    in terms of new polaris planes, i think they meant “1 new polaris plane per 10 days”, which is inclusive of new deliveries, instead of 1 old plane retrofitted every 10.

    Are these seats comfortable for long trips? I’ve let UA know that I’ll not be flying any of their metal with slimline seats? Are these much the same?

    How’s the cushioning on the bottom? United new slimline seats on regional jets remind me of the aluminum bleachers at my son’s high school football games

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who refuses to fly UA’s short-haul planes in Y because of the slim-line seats!

    We can be sure, if these seats are now narrower, they will also be more uncomfortable – how could they possibly be “better” than those horrible rock-hard slimline seats. Who cares about the “new” recline mechanism if the seats are overall uncomfortable? Stop “spinning” it, United, and turning it on the flying public by always saying “this is what the customer wants”. I take a lot of online travel polls and this question or feedback is NEVER asked (by any airline). It’s NOT.WHAT.WE.WANT.

    Was it the 77W that has the fragmented underseat space that makes ift fairly unusable to leg and bag storage? Any idea if the legs of these seats give everyone equal and sufficient space?
