Currently, Singapore is not letting any tourists enter the country without a good reason and without fulfilling a 2-week quarantine. We do not know until when these regulations will be kept, so we recommend booking for as late as possible.
Compared to the regular economy class, especially the baggage allowance is very generous. You can bring 2 bags, up to 23kg each. British Airways or its Oneworld partner Iberia will first fly you from Spain to London Heathrow. This first segment of your itinerary will be in standard economy class, just like the last segment from the UK back to Spain. The flights from and to Singapore are direct flights in premium economy.
British Airways Premium Economy
To describe it in one sentence: far better than economy but also far away from business class. That’s what premium economy normally is, and this is also valid for British Airways’ product.
You shouldn’t hope for lie-flat seat or anything similar, but you will have much more space than you would have had in coach class. In addition to the more reasonable baggage allowance, you can also choose between two main courses from business class. Unfortunately, you won’t have access to the lounge, but you will enjoy other perks such as priority boarding and a small amenity kit.
Here’s a flight report that’ll give you a better idea of the premium economy class on board of an A380: British Airways A380 World Traveller Plus+

Tickets for the segments in economy class will be issued in booking class K, the ones for premium economy class flights in booking class T.
