While addressing the press conference Mr David Lau (General manager, India for Singapore Airlines) repeatedly stressed that the focus was not on how many inches extra were available but the experience that one got while flying Singapore Airlines.

Priority boarding and baggage is avail for premium economy- the order being suites, first, business, premium economy and economy. He was quick to add that all customers were catered to according to the finest traditions of Singapore Airlines, irrespective of the class you were flying. To begin with the premium economy is available only on evening and night flights from Delhi and Mumbai.

He mentioned that they are noticing a new pattern of flying in premium economy. While the whole family or groups tend to fly either business or economy, he said passengers would split up in premium economy. He mentioned an instance when the family flied economy but they put their parents in premium economy as a mark of gratitude.
