Stay tuned for Part 2 and more on Air France Premium Economy by the end of this year! Like and Subscribe! Awesome videos are coming in 2017! Description: When it comes to fly long haul international flight, sitting in economy class is a pain and business class ticket is simply not affordable. In the recent years, airlines start to introduce a premium economy class that is supposed to fill in between the economy and business class. The cabin experience is advertised to the one similar to domestic first class: more comfortable seats and personal space, decent meal service, and priority perks at the airport. The ticket price of PE is typically 50%-100% markup over the economy, similar to domestic F vs. Y. I fly international long hauls a few times a year, so this summer I wanted to try out the premium economy: is it significantly or marginally better than the regular economy? Am I willing to pay the markup to sit in PE seats in the future? To choose which airline to fly, since I fly Delta a ton but they will not have PE seats until late 2017 on their new a350s, so I figure their SkyTeam partner Air France is a way to go. The major perks over regular economy seats are Sky Priority benefits, better seats, and better meal. Sky Priority gives you quicker check-in, security, boarding and baggage handling. Unfortunately, lounge access is not included unless you are SkyTeam Elite Plus. I like the seat (more videos about it coming in the next parts). The premium economy seats are similar to first class seats on narrow-body jets regarding seat width, length, and armrest (no need to fight for armrest!). While the seat does not recline (rather sliding down as if it reclines), it is comfortable with leg rest extending out and foot rest in front of you. So sleeping is so much easier, and I got a full three hours of sleep without hurting my back and hip too much. The meal was OK. I like the appetizers and desserts a lot. The wine and Champagne are not the best, and they need to do a much better job in cooking the entree (in contrast, Delta's domestic first class meal has much better-cooked entrees, but lack in appetizers and desserts). I like that they provide bottled water (in this flight Evian) before takeoff, just like in domestic first class. The flight attendant distributed travel kit containing a pair of socks, an eye blind, a pair of earplug and earphone protector, and toothbrush-toothpaste combo. The in-flight entertainment system is outdated and not very useful. Not a big deal since I try to sleep most of the time. Stay tuned for Part 2 for more!
