Star Alliance expands round-the-world to premium economy

Fare can be booked for Premium Economy cabins on 11 airlines
The airline alliance Star Alliance has expanded its Round-the-World fares to include travel in the emerging Premium Economy Class. In line with the overall Round-the-World product, it is offered in three mileage bands: 29,000, 34,000 or 39,000 miles.
Putting the mileage levels into perspective, the circumference of the Earth measured at the Equator is approximately 24,900 miles.
The new fare can be booked for travel in the Premium Economy cabins on 11 airlines – Air Canada, Air China, Air New Zealand, ANA, EVA Air, Lufthansa, LOT, SAS, Singapore Airlines, Thai and Turkish Airlines. There are 28 Star Alliance member airlines in total.
Itineraries can include any other Star Alliance member airlines as well. On flights where Premium Economy is not offered, travellers will be accommodated in Economy.
