The new seat arrives in reverse herringbone 1-2-1 layout. The 82-inch lie-flat seats all have direct-aisle-access and feature a partially sliding divider to increase privacy but not detract from the service.

In flight entertainment is provided through a huge 18.5″ touchscreen which can be controlled via Bluetooth from your phone or tablet. Passengers flying the suites will also be able to pre-order pyjamas in their size, with a choice of both long tops and bottoms
