I wouldn't be surprised, since the two Korean majors seem to copy each other quite often. If they do, I hope they follow the JAL route and keep Y seat pitch at 34" and make PY 42".

Premium economy seems to be the wave of the future. We are taking a med cruise this spring and I have been pricing air fares. Oddly enough often I saw cheaper business class fares than premium.

Premium Economy is the new business class, and business class is the new first.
