Review: British Airways Premium Economy

by James Wilkinson

What to expect in British Airways’ World Traveller Plus cabin on the Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A380.

British Airways’ flights to Singapore and London from Sydney all feature the airline’s current generation World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabin, which has been a winner since the airline introduced the Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A380 to the fleet.

The seats have a pitch of 38 inches, are 18.5 inches wide and offer a greater recline than what you can expect in economy, while when it comes to entertainment, you’ll get a 10.6-inch personal touch screen TV and noise-cancelling headphones.

If you want to bring your own device, you can power it up through USB ports and 110v AC power sockets.

On the dining front, it’s a choice of three main courses, matched with premium Australian and European wines. When you are ready to doze off, you’ll get a soft fleece blanket a pillow, ideal for the overnight flights to London and the way home from Singapore.
