2 March 2012 by Luke McCormick

Cathay Pacific has taken delivery of a new Boeing 777-330ER, the first aircraft to feature its Premium Economy Class product and new long-haul Economy Class seats.

Speaking at the delivery ceremony at the Boeing factory in Seattle, Cathay Pacific Chief Operating Officer Ivan Chu said: "This is an important development for Cathay Pacific - another big step in our commitment to provide outstanding products and services to our passengers.

"We're confident that both these new products will be winners, especially when combined with the famous Cathay Pacific service."

From May, Premium Economy will be featured on selected flights on the Hong Kong to London route.

Cathay Pacific's new Premium Economy experience features a quieter, more spacious cabin than the traditional Economy Class with between 26 and 34 seats per aircraft. The seat pitch will be 38 inches - six inches more than Economy Class - and the seat itself will be wider and have a bigger recline.

The cabin will have a large meal table, cocktail table, footrest, a 10.6-inch personal television, an in-seat power outlet, a multi-port connector for personal devices and extra personal stowage space.

As well as introducing a totally new seat and entertainment system Cathay Pacific has designed the entire customer experience to be more special for its new Premium Economy Class passengers.

Passengers will also benefit from priority check-in and priority boarding before Economy Class passengers, an increase in baggage allowance, a welcome juice and champagne, enhanced onboard meal selection, personal bottle of water and additional snack choices.

Passengers can book the Premium Economy seats for flights departing from 01 April onwards, which will initially be featured on some of the selected flights to Sydney, Toronto, Vancouver and New York.

Cathay Pacific's new long-haul Economy Class seat features a cradle mechanism to enhance the level of comfort in the recline position. The seat also offers improved living space and more personal storage space.
