Most of your time flying with us is going to be spent in your seat on the plane. It’s important to choose a seat that’s comfortable and easy to access.
You can buy an extra seat if you need one. It’ll cost you the same amount as your original if you buy them at the same time. You can also do it the day of your trip if an extra seat is available, but the cost may be higher.
United First®, United Business® and United PolarisSM seats are wider than Economy seats. If you don’t want an extra seat, you can buy a premium cabin seat instead or pay for an upgrade if one is available.
If an extra seat isn’t available, you’ll need to change your flight to one that has extra seats. If you’re not in your home city, state, or country, and your new flight requires you to stay overnight we can give you meal and hotel vouchers as well.
