Economy Plus Seats???

If we can't get first class is it worth paying extra for Economy Plus? Are the seats any bigger, more comfortable??

Thanks.

We definitely thought it was worth it. You have 4-5 extra inches of legroom but the seats are not wider.

There was a looong thread on this not too long ago, so search "economy plus" and see what you get.

For me, for a long flight, I say "yes." For a short flight, which is more common for me, I say "no." Basicly is it more leg room ... more room in front of you.

Yes, it is definitely worth the money. I would also check on the type of plane for the first class flights. I would not pay first class on some flights.

You can see the difference if you check the seating plans on Kayak.com

AA has a good 767 aircraft on at least one direct flight to Maui out of DFW. Avoid 757's.

well worth it for just the leg room itself...seats are the same size but you arent and squeezed in because you have more room in the front!!

SeatGuru shows you seat statistics, by flight number. A great resource!

ChiSue (or anyone who can answer)

Why avoid AA 757's? I looked on seat guru, is it because of the leg room?

Our trip isn't until Sept. 2011, but I am looking at purchasing tickets pretty soon.

The 757 aircraft have always had terrible seats -- uncomfortable in coach and in first.
