    The business class reservation was made online in March 2014 for the flight in June 2014 using united.com. Check-In I arrived at Tokyo Narita Terminal 1 South at 1.45pm for the 4.55pm departure. I had tried to check-in 24 hours earlier using the online system but as I have a UK Passport and a ...

    I flew from SFO to ICN. Boarding was the only bad experience of this trip but it was due to punctuality. Boarding was delayed at least 45 minutes but as a First Class customer, I was one of the first to board. There were only 6 passengers in first class and we were at the nose of the plane so ...

    Boarding was crowded offering no Business Class priority line after the announcement from the lounge. A long wait was quickly turned around by a glass of champagne upon arrival at my seat. The seat was large and comfortable and allowed plenty of space for sitting, lying down, work or sleeping. ...

    On the regional flights to Singapore from Hong Kong and return, I was thoroughly impressed. Too many announcements on this sector thus cutting into the IFE programs, but the program variety is very very good! The seats on the lower deck are excellent, cramped on the upper deck. Wine variety on ...

    Not much to complain about on the technical operation of the flight. On time and safe. The new seats on balance are good for sleeping and better than old business for seating. Padding is thin. Don't pick a window seat if your afraid of crawling over your sleeping neighbour. Upper deck ...

    SYD-SFO-SYD. The planes were old but refurbished. Boarding procedures were relatively organised but it occurs from forward cabin to the back (which doesn't make too much sense and slows the whole process down). Seats in Economy Plus (which you have to pay for or are complimentary for elite ...

    Was in seat 6H which is one of the better ones on the lower deck of the B747. I would avoid rows 9 & 10 as they are either side of the galley , rather noisy and as you have no middle to the cabin they feel rather squashed in. Service was fine, food OK, AV good but it is really frustrating this ...

    The new business seat is a massive improvement on the previous cradle seat. I thought I was with a different airline! This was only a short flight between Singapore and Hong Kong but was long enough to try the seat. It has a good length although is a bit cramped for width at the feet. Choose you ...

    LAX to SYD on new first class seats -- fantastic! Roomy and quite comfortable -- excellent cabin crew and service very professional and courteous! Meals were terrific and the in-between meal service just as nice. The flat bed was comfortable and roomy, even when fasten seat belt sign was on! A ...
