On the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, an aircraft which will be amongst the last to receive “true Polaris”, business class is strikingly familiar.

United Airlines uses B/E Aerospace Diamond seats, which are also used by the likes of Qatar Airways on single aisle planes, American and Delta on transcontinental business class and Air China on many wide body jets.

The seats are configured in a 2x2x2 layout on the 787-9 and although they are not revolutionary by any means, they’re quite effective.

Business class features 48 seats in total spread over two cabins (with a galley and lavatories in between).

United still offers the best bedding in business class, with a mattress pad upon request, a plush pillow and cooling gel foam pillow, and a comfortable blanket. 

The economy plus seats were arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration.

Economy Plus seats have 35″ of pitch, are 17.3″ wide and offer a 4-inch recline.

United’s 787-9s have two economy class cabins with all seats in a 3-3-3 configuration.

The front economy class cabin features Economy Plus, while the rear section is branded United Economy.

Unlike the Lufthansa A380, there are two power ports per row of three seats in addition to a USB charger on the setback monitor.

The seats do not (seem) to recline quite as much as other airlines, but the articulating seat pan slides up when you recline the seat.

A pillow and blanket were waiting at each seat.
