Cathay Pacific has unveiled its retrofitted ten-across economy class cabin on board its fleet of Boeing 777 aircraft, with new thinner seat products.
The new layout will be adopted across all 48 of its B777-300ER and 17 B777-300 aircraft, with full rollout expected by 2020.
Until now, the Hong Kong carrier was one of the few remaining aircraft to outfit the aircraft with a 3-3-3 layout, with the less popular 3-4-3 configuration now more of an industry standard.
Business Traveller is at the unveiling and will publish a more in-depth look at the new cabin layout and seat product soon.
The new seats’ 17.2-inch width, which Cathay Pacific has said is comparable to other premium airlines, keeps things rather snug.
Meanwhile the pitch (space between the seats) is 32 inches, and recline is six inches.
The size of the in-flight entertainment screens, however, has been increased from nine inches to 11.6 inches in the B777-300ER, with a higher resolution.
Seats also feature a Personal Electronic Device (PED) holder that allows passengers to use their own mobile devices onboard.
