According to Australian Business Traveller, Aer Lingus will be offering lie-flat business seats on their new Airbus A321LR. Their first of 14 aircrafts will be set in traffic from June next year.
Although the new aircrafts primarily will serve routes to North America, on return to Dublin an estimated eight of the single-aisle jets will be dispatched to key European cities, according to Australian Business Traveller
- We will have 15 aircraft arriving before 5am across the Atlantic each day,” explains Aer Lingus CEO Stephen Kavanagh, but instead of those jets sitting on the ground in Dublin for almost half a day they will continue through to the likes of London, Paris, Amsterdam and Barcelona.
- – When we have the LRs going on into Europe, they will now have a business cabin with full lie-flat seat, Kavanagh says to Australian Business Traveller.
