Etihad to launch 'all economy' service

Etihad Airways announced (05-Aug-2010) plans to introduce its first "all economy"-class aircraft to its fleet in Oct-2010. The two A320s will be configured with 162 economy-class seats (with 32-inch pitch), an increase of 42 from the current economy capacity. The all-economy aircraft will operate to short-haul Etihad destinations, which have high demand for economy traffic and low demand for premium traffic. Initially these will be Alexandria, Calicut, Colombo, Damascus, Doha and Thiruvananthapuram. Plans are in place to expand the all-economy fleet to 10 A320 aircraft. [more]
