May 9 The chief executive of Singapore Airlines
Ltd said on Friday the airline will launch a premium
economy service in the second half of 2015.
Goh Choon Phong said they had decided to bring in the
service, which tends to offer passengers more legroom and perks
compared to economy but is cheaper than business class, in
response to market feedback.
He was speaking to the media and analysts after the airline
reported a widening in its fourth quarter operating loss after
the market close on Thursday.
