not sure if this is the right place to ask, but is it worth it to pay 100pp (6pas) to upgrade from standard economy to economy plus on a flight from nyc to tlv? i there much of a diff in seats? or just a waste of money? TIA
Waste IMO unless you're getting the exit row
still not worth 100pp imho
-1 In my own experience and may clients all said it's worth every penny. also Many times you have an empty seat near you as most people are not ready to pay for those seats.
I'm talking about LY, as UA is much more than $100 and many people get it for free so there are no empty seats...
For 6 pax I would spread out in 3 rows with leaving the middle empty in each row and always change on the plane if it gets full.

Do you have the $95 AF card or the $450 AF card?

That card comes with free first checked bag for you and a companion (so basically a total of two free bags)

still not worth 100pp imho


Disagree. Not needed for kids or short people but for me it's worth every penny. I won't even attempt a plan b unless I have it as a backup

Is this actually enforced? Or is it for everyone on the reservation?

I don't know. I rarely travel in large groups so I've never had a chance to test it

Buy Miles with 90% bonus BUYMILES90 expires 6.28.2023

If you buy 45k with bonus total is 85,500 for $1575 = 1.8 cents /mile
not terrible is you have a specific redemption in mind

I booked an award ticket on the united website and paid the taxes with my united CC. The flight is on Air Canada. Should I be getting a free suitcase?
