United Airlines seat selection
United seat selection fees, united airlines seats for elite members, united airlines seat map, how to select a seat on united airlines, final thoughts on selecting united airlines seats.
When you take to the skies one of the most important things when it comes to preparing for your flight is knowing where you'll be seated on the airplane. Like most other airlines, United gives its guests assigned seating on its flights. The majority of customers can select from a variety of seats for free, but there are also options for preferred seating and even upgrades for those who are willing to pay. Here's a look at United Airlines seat selection and United Airlines seat assignment policies.
» Learn more: The best airline credit cards right now
Most United Airlines flights will have at least two cabin classes: economy and first class. Depending on where you’re going, you may also find business class and premium economy seating.
No matter your fare class, you will be able to choose a seat from the available selection, though how much you’ll pay and the associated fees will differ according to your ticket and various other factors.
How much is seat selection on United Airlines? Charges vary, but generally speaking, the longer and more in-demand your flight, the more expensive it will be for your seat selection.
Basic economy (most restrictive)
Basic economy tickets don't provide complimentary seat selection in any cabin. In exchange for cheaper tickets, you can either opt to pay for a seat assignment or wait until check-in and be randomly assigned a seat.
Families and groups who book basic economy tickets won't be seated together; though again, they can pay to ensure that they’re near each other.
You may be wondering: “How do I choose my seat on United Airlines?” Happily, those booking a regular economy class ticket will have the ability to book a seat for free, although the available options may not be desirable. In this case, customers can also choose to pay for better seats while maintaining their economy class ticket.
If you’re traveling with young children you may want to know: “Does United seat families together?” Yes, it does. If you’re booking an economy ticket or above, United’s system will automatically attempt to seat children under 15 on the same reservation together with their parents.
» Learn more: Is United Airlines good?
Preferred seating features seats with better locations than standard United economy flights. The seats are the same, but they tend to be closer to the front of the cabin. Costs for preferred seating vary depending on the flight, but these are the cheapest paid seat upgrades you can find on United flights.
Economy Plus seats are within the standard economy cabin, though they’re located just behind first class seating. They provide more legroom than regular economy seats and also offer free alcoholic beverages on premium transcontinental routes. These seats are more expensive than preferred seats.
Premium Plus is United’s premium economy offering and is available on select flights. This is better than economy class but not as good as United’s international business class, Premium Plus seats are all free for those who book this cabin.
United first and business class
Like Premium Plus, those who book either first or business class can choose any seat within the cabin for free.
» Learn more: How you’ll earn United Premier Qualifying Points on flights
Loyal members of United’s MileagePlus program receive additional benefits when booking flights, including better seats.
Silver elite members and above have complimentary access to preferred seating at booking.
Gold elite members and above can pick an Economy Plus seat for free when booking their ticket. Silver members, meanwhile, can choose from available Economy Plus seats upon check-in.
United elite members are also entitled to complimentary upgrades on select flights starting as early as 96 hours before departure.
Wondering what the seats on your flight will look like? United provides a seat map that you can find when booking your flight. Before selecting a flight, you can view the seat map by selecting “Seats” on the search result page.
This will open a live preview of the seats on your aircraft that shows you the layout of the seats as well as which seats are available to select. You’ll also see the seat map during booking, when you’re prompted to select your seats.
After booking, it’s possible to change your seats by going to "My Trips" and selecting "Manage Trips." Once on your specific flight page, you’ll be able to view your seat and select a new one if you desire.
» Learn more: Delta vs. United vs. American
You’ll automatically be prompted to select a seat when booking your ticket online. Once you’ve selected your flight, you’ll fill out your passenger information and any frequent flyer programs.
Depending on your flight, United may also offer the ability to purchase discounted bundles during checkout. These may save you money over choosing extras individually, though you’ll want to take a look at the costs.
After deciding whether to add a bundle, you’ll be taken to the seat map to choose your seat. A legend on the right will show you which seats are included and the costs of any upgrades.
Once you’ve selected a seat, complete the check-out process and pay for your ticket.
If you’ve already booked a ticket and would like to select a seat or change your existing seat, you can do so from the “Manage My Trips” tab under the “My Trips” option.
Then, you’ll select “Manage Trip” from your available trips. Here you’ll find your trip information, including the option to change your seat.
» Learn more: The pros and cons of MileagePlus
United Airlines’ seating policies can be confusing, especially when you’re booking an economy class ticket. The short of it is this: If you book at least a standard economy ticket, you’ll be able to choose a seat for free. You can also pay to have better seats, though some United elite members will receive access to these better seats for free. Basic economy customers, meanwhile, will always need to pay to select a seat.

Where's my window? How to avoid the windowless window seat on a plane

That's the situation I found myself in on a Ryanair flight to Venice last summer.
Being a savvy traveller, I usually steer well clear of the airline's "optional" charges and as I was flying solo I saw no reason to pay extra to choose my seat.
A couple of days before departure, I checked in for my flight and was automatically assigned a seat number. It was 11A, a window seat. My favourite. I looked forward to grandstand views of the Alps and the Venetian Lagoon (well, sort of, Ryanair's flights to Venice actually land in Treviso, around 20 miles inland).
Fat chance. My view for the duration of the two-hour journey consisted of a white plastic wall panel. A very nice wall panel, it was. Fire resistant. Clean and shiny. But a wall panel nonetheless. That's because 11A, on every single Ryanair plane (it only flies one model, the Boeing 737-800), has no window. Nor do 11F and 12F, on the opposite side of the aircraft. They are window seats without the fundamental feature that makes them window seats.
Absolutely breathtaking view from today's @British_Airways Tehran-London flight on a @Boeing 777. I reserved a 'window' seat with no window. pic.twitter.com/etrrZm01oz — Hayder al-Khoei (@Hayder_alKhoei) September 3, 2017

