The new aircraft will come with 144 economy class seats and 12 business class seats. Traveling for several hours has become a breeze thanks to a 25% increase of space in between seats from 39 inches to 49 inches. Restful sleep has also become possible thanks to greater seat recline, from eight inches to 12 inches. The plane’s seats also come with side pockets, and as a welcome bonus, they also have USB and three-pin charging ports so that passengers can ensure that they never run out of juice for their devices.

Meanwhile the economy class seats are designed in a stylish palette of aqua and gray. Fitted with tablet and phone holders, they also come with USB charging ports.

The MAX 8 will start flying on October 30, and will serve the Singapore to Hiroshima route.

In a page taken out of the World’s Rich and Famous, the tour is combined with a stay at the finest properties in the island destinations, all for the price of US$18,000 for a seven-night, eight-day voyage. The voyage was marked with Michelin-inspired bites and the most carefully created concoctions, all served by the highly trained Cystal Skye Butlers.
