Cebu Pacific Packs 'em in on the A330

RSS

Cebu Pacific of the Philippines today took delivery of its first Airbus A330-300. The airline has four on order, and this is their first widebody. Cebu plans to open up routes to the Middle East and "wherever there is a Filippino community". What's unusual about their A330s is the configuration, in 436 all-economy. Yes, 436 ! Most operators fly with around 300 seats, usually in two classes. The current highest density is 396 offered by AirAsia X and Thomas Cook (Scandinavia).

Not far behind Cebu's offering is Philippine Airlines, who plan to fly their soon-to-be-delivered A330-300's in a 414 all-economy layout.
