Continental Will Offer Economy Plus

You may have read this elsewhere already, but for the record:  United has decided to keep Economy Plus in its aircraft and will roll it out to all Continental planes beginning in 2012.  Some larger regional aircraft will also feature the product with additional legroom.

I think that every Continental frequent traveler has eyes welled with tears right now, as Continental’s major drawback has been the lack of seats with extra legroom.  I wouldn’t be shocked if they lose a row or two of first class to put in these seats, but let’s be honest — you weren’t getting that upgrade.
