Malaysia Airlines discards A350 premium economy plans

Malaysia Airlines CEO Peter Bellew told FlightGlobal earlier this week that the airline will no longer fit the A350 with premium economy seats as they “would erode our business product and revenues.”

The airline will instead focus on its business passengers. “Our focus is on making a super five-star business product over the next 18 months”.

The A350s will instead maintain a two-class layout with 286 seats, 35 business and 247 economy. 25 of the economy seats will have extra legroom, which is available for an extra fee. The first A350 is due to arrive at the end of 2017 and will be used to replace their A380s.