How does Ryanair get away with it? Surely some sort of refund is in order? Apparently not. A seat is a seat, appears to be the airline's philosophy. And, I would later discover, those who do pay to choose their seat are warned. "This seat has no window," says a small pop-up box when you hover over the offending chairs on the website.
Bizarrely, Ryanair even tries to make a virtue of the window's absence. Its website lists "Seven Seat Hacks You Need To Know Now", including, at number five, "When You Want to… Catch Some Zzzzzs".
"Red-eye warrior? Not a lot of people realise that seat 11A has no window, meaning it's the perfect seat if you're planning to catch up on some zzzs during a morning flight," reckons Ryanair. "This seat is also a little life-saver late at night when you've spent the day travelling and all you want is a few minutes of shut-eye."
Other "hacks" include paying for an extra legroom seat if you want extra legroom. Brilliant.
I'm not the first to be shocked by the secret concealed in row 11. There's even a hashtag, #wheresmywindow .
@Ryanair I paid extra for a window seat, thought I'd treat myself. Nice little trip away, spoil yourself to a window seat I thought........🤔 #iwantarefund #wheresmywindow pic.twitter.com/d17pFxi69p — RAA (@Ray_G_Anderson) December 10, 2018
And Twitter is flooded with tales. Some fliers are outraged, others are philosophical. But none can expect any compensation for their suffering. In fact, legally speaking, there is nothing compelling airlines to pay up when things go wrong on board – whether that means a busted monitor, a broken seat, a shortage of food or an overflowing toilet.
The window quirk is a result of cabin layouts and differs from aircraft to aircraft and airline to airline.
We asked the world's two largest aircraft manufacturers, Airbus and Boeing, to ask if they had any control over whether all the window seats actually had windows.
Airbus said it's down to the airlines as they "are the ones with seating maps for their specific cabin products", while Boeing added that each carrier kits out their own planes and that is where "the decision on interior layout… are made".
So which are the seats to avoid with other carriers?
Norwegian's 737s have the same issue (avoid seats 10A, 11A and 11F), as does American Airlines' (steer clear of 12A and 12F).
But if you fly with easyJet, the windowless perches are at the back, rather than in the middle. Seat 31A, to be precise, for those on its A320 aircraft, and seat 26A and 26F on its A319s.
It isn't just budget carriers affected. BA's A380s have a clutch of window seats with restricted or non-existent views: 70A and 70K, in economy, as well as 12A, 12K, 50A and 50K in Club World. Yes, even premium passengers aren't immune.
The best advice is to consult the website SeatGuru before you buy – and watch out for warnings during the booking process. Unless you like staring at plastic wall panels.

