Like many other airlines, Fiji Airways is using the debut of an all-new aircraft type to launch an all-new business class. In the case of the island nation's flag-carrier, that jet is the Airbus A350 – due for delivery in November – and that seat is a premium pew based on the popular Collins Aerospace 'Super Diamond' design.
These visualisation renders show a clean cabin design with touches of woodgrain and cream, although everything will no doubt look better in real life once Fiji Airways adds touches such as the patterned cushions shown below in the airline's current Airbus A330 – which of course has a 2-2-2 layout, compared to the 1-2-1 configuration of the A350.
Fiji Airways' Airbus A350s will sport 33 fully-flat business class seats with travel-friendly traits such as added personal storage space and extra-large video screens, while the 1-2-1 layout boosts privacy. Inflight WiFi will also be available to all passengers.
The first of Fiji Airways' two Airbus A350 is due for delivery in late November, with the second to follow shortly after. Both jets will be rostered onto flights to Sydney and Los Angeles from December, and will expand the airline's scope rather than replace the Airbus A330s.
Fiji Airways is a partner with Qantas through its status as a Oneworld Connect member of the Oneworld airline alliance, unlocking valuable perks for eligible Qantas Frequent Flyer cardholders taking Fiji Airways flights.
