The best seats you’ll never get on United’s 787-9 Dreamliner


Want the absolute best seats on United Airlines‘ 787-9 Dreamliner? Of course you do. Alas, as a passenger it almost certainly isn’t going to happen. The best seats are reserved for the crew working the long flights. And they are very, very nice. Full length beds with pillows, power and privacy. Check out the 787 crew rest bunks on United’s 787-9.

Or, maybe you’ll get lucky and get to experience the crew rest bunks yourself.

But I wouldn’t bet on that happening.

As for good seats passengers actually can book on United’s 787-9, I’ve got some details on that, too.

  1. Eh, I don’t envy them. I would prefer the bulkhead J seat on the 789 over the crew rest. TV, windows and a relatively airy space are a must for me when it comes to flying long flights.

  2. I couldn’t find your email address so I’ll write a comment. Searching for El Al awards gives me kale not seats!

    Until kale can give me magic flying powers I think it needs to be fixed. ha ha
