EDIT - row 44
It's not just the (now removed) Row44 that makes it "special" - in fact, it's the opposite.

N593UA is (or at least, was) UA's "test" aircraft where they tested new features before potentially rolling them out fleet wide. Row44 was one of these tests. Leather Seats and power to all(?) seats was another.

The different numbering/layout was probably originally a test as well.

Crazy Seat map for 757 tonight

I am really concerned about my flight tonight. I am assigned 15F and according to SeatGuru this doesn't exist. This is flight 526 from LGA-IAH

http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Uni...ter09JUN11.php

but when you look at the online seatmap at United.com it does.

Something tells me this is going to be a disaster. There doesn't appear anywhere else to move to on this flight that isn't a middle.

This is the one different config. Slim slime seats. You should be fine.

Special sUA 752 (only a single aircraft N593UA) -- was a test for new seats, ac power and Row 44 wifi (no wifi any more)
Good news is AC power in E+

Per the seatmap, it has 6 rows of First and so I am assuming it is either V5 or V6.

Is there some brand new configuration not yet published on the website?
