United Airlines has announced that it will strengthen its service between Heathrow and New York/Newark next year by operating all its five daily flights on the route with widebody aircraft during the summer peak season, nearly doubling the number of flat-bed seats offered on upgraded flights. The move will increase overall capacity by 5% year-on-year during the April-September period.
Flights currently operated by Boeing 757-200 aircraft will be operated by three-cabin 767-300s, each featuring a total of 183 seats – six in United Global First, 26 in United BusinessFirst and 151 in United Economy, including 67 Economy Plus seats with added legroom and increased personal space. Like premium cabins on all United international long-haul flights, Global First and BusinessFirst will feature flat-bed seats.
