More Economy Class seats on Cathay Pacific’s (CX) regional flights are available, now that the retrofitting of 12 of its Boeing B777-300s has been completed.
The programme has resulted in Business Class seats dropping from 59 to 45, bringing it more in line with CX and sister airline Dragonair’s A330-300 regional configuration. Meanwhile, Economy Class seats have increased to 353 seats. The total number of seats on this aircraft is 398.
“A change in traffic patterns,” say CX officials, led to this new offering. The continuing global financial crisis has been identified as the culprit in passengers downsizing their seat preferences.
CX executives also added the new seat configuration would “improve the service continuity” of the crew.
These B777-300s are used mainly on services such as those between Hongkong and Taipei, Seoul and Japan.
