Air India to opt for business, economy class seats in A320 neos

Buoyed by rising number of business travellers, Air India will opt for two-class seat configuration in the 14 Airbus 320 neo planes to be inducted into the fleet in the coming months.
Air India is reverting to the two-class configuration after more than four years when it had decided to do away with it amid economic slowdown.
A Kuwait-based leasing firm is to provide the A320 neos (new engine option) aircraft on dry lease basis starting early next year.
These planes with 160 seats will have a two-class configuration – 12 in business class and the rest 148 in economy category, a senior Air India official said.
The 14 A320 neos will also have more “seat pitch” or seat width, compared to other airlines, the official added.
