I was lucky enough to get a UA Economy Plus seat from Tokyo to Singapore last week. And boy did it make a world of difference. I had a regular coach ticket, with a seat in row 54. I asked the agent if I could be moved up closer and she moved me to row 32. I noticed that my new boarding pass she gave me said "Economy Plus" on it and was very surprised. I asked her how they handle EP and she told me that after all their Premier Mileage passengers, who don't get upgraded, are seated in EP, then it is first come first serve basis. The bad thing is that during the flight, I went for a walk through the aircraft and saw the poor people sitting in regular economy, while there was still about 15 open EP seats! But let me tell you those were the best economy seats I have ever sat in. Great job UA!!!!
