My last three international trips (Averaging 17-18 hour journey to Asia ) were done in Business class. However, I couldn’t justify paying $10 k for a 9.5 hour journey (San Francisco to London) so I purchased United Plus. I had read the mostly positive reviews, nevertheless was apprehensive how comfortable the United Plus could possibly be.

I was very pleasantly surprised. I could stretch out my legs, didn’t feel claustrophobic when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat.
The seat (while being no business class seat) was fine.
I should also mention that I am 5’4” tall!
I tall passenger may disagree!

The food was average, but I don’t care about that. The TV monitor was small and the touch screen not very responsive , but that was ok too!

The United plus seat was good value for money. So much so that I will seriously consider United plus next time I travel a 9 hour or less journey. I think I will splurge for business only on the ridiculously long flights which exceed 15 hours.
