This particular seat United appears to be designed by accountants and lawyers. Why?
The clue/s are in the picture.
A) the seat letter ‘F’, facing inward, is out of sight from the aisle and not likely in view whilst sitting,
B) recline? awkwardly. especially for small hands, first-time flyers, and tray-table coordination.
C) audio jacks poke your leg, risk breakage, and create wire crossover. maybe because the electronics control module is easier to assemble this way.
D) none of the above since A, B, and C were total guesses.
E) all of the above?
