They will be configured to accommodate 4 seats in First Class, 31 seats in Business Class, and 251 seats in Economy Class (286 seats in total) after MAB CEO, Peter Bellew said premium economy would erode our business product and revenues.

The aircraft would feature a premium heavy configuration, to further distinguish the airline from the competition of LCCs in the region.
