American Airlines has expanded its offerings to provide travelers a decent Premium Economy product, available on international flights and on select flights to Hawaii, ideal for leisure travellers, but which planes have Premium Economy on and which don’t?

American Airlines say: “Premium Economy demonstrates our commitment to create a world-class experience and gives our customers more options when flying with us,” said Alison Taylor, senior vice president, Global Sales. “With added amenities and more room, it’s perfect for customers who want a little extra on their longer flights.”

American Airlines first introduced the product with the airline’s brand new Boeing 787-9 in 2016, following up with a full launch in 2017. American currently offers Premium Economy on its 777-300s, 787-9s, A330-200s, and on select 777-200s flying internationally and to Hawaii, and expects its 787-8s to receive Premium Economy in the coming years. Premium Economy is located behind Flagship Business or First, depending on the route.

There are a number of benefits to passengers who choose the Premium Economy option. They’ll enjoy spacious seating, with wider seats, more legroom, adjustable head and foot rests, and extra recline. Premium Economy passengers also receive elevated meals with complimentary beer, wine, and spirits, exclusive amenity kits, and pillows and blankets designed by sleep technology company Casper. Other in-flight perks include Wi-Fi capabilities and an entertainment library that includes hundreds of free movies, TV shows, music selections, and games, complete with a pair of noise-reducing headphones.

Prior to boarding, Premium Economy passengers receive Priority privileges that make it easier to check-in, go through security, and board. Additionally, Premium Economy passengers get priority bag handling.
