United plans to increase the passenger capacity of its flights between London Heathrow and Newark/New York in the summer 2014 by introducing larger aircraft on the route.
The airline will introduce the wide-body Boeing 767-300s instead of the current 757-200s on the route during the April-to-September period. This will also increase the number of available flat-bed seats on the aircraft to nearly double.
Each 767-300 aircraft will have a total of a 183 seats – six in United Global First, 26 in United BusinessFirst and 151 in United Economy, including 67 Economy Plus seats with extra legroom and greater personal space. Global First and BusinessFirst will feature flat-bed seats.
United is also moving all of its flights to London Heathrow to Terminal 2 at Newark Liberty International Airport beginning on June 4.
