Economy Plus Seating on United Airlines Review

Get United merchandise here…

A little extra legroom goes a long way.

Nothing gets your trip started on the right foot like extra legroom. Purchase Economy Plus® for your next flight or for all available flights for an entire year. Stretch out with more room to work and relax, sit near the front of the cabin so you can exit the plane easier at your destination and more. You’ll also earn Premier® qualifying dollars.Footnote1

MileagePlus Premi​er Platinum members and higher enjoy advance complimentary access for themselves and up to eight companions, and Premier Gold members enjoy advance complimentary access for themselves and one companion. Premier Silver members continue to enjoy complimentary space-available access to Economy Plus for themselves and one companion upon check-in.

Please note that Economy Plus seating is not available to customers who are traveling on a Basic Economy ticket.

United calls its roomier seats “Economy Plus.” Economy Plus seats have 34–36 inches of legroom, depending on the plane. They’re available on all mainline United flights and some larger jets run by United Express carriers. Some jets have so much Economy Plus seating that people can end up assigned those seats at the airport for free. If you pay, the seats aren’t cheap: On a flight from New York to Denver, the airfare was $150 each way but it would have cost another $100 to be bumped into a better seat.

Ok Peter flying In style

Scott Mannear says:

Considering that some people actually die each year from blood clots that form in their legs during cramped long flights, seems much more reasonable than first class.
