Aren't these premium economy seating areas, at least in the USA, registered trademarks owned by their respective airlines? And if so, how should they be written in this article? (talk) 21:41, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Virgin Atlantic[edit]

The previous edit contained this section on Virgin Atlantic:

'Virgin Atlantic provide arguably the most pleasant Premium Economy, with purple leather seats, a separate cabin, dedicated cabin crew, pre-flight champagne and after dinner liqueurs. Also, Virgin offer amenities kits premium to those of the Economy Class.'

I'm not sure this looks very encyclopaedic / demonstrates WP:NPOV, so I've parked it here for now. For instance, on a purely personal note, I fly Premium Economy for business purposes, so I tend to choose BA, as VS have until recently not provided laptop power in their Premium Economy cabins, which matters to me somewhat more than seat colour ... but to say BA are the best would probably not be Neutral Point of View;-).Bill Martin 21:37, 3 July 2007 (UTC)


Considering adding value to airline data by tabulating information, draft below with 1 proof-of-concept entry:

Name ICAO IATA Class Name Type Legroom Rows Power
British Airways BAW BA World Traveller Plus Comprehensive 37" -1 Yes

Nice idea. I suggest the ICAO/IATA codes are redundant. "Legroom" should be "pitch". How about adding the Class of Service Codes used, too?
Name Class Name CoSC Type Seat Pitch Rows Power
Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy W,K Comprehensive 37" varies varies
