Cathay Pacific Singapore The best seats in Economy Class

The best seats in Economy Class

Australian Business Traveller reveals the best seats to pick on on the aircraft you're most likely to encounter on your travels.

This week: Economy class on Cathay Pacific's Airbus A330.
The plane

The brand new Business Class on Cathay's A330 has been getting a lot of attention recently, and we certainly liked it when we went on board in Sydney.

But at the back of the bus in Economy, the story's a little more mixed.

Airbus A330s are Cathay's usual planes for Australian routes to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Cairns.

The airline has three separate configurations for the aircraft: a regional version rarely seen in our skies, the old angled business class version, and the new business class version. However, the seats and seating layout in Economy is the same, although some aircraft have more rows than others.

The Economy Class cabin

Economy starts at row 30 and continues all the way to the back of the plane. Row numbering varies across the several cabin layouts Cathay uses -- so, no, there aren't 29 rows of business class, they've just decided that economy always starts at row 30.

There are two sections of the Economy Class cabin, one that starts at row 30 and one that starts at row 54. Both are laid out in 2-4-2 configuration.
