Singapore Airlines introduced it’s Premium Economy Seats in 2015 and they’ve finally made their way to some flights departing the US. As we post this (March 9, 2016) there’s an enticing sale on Premium Economy seats on dates that the airline flies newly re-configured A380 aircraft from New York JFK airport (Be aware that some dates don’t offer the new seats as there are some planes still without Premium Economy.)
Is This Just a Singapore Airlines Economy Seat With Legroom?
Not at all. The upgrade from the further-back Singapore Airlines economy seats is at least impressive to look at. Showing off it’s legroom, width and premium perks, this premium economy offering was on display here in New York a few months ago. We were there to catch a glimpse…
The List of Premium Economy Perks
Greater Recline than in Singapore Airlines Economy seats (8″)
Wider Seats (Up to 19.5″)
Extending Leg/Calf rest
Larger 13.3″ Personal TV. Larger than 11.1″ TV in Singapore Airlines Economy Cabin.
USB + Standard Power Ports
Enhanced Food + Drink Menu
Priority Baggage, Boarding + Service
Not That We’re Trying to Sell You Anything…
If photos of display seats don’t persuade you to upgrade, how about a super glossy, airline-produced video? We could maybe do without the song.

We can’t even bring ourselves to call anything domestic in the US “Premium Economy”. American will be the first to have something similar on long-haul: http://modhop.com/american-airlines-premium-economy-will-soon-be-a-thing-finally/
