Bombardier delivers first dual-class 86-seat Q400

21 JULY, 2017 Bombardier has delivered its first dual-class 86-seat Q400 turboprop, handing over the aircraft to Philippine Airlines on 20 July.

PAL became the first customer for the configuration in December 2016 when it signed deals that included firm order for five 86-seat Q400s and purchase rights for an additional seven aircraft. The carrier recently converted those seven options to firm orders at the Paris air show.

PAL has chosen to outfit their aircraft with 10 premium seats with 33in pitch and 76 economy seats with 29in pitch.

Thai low-cost carrier Nok Air already operates seven 86-seat Q400s, albeit in an all-economy configuration. It was the launch customer for the high density variant of the aircraft, which typically carries 76 or 78 passengers.

Bombardier will deliver five Q400s to PAL this year and seven in 2018, Flight Fleets Analyzer shows.

Bombardier has been marketing a 90-seat all-economy variant of the turboprop since February 2016, but has yet to land any customers for the denser configuration.
