- What is Premium Economy?
Some airline carriers offer Premium Economy, a separate class of seating and service that differs from standard Economy. Premium Economy is found mostly on international flights and, compared to standard Economy, offers about 5-7 inches of extra legroom as well as additional amenities, which can include:
1-2 extra inches of seat width
2-3 extra inches of seat recline
Adjustable headrests, leg rests, or lumbar support
Larger personal TV screens
Laptop Power Ports

- How much does Premium Economy Cost?
While there are a number of factors that determine airline ticket prices, we priced out a number of trips on each of the airlines offering a Premium Economy service to give you a general idea of cost.
Compared to booking standard Economy for flights over the Atlantic Ocean (i.e. USA – Europe):
1) If you book in advance, Premium Economy is generally 85% more expensive than your standard Economy fare.
2) If you book closer to your departure date, Premium Economy is generally only 35% more expensive than your standard Economy fare. The extra cost can be as low as just 10% more, so remember to ask about Premium Economy if you have a last minute Economy booking.
Compared to booking Economy for flights over the Pacific Ocean (i.e. USA – Asia/Australia):
Premium Economy fares across the Pacific Ocean don't vary quite as much with purchase time; they are generally 95% more expensive than standard Economy fares (yes, almost double).
- When is Premium Economy a good value?
When the extra cost is 10-15% more than standard Economy, we believe this represents a good value for the comfort conscious flier. Also, keep an eye out for day-of-travel upgrade opportunities. If an airline hasn't filled their premium seats ahead of time, they may be offering a discounted upgrade at check-in.
If your employer's travel policy doesn't allow Business Class travel, Premium Economy can be a great choice. You'll have upgraded seats and an "Economy" ticket on your expense report.
- How does Premium Economy compare to Business Class?
A Premium Economy fare is generally 65% less expensive than a Business Class fare. In terms of space and amenities, these two classes are VERY different with Business Class offering up to 50% more legroom, significantly greater recline, more substantial leg rests and headrests, and superior food and wine offerings.
