Where comfort meets convenience: 

From seating and ticketing options to a selection of onboard food and beverages, you can decide what’s most important to you in their Economy cabin, with a choice of three Economy experiences – Basic Economy, Economy Plus and United® Premium Plus. 

United® Premium Plus seats are closer to the front of the aircraft and more spacious with more legroom, elbow room and recline.

  • A spot closer to the front of the aircraft means you'll enjoy earlier service and get off the plane, and on your way, faster
  • Our United® Premium Plus seat provides more comfort for customers, including more leg room, recline room and elbow room than most United Economy Plus seats.
  • Plush seat designed for comfort
  • Individual power outlet and USB charger
  • Adjustable leg and foot rest
