CATHAY Pacific is planning to introduce premium economy-class seats on its fleet by the second quarter of next year.
According to the airline’s CEO, John Slosar, the new product will be “a real upgrade over economy” for the additional cost.
“The seat will be more like a regional business-class seat. We’ll have great recline and plenty of leg space,” Slosar said.
“But it’s not just the seat, we’ll have an improved service as well,” he added. “The meal service will be improved and little extras will leave anyone who chooses Cathay Pacific’s premium economy feeling they really got value for their money.”
The premium-economy class seats will be introduced on all of Cathay Pacific’s longhaul routes, ultra longhauls to Europe and North America, and mediumhauls to Australia, the Middle East and other destinations.
