Upgraded to first class on the return flight. This time a daytime flight for the family of four (2A-E). This was a legacy United crew but they had the new Continental "can do" attitude that is improving this airline slowly. Service was outstanding and the crew made sure the kids were happy. Food was decent and the drinks were offered numerous times. Overall a very good flight. Baggage claim at Newark was lightning fast - the bags beat us out of the plane as we were "priority" status. I would fly again.

I am appalled that in addition to the $60 baggage fee, your airline had the nerve to gouge passengers for snacks.
Get smart and start charging your passengers who hold everyone else up by bringing baggage on-board. Perhaps if you engage in this practice you'll have enough revenue in order not to charge for checked baggage and snacks.
Not one passenger in the area of my seat purchased a snack....wake up and start respecting your passengers.

Plenty of legroom with this seat. United does, however, need to invest some money in updating their seats for comfort, as well as upgrading amenities. There was no television or food on this (almost) 6 hour flight. Final leg of my trip was a 3.5 hr. Flight from Sydney to Christchurch, and Air New Zealand had not only individual television for each seat, but dinner! My question is...."why, United?".....

This was the first time for me to fly on an Airbus with this configuration. The aisle was almost impassible for me. I had to walk down the aisle sideways to get to my seat. The headroom was nice. The plane just felt small in comparision to the B737 line of planes. I will try to avoid in the future is possible

Bulk head is roomy, space extends to under first class seats. Flight attendants were very personable. Plane is old and only shows one movie, did have Wifi for purchase. My family of three had A to C and it was average for roominess.

The seat was fine and right behind the exit row. Family took up four seats in the row (A-D) and no problems were experienced. Enjoyed the flight with a movie and it was on time with no concerns.

Economy Plus - After a red-eye from SFO-ORD on a 757, I took the 319 from ORD-YYZ, again, not clearing the upgrade list for Premier members. Yet, the consolation was a rather comfortable sleep on Economy Plus

I paid for the upgrade to Economy Plus. While the service is the same (read: non-existent), the emergency exit seat is very comfortable. As I am quite tall, it was well worth the expense.

The only good thing about the plane on this flight was that no one occupied the two seats next to me, so I was able to move to the middle seat and stretch out.

The aircraft was nice and clean. It was the best aircraft that I flew on. The legroom and space could be more accommodating.
