As Malaysia Airlines starts to prepare to take the company’s first Airbus A350 on its maiden passenger flight, new images are emerging of what passengers can expect.
New details have emerged about what the airline will feature on the jet, which has leased six of the new state of the art planes to replace its current Airbus A380 fleet. It will be able to seat around 286 passengers, and will be the first airline in Asia to feature a First Class seating with four seats in the forward cabin. It has released details on what travelers can expect when via a dedicated A350 website.
Among the features passengers can expect include larger windows and inflight wi-fi. Another key feature will be a new LED lighting system to help reduce jetlag on long-haul routes the airline plans to use the A350s on.
Other features will include fully enclosed suites for First Class passengers with higher partition walls and a sliding door.
The airline will first introduce the new aircraft to passengers heading from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok and Penang on December 9. It will then be introduced to flights to Singapore on December 10, followed by the flights from Kuala Lumpur to London in January 2018.
