Malaysia Airlines new business class seats on A330

Travel News 01 Nov 2015

Malaysia Airlines will upgrade its Airbus A330 business class from April 2016 for flights to Australia and Asia.

The spacious fully lie-flat seats replace the current A330's angled flat beds and "sloping sleepers".

From the in-situ image from Australian Business Travel, the staggered layout is alternating between 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 – which would afford direct aisle access for most passengers plus a handful of wide Swiss with two wide shelves either side.

The 20.6-inch wide seat turns into a fully flat 76-inch bed, which the airline says will be dressed with soft bed linen.

The 16-inch touchscreens are complemented by AC and USB outlets. The airlines has not mentioned if the same seats will extend to the rest of its fleet, including its Airbus A350s due to arrive from late 2017.
