Poll Results In: Is It Worth Upgrading to Economy Plus?

Screen Shot 2014-02-09 at 3.20.20 AMA little over a week ago I wrote a post asking Is It Worth Upgrading to Economy Plus.

For me the answer is no if I have to pay for the upgrade. I’d gladly take a free upgrade but to pay for a little more space, I just don’t see the value. I would much prefer to use valuable funds to pay for things during the trip.

However, I can see some cases where paying for E+ can be worth it. If you’re on the taller side then upgrading might be well worth it to get extra space and save your knees from the seat in front of you. I could also see some people finding E+ a decent option for very long flights.

Kim and I have never flown in E+ and don’t really think it is worth the extra expense. With Lucas now needing his own seat, we also gain space (when sitting 3 across) from his seat.

After my original post, I had a variety of answers in the comments. I also had an interesting response om Twitter from the youngest American to visit every country in the world.

Is It Worth Upgrading To Economy Plus

On Thursday evening¬†we’ll be flying on our second trip of 2014. We’re heading back to Europe on another short trip thanks to the Wideroe mistake fare back in November.

We took a trip to Norway in January and this time we will be flying into Milan. However, we won’t be staying there too long. (More details to follow in a future post.)

The cost for each of us to fly to Milan was a real bargain. The last time we got in on a deal this cheap was when Kim and I flew to Copenhagen for $151.50 (each) round trip. That trip was almost 3 years ago to the day!
