Air Tahiti Nui will launch its new $17m cabin reconfiguration and entertainment system on board its fleet of A340-300s in April 2013. By June three of its aircraft will host the updated system and new interiors. The new design will replace the airline’s traditional three-class layout and will feature two classes of service – an expanded ‘Poerava’ business class and an upgraded class ‘Moana’. The ‘Poerava’ class will increase its seat capacity from 24 to 32 and the new ‘Sogerma’ lie-flat seats with provide more space and passenger comfort. The economy class will feature new lightweight seats while retaining the popular two-four-two seating configuration. The new cabins will also host a new inflight entertainment system with on-demand touch-screen access to nearly 50 movies and TV programmes as well as magazines, games and music.
