In addition, Premium Economy Class passengers are treated to a dedicated check-in line, priority baggage handling, and an increased baggage allowance of 77 lbs. Inside the modern cabins, passengers will find full leather finishing, a calf-rest and foot-bar for every seat, an individual in-seat power supply, two USB ports, a personal in-seat reading light, a cocktail table and more storage space for personal items.
Beginning Oct. 23, 2016, Premium Economy Class will be featured on two daily flights from San Francisco (SFO) with the addition of the A350-900 nonstop service to Singapore, and on two daily flights from LAX with the launch of the Los Angeles-Seoul-Singapore route operated with B777-300ER aircraft.
