As airlines work out their ongoing strategies, Gulf Air has selected new seating for its upcoming Airbus A321LR – with the airline selecting the Recaro CL3710

The CL3710 has been used in many wide-bodied deployments, with this one of the first deployments of this seat in a narrow-body aircraft. With it being installed on Gulf Air’s Airbus A321neo, it marks the first of 29 aircraft to be equipped with the CL3710 seats, which are slated for delivery over the next five years.
The CL3710 combines lightweight material with ergonomic design, which should appeal to both airlines and long-haul passengers.
I’ve written about the award-winning CL3710 a few times on the blog (including it’s Crystal Cabin Award win in 2019).
The CL3710 design is comprised of the six-way adjustable headrest, Recaro-patented extended seat bottom, seamless flip cushion for enhanced lumbar support, and a 30-inch seat pitch.
The seat’s modular design ensures minimal maintenance and its competitive weight contributes to fuel efficiency. Since its introduction to the market in 2013, the CL3710 has equipped aircraft for nearly one dozen airlines.
Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO, Recaro Aircraft Seating said
“Gulf Air is a fantastic customer for Recaro, as we are both concentrating on expanding our footprint in the Middle East,”
“We are pleased to see our products piquing the interest of comfort-driven airlines like Gulf Air, and I am confident the CL3710 will enhance the flying experience on the A321neoLR.”
Krešimir Kučko, Gulf Air CEO said
“We are celebrating our 70th anniversary this year at Gulf Air, and we’ve got both eyes on the future,”
“Our partnership with Recaro is a sign of dedication to our passengers, as we collaborate to bring them unparalleled levels of comfort and the best service every time they fly with us.”
