Travelers on United Airlines might soon see some improvements.

The airline plans to invest more than $500 million to improve seating on its planes, and to create the same look and feel across its fleet.

The airline will add flat-bed seats to first and business class cabins on long-haul aircraft, increase overhead bin space on some jets and add Wi-Fi to other planes.
