PRE­MIUM ER­ROR

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - INBOX -

Firstly, let me say I en­joy your mag­a­zine and have done so for many years. How­ever, like so much mod­ern jour­nal­ism to­day, lack of knowl­edge and in­for­ma­tion is all too fre­quent. In your June edi­tion, you state that Qan­tas will be “in­tro­duc­ing Pre­mium Econ­omy later this year”. Qan­tas has had this class for many years. Bernard Be­ston, Aus­tralia

BUSI­NESS TRAV­ELLER ASIA-PA­CIFIC RE­SPONDS: Thank you for get­ting in touch and glad to hear you en­joy Busi­ness Trav­eller Asia Pa­cific.

You’re ab­so­lutely right, of course, Qan­tas in­tro­duced a pre­mium econ­omy class back in 2008 on its B747.

In our Snap­shot fea­ture in the June is­sue, what we meant to re­fer to was the new Qan­tas pre­mium econ­omy prod­uct sched­uled to launch on the car­rier’s B787-9 Dream­liner in De­cem­ber. But as you cor­rectly point out, this was not made clear in the ar­ti­cle.

Apolo­gies for this dis­crep­ancy, un­for­tu­nately mis­takes do some­times slip through but we always ap­pre­ci­ate our ea­gle-eyed read­ers keep­ing us on our toes!
