Would you pay extra money to fly Economy Plus on United Airlines 787?

http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Uni...ng_787-800.php

Seatguru has the United configuration out for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Economy Plus seats are 31 inches for pitch and 18.3 inches for width. Economy is exactly the same. I guess the question is would you pay extra money to avoid the back cabin of the plane. The isle sure looks thin. At least the Business/First cabin isn't eight across.

My guess is that they've made an error. Usually the pitch is 3" to 5" inches greater.

SeatGuru also shows the same pitch for a 767.

SG is not what you call 100% accurate, particularly on new planes.

I did look at seatexpert, but I didn't see it. Did a google search and it seems that mostly the Japanese airlines are the first to get the 787.

United.com has seat map, but they haven't listed pitch, width and recline. Seatguru is totally guessing or worse.
