United announces new Business Class Seats

Today, United Airlines announced their new lay-flat business class seating that will start rolling out into the fleet later this year with a completion of the roll out in 2009.

The new business class seat is a substantial upgrade over the current seats including:

  • Lay-flat 6'4" bed
  • 15.4 inch LCD display
  • 110 volt outlet -- no more need for empower adapter!!!!
  • Apple iPod dock
  • USB power supply to power/recharge devices
  • etc., etc.

You can take a look at the following for more information:

All I can say is "bring it on!!!" I'm ready for it today.

UPDATE: 7/24 - The down side in all this is that there are substantially less business class seats in each of the aircraft: 747 - 53 (down from 72), 767 - 26 (down from 32), and 777 - 40 (down from 45/49). So while the seats are much better, there are less of them making upgrades much more competitive. TANNSTAAFL.

Just like all the others ;) That 6'4" seat is /just/ too small for my 6'5" frame - so these seats tend to be more uncomfortable than even the normal "underclass" (economy) seats. Just another hint that I should stop flying.
