These three luxurious new aircraft are EVA’s first A330-300s. Each one is configured with 30 seats in Premium Laurel Class and 279 in Economy Class. The in-seat audio video on demand (AVOD) entertainment system has been updated so that, along with the Hello Kitty theme, passengers enjoy a simpler, more user-friendly interface and upgrades that enhance use of personal devices. The 15.4-inch touch screen enables passengers to browse photos and listen to their favorite music using Photo Viewer, PDF viewer and Media Player on personal devices.
Premium Laurel Class seats easily convert into a nearly flat position and seat pitch has been increased to 62 inches (157cm). There are also 110V electrical outlets and ports for personal electronic devices that are iPod, USB and RCA compatible. Pitch in Economy Class is 32 inches (81cm) and seats are designed so that electronic boxes don’t take up space underneath them, giving passengers more legroom. There’s also a 9-inch touch screen, a 110V electrical outlet and USB port at every seat.
EVA equipped its A330-300s with the latest Panasonic eX2 AVOD. In addition to a 3D data display system that presents flight information in vibrant, colorful images, the system offers a new Connecting Gate Information (CGI) function that allows passengers to check information about connecting flights, arrival terminals and baggage carousel location.
