PAL GOES FULLY FLAT ON A321NEO
PHILIPPINE AIRLINES has unveiled the new business class seat product for its single-aisle A321neo aircraft. Laid out in a 2-2 configuration, with a small divider to separate passengers, all 12 seats will be angled towards the windows.
The new seats will recline into a fully flat bed position, though with the 2-2 layout this does mean window-seat passengers will need to climb over their neighbours to exit their seat. Passengers will have access to in-seat power and USB outlets, seat-back screens and wifi.
The new seats will be available on Philippine Airlines’ Manila-Brisbane route from July 2, 2018 onwards, making it the only narrow-body flight to Australia to offer fully flat seating in business class.
