Premium economy

Enjoy an enhanced in-flight experience with World Traveller Plus, our premium economy cabin, offering more privacy, space and comfort in a smaller, secluded cabin.

World Traveller Plus - selected international flights

World Traveller Plus is our premium economy service, a more comfortable, relaxing experience on longer routes and proof that a premium service doesn't have to break the bank:

wider seats and more legroom
small, intimate cabins with expert, attentive service
delicious meals and full bar service
personal entertainment system with noise-reducing headphones
larger free baggage allowance
board ahead of economy passengers with priority boarding

Putting the premium in economy

The World Traveller Plus cabin features a smaller number of rows for a more intimate and exclusive experience but you'll find the small cabin big on space and big on features, including:
a wider seat with greater recline, lumbar support, head rest and foot rest
extra leg room to stretch out, sit back and relax, sleep or work
comfy cushion, blanket and amenity kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, flight socks and eye mask
power supply for laptops and other electronic devices - guide to in-seat power (pdf, 181kb, English only)
so that you can be prepared for your journey please be advised that a few aircraft may require the use of an inflight adaptor. Adaptors may not always be available on-board for purchase

Style upgrade

The World Traveller Plus experience is getting a makeover. We're giving the cabin an elegant new interior, luxurious seats with greater recline, 60% larger flat entertainment screen, personal in-seat power supply and more.
The new cabin is available now on our newest aircraft; A380, Boeing 787, Boeing 777-300ER and we're busy refurbishing many Boeing 777-200 and 767 aircraft to the same standard.

Delicious meals and a full bar service

There's plenty of 'plus' in your World Traveller Plus menu, featuring a delicious assortment of fine foods designed to keep your taste buds entertained throughout the flight:
three-course meals crafted to perfectly match the time and duration of your flight
a premium dining experience, featuring high-quality ingredients, fine china and linen napkins
a wide range of special meal alternatives to suit your dietary needs
complimentary bar service, hot drinks, juices and water (on some very short flights, a full bar service is not always available)

Entertainment at your fingertips

A whole world of entertainment awaits you with:
hundreds of the latest films, documentaries, television, music, audio books and games
personal flat screen and noise-reducing headphones
on-demand service that lets you choose what you want, when you want it, on most flights

Flexible baggage options

With World Traveller Plus' generous and flexible baggage allowances, it doesn't matter if you're travelling light or packing for an extended stay.
You can take two bags with you on board - one full-sized cabin bag plus a laptop or handbag – and check up to two bags into the hold - double the allowance for most economy services.
Some routes and ticket types come with an even greater allowance, while extra baggage can be carried for a fee.
