Economy Plus Subscription is Back!

Starting at $499.00

Stretch out and enjoy more space on your next flight – and the next, and the next.

Get comfortable in Economy Plus® seating and enjoy more space to work or relax in the air. With a seat near the front of the United Economy® cabin, you can also take advantage of a quicker exit from the plane once you land. Your subscription will let you book an Economy Plus seat on any United or United Express® flight with Economy Plus availability. Choose a subscription just for yourself, for you and a companion, or for everyone in each of your reservations (up to eight companions).

Clearly we're not the target market for these services.

But, IMO, the important takeaway from this is they're beginning to close the gap between CO's systems and the PMUA systems they retired. Here we are 16 months after the downgrade, and they're now re-introducing these profit centers that PMUA used to have.

While there's still quite a bit of work to do (and more gaps to close), at least it's movement in the right direction.

Of course - just wish we could disable / delete all that fill from the My Account page (I know the UAI has said everything's on the table in the re-design). Too much filler, all in the wrong order of priority.

Agreed - hopefully the UG process will be the next step

As there is a robust discussion in the thread linked by several members above, let's focus the discussion in that thread. I'll close this. Ocn Vw 1K, Moderator.
