Supplier: American Airlines
Location: United States
American Airlines was the first U.S. airline to introduce the Premium Economy experience three years ago, and once again it is leading the industry by being the first U.S. airline to finish installing Premium Economy seats on its widebody fleet. Customers who choose American have access to 3,025 Premium Economy seats — more than the other U.S. carriers combined.
Located between Flagship Business and Main Cabin on long-haul international flights and behind Flagship First on select flights to Hawaii and Alaska, Premium Economy is available on American’s 124 Boeing 787s and 777s and Airbus A330-200s. Premium Economy guests have more legroom, wider seats, extra recline, extendable foot rests and an elevated onboard dining experience compared to Main Cabin.
When traveling in Premium Economy, customers can relax with a Casper day blanket and lumbar pillow, enjoy a premium amenity kit and a chef-inspired meal with wines selected by master sommelier Bobby Stuckey. On the ground, customers receive two free checked bags and priority benefits when checking in, going through security and boarding.
The number of Premium Economy seats will continue to increase next year, by more than 10%, as American takes delivery of 12 new 787-8s.
