The first airline in the world began in Europe – specifically, Germany – and was named Deutsche Luftschiffahrts-Aktiengesellschaft I, with the acronym DELAG, founded on 16 November 1909. It was partly commercial and partly used for war purposes from 1914 to 1919. 

Ever since then, slowly, more and more airlines have been coming up, for both commercial as well as military. Today, there are so many, that you cannot even count on your fingers anymore! 

To add to that, each airline has a distinction of at least two classes: premium economy and first class. As you might guess, there is a price difference between the two, but that is not all. 

Read on to find out what is the difference between economy and first class flights:

Pricing

Premium economy seats have better features than the economy at an affordable price. First class, up to five times as much as business class seats. It is much more affordable than first class seats. 

Space

Premium economy class flight is comfier and has more legroom than economy class. First class flight has a luxurious experience with lie-flat seats and privacy; often, there are no seats in first class, but individual suites! The space between seats is comparatively lesser in premium economy than in first class.

Distance

Premium economy is best for short flights; you need not spend a fortune on a plane that is taking you just about 450 km than on one that is taking you across the Atlantic! Then again, it is completely dependent on your preferences. 

These are the differences between premium economy class flight and first class flight in any airline. 

At first, the prices of the tickets were all the same. It was in the year 1955, after more than a decade-long deliberation, different classes were created in airlines that have different costs.
