United Airlines’ new premium seating, United Premium Plus, has gone on sale for travel on select international flights starting 30 March 2019. The new Premium Economy experience will be available on 21 routes by the end of May 2019.


“United Premium Plus gives our customers more options so they can choose the best experience that fits their wants and needs when they travel,” said Andrew Nocella, United’s Executive VP and Chief Commercial Officer. “United Premium Plus includes some of our high-end amenities from United Polaris, and is the perfect option for someone who wants an upgraded experience in the Economy cabin.”

Customers travelling in United Premium Plus will enjoy an elevated travel experience before their flight even leaves the ground, receiving complimentary standard checked bags, as well as Premier Access check-in and priority boarding. United will also offer discounted entrance at United ClubSM locations for customers travelling in United Premium Plus.

Once on board, customers will enjoy a spacious seat with more legroom, elbow room and recline than a standard Economy Plus or Economy seat, as well as a welcome meal, mid-flight snacks and a pre-arrival dining service. In addition to beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, liquor will also be complimentary in United Premium Plus. Customers will also receive an amenity kit, a Saks Fifth Avenue blanket and plush pillow, as well as noise-reducing headphones, making it easier to enjoy hundreds of hours of entertainment on larger seatback entertainment screens. Seats will also be equipped with individual power and USB outlets, dedicated overhead bins and extra storage for customers to keep devices at hand throughout their entire flight.

United Premium Plus aircraft and routes

The new Premium Economy seats debuted on select Boeing 777-200ER and 777-300ER aircraft earlier this summer, and United took delivery of its first 787-10 aircraft earlier this month with United Polaris Business Class and United Premium Plus seats installed. All aircraft with United Premium Plus seats also feature the airline’s signature United Polaris Business class direct-aisle-access seats. On average, United is adding one aircraft with United Polaris Business class and United® Premium Plus seating every 10 days from now through 2020.

The first routes that are expected to offer the full United Premium Plus experience include:
