United has reconfigured its 757-300 planes to increase density, primarily by adding non E+ seats (1 fewer E+ seats, 22 more E seats).


New Configuration
Boeing 757-300 (753)
24F 54E+ 156E


Post 165 assesses Seats 7DE (and 8ABC) (summary - watch out)
The armrest between 23 B/C and D/E is movable.
The inboard armrest on 23A & F is fixed and contains the tray table.

oh wow this is awesome didn't know the windows lined up too with this seat map. Thanks for this! 8A is the only left seat with the exception of a couple middle seats. Is the door bulge super obstructive or is the leg space still decent compared to other seats? Never sat in this kind of seat before

It is obtrusive, but it won't cause you back problems. The window is also not great for looking out requires a fairly sharp neck angle. Personally I don't pick this unless it's the last window seat. But if you do want a window with easy up/down, it will do the job.

Another way to look at 8A: it's the only window aisle seat on the plane.

this is also a 5 hour flight so will I have to contort myself away from the bulge and into my neighbor's leg space for 5 hours, or will it still be sufficient for me to stretch my own legs?

Sufficient room to stretch without bothering your neighbor.

Do what you gotta do.

Do the seats in row 6 recline? I'm debating between 1A and something in 6. If I want to sleep I would prefer to recline with no one behind me, but if 6 doesn't recline I'll take 1A without thinking twice after reading through this thread.

Does row 43 have windows???

Hello, im flying out on this configuration from Chicago - Orlando pretty soon. The only window seat I could get was 43F. Wondering if it has a window or the seats were pushed so far back theres nothing.

Question about 23A & 23F

Quick question about the exit door in row 23. Does the door protrude into the leg/foot area? I know the door next to 8A protrudes quite a bit, but unsure about row 23. TYIA.

No impact for 23.

Note that these are window exits over the wing so no protrusions.
