Philippine Airlines reveals new Airbus A350, A321Neo business class


Philippine Airlines has pulled back the covers on new business class seats for its forthcoming Airbus A3210neo and A350 fleets.

The first of PAL’s six A321Neo jets will take wing this month on regional routes beginning with the non-stop Brisbane-Manila service from July 2.

The A3210neo has 12 business class seats, across three rows in a 2-2 arrangement.

Each seat converts into a fully flat 2 metre bed.

If you don’t want to sleep, catch a movie on the large HD video display…

… or jump online via the inflight Internet service.

Philippine Airlines’ new Airbus A350s will follow mid-year with flights to New York from July and London to follow.

The 30 business class seats are Thompson Aero’s Vantage XL model, as seen on the airline’s recent Airbus A330 refit.

The 1-2-1 configuration gives every passenger direct access to the aisle.

Each of the new A350 business class seats is 23-24 inches wide and reclines to a fully-flat bed that’s 2 metres long from your follicles to your feet.

There’ll also be inflight WiFi, which is now almost the norm for international flights.

Just behind business class is a new premium economy class cabin (shown above) of 24 seats in a 2-4-2 layout, with 19 inch seat width, a 38 inch pitch and an 8 inch recline, with a USB power port next to each seatback video screen.
