    It would have to be seriously cheap for me to upgrade. I'm one of those people who just wants a seat on a plane going in the right direction. I'll put up with a certain amount of discomfort in return for having extra spending money at the other end.

    we really like premium economy upstairs in the bubble, it's not as good downstairs.

    upstairs is much quieter and theres just no stress. although it is more we save all year or maybe 2 so when it comes to it, we'll splash out

    tbh if you can afford it go for it. I love PE, especially in the bubble. There is so much more space, the aisle is a lot wider, there are more stewards/esses per passenger and it just seems so much more civilised. You also get off the plane that much quicker so you get at least 5 minutes longer in Orlando

    Which does help because if you're hiring a car you get to the front of the line first.

    When we flew to the UK in 2007 I booked PE on BA. They upgraded us to Club World on the way over but we had PE on the way back. I was less than impressed. However, the cost for PE was insignificant if I remember correctly.

    If there is a deal around we upgrade, this summer Virgin were offering Upper Class in
    the summer to Miami at just over 1100 pounds per person. Now that is well worth it nice beds, food, use of the first class lounge at heathrow etc etc

    I have flown PE in the bubble and loved it.

    I can't access PE upstairs with DS any more which leaves me the option of two rows downstairs and I am usually allocated the bulkhead row behind these anyway. So now there is no increase baggage allowance I would not be pay to upgrade unless it was a ridiculously good deal...which is highly unlikely.

    I'd love to do UCS one day.

    Hi there

    I know this is an older thread but i would just like to add some pics that i recently came across that may help with you question.
    Of course everyone has different thoughts on it but we love PE in the bubble it is so much quieter than downstairs, so much so i acually get some sleep.

    Now these are the older seats that are on the Gatwick / Manchester fleet but IMHO i like them better than the new purple leather ones but that is just me.

    Unfortunately these are the new updates and they've not upgraded the LGW MCO flights yet and I think they are not going to do them due to the economic situation in the situation. Still really prefer PE


    'champagne on boarding although that doesn't really swing it for us'. Unfortuantely I'm really shallow and the offer of free champagne does it for me every time
