KLM Introduces New Business Class Seats on Boeing 777 Fleet
KLM has introduced new World Business Class seats. The broader seats have a sliding door ensuring greater comfort and privacy. The seats and their fittings are 10-15% lighter than other business class seats in this market segment.
KLM’s new World Business Class seats were designed on the basis of extensive customer research. The new seats offer passengers more space and comfort:
All World Business Class passengers have direct access to the aisle. Every seat has a lightweight sliding door that can be easily opened and closed, so that the seat can be closed off for more privacy when working, relaxing and/or sleeping.
More personal adjustment options and user-friendly functionality, including an adjustable lower-back support and a relax setting with a subtle back-massage feature.
The seat can reclined fully flat to form a comfortable, 198cm-long bed.
There are multiple charging sockets that are easily accessible and clearly visible, and passengers also have a wireless charging option.
Passengers can stow their belongings in a lockable compartment, which also has a built-in mirror. The seat features a recessed bottle holder, so that passengers can safely leave a water bottle on their tabletop, even during turbulence.
Other World Business Class Services, including the catering concept and SkyPriority, remain unchanged.
For the new World Business Class, KLM installed Jamco Venture seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, giving all passengers direct access to the aisle. These Jamco Business Class seats were previously installed on KLM’s Boeing 787 fleet.
KLM teamed up with JAMCO to further improve the seat. The full JAMCO design, conceived in collaboration with KLM, particularly the personal cabin layout, is lighter than the previous setup, without detracting from quality, contributing to KLM’s sustainability objectives.
KLM’s entire Boeing 777-300 and 200 fleet will be retrofitted with the new World Business Class seats. This fleet will also be fitted with the latest Premium Comfort cabin. The full revamp will be completed during the course of the coming year.
