Cathay Pacific A350 interior configuration with seats customized by Porsche.

The 280-seat A350-900s of Cathay Pacific will be configured with 38 FB2+ New Business Class seats customised by Germany’s Porsche Design Group and based on a new-generation Cirrus seat by Zodiac Aerospace, which will feature incremental upgrades on the existing award-winning Business Class design such as improved table and personal television positions, whereas the existing Business Class seats will receive a mid-life refresh.

The A350 will also come with 28 and 214 New Premium Economy Class and New Economy Class seats, respectively, of which Cathay Pacific general manager Toby Smith remarked on the New Economy Class seat design, “No shell seats”.

Cathay Pacific will debut inflight Wi-Fi on the flagship A350-900 as well, doing some trials on its pricing model, despite it is not yet reassured by the technology and it cannot be switched on while in the Chinese airspace at the moment.

A new Economy meal tray will also be introduced aboard the A350, Smith said.
