The New Zealand Herald is reporting that Samoa Air, which recently began a pay-by-weight system, is now creating an Executive Row (XL) of seats with more space. Oh, and a ramp for boarding.
Somoa’s Chief Executive Chris Langton told the Herald:
“We’re in the process of changing the space between the seats. What we’ve done is created what we call the executive row, where they’ve got an extra 14 inches (35cm) between the seats. There’s also a ramp so people have easier access. They’ve got added space as there’s no [arm] rest between the seats. It’s basically like a two- or three-person sofa,”
But what I don’t understand, since the biggest aircraft they fly is the Britten Norman Islander (BN2A), is the seating doesn’t have arm rests anyway. Or seats for that matter, just benches. Has anyone flown on Samoa Air? And what do you think of their pay-by-weight system?
