Everything You Want to Know About Where to Sit on 757-200 (16 lie-flat)

United has two versions of 752's with lie flat seats. This version flies internationaly trans-Atlantic flights from the east coast, especially to closer cities in Ireland/Great Britain, premium transcontinental service (p.t.s. or aka PS), some Hawaii flights and occasional hub to hub flights. There are 16 J seats, 42 E+ seats, and 118 E seats.

Slimline version

16/160 75s https://www.aerolopa.com/ua-boeing-75s

--- FIRST
Row 1 has wider footwells but 3" shorter bed length.
Seats 1E/1F may be slightly darker and quieter than 1A/1B, which are more susceptible to galley lights and noise.

--- ECONOMY

Exit row seats are Row 7, Row 20, Row 21, and Row 22. Seats 22A and 22F have "unlimited" leg room. Entertainment screen is housed in arm rest. Row 22BC and 22DE have about the same leg room as an E+ seat. These seats do recline.

Row 10A and F and 11A and F are missing a window (you get one next to the seat, but not towards the seat back of the row ahead).

As of 2023 the older 16/45/108 configuration with non slimline seats has been phased out, with all aircraft having the slimline configuration as outlined above. Below is info of the original configuration.

5/25 will be a B757-200, 6/25 will be a B767-400.

On B767-400, 28AB and 28KL have unlimited legroom.

I would say the upgaguage in this case is a good thing. B767-400 will not need technical fuel stop westbound unlike B757-200 which needs occasionally. And you still have a chance to get E+ seats with unlimited legroom.

Is the flight June 4 or June 5? Schedule currently shows the 752 on June 4, the 764 on June 5.

It's June 4. What is a 752 vs a 764. I thought I knew but guess not.

Would any one have a chance to tell me about the premium comfort seat choices? I have a tall spouse and is now crazy about the 3 across seat configuration.
Sadly, Seatguru isn't what it used to be

Many people don't like 3 across on single isle across the pond. I say meh ....

Despite what Seatguru says, I like 7A. 7C if you don't mind being bumped by passengers during boarding.

21 exit row has recline unlike exit row 20. Yes, window seat can get a little cold. No big deal for me. My second choice after row 7. (OK, third choice after business, but now that I'm Plat and no longer receive GPUs .... )

Row 8 sucks for tall people, as there's a little more legroom, but no seat in front of you, so in reality you cannot stretch your legs under a seat in front of you. I'm not that tall (compare to tall people, but tall compared to most), but have long legs, so it would be a misery for me (and I would never purchase a flight if that was the only option).

Stupid questions about my upcoming ORD-EDI on a 757. We are in 7b & c. Last tatl was in business on SAS and have never crossed on an American carrier at all. Will there be pillows in E+? (because, who doesn't love a fluffy airline pillow?) Also, what about in seat power, where are the outlets? What kind of headphone jack is required?

I really enjoy reading the forums here on FT. Wish I had a reason to travel more.

Thanks for any help.

yes -- in economy there are outlets on the support between seats near the floor. 2 outlets for each 3 seat group (75W max)

either the two prong or single prong 3.5mm

And there will be a meagre pillow and an even more meagre blanket. Beware, UA keeps its planes on the cool side generally.

sCO used to be two prong a LONG time ago. Pretty sure they are all single prong now.

My 757 flight to DUB certainly was. Seat 7A both ways, and one one of the flights they prevented my quick escape, where I'm normally out of the plane before BizFirst pax even make it to 2L

sCO aircraft today will still accept either 2 or 1 prong headsets. There may be newer 1 prong only, but 1 prong headsets work in all the 2 prong plugs.

True that, but you only get audio in one ear @:-)

Can't recall last time I was on UA aircraft with two prong, other than BF with noise cancelling headphones.

It used to be like that. Nowadays, you still get audio in both ears when using 1 prong in a -prong jack
