It's the single reason I'd fly UA
long haul compared to most competition
(now that AA
has introduced their LRTC concept
I can get on E+ seats using my status (Star Alliance Gold on AC
). I believe that
if you pay full fare economy you'll automatically get an E+ seat. Also, as
SegmentKing pointed out, you can sometimes pay a small fee to move to the
E+ cabin. I'm not sure whether I'd pay for the extra legroom (maybe on really
long flights), but it's nice to get it for free with my status.
The downside with flying UA
is that, if you do not get an E+ seat, the leg
room at the back is pretty miserable and apparently worst than most other
airlines. My girlfriend flew FRA
at the back last year and she's
still bitching about it.