Boeing 757 200 United Seat Map
United 757 overview.
The Boeing United 757-200 is a medium-range, twin-engine jet aircraft that can carry up to 200 passengers. The aircraft has a range of approximately 3,900 nautical miles and a cruising speed of 530 mph. Its wingspan is 124 feet 10 inches, with the body reaching 155 feet 3 inches.
There are a variety of amenities for passengers on the Boeing 757-200. In Economy Class, they can enjoy complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic beverages become available for purchase on flights longer than two hours.
The United Airlines 757 Economy Plus is a Premium Economy Cabin, offering extra legroom and amenities such as a personal power outlet and an adjustable headrest. Passengers here also receive complimentary snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and complimentary beer and wine on flights longer than two hours.
The United 757 200 First Class offers a more luxurious experience, with seats that recline to a flat bed. Passengers in Business Class also receive a pre-departure beverage, a choice of entrées from the onboard menu, and beer, wine, and spirits. In addition, United 757-200 First Class passengers also have access to United’s airport lounges, where they can enjoy complimentary food and beverages before their flight.
Boeing 757 United (757 200): Layout 1
There are four rows in the United Boeing 757-200 First Class Polaris, with four seats in each row. Each row has a fully flat bed that reclines 180 degrees.
The Polaris seating areas for United 757 First Class are intended to provide passengers with a luxurious and comfortable experience, allowing them to unwind and enjoy their flight. However, due to their proximity to the galleys, passengers in seats 1A and 1B may experience some inconvenience.
It is essential to remember that the galleys are an essential component of the aircraft and are necessary for serving passengers meals and beverages. Therefore, the crew makes every effort to minimize any disturbances during meal service, even though passengers in seats 1A and 1B may experience some inconvenience.
The Boeing 757-200 United has 169 seats, 45 of which are in Economy Plus class. Due to the presence of entertainment equipment, passengers seated in seats C and D in Economy Plus and Economy may have limited legroom and under-seat storage space.
Passengers in seat 7ABC should know they cannot access floor storage during takeoff and landing. These seats are frequently crowded with other passengers using the restrooms, making them uncomfortable for those seated in them. Due to the bulkhead cutout, seats 8DEF are considered good because they have more legroom. Nevertheless, there is no floor storage in these seats during takeoff and landing.
Seats 11A and 11F, on the other hand, lack windows. They also cannot recline because the exit row is behind the seats in the 8th row. In the meantime, seats in the 20th row are wedged between two exit rows, giving passengers more legroom but preventing them from reclining.
Because it is next to an exit row, seat 21A is the best option for people who need more legroom. It should be noted that this seat does not have an overhead compartment, and that due to the built-in window armrests in the exit door, passengers may feel chilly throughout the flight. Despite the absence of overhead storage space, the other seats in the 21st row are still excellent since they provide more legroom.
The United Boeing 757-200 Economy Class has 108 seats in a 3-3 configuration. Each seat is standard and comfortable enough for a short or medium-length flight.
Passengers in rows 38CD and 39CD should know that their proximity to the restrooms can be distracting due to foot traffic and noise. If you want the best seats in Economy, steer clear of row 40 because these seats don’t recline much. Additionally, being close to the restrooms and galleys on longer flights can be noisy and disruptive.
Boeing 757-200 United: Layout 2
The United 757-200 Business Class has four rows in the first section, with seats 1A and 1B closest to the galley. Even though this location makes it easier to get to the galley, the light and noise make it hard for passengers to sleep. In addition, the proximity of the restroom may be an issue for passengers in seat 4E.
The United 757 200 Business Class second section has three rows and four seats per row. Most of the seats are comfortable, but the galley may cause some disturbance to passengers seated in 5A and 5B.
In the same breath, the misaligned windows in 6A, 6F, and 7A may not be the best option for passengers who enjoy looking out the window during the flight.
The seat arrangement for Boeing 757 200 United Airlines Economy Plus passengers is strategically placed behind the exit row. There are seven rows in this plane section, each with six standard-sized and designed seats. The Economy Plus offers additional legroom and priority boarding to passengers.
The Business First class is followed by the first row of the Economy Plus, which is the 20th row. However, due to the bulkhead’s location, passengers should know that this row’s seats have limited legroom. In addition, the exit row behind them prevents them from reclining. Consider selecting the seats in the 21st row of the Economy Plus class on the seating map if you want the best view. Due to the proximity of the front exit row, these seats have more legroom. However, it is essential to note that all Economy Plus seats have slightly less cushioning than the other premium aircraft seats. However, this minor tradeoff is worth it for those who value more space and a better view of the skies during their flight.
If you’re flying in Economy class, your plane seat will be in the last 11 rows of the aircraft. This plane section has 66 seats for passengers during their journey. While there are several seats to choose from in the United 757 seat map, it’s essential to keep a few things in mind when selecting your seat.
One of the main things to consider is the proximity of the restrooms. For example, if you choose to sit in seats 37C and 37D or any seat in row 38, you may experience discomfort due to the proximity of the restrooms. This is because passengers frequently walk by your seat to use the restroom, which may be disruptive during the flight.
The seats in row 38 do not have any overhead bins, so you will need to find another place to store your carry-on items during the flight. It may be inconvenient for some passengers, as finding space for your belongings on a busy flight can be challenging.
757 200 United: Layout 3
The Polaris cabin has six rows of reclining seats arranged in a 2-2 configuration and is at the front of the United Boeing 757 200 aircraft. With plenty of legroom and headrests that can be adjusted, each seat is made to be as comfortable as possible.
Although all the seats in this cabin are standard, those in the first row have a slight drawback. Since they are near to the bulkhead, they offer restricted legroom for passengers. However, the advantages of flying in the Polaris United 757 Business Class cabin include priority boarding, gourmet meals, and access to exclusive lounges, which make up for this minor drawback.
The Boeing 757-200 United seat plan features Economy Plus class seats in a 3-3 configuration behind the emergency exit. However, only two seats are in the seventh row, and three are in the other rows. In addition, due to their proximity to the galley and restroom, seats 7D and 7E offer less reclining, and seat 7E will not have access to a window.
The fact that other passengers frequently flock to this area to use the restrooms causes additional noise, which is one of the drawbacks of the seats in row 8 containing seats 8A, 8B, and 8C.
Due to the protrusion of the exit door, which reduces legroom, passengers in seat 8F may experience discomfort. In addition, the armrest houses the tray table, which narrows the seat. And because they do not have windows and are in front of the row for the exit, seats 11A, 11F, 12A, and 12F.
The exit row, behind the seats in the 20th row, may limit or eliminate recline. On the other hand, the seats in row 21 are the best choice for passengers looking for the most comfortable seats. The extra legroom passengers get by choosing them makes their journey more comfortable.
The configuration of the United 757 200 ensures passengers have a comfortable flight. In 18 rows, the Economy Class cabin is designed to hold up to 108 passengers.
However, the entertainment equipment stored in this area may limit the under-seat storage space and legroom of passengers seated in Economy Class seats C, D, and E. Some travelers may not find this a problem, but those needing more room for their legs or storing their belongings may consider switching seats.
It is essential to remember that the restrooms’ proximity at the distal part of the United Airlines 757 200 may cause passengers in rows 38CD, 39CD, and the final row, row 40, to experience some discomfort.

If you really want to know where to sit, you want to know if the air conditioning’s too cold, the seat doesn’t recline or if you’ll never get a good night’s sleep because of the light in the galley. So check out our user guide to the best and worst seats on United Airlines.
Flying United Airlines on a domestic or short international flight? You may find yourself on one of the airline’s narrow-body planes. Which is the best of those seats? It depends on what kind of flier you are. So, I decided to dive into FlyerTalk forums and SeatGuru reviews for a guide to where to sit on your next flight.

Boeing 737, United Airlines
The Boeings 737s
Each of the 737 series aircraft has multiple seat layouts, three for -700s, four for -800s, three for -900s, and only one for the -900 MAX. Based on flyer opinions, these aircraft have a good selection of seats, especially behind the bulkhead, if you’re looking for extra legroom. However, there were a lot of complaints about regular economy’s seat pitch.
United Airlines Boeing 737-700 (version 1) Seat Map
The Best Seats: Row 7
- Any seat in row 7. It’s behind the bulkhead so there’s plenty of legroom and they don’t always charge more
The Best Seats: The Exit Rows
- Row 20 on version 1 of this aircraft is great when you’re flying with a companion because it’s a two-seater. However, these seats are in an exit row so you may be charged more to choose these seats. Also, keep in mind that there is limited recline in exit row seats.
- Row 21 is also an exit row. It has less legroom than row 20, but the seats recline. Many FlyerTalkers did prefer row 21 over row 20 due to the recline.
The Best Seats: United First®
- Seats 1A and 1B are the best because there’s no one reclining into you. There is also a cutout in the bulkhead wall, offering plenty of legroom for passengers.
The Worst Seats: Economy
- Row 10 in Economy Plus , and row 11 in some versions of this aircraft does not have a window.
The Worst Seats: United First®
- Seats 1E and 1F don’t have extra legroom.

