We’ve all longed for an upgrade when faced with a lengthy journey in Economy Class. While it’s a great, value for money service to travel the world, an Economy Class seat is not always the most forgiving when it comes to personal space and comfort. What to do when the price differential to a Business or First Class seat is often dramatically higher?
Thankfully, on some airlines, there is an attractive alternative called Premium Economy. This relatively new in-flight product has become an international trend having taken off in popularity over the last several years.
Separated from the main Economy cabin, this delightful Premium space offers a wider seat along with generous leg room that even the tallest airline guest would appreciate. An enhanced meal and beverage service with hot towel is also offered. Some airlines even extend their preferred services to the airport with priority check-in lines, priority baggage as well as a more generous baggage allowance. Best of all, the price of a Premium Economy seat is at a fraction of the cost of a First or Business Class seat.
