First Class upgrade for Cathay

Cathay Pacific Airways unveiled a refreshed First Class product which features a significant enhancement to the cabin’s look and feel along with the introduction of a number of new features.

Cathay Pacific’s General Manager Product, Toby Smith, said: “Our award-winning First Class suite has been very popular with passengers since it was introduced in 2007.  Given its popularity we saw no pressing need to completely replace the product.  However, we decided it was appropriate to give the suites a fresh new look and make a few changes that will enhance the overall experience for our premium passengers.  This underlines our commitment to excellence in providing an exceptional travel experience for our customers”.

The cabin has been designed by London-based architects Foster + Partners, better known for their airport work and responsible for the First Class Lounge of The Wing at Chek Lap Kop Hong Kong International Airport

The first Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with the upgraded First Class has entered service and the entire cabin refresh project is scheduled to be completed by the third quarter of 2014.  The First Class cabins in Cathay Pacific’s Boeing 747-400 aircraft are not included in the project as the fleet is in the process of being retired. www.cathaypacific.com
