First Class And Premier Economy Airliner

Thu Oct 02, 2003 12:48 am

Based on the assumption that the Business Class passenger wants to really travel First Class at a Business Class price, and similarly the Economy Class passenger wants to really travel Premier Economy at Economy Class price, what Airliner would suit a First Class and Premier Economy Class configuration for flights of greater than say 9 hours?

IMHO, there would probably be a mix of pax with differing priorities. I know I'd LOVE it if all long-haul flights offered the choice of a Premier Economy section, a la BA and Virgin... All I want really is a little more room...

What about B757 with 2-3 seating in Premier Economy and 2-1 in First?

Range would probably not be very good with a B752, so B767 with 2-2-2 in premier economy and 2-2 in first, would it work?
