Anyone has any leak on how these seats look and feel like? Personally, I am not a fan of CX regional business class seat on B777 and some net news indicate this premium economy class looks like such, I am deeply worried and concern and hope not to be disappointed??
The seats are better in my view than the current regional business class. The CX
PEY product is more than just the seat, the ticket also gives you some additional benefits on the ground with checkin, additional baggage allowance, and boarding priority. On the aircraft passengers will be welcomed aboard with juice and champagne like in J class, and have an enhanced onboard meal selection, and a bottle of water and additional snack choices to include more fresh fruit, energy bar and dessert. PEY passengers will also receive an amenity kit with dental kit, socks and eyeshade. Larger pillows and noise cancelling headsets will be provided.
The seats will have a large meal table, cocktail table, footrest, a 10.6" PTV, in seat power outlet, a multi-port connector for personal devices, and extra personal stowage space.
I think I read somewhere that photographs should be out early Jan, the first aircraft is due for retrofit in Feb (a 77W).

I wonder if the Y product will negatively impact food drink service in standard Y, justify a reduction in seat pitch, cuts in the AVOD, etc. etc.?
I do not think so, CX
has already committed to deploying new Y seats as well in the long haul aircraft (except 744/340 at this stage) and soon will also have internet deployed overall classes. The new long-haul Y seat will feature a cradle mechanism to enhance the level of comfort in the recline position, the latest high-resolution touch-screen personal televisions, a USB outlet and an iPod/iPhone outlet that allows passengers to connect their own mobile devices to view content through the PTV.
I think the new Y seats will allow for more upgrades for those frequent CX
customers (diamond) that travel in Y to PEY , it will however reduce the number of free upgrades to J or F for those customers that purchase Y tickets. The number of PEY seats installed per aircraft will be around 30 +/- 4 depending on the type.
