the storage pocket on the wall beside the seat instead of on the bulkhead. It's more roomy than the hard plastic pockets for the aisle seats and more convenient to reach. It made up for the lack of floor storage on my flight. I had access to a large hardcover book, a large tablet, and my headphones case.
Very Cramped seat and legroom was horrible, Flew KMCO to KEWR it was a 2 hour flight and the longest 2 hours of my life.
Took a flight from Washington DC to Boston. Flight was short so it didn't matter that there is really limited leg room. For a longer flight I would have gotten an Economy Plus seat. Also, the guy next to me was super nice.
This is obviously a new concept plane for United, it has removed all the entertainment and shifted this to the customer, with only their WIFI offered. But the real disadvantage is the new seats that are leather and very short and narrow. Likely the most uncomfortable seat I have ever experienced and reminiscent of some I have sat in on A319's. This seat style probably allows for more passenger rows, but I will shop around a flight using this plane.
Flying many years, these seats were the most confining I have ever been assigned. Leg room and under seat storage was very uncomfortable. Every time someone used the bathroom the stench of sanitizer filled the the back of the plane. The staff was excellent and the palne was very new.
