Airbus Promises Higher Seat Count For A320neo

By 2020 the A320neo will be 20 per cent more efficient than its current iteration, Airbus has promised ahead of the aircraft’s first flight tomorrow. The A320neo is intended to be 15 per cent more efficient when it enters service next year, but Airbus expects to improve that figure, on a fuel-burn-per-seat basis, through cabin innovations such as slimmer seats and a redesigned rear lavatory and galley. Authorities will recertify the A320 family with an increased seats limit before next year.
