I'm planning a return trip SYD to NYC/WAS this May and am wondering which are the better premium economy offers ex Australia? Any suggestions?

Virgin Australia and Qantas (A380 better than 787) are both good. Also Air NZ has a really good product if you don't mind an extra stop in Auckland.

Something to be mindful of is that only Qantas offer premium economy right through to JFK, with no domestic sector in economy once you reach the States.

I think Air NZ has the best product with a better seat and the food and drinks are excellent compared to the older seat on QF a380 or minimal legroom on their 787. The VA seat is quite standard and not that special and same can be said for their food and drink.

Singapore Airlines, have had good deals on PE for direct SIN to NYC. Depending on where you live you might get a PE service to SIN. The NYC connection works best from PER, however SQ seem to have decided not to offer PE out of PER.
Thank you all very much for your comments and advice. I am a QF Lifetime Gold and would much prefer to fly with them, but their fares are quite often stratospheric..! There is obviously plenty to choose from, and that includes excellent carriers going via intermediate points in NZ and Asia which I hadn't thought of. The better quality might be worth the longer travel time, but key deciding factors will be availability and cost. Thanks again.
