New seats again for short haul

Circulating on the internet recaros have been ordered, same seats as easyJet and not just for the a320 neo, to accommodate the reduced pitch. To be fair the easyJet seats are very comfy

I also found the new easyJet seats very comfortable, I was pleasantly surprised!

Kind regards

Both articles clearly state that BA will only get them on the neo 320 family aircraft. IB Will get them on their existing CEO 320 aircraft.

How easy are these to convert into a table in CE? Does anyone currently do this?

Lets hope they don't make the same mistake as previously and don't forget to install at-seat power.

Its nice these seats don't recline. Makes for less arguments and crushing of the knees.

Seriously? Up to four hours in a bolt upright seat? Is that for real?

Not quite, 15 degrees according to the manufacturer.

Up to and over. Flights to the Canaries can knock on for 5 hours if the winds/traffic conspire against you. Plus the likes of IST, DME swaps, LCA, CAI...

Fun times!

Thank god - sick to death off selfish people reclining as soon as the flight takes off. Sooner reclining seats are gone for good the better.
