UAL Begins Flying The First Of Its Reconfigured 767-300s

New Interiors Include Flat-Bed Seats And Upgraded Entertainment

United Airlines has put its newly reconfigured Boeing 767-300 aircraft into international service its, with Monday evening's departure of flight 908 from Chicago to Amsterdam. The aircraft now features flat-bed seats in an all-new United BusinessFirst cabin, along with an upgraded inflight entertainment system throughout.

The aircraft is the first of 14 to get the new interior, offering 30 seats in United BusinessFirst, 49 in Economy Plus and 135 in Economy. In addition to flat-bed seats, United BusinessFirst offers a 15.4" touchscreen monitor delivering on-demand inflight audio/video content, electrical and USB outlets for charging electronic devices, an iPod jack enabling customers to play content from their iPod-compatible devices and a five-course meal with fine wines. United Economy Plus seats provide more legroom and more recline than Economy seats. Each Economy Plus and Economy seat features a 9" touchscreen on-demand, inflight entertainment system and all Economy rows have access to electrical outlets. On long-haul international flights, United offers Economy Plus and Economy customers complimentary food, soft drinks, juices, tea and coffee.

"We are committed to building an unsurpassed travel experience for our customers," said Jim Compton, United's executive vice president and chief revenue officer. "The reconfigured 767-300 is just one more example of how we are redefining air travel by providing our customers more choice, greater comfort and better value."          

In addition to the interior changes, this 767-300 now includes Winglets for fuel savings.

The modifications are part of the $550 million investment in fleet-wide onboard improvements announced last year, which includes the largest fleet of aircraft with flat-bed seats among U.S. carriers. Nearly 150 United aircraft now offer flat-bed seats in premium cabins. United is retrofitting more than 30 additional aircraft, scheduled for completion by early 2013. There is also additional legroom in the "Economy Plus" cabin. More than 550 United-operated aircraft offer Economy Plus seating, as do 150 larger United Express regional jets. United plans to expand Economy Plus availability to an additional 100 aircraft this year, including United's two-cabin Boeing 777 aircraft, which are scheduled for completion this summer.

United expects to introduce satellite-based Wi-Fi later in 2012, and beginning in the fourth quarter, United plans to offer Economy customers a selection of video programming available for wireless streaming.
