| Had the pleasure of flying Premium Economy with Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Washington Dulles on a pleasure trip. I chose Lufthansa based on value for money; the same applies for Premium Economy. A standard economy seat was £500 and PE was £800. The price gap was so reasonable compared to other airlines (particularly BA and Virgin) that I thought I'd opt for the additional comfort. The initial Premium Economy experience doesn't differ from Economy. There are no airport perks, no priority check in etc; however, the substantial difference comes when you embark. The seats are akin to a domestic/pre-lie flat business class seat with a wide chair, leg rest, deeper than normal incline and in seat amenities. As a bonus I also chose an end of aisle seat so I had slightly more leg room, and of course the added bonus of no one inclining in to me! The additional service includes food service on crockery instead of out of cartons, glasses instead of plastic cups, metal cutlery, a menu with meal choices and an arrival drink. All of these are minor touches, however they all add up to enhancing the passenger experience. The amenities kit that comes with the seat is simple and welcomed; an eye mask, a tooth brush, travel socks and a face wipe all I a personalised pouch. Other additions include a blanket and pillow on arrival. The staff weren't dedicated to the seat; however they were friendly, attentive and polite and were more than willing to service your ad hoc needs throughout the flight. The only criticisms are the lack of pre flight benefits, and lack of separation and dedicated facilities from Economy passengers. Overall the seat is a huge improvement on economy and is well worth the extra money given that the cost difference isn't that great.
