The new Airbus is equipped with two classes: economy and business. The new aircraft seats 196 passengers in the economy seats and 20 passengers in business class.

The Business Class seats offer a 17-inch entertainment screen, conversion to a full flat bed, a buddy seat and electronically controlled back and leg rests.
