Quite a few airlines are now offering a kind of "premium economy" which is better than economy but not as good as business class.
Given the fact that many companies are cutting back on business travel and many economy passengers complain about cramped conditions on long flights, what do you think about the chances for an airline flying with an all-premium economy layout, ie single-class but better than normal economy?
Do you think that an airline that did this would be able to fly profitably in certain markets?

I fly premium tourist class/BR Evergreen Deluxe whenever I can, but i believe fitting the whole plane with these nicer seats would defeat that feeling of being a premium or a more special passenger that these full fare paying passengers want included in the price they paid. Here are some pics of the magnificient BR Deluxe Class on Eva Air:
The only airlines that i know of that have done the FULL premium tourist plane config are Midwest Express Southern Airlines Legend Airlines and ??Pro Air??
