United B777 to Europe: worth $99 to upgrade to Economy Plus ?

Jump to last reply

We're leaving Friday ORD to FRA on a UA, B-777.

Since our tickets are with Continental we got seats in the back of the plane (at least that's what my agent explained to me): 38J, and 39H & J... Not the very last raw (43), but still not something to be too excited about... Especially me, being claustrophobic...

The UA agent tells me today that the flight is quite full, but we could upgrade to Economy Plus for $99 a ticket, doing it online, 24 hrs prior to flight, or at the airport.

Needs your advice, for a trans-Atlantic flight, is there a significant enough difference in comfort for us to pay that money? And is there any chance we get it for free at the counter?

Thanks...
