Openskies opens economic class... Again!
Currently some aircraft are still flying with either 12 or 24 lie-flat seats and between 40 and 72 business class seats. Beginning June 19th, the entire OpenSkies fleet will squeeze more seats into their birds. From the front of the plane, the airline offers 20 lie-flat beds (Biz Bed), 28 comfy seats called Prem Plus (former Biz Seat), and 66 all-leather economy seats.
On-board service, irrespective of cabin, includes personal tablets for on-demand entertainment and the comfort of intimate cabins. The more premium you fly, the more personalized and elite the service gets. Not to worry, members of BA's Executive Club can earn and redeem Avios points for all 3 classes.
Chalk this up as, yet, another example of all-business class carriers fighting to survive in the highly competitive industry. Here's hoping that this evolution works and drives prices even more affordable.
