David, what would your prefer, A380 PE or 787? The premium economy cabin on the A380 features 56 seats. I pay no attention to any review where the pax flew 'courtesy of'. interact with our community. Interesting review, thanks, David. Premium Economy sounds and looks terribly uncomfortable. For all the media hype, this QF aircraft is as others say merely this airline partly catching up with some competitors, and failing to match the space that JL (Japan Air Lines) offers in its similar planes.

And the tablet then needs to be slid all the way over to the left to be 'docked' into the corner of the frame. Seats are only being sold in pairs, with prices ranging from AU$4,380 for a pair of economy class seats to AU$13,980 Absolutely best in class at the time.

No it just hasn't been mentioned in the article. PER-LHR non-stop like this? Its We're not fools. Wow. Qantas could fix the PE legroom issue by removing one row of Y from the forward cabin and the distribute the 32inches across PE and the remaining rows of Y. Premium Economy is supposed to be a lot better than economy, nobody here is asking for business class at PE prices, but adequate legroom is an essential part of the PE product offering and this seat or rather the pitch assigned to it by Qantas doesn't deliver.
