    According to an April 3rd press release by Swire subsidiary HAECO the launch customer for their new premium economy ‘Eclipse’ seat is a large middle east based airline.
    There are not too many large middle eastern based carriers about to introduce a premium economy cabin.
    There is an image of the new seat in the press release.

    Two days ago at the Arabian Travel Market Emirates president Sir Tim Clark confirmed that premium economy will be launched next year on both its A380s and B777s.

    No other details were made available other than it would be cheaper than business class.

    I would expect local rivals to follow in due course.

    Looks like the launch is now delayed because of delivery delays of the B777X and the product might d├ębut on the A380 in December 2020.
