BEQ has PTV's in Y class?

Post by CoyBoy »

I know their J class was upgraded to 777 standards, but according to a post in a.net quite a while ago he said the entire aircraft has PTV's, is that right?

nope..i travelled in AP-BEQ this summer...and the ptv's are available only in business class..not in econ plus or economy....but i must say the seats in economy in AP-BEQ and another A310 which too is on lease are far better than the ones in some of the other A310's...

Whats happening to the rest of the PIA A310 fleet that PIA owns ? Are they also going to get the B777 business seats as well ??

What I have heard is that PIA planes to do that but due to losses that is currently postponed... Atleast they can paint them in the new livery!

Yeah, i think because they weigh alot more than the normal C class seats and as a result more fuel is consumed.

So thats the reason for PIA not painting rest of 310 in new livery and installing those Recaro seats?

actually..the reason why the new recaro seats were installed only in one A310 was that Airbus objected to PIA's aleration of the interior that had been provided initially by airbus industries...so PIA has to puit a hold on its interior deco plans...
