Vistara might cut business-class seats

Mumbai: Vistara might halve the number of business class seats in Airbus A320 aircraft, which it will induct early next year, as it struggles to fill up the front end of its flights. The airline is likely to keep constant the number of premium economy seats and plans to increase the number of economy class seats, aviation sources said.

At present, Vistara has six Airbus A320s in a three class configuration. The revised  configuration could see Vistara aircraft with eight business class seats instead of 16, while premium economy seats would remain unchanged at 36. Economy class will have more seats (from 96 now).

The airline said it would receive three more aircraft by December-end.  Changes in cabin configurations, according to sources, are expected from the 10th aircraft that is expected in early 2016. Vistara plans to induct 20 A320s by 2018.
