Good day everyone!
Just this week, Untied formally announced their premium economy cabin on a Boeing 777-200. The seats have (supposedly) better IFE, better food, etc. But the WiFi is apparently very slow. The seats feature a base color of purple. It is basically what you would find on any other Premium Economy cabin with little changes here and there. This will first appear on the 777-300ER’s, 787-10, 777-200, and the 767’s they have in their fleet. The seats don’t go officially on sale till later this year, but you can upgrade/pick your seat for premium economy on the aircraft it has it on. I think that this is definitely a step in the right direction. As more and more people want something better but don’t want to pay for business class, more and more airlines will continue to adopt premium economy as it becomes more and more popular. United was the only airline that was a legacy U.S. carrier that had no Premium Economy Class on any aircraft. I can’t wait to see this roll out to all the aircraft eventually and hopefully I will be blue to fly it next year when I go to Frankfurt. Let me know what you think about this below!
