Malaysia Airlines today unveiled the carrier’s all-new business class, roughly two months after introducing its new holding company, Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB). The new cabins will be featured in its Airbus A330 aircraft starting April 2016, accommodating 27 passengers in a 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 seating configuration. Seats are 20.6-inch wide and come with the ability to turn into a fully flat 76-inch bed—for which soft, comfortable bed linen will be available—while a variety of in-flight entertainment can be enjoyed on a 16-inch Panasonic touch screen. With a spacious 43-inch seat pitch, travelers are also granted more room to relax or work throughout the flight.
