Cathay Pacific is putting a few Southeast Asia destinations on sales in Premium Economy class. We have flown Cathay Pacific Premium Economy product a few times between New York and Hong Kong and the consensus among the team is its a pretty good Premium Economy product.

ITA will price this between $1,402 and about $1,500 depending on the city pair. However, using those dates on Priceline should be $50 – $100 cheaper.
