Reserve a seat in United Airlines Economy Class, suitable for short distance flights
Economic travel and long-range comfort finally come together with United Economy class seating. This class features a fully adjustable head rest and plenty of entertainment options. On our 3 cabin international 777’s and 767’s an individual audio/video system in the forward seat back lets you choose from nine channels of movie and TV programming, and news through a comfortable adjusting headset (not on 747-400 or US domestic aircraft). A video Airshow flight map on international aircraft- which traces the flight in progress-allows you to monitor your travel in real time. In select rows, Economy Plus will give you those extra inches of legroom you always wished for.

According to the US airline, with the exception of passengers who have purchased a Basic Economy Class ticket, anyone can opt for Economy Plus.
