EVA Air Introduces New "Royal Laurel Class"(J) on 789

Thu Sep 20, 2018 6:56 pm

EVA Air unveiled their newest RL class for the 789 today. They are Vantage XL seats. Dreamwork(BMW Subsidiary) has designed the J cabin for BR. It is about 76in(193cm long) when fully flat and features an 18" HD IFE screen.

Aircraft will feature 304 seats(26 in J,258 Y in a 3-3-3). Y seats are from Recaro; Teague did the design of the seats. Seat features a 12" IFE screen and a headrest that can move up to 6". No mention of seat width.

Good to see BR introduce a more modern-looking cabin.

I'm surprised that there isn't a premium economy cabin.

Aircraft is supposed to replace A332/A333 aircraft, which do not offer PE either.

I hope that they would have 2 configs for the 787-10s.. one with PEs and one without so they could fly some of the 787-10 to US! (Though I know the chance might be slim..)

EVA has a strong fleet of 777 to fly to USA destinations. I struggled to understand the need of 787 but if replacing the A330 series, that makes sense. EVA originally uses A330-200 as a replacement for their B767-300 fleet, then, they upgraded to -300 and now 787. Makes a lot of sense. Unless the aircraft is destined for long distance, EVA aircraft typically will not have PE seating.
