Reply To: Since when did AA’s main cabin extra become a recognised premium ‘cabin’?

Back to Forum


Looks to me like AA speaketh from both ides of their mouth. To the taxman, playing down the product to ensure it is considered economy and to the public playing it up for it to be recognised as a premium economy product.

It does beg the question ‘what constitutes a premium cabin’ from an APD perspective? Meals? seat? legroom? dedicated toilets? curtain? I note that Lufthansa have chosen not to separate cabin / curtain – were there any tax reasons for this?
