We have reviewed Delta Airlines Premium Economy on their new Airbus A350s and have found it to be a very decent product with a 7″ recline compared to American Airlines 6″ recline in their Premium economy seats.
Of course, there is no flatbed, so Premium Economy cannot be compared to Delta in Business Class, particularly for overnight flights where the flat-bed concept maximises it’s value, enabling some level of sleep.
God Save The Points has highlighted an amazing fare of $597 roundtrip in Premium Economy between Chicago, Boston, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Denver, San Diego, Baltimore and Austin flying over to Beijing and back.
The price of Premium Economy is coming in less than coach so it is a great way to try out this new product. This fare is available through to the end of April, just make sure that the plane you are flying on is the A350 and that you are travelling in Premium Economy rather than Comfort+ which is not the full Premium Economy offering.
Crucially you want to be sure you’re flying on the Airbus A350 to get premium economy, you do not want to connect through Seattle where there’s only extra legroom coach (‘Comfort+’) offered.
