More Air Canada services on Lufthansa RTW

3 Feb 2016

If you’re thinking of travelling round the world, one of the airline’s we’d recommend is Lufthansa, based in Germany.  They have a great-value product and they’ve recently made some changes to their Premium Economy fare that make it even better.

In the past, passengers travelling on this ticket between Australia and Canada have had to take Air New Zealand via Auckland.  Air New Zealand are an excellent airline and still a good choice, but Air Canada has now also been put into the mix and for only an extra $300 you can take the Sydney-Vancouver route direct.  Brisbane-Vancouver comes online from the 3rd of June this year.

Air Canada’s Premium Economy features wider seats than in the Economy cabin with more recline.  You’ll get seven inches more legroom, experience a larger screen at your seat with hundreds of hours of on-demand entertainment, and you’ll be able to recharge your devices using your personal power outlet.  Other extras include two free checked bags, premium meal service, complimentary wine & spirits, hot towel service, pillow and amenity kit.  At the airport, there will be priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling for you.
