Malaysia Airlines to introduce Economy Plus seating in Airbus A380s

New refit plans are in pipeline for Malaysia Airlines A380s with the introduction of Economy Plus class.

The all-new business class cabin offered in A330

The seat folds down into a fully-flat 1.9 metre (76 inch) bed

The economy cabin at the rear of the superjumbo's upper deck – currently the domain of 70 economy class passengers, behind the business class cabin – will be converted into an 'economy plus' zone.

Passengers can expect better legroom with some of the nine rows (#32 to #40) will be removed while remained the same 2-4-2 seat configuration.

The new cabin class would deliver "enhanced space and premium offerings" but it would be sold as Economy Plus rather than a dedicated premium economy class favoured by the likes of its competitors; Qantas, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines.
