Austrian Airlines, a Lufthansa subsidiary, has upgraded the economy and business class cabins on its entire long-haul fleet.
The upgrades of economy and business class cabins on its 10 Boeing 777-300ERs and Boeing 767-300ERs include improved new in-flight entertainment systems and fully-flat bed convertible seats in business class.
The airline has installed a total of 2,538 new seats in its four Boeing 777 and six Boeing 767 aircraft. The new seating layout in the 777’s business class provides direct aisle access for four of the five passengers in each row while the new Business Class layout in Boeing 767s offers direct aisle access to every passenger.
The airline says that the cabin reconfiguration has increased customer satisfaction by 31 percent among long-haul passengers since its introduction.
In North America, Austrian Airlines operates flights to Vienna from Chicago, New York’s JFK, Washington DC and Toronto.
