Cathay Pacific New Business Class Seat from February 2016

Cathay Pacific will launch its new business class seat in February 2016 on board its flagship Airbus A350 fleet, with a mid-life refresh for the current Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 business class to follow. The seat will come from Zodiac Aerospace and belong to the same Cirrus family as Cathay’s existing business class, although CX product exec Toby Smith describes the platform to Australian Business Traveller as “an enhanced Cirrus.” Smith confirmed that the seat’s design will be carried out by Germany’s Porsche Design Group, which was “engaged for their industrial design expertise”. It’s believed that Cathay’s A350 will have 38 seats in business class, 28 in premium economy and 214 in economy. Smith also reveals that the A350 will feature a “different and improved” premium economy seat compared to today’s first-gen seat (below), although he refused to be drawn on specifics.
