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.

Is there an error in the app seat map for this aircraft? It shows exit row red triangles at row 20 and 22. However, the website and aerolopa show exit rows at 20 and 21, which makes more sense. Rows 21 and 22 are fully occupied already on my flight, so I can't see if it gives the exit row advisory when selecting a seat in either.

There are two versions of the aircraft. The Aerolopa is showing the pre slimline version. Almost if not all of the aircraft is now slimline, which has a weird layout with missing seats in row 21.

2nd row exit seats used to be the best in economy in the non slim line version. Not anymore in the slimline version.

Isn't this the slimline version?

The app looks like this.


I forgot to write earlier, but I was trying to figure out whether row 20 reclines or not. If row 21 does not have the door, then row 20 could recline, but if 21 does, which I think is likely, then 20 would not recline. I see now that an earlier picture in this thread shows row 21 with a door.

Just double checking that the new IFE on the refreshed slimline 757 has bluetooth?

If you are very galley sensitive, 4F, otherwise 1A for the footwell. I have slept well in both.

My preference is 4F: I just really like that seat. In all honesty, I love a B752, so Iíd take any window seatóan aisle if I had to.

4F, decline meal service. Go right to sleep once in the air, which isn't much anyway, but helps a bit.

1A, use sleep mask and noise cancelling head phones (in ear since Iím a side sleeper). The wedge foot wells in rows 2-4 is a tight fit and I donít have big feet.

This was 22A. As others posted above, unlimited legroom and I had no issue putting my backpack in the overhead. Similar to flying in 7A except people don't trip over your feet boarding. Only downsides were, like row 7, the video screen folds out, so you can't start watching your shows until after takeoff and they make you stow it at 10k, and obviously you can't alight as quickly as row 7. But still the best E- seat. As a Silver I am glad I decided to keep it and not move to E+ middle at check-in.

Row 7 info

Does Row 7 (bulkhead) on the newer version really have notable restricted legroom like SeatGuru implies?

7A, 7B, and 7C have "unlimited" legroom since they are adjacent to door 2L. 7D, 7E, and 7F have a wall in front which maybe restrictive, especially if you are tall.

Also, do *NOT* rely on SeatGuru for any reliable info...it's been outdated for years now. Aerolopa seems to be the recommended site these days. Here's the link for info on the 757-200. The seat/window spacing shown in the diagrams should all be basically correct.
