United Airlines has completed an extensive redesign of 15 Boeing 757-200s that fly between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and San Francisco and between New York JFK and Los Angeles.

The revamped p.s. aircraft now offer 28 180-degree flat-bed United BusinessFirst seats, offering up to 64 of sleeping space and more room for storage; 42 extra-legroom United Economy Plus seats; and 72 United Economy seats.

Designed to give customers an experience comparable to long-haul, international flights, Uniteds refurbished p.s. aircraft also feature:

Inflight Wi-Fi

Personal, on-demand entertainment at every seat with 15.4 monitors in United BusinessFirst and 9 monitors in United Economy offering hundreds of movies and television shows, plus other entertainment options

Power outlets and USB ports at every seat

Two additional inches of legroom in United Economy Plus compared to Economy Plus legroom on pre-renovation p.s. service

Multi-course meals in United BusinessFirst on most flights

Wine selections recommended by Doug Frost, Uniteds Master Sommelier and Master of Wine, including half bottles of premium wines for purchase in United Economy

Our investment in these aircraft and in the p.s. service will add greatly to our flyer-friendly customer experience on these coast-to-coast flights, said Jeff Foland, Uniteds executive vice president of marketing, technology and strategy. This is just one more example of the many things we are doing to provide greater onboard comfort and convenience on every United flight.
