Following on the heels of American Airlines and others, United Airlines is announcing an overhaul of their business class cabins. The new international United Business cabin will have a seat that reclines to a 6-foot, 4-inch lie-flat bed. Each seat offers audio and video on-demand and a video screen for viewing more than 150 hours of movies and TV programs. Seats are in pairs of two facing both forward and backward. Other onboard enhancements, include new menu selections developed by Chef Charlie Trotter and fine wine offerings from Master Sommelier and Master of Wine Doug Frost. The modification of the carrier's entire international fleet should be finished in 2009.
