Aer Lingus reveals new business class seats

August 14, 2014 |

The Irish carrier Aer Lingus recently unveiled its business class seats. According to Skift, the airline's business cabins will be refitted in January 2015 as part of a two phase project to provide travelers with a better flying experience.

The upgrades are expected to be complete by the end of March 2015. Americans going on business travel who fly with the airline will have access to lay-flat beds as well as pre-U.S. customs in Ireland, allowing travelers to move much quicker through U.S. airports.

Skift reported that the seats are the same as those found on JetBlue, Brussels Airlines and what's in the Thompson​ Aero Vantage Suite. The beds are nearly 7 feet long and offer fliers with storage for their belongings, space and privacy. 

Those traveling to and from John F. Kennedy International Airport and Logan International Airport can take advantage of eating a meal before boarding. There is a quiet zone on night flights and 90 percent of seats have direct access to the aisle.

Wi-Fi and a mobile network will be available when the upgrades are completed as well as on-demand food and beverage service, in-flight entertainment and noise-cancelling headphones.
