Boeing 757-300 (753)
Seat map (24Domestic F seats/55E+/134E configuration)



Entertainment -- now 100% personal device entertainment (DirecTV has been removed)

WiFi (Internet access for a fee)
Power -- F & E+ , none in regular economy

1A/B has a great cutout for extra foot space, 1E/F has no cutout and may be tight for taller passengers.

New Slimline 753s



This link Interim 757-300 seat map shows a strange interim seat map that you might want to consult if the one(s) above do not match what you are seeing on United.bomb.
See the bottom of the Wiki there for warnings about seat selection.

Yes, usually overnight (Central time) before the second day prior to departure.

Correct. Usually this is less of a hassle but with the hybrid seatmap they've concocted here, flying a 753 in Y is going to be a mess.

It's "overnight" - more like 3:30am - but it's based on Chicago (or Houston ) time.

The oddest thing is if the agent and the supervisor had a clue, they could have told me about the config issue and how it works. But that didn't happen. I had to come here for the real story.

I'm self torturing myself next Friday, flying in 40C ORD-DEN, as it was the only aisle seat available. No expectation of an upgrade now that I've dropped from 1K to Gold. Frankly, I will survive just fine, but budget an extra 10 minutes to get off the airplane.

It's going to feel like 30! Hope you still have a drink ticket or two.

I couldn't bring myself to stay in 40C when R space opened up today. Not the best use of 15K miles, but after a 6 day work trip, I have a feeling I'm going to be very exhausted and will appreciate being up front on this flight.

As you mentioned in your previous post, waiting for 39 rows ahead of you to de-plane would have been a poor end to a long work trip.