United Airlines Boeing_737-800 Seats
Best Seats: The Gamble
- Row 7 in Economy Plus can be good or bad depending on the aircraft layout. On the most common version of this plane, row 7 is one of the best seats in Economy Plus because of the extra legroom under the bulkhead. However, on other versions of this plane, the bulkhead extends to the floor, so the legroom is restricted.
Best Seats: Extra Legroom
- Rows 20 and 21 in Economy Plus both have extra legroom. However, the seats in row 20 don’t recline.
Best Seats: United Business Class
- 1B is the preferred F class seat over 1A, 1E, and 1F because there’s a cutout in the bulkhead in front of it which gives you extra legroom. If you can’t nab 1B, try for 1A, 1E, and 1F. These seats have less legroom but there’s still enough.
Worst Seats: Economy Plus
- Row 15 is in front of the first exit row, so it does not recline. Flyers have also reported a misaligned window and minimal shoulder space in the window seats.
- Rows 11 and 12 are missing a window.
Worst Seats: United Business Class
- Row 4 in business class has minimal recline due to the bulkhead behind it. However, some flyers reported that the recline was still comfortable.
Note: There are two versions of the 737-700. View them here .

United Airlines 737-900v1 Seats
The best seats: extra legroom.
- All versions of this aircraft have extra legroom in row 7 as the bulkhead does not extend to the floor. However, 7A, 7B, and 7C have been replaced by a lavatory, so the proximity may not be desirable.
The Exit Row
- Like the 737-800, rows 15 and 20 do not recline, and exit rows 20 and 21 have extra legroom. Row 21 window seats reportedly have a short armrest attached to the exit door, so it may be uncomfortable.
The Worst Seats: Economy Plus
- This aircraft has an extra row of premium cabin seats, row 5. Flyers have reported that these seats do not recline and are next to the lavatories, making them unfavorable.
- Seats 11A, 12A, and 12F do not have windows.
Note: There are three versions of the 737-900 currently in service. View them here .

Boeing 757, United Airlines
The Boeings 757s
The 757 series aircraft have only a few seat layouts, two for the 757-200s, and only one for the 757-300. Consistent with the 737 series, bulkhead and exit row seats are the best for legroom, while regular economy should be avoided due to minimal pitch. Premium cabins on these aircraft feature lay-flat beds and received mixed reviews. It does not seem you could go wrong with any choice; however, aisle seats and row 1 may experience more galley noise and light.
United Airlines 757-200v1
The Best Seats: Economy Plus
- 7A/7B/7C and 8D/8E/8F are behind the bulkhead, so there is plenty of legroom. Reviewers report these are the best economy seats on the aircraft.
- Row 11 does not have a window.
- Rows 12 and 20 have limited to no recline, which may be uncomfortable for an overnight or long-haul flight.
- Seat 21A’s armrest is attached to the exit door and some flyers say that the location is quite chilly.
The Best Seats: United Business First
- As far as premium cabins, most FlyerTalkers agreed that 1E/1F are better than 1A/1B and other rows because there’s less direct galley noise and light. However, due to the diagonal layout of the seats, it can be cramped if you’re over six feet tall.
- Seat 4F is also good because its away from the galley so it has extra privacy. But, it’s close to the bathroom.
- On version 2 of this aircraft, there are seven rows of business class. Reviewers suggest rows 1 and 5 due to the bulkhead adding extra legroom.
Note: There are two versions of the 757-200 currently in service. View them here .
Have more questions about this plane’s seats? Ask them in the FlyerTalk forum thread, Where to Sit on a United 757-200?
United Airlines 757-300
- Seats 8A/8B/8C/8F have extra legroom due to the exit seats in front. 8D and 8E have regular economy plus legroom due to row 7 seats in front.
- Row 21 is an exit row seat, but it has limited to no recline.
The Worst Seats: Economy
- Row 20 has limited to no recline.
- Row 17 is missing a window.
The Best Seats: Economy
- Row 22 has prime seats due it being a two-seat configuration and having extra legroom.
- Row 7 is also a two-seat configuration and may be favorable for couples. But, it is next to the bathroom.
- Seats 1A/1B are by a large cutout in the bulkhead for a lot of extra legroom.

United Airlines Airbus A319
The Airbus Planes
The Airbus A319 and A320 only have one configuration per aircraft. They have less premium cabin seats available than other planes in the fleet and the reviews were mixed for all seat options. Economy Plus received good reviews, especially row 7 behind the bulkhead, while regular economy received complaints of cramping and little legroom.
United Airlines A319
- Row 7 is the bulkhead seat and has extra legroom.
- Row 21 reclines and has extra legroom, ideal for taller travelers.
- Economy Plus has more than enough legroom and has comfortable seats. Many flyers reported that these seats on the A320 seemed wider than the 737 series aircraft and were the best Economy Plus seats on United mainline narrow-bodies.
- Row 20 has extra legroom but does not recline.
The Worst Seats: United First
- The premium cabin on the A320 was reported to have great legroom and recline on all seats, while the first row of the A319 has restricted legroom due to the bulkhead. Flyers complained of inadequate padding in A319 seats that made them uncomfortable on longer flights.
Note: There are two versions of the A319. View them here . There are two versions of the A320. View them here .

