Air Asia is laid back

AIR ASIA X, the long haul arm of Malaysian budget carrier, used the Singapore Low Cost Airlines Asia conference last week to announce the introduction of fully-flat beds on its fleet of long haul Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft. Introduced on the Kuala Lumpur to Australia’s Gold Coast service, by mid year the new product should also be offered on the London services too.  12 lie-flat seats with 60 inch pitch in a 2 x 2 x 2 layout, two rows of six, replace 28 premium seats at 38 inch seat pitch.  The offering will not include in-seat entertainment, said by the airline to be “a bit over-rated” stating that “people carry their own entertainment now”.  However power sockets will enabling passengers to plug in their PSPs, I-phones or other electronic devices are provided as are portable DVD players.   A full report on the Singapore Low Cost Airlines Asia conference will appear next week.  www.airasia.com
