Go flat over the Pacific on United Airlines

20th August 2008 Print
Travel to Asia is getting more enjoyable and relaxing with United’s international, lie-flat first and business class seats, taking off to the region with a newly configured Boeing 747. The aircraft will also feature iPod connectivity, enabling customers in the front cabins to enjoy their own videos on a 15.4-inch personal television screen.

"Trans-Pacific travel just got even better for United customers, who will now have more ways to relax on long flights," says Graham Atkinson, United Airlines - executive vice president and Chief Customer Officer. "Today’s flight marks another milestone in United’s continuing commitment to invest in products and services that provide our customers with a more enjoyable travel experience."

Customers in United First and United Business on the newly reconfigured aircraft may enjoy more than 150 hours of movies and television shows on-demand; relax with fully lie-flat seats; and dine on appetizers and entrees designed by world-renowned chef Charlie Trotter on outbound U.S. flights. United's entire fleet of international, widebody aircraft are being reconfigured over the next two years and will include iPod connectivity in first and business class.

United was the first major U.S. carrier to introduce lie-flat business class seats in November 2007. More information about these seats and the International Premium Travel Experience is available at
