Royal Brunei Airlines has taken delivery of its first of seven Airbus A320neo aircraft, which are set to take over routes across its regional network.
As with the airline’s older A320s, the new aircraft features two classes in total. Business class comprises 12 seats laid out in a 2-2 formation and each offering a pitch (legroom) of 42 inches, a width of 22.7 inches and a 10-inch recline. Seats also have in-seat power and 10.4-inch personal screens.
However unlike the older A320s, the A320neos also feature 18 preferred seats located from rows 21 to 23, which offer additional legroom (32 inches) compared to the economy cabin (30 inches).
Width on these seats appears to be 17.1 for both the main cabin and preferred seats, while recline ranges from 4.5 inches to 6 inches. In-seat power and entertainment screens are not available.
Royal Brunei Airlines first began flying the older A320 in 2003 and currently has six of the older aircraft in its fleet. The airline hasn’t announced which exact routes the new aircraft will be flying.
Further afield, Royal Brunei Airlines recently announced it would begin flying non-stop to London starting October 28 this year, cutting out its current stopover in Dubai and reducing the overall flight duration by about three and a half hours.
