it is actually called economy plus or EP and it is greater legroom but not a lot else! other than its further forward so more likely to get off sooner etc.

No seperation from Y and Y+. Just a little further up in the main cabin. If the client wants a more comfortable seat then upgrade to C.

EP on international flights 777s and 747s are in seperate cabins but no seperation in 767s.

In EP you get 4 or even 5 inches of extra legroom, whish is pretty generouse and totally worth $30 for long flight. You will board first after F and C and deplane quickly.

In EP service itself is no defferent then in regular economy. You will get same food, same drinks, same type of seat and same entertainment.

You can.. but you have to be either UA MP elite, or booked in Y, B or M. Depending on the season the difference in fare is a couple hundred $$.

On international 777s and 747s even though there are no walls separated E+ and E such as between E and C, there are galleys and lavatories between them and do create sort of separations. Go to seatguru.com and have a look on plane maps. Actually on UAs 777s there are more separations between E+ and E then E+ and C. On Contrary, 767 does not have any separations.

think you will find it is a bit more than $30 if it is £43 GBP....we do the conversion from dollars not make our own price up at heathrow.

Nope - you have to be assigned one of these. It's not automatic.

... HOWEVER, if you are nice and seated in the front rows of Y+, the cabin crew sometimes come by with J class food and wine. This has happened to me twice.

Yes they are separated. In November last year I took United twice on IAD-MUC and FRA-IAD. Both aircraft were 777s and had E+ separated. Upgrade at the gate to E+ from regular economy at IAD was $79 one-way (IAD-MUC).
It was worth every penny! Seat pich is great, and you get your food beore economy class.

I think the $25-$30 you mentioned is domestic. Intl has always been around $60 and higher depending on the length of the flight.

It's definitely worth the extra money - I tried E+ on LHR-JFK-LHR (777) this time last year and the extra legroom is very welcome on any long-haul flight  Smile

Sorry, your also totally incorrect. E+ and normal E on UA aircraft are NOT separated. If you dont beleive me phone UA and check it out.

Ok, so now your moving the goal posts, there is no bulk head so there is no separate cabin...period!!

there is incentives to sell, the person who sells the most in a month gets vouchers and for every seat you sell you get an extra chance to win a price

Hey UAL777UK - chill out!!!

Everyone is entitled to his/her own opinions. To me and to some of the other members E+ and E are separated, not necessarily with bulk head but with other "heads". If you have flown UA777 or UA747 you will no what I mean.

Was there ever a time where UA would keep the middle seat open on E-Plus? I swear I remember something about that offering but it was all before 9/11 and the airlines changed.

certain levels of MP are still entitled to that however if the seat is needed it is used and people are told that but if the seats are available that is what we try to do.

You are indeed correct albeit you will agree that on every aircraft (mainline) E+ just blends into the normal E seats. Besides, even on the 763 domestic, I still dont consider that to be a separate cabin. F, J and Y....thats separate cabins.

I've been on N784UA which is 777-200ER and N777UA which is regular 777-200. On both flights E+ was separatet by galleys and bathrooms. For me it was totaly separated cabin. Its not like they put some blankets inbetween economy and economy +. There were "hard" walls between them.

They still do that now, but annoy me when they put the upsells up in the exit row, filling my row, while there are middles that they could be sitting in.

Jeez.......I started my defense off by stating that they are not separate cabins referring to bulkheads as would normally separate cabins. I had not appreciated that you beleive separating a cabin is throwing in a Lav and a galley.........PMSL!!! Big grin
