Upgraded C-class On OS 320

Hi there,

i have travelled last Saturday from VIE to BRU on OS A320 (OE-LBN). I was surprised to find an upgraded C-class cabin. Not the usual 'Y-class with empty middle seat', but a real business seat in a 2-2 config with lots of legroom.

I suppose it was one of the A320's OS uses for longer routes like DXB, RUH/JED,...

Anyone can tell how much/which A320's have been reconfigured in this config? Are there any 319's or 321's with similar lay out?

Finally, what are the destinations receiving these aircraft?

Thanks for clearing this out.

Surely you don't mean DUBLIN, but DUBAI (=DXB)?

Yes, of course I meant DXB. Stupid me...
Btw, all flights except CAI are only three or four weekly.

Sorry, no pics, but I would would not be surprised if it were the old business seats from their A330/340 in a new jacket. The seats looked quite like this, but in a new color.

OE-LBN and OE-LBO were the first ones to be modified. Inflight config is 24 seats in J (2X2 config) and 102 Y seats.
Service in J class includes starters, main course, desert, cheese. All meals hand served, not on a tray or trolley with four different kinds of coffee plus Arabian coffee. Three different hot meals to choose from. I have seen the pics of the infight J cabin & food. And they look phenomenal!
For IFE, each passenger gets a portable video screen, where about 80 films are stored plus additional entertainment.

Great seats for an A320!
I hope one day they begin service to Larnaca...
