Premium transcontinental service
Make transcontinental travel a breeze
We've expanded and enhanced our premium transcontinental service, including new service between Boston and San Francisco. Learn more below.
Stretch out in a premium flat-bed seat
United Business seats are welcoming and spacious, bringing a high level of comfort to all transcontinental routes. You'll now enjoy special bedding from iconic New York brand Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as noise-reducing headphones to help you feel right at home.
When you need to be productive, you'll find plenty of room for your laptop, tablet and documents, plus in-seat power to help your devices stay fully charged. And when you're ready to get some rest, you can easily adjust your seat to your preferred reclining position or into a fully flat bed with more than 6 feet of sleeping space. United Business seats are also equipped with seatback on-demand entertainment systems, featuring a personal 15" video monitor.
Stay refreshed with a premium amenity kit
We're excited to offer a new amenity kit that features Cowshed, the premium spa and lifestyle brand of Soho House & Co. The amenity kit is yours to keep upon arrival at your destination.
Rhapsody inflight magazine
Rhapsody is a monthly lifestyle and literary magazine created exclusively for our premium-cabin customers, and features articles about culture, luxury goods, fine dining and hospitality.
We are proud to partner with The Trotter Project to create seasonal dishes and drinks inspired by the four cities that are part of the premium transcontinental service — you'll be able to sample some of the distinctive flavors that put these destinations on the map. After your meal, enjoy desserts inspired by the United Polaris menu.
Before arrival, we’ll offer you hot towel service again, as well as a selection of snacks.
A variety of inflight beverages is available throughout your flight, including water, soft drinks, juice, tea and freshly brewed coffee. In United Business and Economy Plus, we also offer a wide selection of alcoholic beverages, including high-quality spirits and liqueurs. Try our featured Crafthouse® Cocktails Moscow Mule with a lime and candied ginger skewer, sip a glass of champagne or wine, or sample a unique craft beer from our seasonal menu. Our premium wines are chosen in consultation with Doug Frost, Master Sommelier and Master of Wine, to ensure that we provide the best flavors to complement your meal.
