    I’m with you on the speculation about the 737s and 757s, although I could see a case for keeping 20 F seats on the 739/739ER fleet.

    It also begs the question, if they were to keep 12 F seats on the 73G, will the similar sized 319 see a reduction in E+ to bring it to 12 F seats? And will the same happen with the 320 to bring it to 16 F seats, keeping the plane more in line with the similar sized 737s?

    The A319 only has 8 now while the A320 has 12 now.

    I’d love to see the Airbii get upgraded but I’m not betting on it. Ditto for the 739s keeping 20. I can see the case – they are much more like a 757 than a 73G, particularly given the routes that they operate on – but unless managements sees the premium cabin yields those seats are gone.

    I’m not sure if any of you have seen the post Continental made on their facebook page about this, but it is sad to see some of the reactions. Most of the people on there hate this decision, I think primarily because they think United will decrease the pitch in the back of the bus, to make room for the ELR in E+. I pointed out that most United’s fleet has as much, if not more pitch in the back of the bus, but the CO fanboys don’t seem to comprehend such a simple concept.

    Hopefully the 787s will now come with E+ out of the box. When they come.
