UNITED AIRLINES ADDS PREMIUM SEATS

United Airlines has announced the next step in its commitment to making more customers more comfortable by adding more than 1,600 United Polaris® business class and United First seats to nearly 250 international and domestic aircraft.

United’s popular Polaris Seat.

“In an era where many airlines are adding seats to their aircraft to crowd more passengers onto the plane, we’re re-configuring more than 100 of our aircraft and doing exactly the opposite – for the benefit of our customers,” said Andrew Nocella, United’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer.

United’s Premium Plus seat.

In the next several weeks, United will introduce to its fleet the first of 21 reconfigured Boeing 767-300ER aircraft featuring 16 additional United Polaris business seats in the premium cabin – a more than 50 percent increase in all-aisle-access seating – bringing the total premium cabin seat count to 46.

United Economy Plus seat.

“We’ve been really impressed with United’s investment in and roll-out of its premium product, particularly on its trans-Pacific routes”, says The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.

“We expect these additional Polaris business class and United First seats to be upgrade-friendly, which is terrific for frequent United flyers. They’ll also be very attractive to new United customers. It’s a great move by the airline”, added Hosper.

The newly reconfigured aircraft will also feature 22 United® Premium Plus seats; 47 Economy Plus® seats and 52 Economy seats.

United will first operate the reconfigured 767 – which will feature the highest proportion of premium seats on any widebody operated by any U.S. carrier – between Newark/New York and London, offering 50 percent more premium seats in the largest premium route in the world.

The airline expects to introduce all the reconfigured aircraft to its fleet by the end of next year.

UNITED AIRLINES WIPES OUT SURFBOARD FEES

To celebrate California recently naming surfing as the state’s official sport, United Airlines— California’s global airline, is getting on board and removing service fees for surfboards for customers travelling to or from California.

Customers travelling with surfboards, wakeboards or paddleboards on direct United Airlines or United Express itineraries that originate or end at any California airport will not have to pay the previous $150 or $200 service fee to check these items.

Standard checked-bag fees only will apply.

To help preserve California’s coast and oceans, United is donating $50,000 to Sustainable Surf, a California-based environmental nonprofit that operates as an innovation lab using surfing as a force for good—to solve the ocean health crisis by 2050.

“United and surfing are as ‘California’ as can be”, says The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.

“Australians travelling with their boards to California’s iconic breaks will love this initiative”, adds Peter.

Janet Lamkin, United’s president for California said, “California made it official: surfing is our state sport. We want to make it easier for customers to surf our beautiful beaches, whether they’re visiting or call the Golden State home.”

“This partnership continues our commitment to the environment by supporting an organisation like Sustainable Surf, which helps keep our beaches beautiful”, added Janet.
