Tags: 2, XM
United Airlines has a new upgrade to their first class suite for their international widebody fleet. The new "United First Suite" reclines in multiple angles and lays down to a totally flat 6-foot, 6-inch bed. But that's only where the goodness begins.
Each suite has a 15.4-inch widescreen flat panel monitor with digital on-demand video and music with different selections of movies, TV and video games. United also will offer 50 channels of XM-branded audio content, providing more than 3,000 songs and a jukebox to create customized play lists.
Other items in the new United First Suite include a 110-volt universal plug for laptop power (compatible with power outlets for 145 countries), a USB port, a set of noise-canceling headphones, an iPod connector, and multiple storage compartments to for your laptop bag and other personal items.

You'll start to see these new First Suites in the fourth quarter of 2007, and eventually in all of their 97-aircraft widebody international fleet.
