...as a regular on the LHR-TLV route, this is one of the best options. I will aim to fly it again if I can find it for the right price — it’s a shame the Matmid programme is about as useful as a hummus teapot.

Just noticed that El Al is bringing back Economy Plus to their 787-8. (in addition to Premium Economy)
Front 7 rows of economy (63 seats), not counting the exit rows of the back half. That's significantly more seats than the 747/777. But their also lowering the price to $110 (from $160), probably to balance the increase.

First 787-8 (4X-ERA) was delivered this past Thursday night. First commercial flight departed to BKK last night and just returned to TLV about 3 hours ago.

What’s this difference between this and premium economy?

Economy plus is a standard economy seat with extra leg room. Premium Economy is a separate cabin, wider seats, more recline, more leg room, upgraded meal and service, and extra baggage allowance.

Premium economy is a class of its own. Wider seats, less seats per row and business class meals.
Economy plus is just more legroom and recline.

Does Elal 787 or United 777 has a better premium economy?
