Seat 11D
From Denver-Denver International(DEN)
To Las Vegas-Mc Carran Intl(LAS)

Flying TED from DEN to LAS, I ended up boarding in zone 6 (i.e., you'll never find any space in the overhead bin zone). Happily, the flight was not very full and the gate agent, glancing me over, decided that I definitely required an emergency exit seat. Plenty of legroom. Flying from LAS to ORD a few days later, I checked in at the kiosk and took the economy plus seat for an extra $35 or so. Managed to land myself an exit seat again. Well worth the extra money. Generally I don't like low cost carriers (or mainline carriers that act low cost) but this was quite bearable since my expectations were low to begin with. Every once in a while, UA does manage to surprise.

Seat 2A
From Richmond-Vancouver Intl(YVR)
To San Francisco, CA-San Francisco International(SFO)

I naively wondered why my travel agent could not book me on Air Canada from YVR to SFO. The United flight, leaving five minutes later, however, was wide open. And then I flew United and knew why. The seat itself is adequate. The overhead screens, however, were not functional, a frequent woe when flying UA. (This is one of their MODERN aircraft??) All in all fine for a 2.5 hour trip, but sevice would certainly have been more attentive on AC and somehow I get the feeling that I could have watched a movie, as well.

Seat #NA
From Richmond-Vancouver Intl(YVR)
To San Francisco, CA-San Francisco International(SFO)

Further to comments wondering why the UA flight from Vancouver to SFO is always wide open (but the AC is impossible to find a seat on), the food is probably the real reason why. I sat there, flabbergasted, at what was set before me. A salad. Just a salad. With processed cheese and luncheon meat to spice it up? I would have laughed except for all the money I had spent on my ticket. Wine was a bland American chardonnay. Extremely disappointing.

Seat 2C
From Allentown-Lehigh Valley International(ABE)
To Orlando-Orlando International(MCO)

I up graded to business on my trip home, i was so glas as it was full, there was so much more room as I am on the bigger size. It made the trip home so much more plesant. I put a movies on my lap top and watched the whole thing then we were landing. Never heard any engine noise in business class, it was great.

Seat 9F
From San Diego
To Dulles

I love Premium Economy and just won't fly coach anymore. The 5 inches of extra leg room really make a difference, and when the guy in front of you drops his seat all the way down (which always happens) it doesn't feel like it is right in your face.

Seat 21C

Main Cabin Still seems CROWDED !

Can't you give the average low income traveler a break.

When a 300 pounder + sits beside you ,it's not a pleasant trip .
