Premium Economy Class

As a class between economy and business class, some airlines have been offering a new class, Premium Economy, for some time. For a price that is also settled between economy and business class rates, this class usually offers more legroom, somewhat wider seats and, depending on the airline, a somewhat superior service. Not every airline calls this class premium economy, Eurowings calls it simply Best, British Airways calles it World Traveler Plus and KLM Economy Comfort.

AMARO Travel has listed for you which airlines offer this premium economy class, which term it uses to refer to this class, and which seat distance you can expect. The seat distances vary according to the type of aircraft used.
