I have flown Ted more often than I can count. It is pretty decent. Let me put it this way: If I were in Economy from point A to point B, and could choose between Mainline and Ted, I would go with Ted. THe only exclusion is that I can usually upgrade to first on mainline, which I usually do.
The snack boxes are pretty good if you are hunglry, and worth the $5. There will be 4 FA
's, instead of the required 3. YOu will have "Tedevision", which has some pretty entertaining shows, such as Leno, Conan, Reba, etc. Last time from ORD-TPA, we even had a movie.
The only thing which ticks me off is that you can't have a full can of your beverage. You can still always ask for more.

I am unfortunately not in ECO +, but I am hoping to score that or an emergency exit row if I check in early enough (easy check in online)
Just so you know, the emergency exit rows are part of Economy plus, and are for Premier Executives and 1K's only. They are usually always filled up. One thing which does work is 45 minutes prior to departure see the Gate Agent, and ask her for a seat further up, or lets say a different seat than you have. Back when I was not an elite, it worked every time.

Great fun, great service and an upgrade on the way back.
I am happy you liked it, but it really is not an upgrade, since they are really the same class.
