Post 1 Premium Economy Class on China United Airlines? Aug 23,07 07:11 AM

Does anyone have any experience with China United Airlines" new Premium Economy Class? If so, can you please share some thoughts?

 

How are the seats in terms of comfort, width & pitch etc.? Also, do you get any other perks comparing to Economy Class passengers?

 

Thanks in advance for your future input and contribution.

 

Regards.

First, let me clarify that I haven"t been on China United"s "Y+ Class", the following is based on my readings and research:

Seat: Slightly wider and more legroom. I think the standard seat pitch onboard China United"s Y Class is 32", so I guess you are looking at 34-36" for Y+ Class. A photo of the new Y+ Class seats is attached above.

Price: I think it is either 40% off the standard First Class fares or 20% off the standard Business Class prices.

Hopefully this helps in some way.

I don"t know if this is still the case. However, last time when I talked to this guy who was working for CUA, he said this Premium Economy class is only available on five selected routes on CUA"s network. I think Beijing Nanyuan-Dalian and Beijing Nanyuan-Qingdao are two of those routes, cannot recall the others. lingam(12/25/07 17:55)

I don"t know if this is the case, but the "Premium Economy" seats featured in the picture looked like a standard traditional first class seat used to be seen onboard many carriers, thus I"d argue it"s at least 4" more than 34-36" as what xiayi stated earlier. However, I only come to such conclusion by looking at the image, and may very well be wrong. lingam(12/25/07 17:55)
