Is United a safe airline?

United is THE safest major airline. The last death on a United flight occurred when a passenger did not follow instructions to put on her seat belt, because of known turbulence, and the aircraft hit such large turbulence that she broke her neck when she was bounced out of her seat and hit the ceiling. Not their fault.

What happens if you don't fit in an airplane seat?

In general, the airlines have the following rules: If the seatbelt doesn't fit, they will give you a seat belt extender. If one extender doesn't do it, the airline won't let you fly (this is very rare, though, and shouldn't be a problem for you) You need to fit between the two armrests.

What are the best seats on United?

Best Seats: Any seat in row 21 is the best pick as the exit row provides more legroom than that found in First Class. Row 20 has equivalent legroom, but recline is slightly limited. Other excellent choices for the best legroom are seats 7D, 7E and 8C, though the proximity to the lavatory and galley might be bothersome.

Is United Economy Plus worth it?

Re: United Airlines - Is Economy Plus worth it? Yes it's totally worth it. You can bend down and access your bag under the seat in front without being a contortionist, as well as the seat in front recline as Joe mentions. You can see the cost by doing a dummy booking and taking it all the way to seat selection.

What are the best seats on an airplane?

Best seat for folks who like legroom
If you are vertically gifted, you want to try to get yourself a seat in the emergency exit row, preferably an aisle seat. Many planes have two over-wing exit rows, and the second row is best because the first exit row will not be able to recline in front of you.

Is United airlines going out of business?

First of all, United has already gone bankrupt — twice in fact! And yet it still flies. When you're a company as big as United, and especially when you're a major airline, bankruptcy isn't the end of life. United was once a good company.

What is the best seat to choose on a plane?

The Best Place to Sit on a Plane
Exit rows, aisle or window seats, and seats close to the front are typically considered the best seats on a plane. On a short business trip, you might want an aisle seat near the front of the plane so you can debark as quickly as possible on arrival.

Which plane is bigger 747 or 777?

Both jumbo jets are significantly larger than the Boeing 777-300ER, the next-largest plane in production. (Boeing puts its capacity in a three-class configuration at 386 seats.) In theory, this makes the 747 and the A380 good candidates for adding capacity at overcrowded airports.
