Premium Economy On VS

Wed Nov 07, 2007 11:08 pm

Hi All

Am hoping to fly VS for the first time next year to SFO / LAX.

Aircraft is 747-400 on journey to SFO

On return from LAX will be flying Premium Economy - I have 2 options can fly either 747-400 or A346 (have not been on either of these types yet!!)

Does anyone have preferences as to which (i am tempted to do 747-400 on outbound to SFO and A346 on return)

Are the seats for the premium economy the same on both.

Also what do you get for the extra money? Seat pitch etc..

Any help greatfully appreciated.

Thanks
The best way forwards is upwards!

In Your position I would choose the A346, as you'll already fly the 744 to SFO.

However, some of the 744's are configured with a couple PE seats on the upper deck (but I think the high-density one without PE on upperdeck flies the LAX route). If you can guarantee, that the flight will have PE seats on the upperdeck and you can guarantee that you will get one of those, choose that, but otherwise, choose the A346.

I think the seats are the same, but I know the A346 will have the same or better.

No; the 346's have the "new" Premium Economy cabin, which knocks the socks off the 744 version.

Take a look at http://alotmorespace.com - a Premium Economy mini-site.

Correct; VS19/20.

Both VS7/8, 23/24 are A346 routes with the current timetable.
