Garuda In­done­sia to cut first class to Lon­don

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - UPFRONT -

GARUDA IN­DONE­SIA will stop of­fer­ing first class seat­ing to Lon­don from June 20 on­wards, as it looks to switch from a three-class to two-class Boe­ing B777-300ER.

The con­fig­u­ra­tion change for flights GA086/87 on the car­rier’s Jakarta-Sin­ga­pore-Lon­don Heathrow route will in­crease the over­all num­ber of seats from 314 to 393 at the ex­pense of its first class cabin – a con­tin­u­a­tion of the cur­rent trend by many air­lines to­wards dele­tion of the most pres­ti­gious seat­ing in favour of im­proved busi­ness class prod­ucts.

Garuda cur­rently op­er­ates the route three times weekly, with its Tues­day, Satur­day and Sun­day sched­ule not ex­pected to change.
