A320 - LIM-EZE Flight LA8011 Nov 2 - Premium Economy? Or just blocked middle seat

Hi Everyone ,
Flight LA8011 on Nov 2 operated by Latam Brasil, Is the premium economy just a blocked middle seat?
Total of 12 seats in what looks like a separate cabin.

Thanks!!

Yes. The pitch between seats it’s a little better, they serve business class food and there is a curtain separating the rest of the plane

If that's what you are expecting, you should look for wide-body flights. For regional they are more scarce, but they offer full business class service.

I am booked LATAM SAO-IGU-RIO-SAO, and all the flights seem to be monoclass. It looks like Row 1 is a premium? Can I assign these by calling in for free if I am OWE, is it even worth it for a 1hr flight? Not sure I was the hassle of dealing with a phone agent.

You just get slightly better leg room in Row 1 but no middle seat blocked, better choose the exit row seat for more legroom if not in hurry depart the aircraft at arrival. I usually ask exit row or some row in the front in check at the airport but choose the seat as front as you can, if not in exit row, planes are usually full. Depend the airport you might have a bus transfer to/from aircraft. In IGU you walk, SAO is a common name, it is either GRU or CGH, so is RIO, either GIG or SDU. I would choose SDU( nice views in landing and take off) to and from Rio de Janeiro and CGH(when not in int.transit).

The TAM Business Class seats on the A320 were the same as the seats in domesti First Class in the U.S. I think all the TAM A320s received new seats and there is a domestic version with very tight seat pitch and all Y and an international version with 12 Premium Eco seats (middle seats is kept free like Euro Business Class). I was on an ex JJ plane a few weeks ago (ASU-SCL-ASU) and the seat pitch was ok and they served a good hot meal and kept the wine floating...
