Alternative To Business Class

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

Unless your company will be paying for your business class seat, most travelers are forced to check out cheap travel options, including cheap airplane tickets and discount travel deals in deciding how best to fly to their destinations.

The popularity of business class has grown significantly in recent years because of the advent of lie flat seating in business cabins. Unfortunately its price remains out of the reach of most passengers.

Another trend though is also rising in popularity: premium economy.
Many airlines that fly internationally now offer a dedicated cabin more luxurious than economy at a price significantly cheaper than business class. Some travelers opt to fly premium economy because the relative comfort of the cabins can make the difference between arriving jetlagged and out of sorts vs. arriving refreshed and ready to greet the day.

Premium economy cabins from various airlines offer similar amenities including:

• A dedicated check-in line and priority boarding.
• Free checked baggage allowances.
• Larger, more comfortable seats with enhanced legroom and adjustable headrests.
• An amenity kit with earplugs, toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and an eye mask.
• Complimentary newspapers and bar service.
• Enhanced meal choices often served on fine china.
• On-demand personal video entertainment featuring television programming, movies, games, audio books and music.
• Power outlets for laptops and mobile devices.

The following are some of the airlines who offer a separate premium economy cabins on international flights:

• Air New Zealand
• British Airways
• Virgin Atlantic
• Air France
• Cathay Pacific
• Qantas
• Thai Airways
• Virgin Australia

The upcharge for premium economy seats varies by airline, route, as well as other factors. The following are some examples of the differences:

• Air New Zealand charges more than four times the price of an economy ticket for business class seat, yet only a little more than double for premium economy.

• Qantas charges between seven to eight times as much for a business class seat vs. about 150 percent more for premium economy compared to coach.

• Virgin Atlantic charges about 4 and ½ times more for a business class seat, but only about 50 percent more for premium economy.
