Malaysia Airlines offers business class improvements in new Airbus A330-300

Business class travelers will soon be able to enjoy improved amenities when they fly on new Airbus A330-300 jets operated by Malaysia Airlines, reports Business Traveller.

Malaysia Airlines - which is one of just seven carriers on Earth to have earned a five-star rating from airline evaluator Skytrax - revamped their previous A330-300 layout to provide passengers with more room. Overall, the planes will have space for 36 people in their business class cabins.

To help its premium passengers feel more comfortable, Malaysia Airlines has installed new business class seats that are 20 inches wide, 1.5 inches wider than those on older versions of the jet. Additionally, seats in the business class cabin have increased their pitch from 45 to 60 inches, meaning that travelers get more than a foot of extra legroom.

Other new features in the business class cabin include a six-way adjustable headrest, a power plug, a USB port and mood lighting. The jet has been fitted with larger windows to help make it feel more spacious, while passengers can reduce clutter by placing their belongings in larger stowage bins. During their journey, they will also be able to enjoy a new advanced in-flight entertainment system.
