What does Premium Economy offer?

The premium economy class differs from the well-known economy class by a larger seat pitch and seats with their own armrests and footrests. There is also a maximum of 2 – 4 – 2 seating. This allows you to sit at most one seat away from the aisle. In addition, there is a power connection directly at the seat. When it comes to service, just like in business class, you get a welcome drink before take-off, and you can choose your meal from a menu, which is then served on porcelain dishes.

For comfort during the flight, there is an amenity kit with travel accessories (probably a sleeping mask, toothbrush, socks…) and a bottle of water. In addition, there is a 2 x 23 kg baggage allowance, higher mileage credit, etc.

Flights to Seoul

Flights to Korea are unfortunately not as cheap as to China or Southeast Asia, but there are – especially if you are flexible – some bargains that are definitely worth it.

For flights to Seoul, one should usually be prepared to pay between 400€ and 500€ for a good deal. Often there are also bargains in Business Class, especially from LOT.

You should avoid the school holidays, especially the summer holidays. During this period, airfares quickly rise to more than 700€ and partly reach heights of up to 1.000€ for a direct flight in economy. Good deals are not to be expected during this period.

The best time to visit Seoul is from March to May or from September to November. Thanks to comparatively mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine, these months are best suited for tourism.
