Cathay Pacific is upgrading the premium economy cabin across its Boeing 777-300ER fleet.
This doesn't involve a new seat, no doubt to the disappointment of those who have flown in Cathay's Airbus A350 premium economy seat (shown below, and which we rate as among the very best in the skies).
Instead, the Hong Kong flag carrier is fitting the calf-rest usually found on only the front row of premium economy...
... to all 34 recliners on the big Boeing.
Those rows are also being spaced two inches further apart, to increase pitch in the premium economy cabin from 38 inches to 40 inches – the same spec as on the A350.
Selected members of the Boeing 777-300ER fleet have already been given their legroom-friendly makeover.
Cathay Pacific flies both the Airbus A350 and Boeing 777-300ER between Australia and Hong Kong, with the Boeing 777 already seen on two Sydney flights and a third from October.
