Hong Kong Airlines has put its not so comfortable A320s in service, on Hong Kong Express (which has slightly better padded seats – although it doesn’t look like it – on its B737s).
Here is a picture of Hong Kong Express Economy Class:
Here is a picture of the smuggled aircraft’s economy class:
These still have comfortable recline and pretty tuff seats, and I’ve seen them when I went to Taichung on UO 182 last August.

It’s very true that Hong Kong Airlines’ Business Class is just a glorified economy seat. But is it worth the fares? Let’s see:
Let’s use HX 356 (HKG – TYN) as an example.
- Economy Class HKD$1250
- Business Class HKD$3870
Would you give an extra 210% for adjustable headrests, slightly better service, an exclusive cabin, a little more recline and PTVS (Hong Kong Airline News even doubts that)? Business Class on Hong Kong Airlines is, well, more luxurious than Economy Class, but still, we don’t think it’s worth it.
