Here’s a look at Eva Airways’ soon-to-be-delivered Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which will feature an all-new generation of business-class seats.

The Taiwanese carrier is expected to receive its first Dreamliner on October 2, with its maiden flight taking place by the end of next month on its TaipeiHong Kong route, before extending services to Japan upon delivery of its second aircraft.

Developed by Designworks, which is a part of the BMW Group, the seats in Royal Laurel Class (the carrier’s equivalent of business class) can recline to full-flat beds that are 193cm long and 58.4cm wide.

Other features include an 18-inch high-definition touchscreen monitor, built-in storage cabinets, extra-large fold-out tables, adjustable privacy panels, as well as power and USB ports.

Johannes Lampela, design director at Designworks’ studio in Los Angeles said of the seat design: “Our goal was to take a proven seat platform and make it unique to EVA. From privacy, service, interaction, stowage, and amenities, we explored the holistic passenger experience.”

Configured in a 1-2-1 layout, the airline’s new Dreamliners will feature 26 seats in its business-class cabin. Meanwhile, the economy cabin will have 278 seats, which are with leather headrests and a 12-inch touchscreen monitor.