Reviews are pretty consistent on both FlyerTalk and SeatGuru. Here are some additional general points made that I want to highlight:
- Flyers have reported reduced legroom in regular economy seats, so it may be beneficial to grab Economy Plus if you can.
- For all narrow-body aircraft, the last row has limited to no recline and is next to the aft lavatories, so it would be wise to avoid these seats.
- Bulkhead seats may have reduced width due to stationary armrests and may lack floor storage. Furthermore, on aircraft equipped with inflight entertainment, it does not always sit directly in front of the seat.
If you’re looking for the best economy seat on mainline United narrow body jets, based on the comments from FlyerTalkers and SeatGuru reviewers, I suggest the bulkhead seat and the last exit row seats. Both rows will give you the legroom and recline you desire (as long as the bulkhead does not extend to the floor, which in most cases, it does not). If you do not mind zero recline, then exit row 21’s legroom will be very roomy. I also suggest grabbing Economy Plus on any United flight, especially if you are tall. I am only 5’3”, so regular economy does not bother me, but I know that taller travelers can feel very cramped in 30′ to 31′ pitch seats. Additionally, row 22 and row 7 (two-seater rows) on the 757-300 seem incredibly comfortable.
If you’re a Premium Cabin flyer, then I do not think you can go wrong with most of the seat options; however, be aware of row 5 in the 737-900 as it reportedly does not recline. The A319 and A320 premium cabin seats seemed to receive the most complaints about comfort and worth, so you may be better off grabbing row 7 in economy plus for short flights. For 757 aircraft, row 1 near the galley, aisle seats, and rows near the lavatory received the most complaints due to noise, lights, and odor, so I would personally go with a window seat in row 2 or 3, but to each their own.
Because some aircraft have multiple seat layouts, it is important to check SeatGuru before your flight to see which aircraft version you will be flying on. Although, many FlyerTalkers have complained about SeatGuru’s reliability, so check out the full FlyerTalk wiki forum for favored United seats here .

How Do I Know Which Plane I’ll Be On?
The easiest way to find out what plane model you’ll be flying is to check United Airlines’ website. Simply click “details” on the flight you wish to reserve and the menu will show you–on the left-hand side, next to the United logo–what plane model you’re flying, along with information about the snack, wifi, and outlet situation on board. In the example below, this flight will be on a Boeing 737-900.
Click “Details” on your reservation to see what plane model you’re flying. In this example, It’s a Boeing 737-900
A small (and common) typo in the very beginning of the Airbus section: "They have less premium cabin seats available than other planes in the fleet and the reviews were mixed for all seat options" - they do not have "less premium cabin seats", they have fewer. When referring to an object with a specific number, use fewer.
Meg Butler thanks will try there.
I’m really surprised to read any recommendations for Row 1 on United narrow bodies other than 737-700. Legroom is more restricted than other rows almost across the board, you have no storage in front of you and depending on the aircraft you may have to use an overhead bin that’s behind you. There’s a reason that row 1 is generally booked last.
Interested in opinions on 777-200 Row 51 seats A,B or K,L please. Is there a window? Noise level. Is overhead bin storage right above the seats or down the aisle a bit? Thanks
If someone doesn't answer your question in the comments, try finding that model on this page and ask the question there. You may get a faster response. https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/united-airlines-mileageplus/1535765-consolidated-where-sit-united-plane-threads.html
There is no such plane as the "737-900 MAX". There is the 737-900 (both regular and 737-900ER), and the (grounded) 737 MAX 7, MAX8, 737 MAX9 and 737 MAX10.

How to Read an Aircraft Seat Map
If you've checked in online for a flight or selected your seat in advance, you may have been presented with a visual seat map — either allowing you to choose which available seat you would like or showing you where on the plane you will be sitting.
Some seat maps are very easy to read because all seats are either the same or very similar. While others are much more complicated because there is a huge difference between the different seats in the cabin.
You may already know this, but before we get into the complex seat maps, here are some basics:
- Seat maps are always forward facing, so the top of the map is the front of the plane or cabin and the bottom is the rear of the plane or cabin.
- Seat maps are not usually to scale — a huge aisle or galley area on a map is unlikely to be how the plane is actually configured. Airlines use every inch of available space to maximize revenue.
- Each seat is usually represented by a single square — three square together (i.e. in economy) usually means three seats next to each other.
- Gaps running vertically through the entire seat map usually represent an aisle.
- Even if the seat map only shows the seats as squares facing forward, the seat could be facing forward, angled toward the aisle or window or even facing backward.
- Gaps between rows horizontally will usually represent either an exit row or bulkhead (cabin wall at the front of a cabin).
- A shaded 'flap' on either side of the seat map indicate where the wings are. You may not have a great view out the window if you sit over the wing — unless you like watching the wing.
- A knife and fork symbol means a galley area where crew store and prepare food and drinks, and the bathroom (male and female) symbol means lavatories. Many passengers avoid selecting seats near a bathroom because of the potential noise and smells, and on busy flights, passengers tend to congregate near bathrooms while they wait.
- A symbol of a stroller means this is a child-friendly row. Families with babies are usually seated here. If you want a quiet flight, you should avoid these rows.
- A gap between the seat and the wall and shown in rows 51-53 in the seat map below means that the shape of the aircraft curves narrower at the rear, so it's not wide enough to fit three seats in that space. These seats can be great for traveling with someone else, though there may be a gap between the window seat and the window, which could mean extra storage space but difficulty sleeping for leaning against the window because of the gap.
- Seat maps will have a legend showing what different colors and symbols on seats mean. Available seats will be one color, with those already selected by other passengers or otherwise unavailable to select in advance a different color. If there is an X on the seat you want to select, this may mean it cannot be reserved in advance and if there is a $ sign on the seat, it means you will need to pay extra to select this seat.
Different economy and premium economy seats within the same cabin are usually all quite similar, regardless of airline. They will usually be in some sort of 3-3, 2-4-2, 3-3-3 or 3-4-3 layout. By all means, look for exit rows as explained above, but otherwise, most seats will be the same.
In business and first class cabins, there can be a huge difference in both cabin layouts and best seats between different airlines. This is because there is a bigger difference in business and first class products between airlines than in economy and premium economy seats.
For a four-across 'straight' 1-2-1 seat map where the middle seats all look the same between rows, it means all seats will have direct aisle access. They will either face directly forward and may angle slightly toward the window or aisle in a herringbone layout.
You may wish to avoid either the front or back few rows if they are close to a galley or bathroom — a seat or seats midway back should be a nice balance.
Another popular layout in business class is a staggered 1-2-1 layout. Rather than each seat directly behind the seat in front of it (like the seat map above), this layout will have your feet in lie-flat mode next to the person in front of you, rather than behind.
This means each 'window' seat will be a choice between a seat right next to the window or a seat near the window, but next to the aisle. The 'true' window seats right next to the window (the A and K seats in the map above) tend to be more private. For the center seats, you will see that the rows alternate between rows with two seats very close together and rows with seats far apart. These are often known as 'honeymoon' seats and 'divorce' seats. If you are traveling with a loved one, you may wish to select the pair very close together, while if you are traveling with a colleague or someone you don't want to be super close to, select the divorce seats to provide more space between you.
Some airlines have a staggered 1-2-1 business class cabin that does space all center seats the same. For a cabin like the one below, there's no center pairs that are closer or farther away — and therefore not really better or worse.
You may also see a large forward/front business class cabin followed by a galley or bathrooms and then a smaller cabin at the rear. The rear business class cabins tend to be smaller and, therefore, quieter and more exclusive feeling. The downside of this can be that meals take longer to serve if crew start serving from the front, so your meal choice may have run out by the time crew get to the rear cabin.
Some airlines will have seat maps detailed enough to show which way the seats actually face. For example, here is a 2-2-2 business class cabin with pairs of seats facing in slightly different directions.
First class cabins on the one airline tend to have seats that are very similar in a very small cabin, so unless you are traveling with someone else or especially want a window seat, it's not as important to select the perfect seat in advance.
In addition to checking the seat map on an airline's website, it's useful to check out resources like SeatGuru , which allow you scroll through an airline's fleet for the best and worst seats.

