American Airlines will start offering Premium Economy cabins across its international fleet beginning late 2016. Called the Main Cabin Extra, the seats will be positioned directly behind business class and will offer passengers more space and leg room compared to the economy class. Main Cabin Extra travelers will also receive priority check-in and boarding, amenity kits, enhanced in-flight F&B service and noise-cancelling headphones. It will initially be installed on its fleet of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, as well as the airline’s new fleet of Airbus A350s, and will be retro-fitted on all B777s, B787-8s and A330S over the next three years.
