American Airlines was the first and launched premium economy in May 2017. This means you are guaranteed quite new cabins and seats when travelling with any of the three which tends to provide a better experience.American Airlines Premium Economy 777 Review – Making the BookingI always start my search … [Read more...] about American Airlines Premium Economy 777 Review – Is it Worth Paying Extra?
