The 4K-definition touch screens in Economy are the largest available on the United Airlines fleet. All passengers can enjoy Bluetooth connectivity to easily connect their headphones and earbuds to the advanced In-Flight Entertainment system.

United Airlines offers extra comfort for passengers seated at the back of the plane. Out of the 180 seats in the Economy cabin, 57 seats provide more legroom with United’s Economy Plus.

Inside the A321neo plane, there’s a self-serve snack station at the back of the Economy cabin. Passengers can grab snacks and drinks whenever they want.

The A321neo also has more space for a better experience. The unique space advantages of the A321’s cabin give passengers more room at shoulder level. The overhead bins are also larger, so everyone can easily store their carry-on bags.

PriestmanGoode Design of United Airlines Experience

The A321neo is a new design by PriestmanGoode in collaboration with United Airlines. PriestmanGoode has been working with the airline since 2012 on various projects related to passenger experience, including cabin interiors, lounges, airport branding, and wayfinding.

Tom Lipscomb, associate director at PriestmanGoode, commented: “The reveal of the A321neo cabin is the result of several years of development. As design partners to United, our role is to deliver a consistent passenger experience across all aircraft types, each time introducing innovation and new detailing across the signature interior. The design team is pleased to see this aircraft enter service and read the very positive response from passengers, the media and all teams we work with across United Airlines.”
