The front cabin, with all 30 biz seats, was airy and spacious and featured an unusual color scheme, much in keeping with the colors of the country it represented.

The seating in business class is 1-2-1 with the seats staggered slightly so that the centre pair are closer together in one aisle and then further away in the next, while the window seats are either next to the window and protected from the aisle, or on the aisle.

The seat has several pre-set positions or you can alter it minutely by pressing various buttons.

There’s a massage function and on the same panel options for mood lighting and a reading light as well.

On another panels there are further controls for various lights.

Inflight entertainment was extremely limited, with only 12 films in total and seven television programmes (more will be added, and on the A330-200 there was a wider choice).

There is good wifi and lots of charging – not only a universal plug for UK, US and EU plugs, but also a USB socket by the side of the IFE screen and another by the power point along with the three-pronged socket for the noise cancelling headphones.
