Oh this comment was just on a personal level and not for the 'overall' PE product. The whole concept of PE obviously is that it's a class that sits between J/Y but that is the deal breaker for my requirements.
So on a personal level, the prospect of getting more legroom + slightly better service just isn't as attractive to me to justify a 2x price for a PE seat, especially when I have status and can score exit rows in Y for free. When PE seats go on sale though, it's a different story altogether as the product suddenly becomes much more attractive.
Ah yes, one of my favorite myths. On one of my "special" routes LAX-PER the least expensive CX fares in June (not a sale period) are US$2445 in Y and US$2941 in the W cabin (09 Jun-18 Jun). Also avoids SYD and the Y segment SYD-PER. And for a modest extra a free stopover in HKG.
Qantas wants $US2274 in Y (09 Jun-17 Jun - no flights on 18 $330 more on 19 Jun) and $US3522 in the W cabin (well at least on the TransPacific leg).
NB: I did not price the fares exAustralia. I fully expect the fares would be substantially less customer friendly.
