BAe 146-300

United Express uses the BAe146 on routes with higher passenger demand. Fortunately they operate this aircraft in a 2-3 configuration unlike some airlines like Lufthansa that have six seats abreast on the same aircraft type. As a result, seating is fairly comfortable compared to other regional jets. The only down side is that since the wing is above the cabin, the ceiling is lowered by about 8 inches in the middle of the cabin. That also takes away much of the overhead storage. Also, the BAe has a comparably noisy cabin. But compared to other United Express aircraft, it is quite acceptable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seats 1 A, C

If these seats exist, they are really nice. Sadly they do not exist on all BAe 146-200. So be careful about reserving them.

Limited View

Due to the engines outside the windows and the wing overhead, you have hardly any view of the ground from here.

This seat is surprisingly uncomfortable, mainly due to the stairs right next to it. Avoid it of you can.
