United First Suite With XM

United Airlines today launched a major revision of its United First Suite to reflect digital reality of its passengers. While it keeps a seat that converts into a perfectly flat bed, the new suite is surrounded by electronics. At the front of the occupant is a 15.4-inch widescreen LCD that provides on-demand music, video, and games; amongst the programming be 50 channels of pre-supplied XM radio content with over 3,000 songs available, according to United.

Flyers who bring their own equipment onboard are expected to receive similar treatment. An iPod connector will keep the Apple device charged during long-haul flights while listened to with a pair of noise-cancelling headsets. Laptop owners can also plug their systems in during the flight using a 110-volt universal power port. As with the existing suite, the airline will only make the refreshed United First Suite available to international travelers on wide-body planes such as the Boeing 747 or 777. A different angle of the suite is available after the jump. [Via Orbitcast]
