Economy Plus now available on United Boeing 757 International flight

United Airlines will add Economy Plus seating to all of its Boeing 757-200 jets that fly on international routes. The seating section offers about six inches more legroom than at United's typical economy class seat.

The move means that United has retrofitted the Boeing 757-200s that joined its fleet as part of the merger with Continental Airlines.

With the reconfiguration, the aircraft have 16 flat-bed seats in BusinessFirst, 45 seats in Economy Plus and 108 in coach. United says the 757-200 reconfiguration project began in late November and involved the installation of 1,845 Economy Plus seats.

The 41 Boeing 757-200s of United Airlines  principally operate between Newark Liberty and Amsterdam, Barcelona, Belfast, Berlin, Birmingham, Copenhagen, Dublin, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, Glasgow, Hamburg, Lima, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Manchester, Oslo, Paris, Shannon, Stockholm and Stuttgart, and between Washington Dulles and Amsterdam and Paris.
