Cathay Pacific's regional arm Dragonair will soon be flying the first of its upgraded Airbus A320 jets with new business class and economy seating along with streaming WiFi entertainment.
The first three of Dragonair's 15 A320s will enter service "in early 2015, and the fourth will be ready by mid-2015", the airline says.
While the business (above) and economy seats will be the same as Dragonair's Airbus A321 and A330 jets, the wireless inflight system is completely new to the airline and will allow travellers to enjoy video and music from the StudioKA library on their own smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Business class travellers will be offered an Apple iPad to use during the flight.
While economy is a fully BYO proposition, Dragonair says the seats will feature two integrated tablet holders "located on the seat back and on the meal table."
The StudioKA WiFi system will be progressively fitted to other aircrafts types in the Dragonair fleet, although it's not on the slate for parent airline Cathay Pacific.
"We have no plan to roll out the same WiFi streaming solution to Cathay Pacific at the moment" a spokeswoman for Cathay Pacific told Australian Business Traveller.
