In the air

Stretch out in a premium seat

Our new, extra-spacious United Business seat was designed for comfort and convenience, whether you want to relax or work during your flight. It features beautifully contoured two-tone leather, a six-way adjustable headrest and a padded articulating seat cushion that cradles you as you recline.

You'll also find thoughtful storage spaces for your personal items, including an in-arm tablet/laptop slot, a personal water bottle console and double seatback pockets. The seat features a new tray table design with a flip-up mobile device holder that fits more than 200 phone and tablet models, and a universal AC power plug to charge your devices throughout the flight. A granite-topped extendable cocktail table in the center console adds an extra bit of elegance, keeping your tray table free for eating, working or staying entertained.
