An Economy Class that is simply smarter

Our Economy Smart Seat is the ultimate in smart design.

We have challenged the norms to deliver choice and comfort, and bring a sense of spontaneity, surprise and fun back to travel.

Our Economy Smart Seat has a unique headrest that provides a shoulder to lean on and adjustable back support for a more comfortable flight. The seat offers generous legroom (32-inch seat pitch) and a recline of 6 inches.

On the seat-back you will find your entertainment and connectivity hub, with the handset and connectivity ports in easy reach. The cabin mood lighting system helps provide a relaxed ambience throughout the flight. Subtle changes are designed to stimulate calm, sleep and finally revitalisation, so you arrive at your destination feeling rested and refreshed.

We are constantly adding little touches to make flying a memorable experience for your entire family, especially the younger ones.

In the air

In Economy Class, we want to make you more comfortable with:

  • full-sized fleece blankets
  • unique pillows that convert into neck pillows for longer flights
  • blanket bags that double up as a bag to store your personal belongings on long journeys

On longer flights in Economy Class, we’ll give you a personal amenity kit.
Our ‘Sleep Tight’ kit contains a pair of socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, and earplugs. You can also let us know whether you want to be woken for your meal by using our clever ‘Do not disturb/Wake me up to eat’ eye-mask.

Enjoy hundreds of hours of on-demand entertainment. Keep in touch with friends or family with a range of connection ports at your fingertips and mobile or Wi-Fi connectivity on board for selected flights.
