Cathay Pacific Airways has taken delivery of a new Boeing 777-300ER that is the first aircraft to feature its Premium Economy Class product and new long-haul Economy Class seats. At the same time, the airline also received its fifth Boeing 747-8F from the manufacturer.

As well as introducing a totally new seat and entertainment system, Cathay Pacific has designed the entire customer experience to be more special for its new Premium Economy Class passengers.

To begin with, the new Premium Economy experience features a quieter, more spacious cabin than the traditional Economy Class with between 26 and 34 seats per aircraft.

Passengers can book the Premium Economy seats for flights departing from 1 April onwards which will initially be featured on some of the selected flights on the Sydney, Toronto, Vancouver and New York routes.

The new long-haul Economy Class seat features a cradle mechanism to enhance the level of comfort in the recline position, the latest in high-resolution touch-screen personal televisions, a USB outlet and an ipod/iphone outlet that allows passengers to connect their own mobile devices to view content through the personal television.

A TOTAL OF 36 BOEING 777-300 ERS AND 26 AIRBUS 330300S WILL BE FITTED WITH THE SEATS BY DECEMBER 2013.
