The B.A.T. (Bay Area Traveler) has moved! See

Good News: United is busy updating some of its hardest working, most worn out looking planes: its 757s.  New seats are all leather and have power outlets. Bad News: It’s cramming in even more seats on an already cramped plane. (No fun sitting at the back of one of these tubes!)

The new all-leather Recaro seats that United is installing are thinner (front to back) which means the carrier can add an extra row of seats. Seat width is mostly unchanged.

We can’t confirm if Economy Plus seat pitch has been cut.

Check out a great blurb, photos and discussion of this on the Cranky Flier.
