Cathay Pacific has added the Boeing 777-330ER to its fleet. It is the first aircraft to feature its Premium Economy Class and new long-haul Economy Class seats.
Passengers can book the Premium Economy seats for flights departing from 1st April onwards, which will initially be featured on some selected flights to Sydney, Toronto, Vancouver and New York.
Premium Economy features a quieter, more spacious cabin, with between 26 and 34 seats per aircraft. The seat pitch is 38 inches – six inches more than Economy Class – and the seat is wider and has a bigger recline. It also has a large meal table, footrest, cocktail table, 10.6-inch personal TV, in-seat power outlet and multi-port connector for personal devices.
Passengers will have priority check-in and boarding before Economy Class, they will be able to take more luggage. They will also be welcomed with a juice and champagne, and will have a larger selection of meals.
