CHINA - Hong Kong national carrier Cathay Pacific has commenced a revamp of its business class cabins on its long-haul Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircrafts.

The project is expected to cost more than HK$1bn (US$128m) and is to be phased in during the next two years.

The new cabins will give travellers wider seating and flat-beds tilted towards the windows as well as larger work-space, storage and multimedia facilities.

“Like other Asian airlines, our focus is on business class,” Cathy’s CEO-desingate, John Slossar said. “It was a bit of a reach for our board at the time but it was supportive of the need for the new product.”
