The schlep from the West Coast over to Europe is long, so it makes sense that you don’t want to do it in economy. But with business class pricing through the roof, sometimes a better solution is springing for premium economy. With more recline and better legroom, premium economy provides a happy middle ground for those long-haul flights.

Better yet, we’ve found premium economy routes for just $1,100 from the West Coast all the way to Europe.

Let’s take a look!

Fare Deal — Details

If there is a route you’re looking to book, you’ll want to act quickly. We don’t expect this pricing to last.

  • Class: Premium economy

  • Dates: May to June 2024, September to December 2024
  • Rates: As low as $1,100 round-trip

These flights are operated by Condor, whose premium economy seats feature some of the best legroom and recline around. Even better, both airlines are full-service, which means you’ll be able to take a carry-on as well as check up to 55 pounds of luggage.
