It is useful to understand what particular names means and what are differences between these classes. Thanks to it, you will be able to book a seat in the class that would be the most suitable for you and your needs.

Obviously, all of these differences are reflected in the price of tickets in particular class.
Economic class is the cheapest one. However, low price has its consequences. Possibility of changes flights details is very limited, usually is available only for additional fee. Space between sits is smaller than in other classes thus passengers have less space for themselves. Number and type of meals in economic class depend on the length and time of the flight.

Some aircrafts offer passengers individual screen to enjoy audio-visual programs. However, it is not standard in business class and depends widely on airline, aircrafts as well as flight length.
Premium class is a class between economy and business ones. Passengers might enjoy more specious seats and additional facilities, as for example, bigger variety of available meals, wider choice of drinks, larger selection of audio-visual materials that could be watched in individual screen, electrical outlet next to the seat and so on. Additional options and bonuses in premium class widely depend on particular airlines (check more – http://www.lot.com/us/en/).
