Qantas adds to Premium Economy

PREMIUM ECONOMY is definitely in vogue with Qantas announcing that it will retrofit six two-class Boeing 747s to include a 40-seat section on the Sydney – Tokyo route from October 2010 and Frankfurt from February next year.  It is currently offered on Bangkok, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Singapore.  Customers enjoy priority check-in, dedicated cabin crew, an additional baggage allowance and priority boarding and disembarkation.  They also gain a nine-inch seat recline and up to 40-inch seat pitch with extra wide 19.5-inch Recaro seats, their own menu and various other accruements. www.qantas.com.au
