EasyJet Increasing Number of Seats in New Crop of Planes

Airline passengers have clamored for more legroom and space to breath inside airplanes, but low-budget English airline EasyJet is going in the opposite direction by adding even more seats to its next crop of airplane deliveries.

According to a statement from EasyJet, all future deliveries of the Airbus A320 aircraft to the company will be fitted with 186 seats, six more than standard models of the plane. All of EasyJet’s existing A320 aircrafts will retrofitted with the six additional seats and the other necessary changes starting in winter 2016.

In a press release from Airbus regarding the delivery of a plane with the same number of seats to a different airline, the space needed for six additional seats in the Vueling airline edition of the aircraft were found via cutting down from two bathrooms to one and using a Space-Flex module in the back of the plane for flight attendants.

While Airbus cut Vueling's bathrooms down to just one in certain planes, EasyJet is reporting it will still boast two bathrooms aboard its new and existing Airbus A320 aircrafts.

As for the Space-Flex module, it is a structure in the back of the airplane used by flight attendants to store all the amenities passengers will need during their journey in the most space-efficient way possible.
