It was our first time that we went premium economy. It was so much better. Our flight attendants Benjamin and Peter were extremely helpful and friendly. If I could fault anything it was that the foot rest was too far away for my legs. What a terrible thing to have in a plane ! LOL will be flying this class from now on, just loved it!!

Our flight attendant Beau went over and beyond to make our trip enjoyable. He deserves recognition. Best service we've ever received on a plane. Nothing was too much trouble.
