A350 Cathay's new business class: designed by Porsche.

Cathay Pacific will launch all-new designs for its business class and economy seats on its Airbus A350 fleet from early 2016.

The airline has hired Porsche Design Group to craft its new business class seats, codenamed ‘FB3’ as it will be Cathay’s third flatbed business class.

Also on the roster is London-based Tangerine, perhaps best known as the former home of Apple design guru Jony Ive, which is responsible for Cathay's new economy seats. In addition Tangerine has won a ‘tip to tail’ brief to design the cabin interiors for all three classes on the Airbus A350.

The first of Cathay Pacific’s order of 20 A350-900 is slated for delivery in early 2016 and will sport a 3-class configuration with business, premium economy and economy class.

Based on the article “Cathay Pacific confirms next-gen business class for Airbus A350” published in Australian Business Traveller.
