Cathay Pacific is upgrading its business class seating across the entire long haul fleet.
New business class seat
The new business class product has been rolled out on the B777-300ER and A330s and the old product will remain on the rest of the fleet. The new seat reclines to fully flat with extra width when sleeping. The seat has a lie-flat length of 82 inches (just over 2 metres) and features extra personal storage space. The seat, once reclined offers greater pricvacy than the old product.
The seat also features a 15-inch TV with Audio and Video on Demand with a rotating library of 100 movies, 500 TV shows, 888 music CDs, 22 radio channels, and 70 games – and with 9 languages represented with a noise-cancelling headset assures a more enjoyable listening experience.
The entertainment control panel includes a multi-port connector that lets you connect your own electronic devices, including the iPod and iPhone, and stream audio and video content to your personal TV display – which you control through your own device.
Old business class seat
The old or existing business class cabin features fully flat beds, with the seat converting electronically into a 78-inch long by 23.5-inch wide bed. There is also a two-way massage function and lumbar support.
Other features include a 15-inch screen with noise-reducing headset, storage space and a 110V AC power supply. Business class seats are fitted in a herringbone layout, giving each passenger unrestricted aisle access.

With a 4 hour layover, I made my way to the wing lounge and had a shower - unfortunately the water was tepid and the shower unsatisfactory. I began to wander... more
The Cathay lounges in HKG are very stylish and not too busy. Their Solus seat is a very clever device and the washrooms are excellent, especially the showers. A lot has been said against the (now) old business class on Cathay and having seen how good the new product is I would say the old one looks poor by comparison but it's still ahead of many carriers in that it... more
