Air Asia to be First Low Cost Carrier to Offer Lie-Flat Seats

23 February 2010

In order to remain competitive, Air Asia will be the first low cost carrier to offer lie-flat, first-class seats on their long-haul flight from London to Kuala Lumpur. They have recently installed 12 on their A330s and 18 on the A340s, cutting the number of passenger capacity of these flights. Don't expect anything too fancy, there will not be any five-star dining or even an entertainment center. (Air Asia will explore portable entertainment devices.) There is no exact date when the modified planes will be taking off, but Air Asia says sometimes in June. [Jaunted]
