Air India has opted for a two-class seat configuration on the 14 Airbus 320neo planes that it will receive in the coming months.

The carrier’s next-generation aircraft will be configured for 160 seats, with 12 business class seats and 148 in economy. This is in response to the increase in demand for business class, says the airline.

Future plans include phasing out the existing A320s in Air India’s fleet of 66 Airbus aircraft, the majority of which are over 26 years old. Other Airbus aircraft in the fleet include 20 A321s and 22 A319s.
