Newbie question about United coach awards

Newbie question about United coach awards

  1. GBOAC


    I’m considering using miles for a United PS transcon flight and I’m wondering if a mileage award can be used for an economy plus seat without paying the upcharge or do you end up paying the same upcharge as you would on a paid economy ticket.
    I’m asking this because I did two test bookings and the first time around it seemed to let me pick an economy plus seat without an additional charge.
    My apologies for such a newbie question but I haven’t used United miles domestically in ages.

    UA doesn’t have a economy plus reward category like some other programs. It’s all economy. If you have status withy UA then you can select a E+ seat. If it allowed you to select that seat then go for it.
