This past week I had a flight to Denver, and since I was a newly minted Continental Platinum with reciprocal elite benefits with Star Alliance members, I booked a direct flight on United to DEN. I was upgraded at the gate to Economy Plus, and was assigned the bulkhead seat with ample leg room. United’s economy plus has 36′ of pitch vs United’s economy of 31′ of pitch, see here for details on seating charts at United and other airlines.
Here are a few pictures from the Trip.
If you are a Delta/NW elite member and haven’t already done so, go ahead and apply for the Continental status match. You’ll have Star Gold status through February 2011, and the perks are defintely worth the few minutes of your time.
