Premium Economy Class was perfect for someone like me who has to travel between LA and AKL every month but doesn't want to pay the price to spread out in business class. The leg room is spacious leaving enough work space so that I can work on my lap top without disturbing the person next to me - coach seating has become so cramped on airlines that you tend to overlap each other). Plus the blankets were comfortable and there were extra pillows for my flight - it was great! Some over weight people may find the seat width a little small for premium economy (Qantas Premium Economy seems a little larger) but for a normal sized woman it is perfect.



Review:   4 January 2008

Aircraft:  Boeing 747-400

Name:   A Neilson    (UK)

Position:  Middle

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  Large

Recommended :  Yes

Comfort Score :  7/10

Good  Legroom space

Not sure why complaints about legroom. I'm 6'2" and found it comfortable and more than adequate compared with other airlines. Padding was very good too and was able to sleep comfortably. Did have my girlfriend in the next seat though so able to sprawl a bit. Might not be as good if between two strangers.

Review:   27 December 2007

Aircraft:  Boeing 747-400

Name:   N Hail

Position:  Middle

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  Medium

Recommended :  Yes

Comfort Score :  2/10

Good  Legroom space

Plenty of room in front to stretch legs. Recline is good allowing you to get a small amount of sleep. The position of the controls for the entertainment system means that its easy to turn them on / off when trying to sleep. It was slightly difficult to get out of the seat when somebody had the aisle seat but not a major problem.

Review:   22 October 2007

Name:  Jim Drevescraft

Position:  Aisle

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  Large

Recommended :  Yes

Comfort Score :  2/10

Poor  Legroom space

It seems that adding the Pacific Premium economy cabin has been done at the expense of the passengers in regular economy.

Review:   22 October 2007

Aircraft:  Boeing 747-400

Name:  Pam Peters

Position:  Window

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  Small

Recommended :  No

Comfort Score :  3/10

Poor  Legroom space

We were very disappointed at the cramped condition and difficulty in reaching the aisle. Once the seat in front had reclined it was very crowded and the tv screen was difficult to focus on. Compared with travelling on Air New Zealand 10 year's ago to London we would not fly economy class with this airline again.

Name:  Roger Prentis

Position:  Aisle

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  Medium

Recommended :  Yes

Comfort Score :  8/10

Excellent  Legroom space

Aisle seats 61C and 48C on LHR - HKG return in March & April were surprisingly comfortable for a long 13 hour flight, especially for the price. Leg room at 34" seat pitch was  good. I would fly Air NZ again on this route.

Position:  Aisle

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  X-large

Recommended :  Maybe

Comfort Score :  8/10

Good  Legroom space

As a big person I chose the exit aisle seat for leg room, however the seat width is not as good as other seats due to the meal tray which is stored in the armrest.
