The merged United Continental airline has announced that it will invest over half a billion dollars in its onboard product. This will include expanding its premium-class product by adding flat-bed premium seating on 62 long-haul aircraft – to have more flat-bed seats than any other US airline – as well as introducing Economy Plus seating on more than 300 aircraft. There will be bigger overhead lockers, WiFi installed on more than 200 aircraft and wireless video streaming on the airline’s B747-400 aircraft.
