Why would you pay £398 for something if you don't know what it is???

All of the airlines offering premium economy give you extra leg room, and more reclining space but some offer a number of extra benefits. Virgin give you a pre-flight drink, dedicated boarding and luggage reclaim, compare this with BMI who offer free alcoholic and soft drinks plus advance seat selection at time of booking. You don't mention the airline you are flying with but this covers two, so hope this is helpful.

We are travelling with THomas cook airlines and hope to get extra leg room , but were hoping for later check in time too. Maybe not, i think i will have to contact T.Cook directly. Thanks for your reply anyway. Any further info would be helpful if you have any.

Even if you can pick your seat and 24hrs before the flight print-out your tickets you are still on an international flight and with the current security checks etc the min is 2 hours, but you might manage to avoid the main queue and just head to luggage rapid check-in but contact TC to make sure and that way you will you will know what to expect on your arrival at the airport.
