United Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

CRJ-700 - Economy Class

I would sugggest rows 17 or 18 (if possible) on the CRJ-700 jet operated by Skywest. The seat may not have any recline, but the flights are very short and sweet. There is plenty of legroom because you are a bulkhead row. You must lean forward to see out the window, but that is no biggy. Also, since nobody ever books these seats first, most of the time, you have two seats to yourself. So if you are traveling on a United CRJ-700 operated by Skywest, Get rows 17 or 18.

Airbus A319 - Economy Plus

Row 6 at the front of Economy plus - the partition wall does not go all the way to the floor. You can still put bags under the first class seats ahead of you. Plus the wall angles away from you at the bottom to give more leg room.

Boeing 757 - Economy Plus

Other people have recommended Row 9 because of the good leg-room, but I can tell you, as an airline crewmember, we get most temperature complaints from occupants of Row 9, which is next to the leaky entry door and is therefore about 10 degrees cooler than the rest of the cabin. If you sit in Row 9, bring an extra layer of clothing you can put on.

Boeing 777-200 - Economy Plus

Row 17 is at the front of economy plus. The middle 5 seats have around 50 inches seat pitch - you have to get up to get your magazine! whilst the window seats have around 38". Row 30 is at the front of economy has around 50" seat pitch as its right behind a Type A door, however, these window seats have no windows. All these seats have arm mounted trays however.

Boeing 737 - Economy Class

If you want a window seat, do not sit in Row 6. This row on either side of the plane does not have windows.

Boeing 747-400 - Economy Class

46B,46C or 46H,46I are exit aisle seating with plenty of legroom. The seat next to the door does not have good leg space due to the bulky door. 59C or 60C and 59H, 60H are nice as usually you get two seats to yourself or at least only one passenger adjacent to you. Ear plugs are a must for sleeping.

Boeing 747-400 Business Class

Upper Deck Row 15. The best - lots of extra legroom and storage space because of the emergency exit. Seats : Main Deck Row 25 Seats C,D,F are best - lots of extra legroom due to the bulkhead. Note all bulkhead seats are NOT equal and Row 6 is poor. Boeing 777 Seats : Row 8 - forward C cabin has only two rows - feels more private than main C cabin.

Boeing 757 - Economy Class

The best seats in coach are 8DE. The standard configuration on this plane is 3 and 3, in this Exit Row, there are only 2 seats. To the right of 8E there is a large space on the floor next to the door, which works out great for extra storage space during the flight.



United Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Boeing 777 Business Class

Forward business cabin (rows 7and 8) is much quieter and better service. Beware of 777 business seats in E column as they are in the middle and hard to get out of your seat when everybody is reclined.



United Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Boeing 757-200 : Economy Plus

If you are flying Boeing 757-200 try to get seats 9 A,B, or C - right at the entrance of the cabin and extra legroom.



United Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Economy Plus - Boeing 777

Star Alliance Silver and Gold members travelling on economy-tickets can be upgraded to Economy Plus, a separate part of the economy cabin with more legroom, occasionally they also upgrade others under certain circumstances. The two or three first rows on the right side are used for crew members, better seats there. Seat 30 A/C and 30 H/J in main economy are emergency exit seats, 4 meters legroom and better personal screens.



United Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Economy Plus - Boeing 777

On select 777 aircraft, the first 2 rows of Economy plus seats on the "right side" of the plane have leg rests and deeper recline than rest of Economy plus.



United Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Economy - International Boeing 777

The two economy front seats on the right side of one of the two international configurations of the 777 are not available for passengers. These are part of flight crew seats on this configuration. They have leg rests and greater recline. Occasionally the seats become available when a flight is overbooked. But in general, this seat is not available. On the international configuration without economy plus, flight crew area is further back and the 4 side seats are all the same. These seats are the most desirable, as they have more leg room, but they do not have the leg rests and deep recline.
