    Never flew QF Premium Economy, but I hear great things about Virgin Australia's Premium Economy product. How much is the price difference between Qantas and Virgin Australia?

    I can second Virgin Australia Premium Economy. Flew Sydney to LAX & back in Virgin Premium economy last year and couldn't fault them at all. Decent leg room, good recline & the Virgin Aus staff are awesome.
    As for Qantas I have flown with them a whole bunch of times however never Premium Economy. Pretty hard to fault Qantas as well though I have had 1 or 2 issues with them over the years. Mostly domestic flights though.
    Also I personally prefer the 777 to the A380 which also ticks another box for Virgin

    It's an Alaska points trip, so Qantas is the partner carrier. On Qantas, paying cash, the price differential between economy and premier is shockingly large, yet with points it's almost nothing, even going to business (but the biz upgrade is far more scarce) doesn't involve a helluva lot of extra points. (This is all Q international not domestic.)

    Have you checked award space on Cathay? Yeah, Business Class fares between the States and Australia are very expensive.