United’s fare types are pretty standard for a large U.S. carrier. But with stiff competition from lots of low-cost airlines, United recently introduced a Basic Economy fare — which pretty much just gets you a seat on the plane.
Handy for those traveling light, this reduced and restricted fare does not include any standard carry-on or checked luggage.
And for anyone part of United’s frequent flyer program (covered later on in this article), you won’t be eligible for premier qualifying miles that go toward your elite status when flying in this class.
Below are the additional differences in fare types and cabin classes, with inflight amenities covered later on in this article:
Basic Economy (most restrictive fare):
- Pre-assigned seat before boarding
- Family or group seating not possible
- First checked bag costs an additional $120 (round-trip)
- Upgrades not available
- Changes or refunds not permitted
- Seat selection at time of booking (if available)
- Customize your booking with other options
- Refundable ticket (subject to cancellation fees)
- Spacious, larger seating with extra legroom
- Complimentary food and beverage
- Enhanced dining with complimentary food and beverage
The availability of certain cabin classes is dependent on the route and plane type. We’ve also covered how you can upgrade to business or first class on United Airlines .
If you’re looking for a little extra legroom, you can upgrade your booking to Economy Plus. This will also seat you closer to the front of the aircraft so you can disembark quicker.
You can upgrade as a one-off, or subscribe to yearly upgrades when booking a regular economy ticket (where Economy Plus is available).
MileagePlus is United’s frequent flyer loyalty program where you can earn miles to redeem against reward flights and work your way up membership tiers to gain elite benefits, such as priority check-in and additional luggage.
These reward miles can also be used against flights with other Star Alliance members. You can earn miles through flying, shopping, dining out, and spending on certain credit cards.

United Customer Satisfaction
Customer satisfaction is a real mixed bag with United Airlines. Their social media channels and Tripadvisor reviews seem to attract many compliments from loyal customers, which is unusual as these outlets are often utilized to rant and rave about poor service!
Additionally, their PR team is pretty genius, sponsoring a number of great causes and shouting about their good deeds on social media — so even if the service was only mediocre for a customer, their philanthropic ways may improve consumer brand impression.
Lost baggage is a real gripe for United customers, being one of the most prominent issues on review sites. Also, inconsistencies of aircraft age can lead to disappointment in inflight amenities.
One customer complaint we found said they had experienced a seat-back entertainment system on once international flight and not on another. That’s going to disappoint any traveler.
United prides itself on their personal device entertainment, but this does rely on the customer having a smartphone/tablet at their disposal.
United Airlines had 1,169 complaints lodged against them from January-September 2018 according to the September 2018 Air Travel Consumer Report . The chart below represents the complaints by category.
- Flight problems (cancellation, delay, or misconnection): 292
- Baggage: 185
- Customer service: 174
- Reservation, ticketing, boarding: 110
- Disability : 86
- Refunds: 45
- Oversales: 34
- Discrimination: 8
- Advertising: 5
There are a number of different review websites out there when it comes to airline ratings. Here are a few of the most popular so you can see the general consumer opinion for United Airlines.
Skytrax Ranking: 3 Star Airline (out of 5)
Skytrax Customer Rating: 3/10 (average from 2,594 reviews)
TripAdvisor Airline Review Rating: 3/5 (average from 36,791 reviews)
Kayak Customer Rating: 7/10 (average from 61,414 reviews)
AirHelp.com Overall Rating: 7.59/10 (departure/arrival performance, service, and satisfaction of claims processing)
Airlineratings.com Safety Rating : 7/7 (takes into consideration whether the airline has an IATA Operational Safety Audit Certification, government and crash records, plus information from the World’s Aviation Governing Body).
United Airlines supports numerous charities across their main hub locations and across the globe. It strives to be a more sustainable airline supporting environmental charities and operations such as Clean the World and Conservation International.
United also supports many youth projects, including Youth Guidance with the goal of inspiring future leaders.
Overall, customer satisfaction seems to be somewhere in the middle for United — and as with other legacy U.S. carriers, there will always be a place for the airline with reasonable fares and route availability.
United will never have the sass and style of Virgin Atlantic or the service and luxury of the Middle Eastern airlines, but it serves its purpose and does have a loyal customer base (although this may be dwindling slightly, with many referencing the “good old days” when United was great).
Their current focus seems to be on revamping their premium cabins, with their Polaris offering in business and first — but we’re hoping they don’t neglect economy for too much longer either.

