United to fit more lie-flat beds

United Continental is investing $550 million to add lie-flat seats on 62 additional long-distance aircraft. The investment brings the total aircraft with flat-bed seats to 185, more than any other US carrier. The airline also plans to introduce streaming wireless video in coach cabins on its 747 aircraft, and double the overhead bin space on more than 150 single-aisle planes and retrofit its fleet of 13 757s. United is also planning to offer its Channel 9 air-traffic control audio to Continental’s 337 mainline aircraft. Passengers who select the channel now on United’s 373 planes can hear pilots interact with air-traffic controllers during flight. Chief executive Jeff Smisek hopes the upgrades will help him build the world’s leading airline.
