British Airways uses either a B747 or a B777 (you can access the seat maps here). In these planes the Premium Economy cabin has a 2-4-2 configuration, featuring a slightly wider and more reclinable seat than Economy class.

Booking example:

Several OTAs show plenty of availability for departures in May/June. For example, a screenshot from Kayak for a June booking:

For those looking to use a travel agent for the booking, here is the fare construction from ItaSoftware:

Mileage accrual:

Crediting these flights to any of the One World member airlines, or to Alaska Airlines (BAEC partner) will earn you a total of 7342 miles (excluding elite bonuses).

 

Conclusion

Good price for Premium Economy for a medium-haul flight. You’ll be traveling in a smaller, less densely populated cabin for about USD 100-150 more than in Economy (that’s good). The only drawbacks I can think of are BA’s signature “hit and miss” inconsistent service and having to transfer in Heathrow, a traveler’s nightmare.

    Booked BA Premium Economy for HAM-JFK-HAM via LHR in February (flights in April) for 670 Euros (700 USD) – less than 100 Euros more per flight compared to Economy. (Now it’s around 1150 Euros…)

    You’re a bit late with this. it was €525 last week.

    Abu Dhabi was €517

  • CV3V

    Business Class from LHR to TLL for about £230 in November, book with BA using codeshare on Finnair A350 seems a better spend, just short of 8000 avios (give or take) and 200 tier points.

    For above article, if transfers are all within LHR T5 (which they are) then no big deal, much easier than US airports.
