The United Business experience on p.s. flights


Enjoy the convenience of Premier Access® priority travel services

We want your entire experience to be seamless, starting the moment you arrive at the airport. When you travel in United Business, our Premier Access priority travel services will take the hassle out of airport processing with exclusive check-in counters and security lanes and priority baggage handling and boarding, to give you plenty of time to get settled before takeoff.

Unwind before your flight

Visit a United Club℠ location to relax and enjoy complimentary food and beverages or to finish up any last-minute work before boarding. We offer premium wine and spirits and complimentary Wi-Fi at all locations, plus conference rooms and shower facilities at select locations. When you’re departing from Newark, you’ll also enjoy the New York area's best airport environment, with chef-driven restaurants, redesigned lounge-like gate areas and more.

Ease into your journey

After takeoff, a flight attendant will offer you a hot towel to help you relax and a premium beverage of your choice along with our signature warmed mixed nuts.


Stretch out in a premium flat-bed seat

United Business seats are welcoming and spacious, bringing a high level of comfort to transcontinental travel. When you need to be productive, you’ll find plenty of room for your laptop, tablet and documents, plus in-seat power to help your devices stay fully charged. And when you’re ready to get some rest, you can easily adjust your seat to your preferred reclining position or into a fully flat bed with more than 6 feet of sleeping space. A plush duvet, full-sized pillow and noise-reducing headphones help you feel right at home. United Business seats are also equipped with seatback on-demand entertainment systems, featuring a personal 15” video monitor.
