Very cramped business seat on this flight, almost claustrophobic. I'm 5'10", weigh about 183 pounds and was not comfortable at all. The diminutive 5' 3" woman next to me asked if I'd taken the flight previously. I asked why she wanted to know and she said, "Because this seat is so cramped. Is it always like this?" You don't get a lot for your money here, and Economy Plus may be a better way to go.
Seat Guru's statement that this is a "standard business class seat" is so wrong. Eight across is not "standard" -- never was, never will be. It is almost worst than coach--lack of room, lack of storage, lack of egress. HORRIBLE.
Good Economy Plus seat behind the first row of Economy Plus seating. This aircraft does have Premium Plus seating not yet depicted on this seat map. Rows 20-22 are now Premium Plus, rows 23-30 are skipped/not there, and Economy Plus starts at row 32 through row 37.
Best Economy Plus seat I've ever had. I didn't even chose it. United has been switching planes on the route from EWR to GRU and I was given this seat the day before the flight. So much legroom, it felt luxurious. And there's a wall right in front which divides Economy Plus from Business. I was able to put my feet up on and and actually slept on the flight, which I usually never do. If your flight is on this plane, grab this seat if you can.
Position in aircraft exhibits constant vibration at cruise. Using the iOS Vibration App. It peaks at about 10Hz with the accelerometer Y and Z axis have g amplitude of 0.5g with a period of 0.1 secs. In the Z axis the vibration is modulated with a longer period. = engine vibration :)
The overall seat was great, the only thing that passengers may want to note is that you can't really see the wing from the window. I, being and AvGeek, hoped to capture some good pictures of the wing and engine sitting so far up the plane, but unfortunately, the only thing visible from the window if you look all the way back is the tip of the wing. On the way back, I sat in row 2 and I was able to see both the engine and the wing.
Very cramped Economy Plus section with window seat. I traded 26C on the aisle because the entertainment screen was not working for 26C and I didn't mind not having the screen on that leg of my trip (IAD - AMS). This aircraft is showing much wear and tear. The seats are firm and there was no wifi on UA20 or the return UA21. Latches and hinges are loostening and the carpet and seat fabrics are really worn.
galley light is disturbing, and the interior lights don't fully extinguish so very bright. row 2 in 1st class is darker. If I had to do it again seat 2A and 2C are the best.
The worst business cabin ever with 4 middle seats. May be good to deceive domestic crowd but these seats need to be taken out and replace with the new polaris 1-2-1 configuration. I have no idea why United mention this cabin as polaris business as this is old continental/united configuration. Even Turkish uses 3 middle rown on the 777-300ER and I feel that cramped. If you pay a premium you deserve a better seat and space. Still UA uses this cabin for ORD-HKG, ORD-chinese destinations, before you book check seat config to make sure you get new polaris-not even the new dreamliner have new polaris even for the 17 hour flight from LAX-SIN, as it is 2-2-2 and the window seat has to climb over the person at the isle. New polaris 1-2-1 is superb but the rest of the configurations are sardine packed business cabins like Oscar used to pack cargo while he was at CSX.
I didn't take this seat because of the warning on this website, but I went to check it out and this seat DOES HAVE A WINDOW! I would definitely recommen this seat. It looked great.
The tv screens on this plane are absolutely tiny! Also the touchscreen is quite unresponsive. Make sure to bring a table with the United app installed because this allows you to watch the entertainment selection on your own screen. This seat is pretty standard. I'm not sure if it was worth paying extra for the economy plus.
4 seats across in the middle section of business class means that if you are in the middle two, you need to climb over the person sitting next to you in order to go to the bathroom. Not what you would expect on a business class fare. Don't even try it unless you're physically quite mobile. I would rate all the middle seats in business as yellow due to this design problem. Additionally, seats were really narrow- felt like I was lying in a coffin.
Flew from SFO to LHR. Business class is incredibly cramped. I've never had to fight for elbow room or somewhere to put my drink in business class before. Impossible to avoid being woken by my neighbor when he got up to use the restroom. Zero storage around the seat, not even for a water bottle.
My least favorite configuration for united business class. This seat is particularly weird because you will find yourself staring across the aisle at another passenger facing you. There is very little storage in any of the seats on this aircraft. Noise from galley/lav not bad at all in this seat.
Flew from Wash Dullus to Brussels. 6K is a good seat due to some extra space between the fuselage and the seat itself so pillow and heavt blanket could be stored. this is a quiet seat as the more the front you are the further away from the galley(kitchen) and the crew talking heads.
Compromised leg space due to electrical box underneath the seat
I didn't find this seat to have much privacy at all, especially since every time you looked in the general direction of the galley you would make eye contact if anyone was there. I found the crew to be excellent but they were a very chatty group so it definitely wasn't a quiet seat either but given the number of people near me who had no trouble sleeping, perhaps it's just isolated to this row? For comparable purposes, I found the equivalent seat on a BA 777 to be 100% more private as they have the screens between the seats and you can't see anyone in the aisle while the divider is up.
The bulkhead seats (row 32 on my flight) had a panel underneath them, so the legroom from my seat (33A) was restricted. Not much room for putting a bag under the seat and certainly not enough space to straighten my legs.
19G is an Economy Plus seat with plenty of legroom. I couldn't find this seat's power outlet (so my kind neighbor let me use hers).
United packed 8 business seats in a row in a 2-4-2 configuration. The seats were indeed lie flat but were actually a step back compared to pre-solaris era. They were, or at least had a feel to be tight. No space for personal belonging. My purse had to go in the overhead bin. Charging outlets were in the front of the seat divider, pretty much guaranteeing that you cannot charge an ipad when toy are lying flat ( older seats had charging outlets behind the seat, where your head was.) Also another change for worse - the buttons changing seat position were placed side by side for adjoining seats. In the middle of the night when I tried to raise my head rest, I incidentally raised my neighbor's. Not impressed with my Polaris experience
