Scandinavian Airlines will launch a new class on its long haul flights in September. Economy Plus will be targeted at frequent flyers who are willing to pay slightly more for increased comfort and better in-flight facilities, including in-seat power supply for laptop computers. The move will coincide with the service entry of the carrier's first Airbus A340-300, with Economy Plus accounting for 24 of the 261 seats. A further nine aircraft - A340-300s or A330-300s - are on order.
