Introducing the new United Premium Plus

03 December 2018 / Airline News

Earlier this year, United Airlines announced the launch of United® Premium Plus – a new Premium Economy experience on select flights. That features a roomy seat that’s even more spacious and relaxing than United Economy Plus® seats.

United® Premium Plus will be available for sale from this week (3 December) for travel starting 30 March 2019.

Passengers are able to enjoy a more spacious seat with more legroom, elbow room and recline, as well as a larger entertainment screen, an individual power outlet, USB charger and dedicated overhead bins. Including onboard perks such as noise-cancelling headphones, a Saks Fifth Ave blanket and plush pillow and an elevated dining experience with complimentary alcoholic beverages.

United® Premium Plus passengers will receive Premier Access® check-in and priority boarding as well as discounted access to United Club locations and two standard checked bags.

United® Premium Plus will be available for purchase and award travel, and will offer more upgrade flexibility and choices. It is a perfect product for business customers whose corporate travel policy doesn't allow booking in Business Class as it is still part of the Economy Cabin.

At the time of an upgrade request, customers can choose to be considered for an upgrade to both United® Premium Plus and United Polaris® business Class using a single Global Premier Upgrade.
