United First Class Seat 1Seat

My seat which is seat number 2K – is right at the front of the plane. The plane I am in is quite large and has 2 levels. I am seated in First Class. There are only 12 seats here which provides a more private sense of space.

The seat is quite large compared to Business Class Seats I have flown on before. My foot could not touch the front of the seat or reach the TV! So ample space to wriggle your toes and foot around.

The seats are not leather though – it is fabric – so maybe they will change that soon.

The TV screen is big enough to watch a movie easily.

It does feel more of a pod as well – and you actually have 4 windows next to you! In economy you only have 1 or maybe half – so you can imagine the space provided!

The seat converts to a 180 degree flat bed quite easily. The controls are much easier than Asiana Airlines flights to control. For a larger person – you are able to sleep quite confortable if you are under 6 foot. The width is average for a First Class or Business Class.

Date: 28/4/2014

Route: Lounge Access before flying from San Francisco to Tokyo, Japan.


The First Class Lounge for United Airlines is located in the International Airport – near Gate G98. It’s not actually obvious – but you will find it eventually.


Upon entry of the First Class Lounge – there is a reception area where you provide your passport and boarding ticket for entry. Once the staff has done this – I take the elevator downstairs to the First Class Lounge

The Lounge is very posh – large sofa chairs and tables for people to eat and work
