I got an email the other day announcing the new Singapore Airlines Premium Economy class on select flights. I took a little bit of a look on a website and it looks pretty neat. The seats are bigger, offer more recline, and are in a 2-4-2 cabin
Some of the other features that they offer on Singapore airlines Premium Economy Class
- Earn KrisFlyer and Elite miles at 110% of the actual miles flown
- You can order the “Book the Cook” menu from an onboard chef. It is also served with champagne and a wide range of beverages
- Singapore Airlines Premium Economy class also offers priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling

One downside for me at least is that they do not appear to have published an award chart including Premium Economy yet, so you can’t book Singapore Airlines Premium Economy class with KrisFlyer miles, at least not yet.
Personally, I wouldn’t pay to book it because I don’t like to pay for anything, but assuming that Singapore Airlines Premium Economy class comes with a normal amount of “premium” (like 50% over the Economy award price), I could definitely see something like this as a way to fly with a little more comfort while still stretching your miles. We don’t always need Singapore Suites Class 😀
What about you? Is Premium Economy worth it?
