Just two months into the launch of its all Club Class daily service between London and Hong Kong, Hong Kong Airlines received an honourable mention in the aviation category of the prestigious Condé Nast Traveller Innovation and Design Awards 2012 last week.
The airline’s premium service was recognised ahead of Virgin Atlantic’s JFK Clubhouse, Korean Air’s new Airbus A380 and Lufthansa’s Airbus A321 biofuel aircraft. Launched on 8 March 2012 as the world’s first all Club Class daily service between London and Hong Kong, the airline has three brand new Airbus A330-200 aircraft dedicated to the route. Each aircraft is configured with just 116 seats in an exclusive all Club Class offering; Club Premier and Club Classic. (see issue 14 May)
Club Premier includes 34 fully-flat 6ft 1ins beds configured 1+2+1 in the two forward cabins and Club Classic features 82 cradle seats configured 2+2+2 over two cabins with a 51ins seat pitch with 22ins width. Other benefits for passengers include an in-flight menu created by Michelin star chef, Jason Atherton; two on-board bars, free wi-fi, a superior 96kg luggage allowance of three pieces at 32kg each and state-of-the art AVOD seat-back entertainment systems. www.hongkongairlines.com
