I was dreading this transatlantic flight from GLA to EWR on a type that I had last flown when it was the shuttle between GLA & LHR. I was pleasantly surprised. When I got the chance to check-in, there were only two standard seat available, both window seats (my preference is aisle). I chose 26A as it was at the trailing edge of the wing while the other seat was over the wing. This seat has access to two windows, although the downward view is limited by the wing. At just short of 6 feet, I found this seat to have sufficient legroom and the space under the seat in front was perfectly sized for my backpack. The seat was comfortable enough for me to not have to readjust my position for comfort reasons during this long flight. I do have two criticisms, one specific to the aircraft I flow on and the other possibly more general. Firstly, the monitor had touch sensitive dead zones one on the right hand side and the other on the bottom right. The result was that I wasn't able to scroll through the movies, etc. as the right arrow was inactive. I was restricted to choosing from the first four movies in each category. The dead zone at the bottom made it difficult to navigate between entertainment options. The second criticism is that the expansion/contraction zone for the overhead lockers is located in the area of row 26. There is a front and rear section of lockers which meet here and they can slide back and forward relative to each other. During take off and landing, when the fuselage is moving around a lot the movement between these two sections causes an ear splitting screech.
The last 3 (38, 39 and 40) rows cannot use the overhead bin to store luggage, as those are restricted for the crew.
Flight from DUB to IAD. Very good seat on this single aisle aircraft. Great service, meals, and video. Unlike on the 777-200 the middle armrest had a small divider. Both flight and cabin crew were excellent.
Best seat in economy as far as I'm concerned. There is Economy Plus legroom plus a cutout thrown in, plenty of space. No seat in front to recline into your face. The seat may be narrower than others but I didn't notice .
The seat did not fully recline on my flight
Almost no at seat storage. The leg of the seat in front is inconveniently placed to start with, then there's a big grey box strapped to it. You might squeeze a small cat in there, but nothing larger.
Entire row 20 seats do not recline due to emergency exit row 21, very bad for overnight/long flights
I think this seat should be yellow. Its right in front of the bathroom and nexr to galley way so when the flught team js working (bagging ice nags around) it can be hard to sleep
Seat 1AB is a bassinet location.
I was pleasantly surprised upon boarding in November to find a lay flat "pod" instead of just a standard seat. It was very comfy, with a great screen and plenty or arm and shoulder room. The leg room was a bit cramped even in lie flat configuration (I'm 6' 1"), so taller folks may want a different seat or airplane. Also, the leg area angles inwards, taking away some side to side leg room. The one big issue is that if you're in the window seat as I was (4A) and the person to your right or left falls asleep in the lay flat configuration, good luck getting out to use the lavatory. You're stuck unless you want to wake him or her up. This will happen with just about any narrowbody first class product so I'm not overtly criticizing United; its just something to be aware of as a passenger. Also, this is really more of a business-class seat and product masquerading as first class on a narrowbody. Again, not meant as a horrid criticism, but it is something to be aware of if you're accustomed to "real" first class. Since I fly first class about once a every other decade if I'm lucky it didn't matter to me and I loved the flight and the overall product, but again its just something to be aware of. The bottom line, I really enjoyed my flight on UAL417 from LAX to OGG. It was a great flight, the seat was very comfortable, the amenities were fine, and the cabin crew was wonderful.
Flew this plane from Denver to Kona. I am only 5'1" and the leg room was cramped - more than other plane types I've flown. The seat was not very comfortable - not much cushioning. My husband in front of me - seat 23A - said he could feel everytime I "poked" the TV screen. I would not fly this plane again. Also, they ran out of decent food - sandwiches/pizza/salad - right before they got to my row and this was a 7 hour flight !!!
The seat was terribly uncomfortable. It's an Exit-Row-style seating configuration with tray-tables in the arm rests. This means the actual width if the seat is narrower than usual. There is also no screen in front of the row for in-flight viewing. Leg room was ample, but I'm a decently large guy, and could barely fit in the seat. This was also the first time I've ever had to use a belt-extender, even though most seats usually have plenty of belt length for me.
Seat pitch is not enough to open a full size laptop even when the seat in front is upright.
Basic aircraft, does the job. Looking a bit dated now compared to the more modern planes.
The seat in front of this one had an electric box underneath, so leg room cramped. The seat had minimal cushioning; the space between back and seat had a gap so whenever person seated behind accessed their pocket I was directly poked in my lumbar region. Weird. Little tv doesn't work well, person behind pushing buttons relentlessly to get video to load caused my head to bounce with every irritated tap tap tap tap tap..the plane was smelly.
Recently flew this aircraft from Newark to Edinburgh, seated in 1A. The 757 is a narrow and cramped aircraft that is not very suitable or comfortable for a 6 1/2 hour transatlantic flight, even in business class. I would try to avoid it in the future for such trips. The galley was brightly lit overnight, with FAs congregating and having loud conversations, from seats 1A and B these noises and sounds are unavoidable and make it almost impossible to sleep. Also avoid aisle seats in Row 4 as they as located very close to a lavatory directly behind.
Tons of leg room in this bulkhead seat. Entertainment screen mounted on side and lifts up, similar to the in-armrest tables. The bathroom is further forward, so you don't get the sound of toilet flushing and door opening & closing like you do on a 737 or Airbus 320.
Awesome red eye flight experience. I thought that it would be cramped and weird inside a narrowbody for a 7.5 hour flight. But it was the opposite. It was an amazing flight, and Polaris was really nice and comfortable. The seat was really comfortable, and reclined into a fully flat bed. It had an outlet to the right of the seat, so I charged my laptop. Really enjoyed the 757 and the Polaris. I slept during the whole flight, I would take it again.
There legroom issue noted was not too bad however the entertainment system on this plane was not working for the majority of passengers. They activated the onboard wifi for all passengers however I could get was movie previews and not the actual movies. Disappointing considering the two hour delay plus flight time from SFO to EWR.
Great legroom but United has replaced the bulkhead seats with narrower seats to get more people on the plane. I'm average in size (5'9" & 150 pounds) and almost don't fit. Awful seats.
