Brussels has unveiled a minor adjustment to their long-haul passenger cabins by adding an Economy Plus section.   The Economy Plus seats are the same seats as the normal Economy class, however seat pitch and recline angle have been increased for improved comfort.    Specifically, pitch has been increased by approximately 3-4 inches, and the recline angle of the seat has been increased from 8 degrees to 20 degrees.  The Economy Plus section will take up the first 4 rows of the Economy cabin aboard their A330s serving North America and Africa.

Y+ 2

To mark the introduction of this new seat plan, SN has randomly awarded 20,000 passengers traveling in July and August a complimentary upgrade from Economy to Economy Plus.   Otherwise, the upgrade cost from ‘Y’ to ‘Y+’ will be a flat €120 per segment.   For a limited time however, SN is offering this upgrade for only €99 each way.  The upgrade is available from any Economy Class fare.

A couple of amenities come with Y+ as well.   Passengers will be offered a glass of champagne before departure, an amenity kit, and a box of chocolates.
