Footrests allow you to make yourself comfortable…. you will find a central armrest in the middle and a huge fold-out table and a cocktail table …. the 12” screens do invite you to enjoy the entertainment program …. And the backrest …. it can be put back a lot more than in economy and yes – falling asleep works easily!

What is the difference between Economy Class and Premium Economy Class?
The biggest difference between Austrian Airlines Economy Class and Austrian Airlines Premium Economy Class is the seat distance to the vehicle in front. This has consistently increased by 10 – 15 cm in all airlines and is around 95 cm in this “intermediate class”.