The captain (William Timmons) was excellent in our emergency situation, he even push the cart for my disabled mother in order to get us to our connection flight, besides making sure the connection flight waited for us. It is refreshing in this day that people get out of their roles and help others that are in need. Big thank you to the crew and the captain for their help
Hi Dimitrios, great to hear about your positive experience with United! Thanks for sharing with the readers at UpgradedPoints.com.
Just got our tickets and checked a bag, it cost me $100 for being one pound over their weight limit which is 50 pounds with United. I used Delta on the way there and their charge was $30, which they waived since I was retired military. I flew United going back since all the Delta flights were booked. Thanks for nothing, United.
By far the worst travel experience I have ever had. I have flown with United before and everything went fine but that’s because all my flights were on time and I didn’t have to deal with customer service. Yesterday 7/16/19 I was flying from SAN to OKC with a layover in DEN. Due to my flight leaving SAN late and then our plane having to “do S shapes in the sky to let other planes land ahead of us” I missed my connecting flight. I get it, things happen but the way United handled it was absolutely ridiculous. They canceled the second leg of my flight and refunded me $178 (I paid $450 for my flight including bags) without my consent. Then I was told since they did that the history of my ticket was out of their system so the ONLY way for me to be able to fly out of Denver was to buy another ticket. That would have been fine if there were tickets that would get me to OKC for $178 the same amount they refunded me for but of course there wasn’t, they wanted me to pay $620 for a ticket not including bags which I had two that needed checked. After standing in line for an hour and then arguing with them for TWO HOURS telling them that the logic literally makes no sense at all, they booked me a flight to leave today for $318. Still had to pay for it which I will be fighting it once I get to OKC. After being at customer service for 3 hours everything was closed, they did not offer a food voucher or even simply a bottle of water. I had to sleep on the floor of the DEN airport. On top of that only one out of the three employees that “helped” me was actually helpful (the fact that it took two hours for her to do anything aside). Other employees were useless and completely rude- threw his hands up and walked away in the middle of my sentence because I was questioning how their logic makes any sense at all. Needless to say I WILL NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE AGAIN. If I could give them no stars I would.
Hi Meagan, sorry to hear about your disappointing experience with United. Thanks for sharing with our readers.
I am scheduled to fly with you in a few months. I hope my fight goes smoothly. If it doesnt it seems as you dont even care your response is very insensitive.
We are not United Airlines. We are Upgraded Points, a website that publishes helpful information and guides for travelers. If you’re looking to contact United you’ll want to do so on the United website .
I truly want to thank the United crew of UA459 of Friday Aug 2nd 2019, for finding my left behind carry-on luggage. And most of all the wonderful ladies at LAX United – Baggage Claim center for most efficiently finding my bag which had a lot of valuables both in memories and value within 24 hrs, with very little information to go on. Mostly I am grateful for the courteous service that was provided. Thank you so much once again.
It’s great to hear of your positive experience with United – thanks for sharing with readers. We want to make you aware that we are not affiliated with United Airlines in any way, so you may want to send your feedback directly to the airline.
After 28 hours of flying you decided to take me off already delayed flight. I’m tired af, my relatives are waiting #onlyinamerica
Sorry to hear of your issues but please be aware that we are not United Airlines, we are UpgradedPoints.com. We advise you forward your feedback to the airline directly.
I’m booked to arrive on flight 4299 around 2:30 pm on Wednesday, December 18th. How do I get to 38 Carson Road, Budget auto rental?
Hi Lillian. Please understand that we are not United Airlines, we are Upgraded Points, a blog specializing in credit card and travel resources. You can use rome2rio.com to find options for reaching your destination.
I’ve purchased a ticket a few months ago and in the meantime, my girlfriend’s husband got relocated to Japan and they have to leave. So now I have no place to stay. I bought a ticket with insurance in case an emergency came up but I still have not had it posted to my account. That’s what insurance is for and I paid 40 extra dollars for it. Please get back to me as I would like to know how to get my money back. I have gone through your whole system and still, it has not been refunded.
Hi Sheri. Sorry for your experience. Please be advised, however, that we are not United Airlines. We are Upgraded Points, a blog specializing in credit card rewards and travel resources. You should contact United to have them help you resolve this issue. 1-800-864-8331
On two last bookings with United, we have had been charged under Taxes and Fees a Senior(65+) fee of 87.01/person. I cannot find this explained on any United site. What is this, it’s additive not a discount.
Basic Economy turns out to be a money grab. Carryons have to be checked…at a cost. Pay for luggage, pay to be seated together, pay extra for the basics. Our tickets were purchased way in advance. Our initial flight out of Denver was delayed so long that we barely made it to our connector…thus an entire travel day with no food. Even though we booked early, the two of us, both 75 years old, were not seated together. Really? Would you not assume that a couple needs to be together? Will use other airlines for our upcoming trip.

