Premium Economy Priority Check In | Cathay Pacific

Before You Fly

Before you board, you’ll appreciate dedicated check-in counters and priority boarding at the gate. You’ll also be able to pack more – or bring more home – with an increased baggage allowance: from 20kg to 25kg (weight system) or two pieces of baggage from 23 kg to 25kg each (piece system).



Relax in a Wider Seat

Our Premium Economy Class cabin is a spacious, cozy and private cabin of 26 to 34 seats. There’s more room between your seat and the seat in front of you, 8 inches of recline to make resting and sleeping more comfortable, and the headrest has 4-way movement for excellent support of your head and neck. Front-row seats have a legrest, and other seats have a 3-position footrest, which help you find a variety of positions to make your flights as enjoyable as possible.

A World of Entertainment

For entertainment, there are hundreds of selections on your StudioCX inflight entertainment system. Plus, you can use the multi-port connector to stream movies and music from your iPod, iPhone or iPad* to your 10.6-inch touch-screen Personal TV – and a noise-cancelling headset will enhance your enjoyment.



Work and Dine in a Cozy Environment

A larger meal table makes working and dining more of a pleasure, and a cocktail table provides more legroom during the meal service. There is extra storage space for all those personal items you’d like to keep close at hand.
