What Do We All Think About Aeroflot’s New Business Class Seats?

What Do We All Think About Aeroflot’s New Business Class Seats?
Joe Cortez

Flyers aboard Russian carrier Aeroflot will soon have a new business class experience to look forward to. In pictures posted to a Danish website, the airline debuted their seating options for both business class and premium economy.

If you’re planning on flying Aeroflot in 2020, you’ll want to be sure to book a flight aboard the carrier’s new Airbus A350 based on their recently released photos. First published by InsideFlyer.dk, the Russian airline debuted the premium cabins flyers will find aboard the first flights.

Complete premium cabin experiences for the Aeroflot A350

With 22 Airbus A350 airframes on order, flyers will have plenty of opportunities to travel in style with the new business class seating. Following current trends from British Airways and others, the 1-2-1 configured cabin includes doors at each suite, allowing flyers additional privacy as they travel.

While not confirmed, each seat appears to be lie-flat, with plenty of enclosure and compartments for storing personal items in flight.

The business-class experience will be complemented with a bar and lounge area in the cabin, offering snacks and beverages on demand. The experience is on par with other European carriers who wish to create a bespoke experience aboard their aircraft.

In premium economy, flyers will have more room to stretch out with wider seats in a 3-3-3 configuration. The cabin arrangement is on par with other international airlines operating throughout Europe.1

Flying the Aeroflot A350 in 2020

Those who want to experience the new cabin for themselves will have plenty of opportunities to do so in the coming year. Aeroflot is planning to accept eight A350 aircraft into its fleet in 2020, with the remaining delivered over the next several years.

According to Sam Chui, the new aircraft will serve two American markets in the coming year: John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in March 2020, and Miami International Airport (MIA) by June 2020. The aircraft will also serve some intra-European routes, with the airline set to fly the next-generation airframe between Copenhagen and Moscow next year.

    They look very similar to the ‘suites’ on Delta One, and other visual similarities exist between them and seats I have experienced on other airlines. The premium economy seats also look similar to those on AA and other airlines. I would not be surprised if same seat manufacturers supply Aeroflot with seats.

    The picture for premium economy says 3-3-3 seating, but the picture shows 2 seats on the window side.
    Which is correct?

    The author is incorrect about Premium Economy. Aeroflot P.E. configuration is 2-2-2. The business class suites remain to be tested for comfort. The appearance seems to emulate the Qatari Q-Suites, and not “other European airlines”.

    I don’t think the Premier Economy is in 3-3-3 configuration. That would be coach. Premier Economy would be more likely to be 2-4-2.
