This trip began as British Airways trip to Amsterdam and then KLM's 787-10 back to the states. Until KLM swapped aircraft sending me on a massive tinker, which will unfold over the trip reports.
This is a short report. Simply to show what United has done with their ancient fleet of 757-300s. These are the new slim line F seats.
There are 6 rows, 24 seats in first. And about as comfortable as they look.
Under the armrest is a slot to place an electronic device, except on takeoff and landing.
A power outlet under the drink tray, but no USB power port that I could find.
There is one redemming quality to two seats in first class, 1A and 1B.
Good for computer bags as well as stretching out.
It's always fun to see retro liveries.
Flooding on the Missouri river around Omaha "Eppy" Field.
An actual decent meal on United.
My one takeaway from this flight is how noisy these 757's are compared to current aircraft like the 787 and A350. Having said that the nostalgic 757 was always one of my favorite aircraft. This was an old Continental 757-300 as United flew the -200 variant only.
Having earned elite status for life on United many years ago, I don't often fly them anymore. This was a pleasant flight. The seat was ok, the food was decent. Entertainment using their app and your own tablet worked fine. Having said that, United is not the airline it was "back in the day" for me.
