EVA Royal Laurel Class

Taiwan’s EVA Air has introduced a luxurious new-generation Business cabin named Royal Laurel Class on its New York service.

By the end of August this year the airline will have installed the cabin on all the Boeing 777-300ERs used on the route.  It plans to introduce Royal Laurel Class on Los Angeles service by the end 2012 and begin to roll it out on San Francisco, Toronto, Paris, Amsterdam and London flights in 2013.  It will complete the cabin upgrades by August 2013.

EVA is configuring its Royal Laurel Class cabins with 38 seats in a reverse herringbone layout that enables passengers at windows to look out without turning and those in the centre to easily dine and talk with travel companions.  Or passengers can use convenient privacy panels to establish cosy in-flight cocoons for rest or work. The seats are approximately 26 inches wide, recline 180 degrees and stretch out almost 79 inches.

In addition, EVA is outfitting its luxurious new Royal Laurel Class seating environments with the latest audio and video technologies, starting with 15.4-inch touch screens and high-fidelity noise-cancelling headphones.  Passengers are offered USB and iPod ports on a system equipped with Media Player, Photo Viewer and PDF Reader.  Power sockets are 110V. www.evaair.com
