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 BF seats, 45 E+ seats, and 108 E seats.



--- 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
All economy seats share power (2 outlets per 3 seats), and have VOD screens in the seat back.

Exit row seats are Row 7ABC, Row 20, and Row 21. Row 20 seats have limited recline. Row 7ABC has "unlimited" leg room, although there's an FA jumpseat facing those seats (probably out of reach of anyone but the tallest person).

Row 8DEF are bassinet seats and also a bulkhead. There is an additional ~6" cut out at the bottom of the bulkhead for extra leg room.

Row 10A and F are missing a window (you get one next to the seat, but not towards the seat back of row 9).

I'm flying the international config 757 for the first time. Flying from AUS-EWR in FC. Any seats better or worse than others? Thanks!

I take 1e then 1b if I can get 'em, but that's int'l (I'd rather someone else have to climb over me than me over them). Domestically, if I think I won't head to the lavatory, I probably would opt for 1a or 1f. Plus, domestically at least, you have better chance of 1st choice of meal nowadays.

Great, thanks! Is there space for a bag on the floor at your feet in row 1?

There is some space and a little ledge above that becomes part of the footwell when the seat is totally flat. There will be a ledge to the side of your shoulder that you can place all your in-flight necessities (headphones, mags, glasses,etc). Enjoy the killer AVOD...

Wait, they are flying the PMCO 752 intl config on AUS-EWR? I thought that route was a mainstay for 735/73G

Looks like an extra section for Formula 1. UA doesn't typically fly AUS-EWR at 0915. The 1100 is also a PMCO 752 that day.

If you're in the window, you could put a laptop case against the fuselage. There is also a small amount of room below the footrest, but neither is big enough for a suitcase or duffle, and those areas aren't usable during takeoff.

Pleasant enough flying, though.

1B. Bulkheads have more generous footwells.
