Hong Kong Airlines Fleet Airbus A350-900 Details and Pictures. Currently, Hong Kong Airlines only operates 1 XWB aircraft Airbus A350-900.
Hong Kong Airlines took delivery of its first A350-900 in September 2017.
Hong Kong Airlines (HKA) will transfer purchase rights of two Airbus A350-900s to sister company Hainan Airlines for free, as the latter moves to ramp up capacity and growth.
To help reduce costs, Hong Kong Airlines has decided to return an A350 (Tail number B-LGD) to France for storage, as reported by CAPA.
Hong Kong Airlines Fleet Airbus A350-900 Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout
Hong Kong Airlines Airbus A350-900 aircraft operates on long-haul flights trans-Pacific flights.
The aircraft is configured with 33 Business Class seats that transform into fully-flat beds and 301 standard Economy Class seats.
Business Class seats are configured in a 1-2-1 arrangement.
A separate section named Economy Comfort offering seats with additional legroom and Extra Legroom Seats, also offering additional legroom, are available for selection for an additional fee.
There is no first class, and no premium economy.
However, there are several rows of more- legroom economy at the front of the cabin.
On its website, the airline says its economy seats offer three different pitches: 31, 32 and 34 inches. Seats are configured 3-3-3.
In business class, the BEST seats for single flyers are window seats on even numbered rows.
For couples, the best seats are in the center of odd-numbered rows.
Seats are configured 1-2-1 and all offer direct aisle access.
Wi-fi is available on Hong Kong Airlines’ A350s.
The ottoman and entertainment screen in this configuration are located right next to the seat in front of you.
The console to the side of the seat has an exposed storage compartment (where the headphones were hanging), an entertainment controller, a reading light, and two USB outlets.
The counter itself was large enough to place a laptop on, and on the side of the counter were the seat controls, which were easy to use.
Underneath that console and to the side was an armrest, as well as a literature pocket.
While these types of staggered seats are often pretty standardized across airlines, one thing that made this configuration unique was that the seat was much wider than usual.
For example, as you’ll see with the ottoman, there was additional padding that was maybe six inches wide to the side of the seat.
This meant you had a significantly larger sleeping surface.
Economy class was split across two large cabins of almost completely 3-3-3 seating.
The first 12 to 13 rows of economy were Economy Comfort seating.
These 102 seats had 34 inches of pitch.
Behind these extra-legroom seats were 193 standard economy seats with 32 inches of pitch.
All of these seats measured 18 inches between armrests, had a seatback fold-down, bifold tray table and a literature pouch between the inflight-entertainment screen and tray table (instead of below the tray table) to maximize legroom.
Each economy seat had an headrest that could adjust vertically and had folding wings to cradle your neck or head while you slept.
The only exception to the 3-3-3 arrangement was Row 51, the emergency exit and bulkhead row.
This row was arranged 2-3-2 with no window seat on either side.
This arrangement created the only two pairs of seats on the aircraft: 51B and 51 C, and 51J and 51H.
And it created two solo seats that had the distinction of being both window and quasi-aisle seats, 52A and 52K.
In the middle of the bulkhead row were the bassinet seats, 51D to 51G. Each of these seats had at least one thick and immovable armrest, with seats 51C, 51G and 51J being squeezed by thick armrests on either side — lowering the seat width to 17.5 inches.
The seats with one firm armrest (51B, 51D, 51E, 51H, 52A and 52K) measured 17.75 inches between armrests.
All armrest-stowed tray tables were small bifold tables measuring 16.5 inches by 9 inches.
Each seat, including the exit rows and bulkheads, had a 9-inch inflight entertainment screen.
Under the screen were a headphone jack (one-prong) and a USB outlet.
