Increasing number of premium economy seats

Major airlines are increasing the number of premium economy seats in aircraft owing to their increasing popularity as an alternative to first class and business class seats. The premium economy class has been designed as a class between the first and business class to bridge the gap between the sardine style economy experience and the opulence of the business class. It offers wider seats, more legroom and finer dining and is made for travellers who are unable to afford business class.

The premium economy class is major attraction for passengers as it is less expensive than business class and more comfortable than economy class. This has increased the rate of air travel as passengers wish to fly in comfort at the minimum cost. Thus, air traffic will increase, which will demand more aircraft and subsequently a greater number of aircraft seats.

Major airlines offer some level of premium service; Qatar Airways (Qatar), Ethihad (UAE), and Emirates (UAE). However, Emirates has announced a new premium class to be rolled out by December 2022. On the other hand, Singapore Airlines had initially wiped out first class Cabins until October 2021 and later resumed the services from March 2022 along with newly added premium economy seats. These changes reflect a shift in trends that place business as the new first class and the premium economy as the new business class.
