CLEVELAND -- United Airlines says it will replace the seats in economy class next year on 152 planes.
The renovations will be on the Airbus fleet, which have a three-and-three seat configuration in coach.
The new slim and lightweight seats will save on fuel costs, according to the airline.
With a thinner seat back, United says they'll be able to add an extra row to the aircraft without sacrificing leg room.
Many airlines around the globe have added the new slim seats, in an effort to make planes lighter.
The rollout is expected to take place next year. It's one of several changes United Airlines is making to their fleet.
The company is adding larger overhead bins to the Airbus planes and will also add Wi-Fi to all planes by 2015.
Passengers at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are weighing in on the planned changes.