We compared Economy and Economy Plus on 6 different airlines — here's the difference
Is it worth the extra cash suhyeon choi/unsplash the insider summary:.
- We looked at the differences between Economy and Economy Plus on six major airlines.
- JetBlue has the most legroom in their Economy class (34 inches).
- Spirit Airlines Economy class offers the least amount of legroom (28 inches), but their Big Front seats offer a massive upgrade, to 36 inches.
- Delta's Comfort+ class offers the most perks.
Turbulence, a screaming baby, or sitting next to an armrest-hogger is generally out of your control.
Choosing how much legroom you get, however, is in your hands — though that's not to say it doesn't come at an extra cost.
As more and more airlines offer seating that isn't quite Business class, but is better than Economy, we decided to compare this new class to Economy.
We looked to SeatGuru for the seating measurements on Boeing 737s or the equivalent Airbus A320s on six popular airlines; Delta, United, American, Jetblue, Wow Air, and Spirit.
Keep scrolling to see which Premium Economy classes are truly worth the extra cash (keeping in mind that prices vary by route) — and where you're better off just sticking to regular Economy.
Seats in United's Economy class have a width of 17.3 inches, and 31 inches of legroom.
United Economy Plus:
Economy Plus seating on United has a width of 17.3 inches as well, but 37 inches of legroom. In other words, paying up means getting the same seat, but with 6 extra inches of legroom. Another perk is that E conomy Plus seating also offers more of a recline (5 inches versus 3 — to put that into perspective, First Class has 7.5).
America Airlines Economy:
American's Economy class seats get you 31 inches of legroom and has seats that are 17.2 inches wide.
American Airlines Main Cabin Extra:
American's Main Cabin Extra seats get you 35 to 37 inches of legroom along with Preferred Boarding, and an earlier exit when you land.
JetBlue has the most legroom in their Economy class, with 34 inches of space. The seats are also the widest, with a width of 17.8 inches.
JetBlue Even More Space:
JetBlue's Even More Space seats offer 38 to 39 inches of legroom. Travelers also get early boarding and Even More Speed (expedited security), which is available in select cities.
Delta's Economy class offers 31 to 32 inches of legroom and seats that are 17.2 inches wide.
Delta's Comfort+ class offers the same seat width, but 34 inches of legroom. Travelers also get the perks of having a dedicated overhead bin, complimentary alcoholic drinks, free movies on seatback video screens, priority boarding, and an increased incline on international flights.
WOW Air Economy:
Wow Air's Economy class comes with 30 to 31 inches of legroom and seats that are 17 inches wide.
WOW Air XL Seats:
Travelers get 32 to 33 inches of legroom on XL seats , 35+ inches of legroom on XXL seats, and 37+ inches on BigSeats. Travelers will also get priority boarding, free carry-on baggage, free checked baggage, and in-flight meals.
Spirit Airlines Economy:
Spirit's Economy class has the least amount of legroom, with only 28 inches. The seats have a width of 17.75 inches, however, which is on the wider side.
Spirit Airlines Big Front:
Spirit's Big Front seats are a huge difference to their Economy class, with 36 inches of legroom and 18.5 inches of width.

Crime and public safety | meta plans thousands more layoffs as soon as this week, crime and public safety | man tried to stab united flight attendant, open plane’s exit door on plane from california.
A man has been arrested by the feds after he allegedly tried to stab a United Airlines flight attendant in the neck and tried to open the plane’s emergency exit door while aboard a flight to Boston Logan International Airport.
Francisco Severo Torres, 33, of Leominster, has been charged by the FBI with one count of interference and attempted interference with flight crew members and attendants using a dangerous weapon.
Torres was arrested Sunday evening at Boston Logan International Airport following the flight from Los Angeles.
About 45 minutes before the flight arrived in Boston, the United flight crew received an alarm in the cockpit that a starboard side door was disarmed.
A flight attendant found that the door’s locking handle had been moved out of the fully locked position — about a quarter of the way toward the unlocked position — and that the emergency slide arming lever had been moved to the “disarmed” position. The flight attendant reported this to the captain and flight crew after securing the door and emergency slide.
Then, another flight attendant reported that he had seen Torres near the door, and believed Torres had tampered with the door. When a flight attendant confronted Torres about tampering with the door, he responded by asking if cameras showed him doing that.
According to court documents, the flight attendant then alerted the captain that they believed Torres posed a threat to the aircraft, and that the captain needed to land the aircraft as soon as possible.
Torres soon after got out of his seat and approached the starboard side door, where two flight attendants were standing in the aisle. One of the flight attendants saw Torres mouthing something that he could not hear.
Passengers tackled Torres, and he was restrained with the assistance of flight crew. Torres was taken into custody upon the flight’s arrival to Boston.
In later interviews, passengers reported that Torres had asked a fellow passenger about the safety card — and where it showed the location of the door handle during the flight attendants’ safety briefing prior to takeoff. Also, Torres was seen pacing in the galley before attacking the flight attendant.
Following an initial appearance on Monday before a U.S. District Court magistrate, Torres was detained pending a hearing set for Thursday.

It was fab!!! The food, wine, culture, architecture, the people - all wonderful. Loved that pretty much everywhere they accepted CCs, so there’s minimal need for currency. We visited 3 cities - Porto, Lisbon & Sintra. All wonderful with their own scene. Thank you for setting us up with such a great trip Gate 1!
Our unguided (no tour manager) trip to Barcelona was wonderful! My wife and I both had some trepidation before going. We had not traveled without a guided format in decades; that forced us to do our homework and plan out our days. We were able to spend more time at the sites that most interested us. We ate at hole in the wall restaurants that knocked our socks off. We went beyond our comfort level, and had an experience we wont forget. Thank you Gate 1!
My trip was fabulous! Madrid and Barcelona - beautiful and historic. Looking forward to plan my next trip. Thank you Gate1.
The trip was amazing value. Truly, we can't figure out the math to understand how you can offer such a trip for that cost. The hotel was very nice, in an excellent location and we all had a wonderful time. We will be on Gate 1 again in May and have converted our friends as well.
We had a great time. Everything went off well without any hitch and all the arrangements were very good. We liked the hotel also and it was very conveniently located right next to a metro stop and a train from there would take us to the city center in 7/8 minutes. This is an excellent package and we would definitely recommend it to our friends. This was the first time we were using GATE 1 and I must say we had a wonderful experience. Please do let us know in the future of any good deals like this.
