Look at the following promo from United and see if you can tell me where Seating Area 4 is, seeing as Area 3 has the last 10 rows? :?

Easier Boarding Process
In response to your comments, and in an effort to improve our service, we've created a new boarding process for all United® flights. It will simplify and speed up boarding, and enable elite customers to continue to enjoy early boarding privileges. This new process began June 10th across most of United's system.

Here's How it Works:
Boarding for United First® and United Business® customers will remain the same.
Global Services members may board at any time.
United Economy® customers will no longer board by rows, but by seating areas.
Your boarding pass will inform you in which area you are seated.

Boarding Sequence for United Economy Customers
Seating Area 1 Elite (Premier®, Premier Executive® and Premier Executive 1K®) and Star AllianceTM Gold and Silver Members
Seating Area 2 Economy Plus® customers
Seating Area 3 Last ten rows of aircraft
Seating Area 4 All remaining customers

Try looking on the UA site and making a dummy booking. Previously (I haven't) tried recently they had a seating plan for each flight so you could self allocate from the available seating. Maybe it's still there :!: :?: :D
