Many people are curious as to whether UA economy plus is worth the extra cash. Compared to airlines such as Air New Zealand it is a crap program. It may not offer nearly flat seats with PTVs but it does offer early boarding and bigger legroom. For the price (reasonably low) this is worth it at least on flights over four hours. The extra legroomdoes feel great and make a difference. Economy on United is very basic, with very little perks compared to competitors (may change with merger with Continental). Stay posted as this will change in the foreseeable future!
