Qantas has unveiled the new seats and interiors that will be introduced in all its 30 Airbus A330 aircraft beginning in late-2014.
Business Class on the aircraft will feature the new Marc Newson-designed Business Suites in a 1-2-1 layout with fully-flat beds and direct aisle access from every seat.
The new Business Class seats can be left in a reclining position for take-off and landing, increasing the time for rest.
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said that the business class suites are superior to those of its competitors in Qantas’ key routes in Asia and on the domestic east-west market.
“We’ve created a product that has enough space to dine while working, or if you want to rest, to leave the seat in a recline position from take-off to landing,” Joyce said.
The ten A330-300s for Qantas International will get new Economy seats while 20 A330-200s for Qantas Domestic will have their Economy seats refurbished.
The aircraft will also feature Qantas’ Q-Streaming technology, giving passengers access to an extensive entertainment library streamed to their personal devices such as smartphones and tablets.
