When we heard about the Vantage seat, we were curious about XL Vantage.

  • Does Ethiopian Air have these type seating for a 4 person group traveling from NJ/NY on a 5 country tour of Africa which will also include London and Paris. However we would like to do the london to paris trip by train, them paris – Cairo – Accra – Lusaka – Addis – Amsredam – Home.
    No final date has yet been set, but would love some advice on best time of year for African travel..

    • Dear Hubert,
      according to what we have found, it depends on the aircraft you are going to fly with. For example, Ethiopian Airlines Business Class on Boeing 787 is designed on a 2-2-2 regularly spaced or in reverse herringbone configuration.
      The type of seating for 4, Qsuites, are exclusively available on Qatar Airways flights. Also, here is a “Pro-tip” from us- you can check seatguru.com to find out the seat map and seat configurations.

  • For korean air some A330’s and all dreamliners also have the apex suites. They just need to update the a380’s with the apex suites.
