TG 747 Premium Eco = Biz Class?

Mon May 15, 2006 12:46 pm

I checked some availability in november from ARN to BKK with TG and premium economy was very cheap, it says seated in the business cabin but sold as
premium economy???

Are all TG 747s retrofitted with new C or is it the stone age model without footrests?

Thanks,

CFM56

AFAIK TG only has premium economy on the A340-500 that serve the LAX and JFK nonstops. None on their 747s or A340-600s.

For CPH and ARN, they sell Business cabin as premium eco and First cabin as Business. The aircraft is an intermediate version, which has PTV and legrest in Business and flatbed in First class.

So far, 10 out of 18 747-400 are equipped with the new First suites and lie-flat bed in Business.

It used to be 7441 but now is 7442 as spk said. Good value for money. C is even better with the flatbed F seats.

In other words, it's a steal! I'm booking it for me and the wife.
Half the price for SK economy extra!
