For my first flight on the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, I decided to treat myself to a Premium Economy ticket one way to compare value and experience. This particular flight was on Poland’s national carrier, LOT Airlines, which has direct flights from New York, Chicago, and Toronto to Warsaw, a major hub for subsequent flights to Eastern Europe and Asia. I paid an additional $400 for the one-way Premium upgrade. A great feature of LOT is that you can further upgrade your ticket to the next level up through an online auction. The minimum bid to upgrade to Business was $300 and you cannot upgrade fares that are deeply discounted (e.g. their “Crazy Wednesday” fare).
The new Dreamliner’s have three seating options – Economy, Premium Economy (normally considered Business class), and Business (normally considered First Class).
