New Premium Economy Class seats will be progressively introduced by Cathay Pacific on its long haul flights from March 2012. At the same time the airline will upgrade a new Economy product, also beginning from March.
The new Premium Economy product will feature a quieter, more spacious cabin than the existing Economy Class with between 26 and 34 seats. The seat pitch will be 38 inches – six inches more than Economy Class – and the seat itself will be wider and have a bigger recline. It will have a large meal table, cocktail table, footrest, 10.6-inch personal television, in-seat power outlet, multi-port connector for personal devices, and extra personal stowage space.
On the ground, travellers will enjoy priority check-in at dedicated counters and priority boarding before Economy Class passengers. There will also be an increase in baggage allowance from 20kg to 25kg.
In the air, passengers will also receive an environmentally friendly amenity bag with dental kit, socks and eyeshade. Larger pillows and noise-cancelling headsets will be provided to enhance the onboard experience. Improved catering will be provided too, and drinks upon boarding. www.cathaypacific.com
