US travel site to book Premium Economy class

US travel site to book Premium Economy class

Greetings everyone!

Nowadays I only book my flights online, and usually I use the airline site (I am a BA FF) or Expedia. However, I cannot book premium economy flights there, or any other site I know.

Is there any reliable US site where we have an option to book Prem. Econ. class, just like businees or first?...

(I am only interested in US sites or international sites using USD as base currency).

Many thanks in advance for all replies!

I must be really out of the loop BUT I don't even know a USA airline that offers "premium economy" seats. What are they?

They are asking more along the lines of which online TAs (Travelocity, Expedia et al) allow you to select premium economy.

What's interesting is expedia.co.uk does have a premium economy option whereas expedia.com doesn't!

As for what premium economy is:

The only US airline with a premium econ. class is United. However, you cannot book that class as a fare bucket.

But as the title stated, I am looking for a US site, not for a US airline.

Any other idea?...

Thanks anyway!!!

Tuga,

Try BA.com,

Book economy and as you get to the end of the process but before paying they invite you to upgrade one or both legs to WT+. It may not be in $$ but worth a try.

Try BA.com

___________

The "en_us" BA.com will price up in dollars, but starting a ticket outside the US and it will bill you in currency of originating country. e.g. go to "en_us" and start a ticket in Amsterdam and it'll tell you it is pricing the ticket in Euros.

Correct. I do not see a problem.

I also found that BA.com has Prem economy on the drop down tab for booking class.

Thanks, everyone!

Yes, BA.com is an option, but will it be the only one? My point was to find a US site (like expedia.co.uk) with Prem.Econ. option, but it seems that there isnt one.

Any other ideas on this?...

How can I find a cheap Prem.Econ. fare quoted in USD?...

The only online travel booking site I've found that allows pax to book in Premium Economy is expedia.co.uk. Otherwise, you'll have to use the airline's website and book directly.
