  1. United to "slim" the A320 fleet - FlyerTalk Forums

    […] the Recaro BL3250s, a/k/a NEK on Lufthansa. http://blog.apex.aero/cabin-interior…boost-revenue/ http://blog.wandr.me/thewan…ir-a320-fleet/ I've flown on these seats with LH a few times. If United doesn't opt for the "comfort" […]

    Those seats on LH are awful, but for a flight from say FRA to TXL, it is hard to really complain. SFO to IAD on the other hand….

    They should just install cubbyholes, where people climb in head and lay flat the whole way. In the same footprint as 3 seats, they can probably fit them 3-high, maybe even 4 for extra dense economy and non-plus sized people.

    Cubbyholes? I think they are going to implement a “coffin” class. climb into a lightweight coffin with a packet of cheese, crackers, and a bottled waater for your comfort.

    Over entitled for seats now I see 🙁

    Pack’em in – just like anchovies and tuna fish. 1K is now becoming an essential defensive maneuver

    On a long flight, I’ll take 5+ hours of laying down in a tight cubbyhole, over sitting in a tight seat.

    With only 21 (24 with F) rows adding a row is going to mean reducing the pitch by more than the inch gained with the BL3250.

    Looks like the under seat storage height has increased.

    I notice UA FF BFFL J Rainey was quoted in the referenced article.
