Back in April I wrote about American putting international widebodies on some Hawaii routes.
Earlier today I noted that some of those planes are being retrofitted with premium economy. This is now noted on American’s premium economy web page.
American Airlines shared some details of their new premium economy service to Hawaii. Premium economy won’t just be a better seat (similar to domestic first class, with a foot bar or foot rest) but will include meal service as well as free cocktails, beer and wine plus pillow and blanket.
Routes that will receive Boeing 777-200 service with premium economy:
- Dallas – Honolulu
- Dallas – Maui
- Dallas – Kona (effective June 7, 2018)
- Los Angeles – Honolulu (only December 15, 2017 – January 7, 2018)
There are still no awards or upgrades for premium economy. Elites receive upgrades to first class (i.e. fully flat business class) whether booked in economy or premium economy.
I’m still most keen though on the fully flat seat for Dallas – Hawaii flights. It’s long enough to be worthwhile, and Eastbound these are redeye flights.
