LATAM unveils new Premium Business

Thu Aug 29, 2019 8:42 am

Hi, just came across this press release of LATAM, unveiling officially their new Premium Business class on their first B777-300ER:

Also the Airbus fleet will receive a new interior with Reacaro seats and wireless on-board entertainment system. However, I do miss a word on their B787 fleet, but according to the PR: "long-range fleet that will be renovated with new cabins and travel experience over the next two years.". So will we see this new Business Class as well on the B787 soon? When will the first B787 reconfigured, on which routes?

Looks good. Isn't that the same as the QF seat on their 787-9?

The video does show the new seats on a 787, so presumably it will come to the 787 fleet. My Spanish isn't nearly good enough to understand the text in the video.
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

Yeah it is, Vantage XL, with plenty of other airlines also making the pick.

Personally I love Vantage XL - having been on three different carriers with the seat I personally perfer this one to the reverse herribone.

Are you sure it's Vantage XL? There are couple seats. I have never seen Vantage XL with this arrangement.

It's surprising because they refreshed their cabins very recently. Now the are refurbishing the fleet again. I wonder why they did choose 1-2-1 seats in their recent business refresh.

The video dates from 03 January 2019... Wasn't that unveiled months ago?

Correct. LATAM has had a 767 flying in this config for many months now. The 77W has also been flying with it for a few weeks.

The config has been announced a while ago and the first renovated 767 has been flying for a few months now (mainly Peru routes). The first 77W (PT-MUD) has also been flying for a month now (mainly GRU-MAD). But the event mentioned by the OP was the official launch in Brazil, held inside the new line maintenance hangar at GRU.

In this event they not only "launched" the new seats, but announced as well the new hard/soft products fleetwide.
