The plane will be outfitted with 14 suites in first class; 56 lie-flat seats in Club World, the carrier’s business class section; 44 in World Traveller Plus, the airline’s premium economy plus section; and 183 seats in World Traveller, the plane’s economy section.

Seats in the new first class section are 22” wide, and have a bed length of 78”.  A la carte dining is available, and there is an ottoman for dining companions.  Passengers in first class will also receive pajamas and a luxury amenity kit, as well as a white cotton duvet and pillow.

Seats also have a personal closet and leather-bound writing desk that can convert into a dining table.  Windows are outfitted with electronic blinds that can be modified to reflect a passenger’s mood or the time of day.
