Premium economy seat

Hi all
Quick question about the premium economy bulkhead seat:
Are they better compared to the other rows?
I red some mixed reviews ..

Thanks

I think it may depend upon the aircraft flown. We flew on the Dreamliner back to LHR and chose the second row rather than bulkhead. We did so because to avoid IFE coming from the armrest. I thought the PE was a great product and very good value.

El-Al only have PE on the Dreamliner.

OP, not specifically LY, but I personally usually go for the bulkhead seats when in Economy or Premium as I appreciate no one reclining in to me.

I had the same question as the OP. I would also go for bulkhead for precisely this reason, however it doesn't bother you that you can't have easy access to your personal stuff by putting under the seat in front of you? Since there is no seat, you are forced to put all in the overhead bin.

I also prefer the bulkhead.
One more disadvantage of the bulkhead is that you cannot use the IFE gate to gate.

Does Premium Economy get to check in with Business Class?

Bulkhead and leg room in premium econ 787?

For those who have flown in row 17 (bulkhead) - is there a hard wall in front of a curtain? If a wall, doesn't that restrict leg room? Wouldn't a regular row be better (for us tall folks?)

It is a wall. Leg room is restricted but generous.

My preffered seat in Premiem Economy is 17A due to the nice amount of legroom. The only downside of row 17 is how close it is to the galley.

You've convinced me. Is 17K symmetric with 17A in terms of leg room?
