Cathay Pacific A340-300s To Receive Premium Economy Cabin

Cathay Pacific has revealed plans to refit its Premium Economy cabin on the Airbus A340-300 fleet. From July 2013, passengers flying the jets on routes between Hong Kong and Amsterdam, Auckland and Paris will have the option of travelling on the product.


Since making its debut in February 2012 on the Boeing 777-300ER, the airline’s Premium Economy cabin has proven popular with passengers seeking a bridge between Business and Economy Class. Offering better seat pitch, width and recline, passengers also enjoy some business class service aspects such as dedicated check-in counters, additional baggage allowance, amenities, welcome drink and meal options.


When refitted, Cathay Pacific’s A340-300s will feature 265 seats in a 3-class cabin configuration, of which 28 will be Premium Economy Class seats. The airline currently operates 11 of the jets in its fleet, which will join the Boeing 777-30ER, Boeing 747-400 and Airbus A330-300 as the fourth aircraft type to feature the product.
