defining the ultimate in luxury air travel, foster and partners have refurbished the cathay pacific first class cabins. premium passengers will now be exclusively treated to a seamless, contemporary design that is translated through the whole experience. the sense of sophistication begins with a rich burgundy carpet, and hand crafted sculptural works by maria lobo and linda leviton. the overall atmosphere is soothing and relaxed, with the personal suites offering high levels of privacy. the quality craftsmanship translates through to the materials, with high-gloss finishes and natural, soft-toned leather interiors. comfortable seats with extra-padded armrests let passengers sit back and enjoy the journey.

the tactile, sensory experience offers the most up to date in airplane technology. designed especially for cathay pacific, each cabin includes an LCD touchscreen controller, which is able to make the seat recline, adjust back support and turn lights on and off all by the touch of a button. designed to ensure that passengers can obtain a proper night’s sleep, the seat easily transforms into a fully supported bed whose thick mattress is outfitted with duvets, pillow and cushions. an organic cotton sleep suit is also provided for traveler comfort. for guests who don’t feel like sleeping, a widescreen personal TV helps passengers to unwind, accompanied by BOSE noise cancelling headphones. the convenient technology dock also contains a multi USB connector, which not only connects to the TV but also ensures that all devices are fully recharged on arrival. the entire refresh is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014, with the first boeing 777-300ER aircrafts completed this year.
