The cabin will be arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration, meaning all seats provide direct access to the aisle. Dimensions for the seats have not yet been revealed.
Meanwhile, the airline has decided to go for a completely different seat design on its B787-9, with the Dreamliner instead featuring the Zodiac Cirrus seat – commonly seen on Cathay Pacific and American Airlines aircraft.
With a total of 28 seats, Vietnam Airlines has configured it B787-9 business cabin with a 1-2-1 layout. Each seat will come with a 42-inch pitch, and a 15.4-inch IFE screen.
Both the Sogerma Solstys (A350) and Cirrus (B787) seat can be reclined into a fully-flat bed.
Vietnam Airlines also has a premium economy cabin, which the company brands as Deluxe Economy. Details about the A350 XWB's version have not been released, but design-wise, it is expected to be identical to that on the B787-9.
The Dreamliner will offer 35 seats in Deluxe Economy sporting a 2-3-2 layout. Along with a 42-inch seat pitch, the product will offer a 10.6-inch IFE screen.
Finally, economy seats on both aircraft have been arranged in a 3-3-3 layout. Personal televisions are available on all seats in coach.
