My company travel policy doesn’t allow for Business Class…

If your company’s travel policy doesn’t allow for Business Class, travelling in Economy Class with Cathay Pacific still has its benefits. The Hong Kong flagship airline has revolutionised its Premium Economy and Economy Class travel experience so it’s better than ever.

Settle in to the spacious seat in Premium Economy, which has a generous recline and expanded legroom. A larger table makes working and dining even easier. The increased baggage allowance means you can pack even more. Premium Economy Class is a total enhancement from the Economy Class experience. It is designed to give more comfort, space and personal attention throughout the entire journey with dedicated check-in counters, and priority boarding.

The seats in Economy Class have been redesigned with a cradle mechanism that offers more living space and greater recline (6 inches, to be precise). This gives you more space around the shin area when the passenger in front of you reclines, but also allows for a relaxing sleep – especially as the headrests now come with side wings that are adjustable in four different ways, giving maximum support for the head and neck.
