    I am looking to book a long haul international round trip for two adults and a lap child using Aeroplan miles on United. Since we'll have an infant with us we'd prefer the bulkhead but it appears that those seats are only available via Economy Plus.

    Is there a way to get Economy Plus seats using Aeroplan miles? Can we pay for them via United after booking?

    Thanks.

    I believe you can. You could always cancel within 24 hours if it doesn't work for some reason. Let us know what you find!

    Economy Plus is considered an enhanced seating option, not a separate cabin. So while you can't use miles for E+ directly, if you redeem for economy you can pay for the premium seats.

    If you have to change or cancel your tickets, however, United likely won't refund the seat fees, so that's something to be aware of.
