Cathay Pacific upgrades Delhi Hong Kong route to new Business, Premium Economy and Economy class cabins

Cathay Pacific Airways is upgrading its daily Delhi Hong Kong service with the introduction of the airline’s new Business Class cabin and its new Premium Economy Class cabin from October 29.

Cathay Pacific will operate this route with an Airbus A330-300 aircraft featuring a three-class configuration – new Business Class, Premium Economy Class and the new long-haul Economy Class seats.

The airline’s new Business Class cabin features private, lie-flat seats with direct aisle access. Cathay Pacific was voted “World’s Best Business Class” in the 2012 Skytrax World Airline Awards™.

Cathay Pacific’s new Premium Economy Class features a quieter, more spacious cabin than the traditional Economy Class with between 26 and 34 seats per aircraft. The seat pitch is 38 inches and the seat itself is wider and has a bigger recline. It has a large meal table, cocktail table, footrest, a 10.6-inch personal television, an in-seat power outlet, a multi-port connector for personal devices and extra personal stowage space.

The new long-haul Economy Class seat features a cradle mechanism to enhance the level of comfort in the recline position. Each seat comes with the latest high-resolution touch-screen personal television, a USB outlet and an iPod/iPhone outlet to allow passengers to connect their own mobile devices to view content through their personal television. The seat also offers improved living space and more personal storage space.
