Do all economy plus seats on United have extra inches of legroom? I checked my flights on seatguru.com and they show the same pitch as economy on 2 legs if my flights.
Well, they should and I've not encountered anything differently. I would also not put 100% confidence in the data on SeatGuru.
We recently returned from Hawaii to the Midwest via San Francisco and Denver. The E+ seats from Honolulu to SFO had the extra room which made a pleasant flight. We paid for E+ on the SFO to Denver leg as well, but if there was any extra room, it was tiny. Not comfortable at all. A waste of money. It seemed no better than the non-E+ leg from Denver to Omaha.

The answer is yes. It can vary between 3" and 5" depending in the aircraft. Interestingly, the shortest E+ legroom is the 3" (34" total) on the 747.
Which aircraft are you booked on?Edited: 11:43 pm, March 26, 2013
yes but that 3" on 747 turns into 3' three quarters of the way across the pacific with another 4 hours to go.
Don't disagree with that lien. 34" is away better than 31" (which I have to endure on Lufthansa 747s when flying out of Bangalore).
On United 747s I go for the exit row, as it's 5-6 feet of actual legroom. For some reason I can always get it, as most pax shy away from the middle seat (even there) which I lap up with glee.
The question from the OP was does E+ always provide extra legroom, which it does.
Post #2 doesn't tally; maybe the E+ was less extra legroom on SFO-DEN than the earlier flight? Or perhaps SFO-DEN was a United Express RJ, with possibly no E+ (a CRJ200?). In which case you should contact United and ask for a refund of your E+ fee. I don't know (as I don't work for United) but I'm just thinking for any plausible explanation.
I'm fairly certain it was a 737 and I know positively we paid extra for E+. I will contact United requesting a refund. Thanks.
UA does not refund for E+, especially if you had an E+ seat.
Ahh, the 737. Not all 737s have had the E+ refit yet. They come from the Continental side of the merger and about 15-20% are still awaiting refit. On those planes the only E+ are the bulkhead and exit rows, and there are of course very few of those seats.
It's possible that the plane scheduled to operate your flight did have E+ but was then swapped at the last minute for a non E+ aircraft. If that's the case then you should most definitely get a refund of your E+ fee.Edited: 10:09 am, March 27, 2013
#7 -- On seat selection I viewed E+ seats and paid the extra. We've flown United E+ before on more than one type of plane. The seats we had were not E+ sized.
#8 -- I think the substitution of another plane is probably what happened -- no, we didn't have bulkhead or exit row seats -- so I will contact United about a refund.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
This just happened to me from LAS to DEN. Some of the Continental 737's have not been configured with E+. I submitted an E+ refund since they changed the plane from my time of booking to when I flew.
