Air Macau A320 / A320NEO Economy Class Guide

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

A320/A321 economy class guide for Air Macau, the flagship carrier of Macau, a special administrative region of China.

Air Macau connects Japan and Macau with direct flights, so it is a very convenient airline to use when traveling to Macau.

We have summarized the interior of Air Macau's economy class cabin, facilities, services, seats/seat maps, in-flight meals, etc.

If you want to fly on Air Macau, please use this as a reference.


Boarding Air Macau flight NX855/NX856

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

This time we will be boarding Macau Air Flight NX855/NX856, a flight connecting Osaka Kansai (KIX)Macau (MFM). The flight time is short, around 4 hours, so the planes used are small A320/A320NEO aircraft.

Into the plane

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

The departure gate opened on time and the boarding process for passengers began. At first glance, I get the impression that there are more Macanese users than Japanese.

Come to think of it, we also happened to find cheap sale tickets on Air Macau and decided to go on a trip to Macau, but up until then, I hadn't really thought about traveling to Macau.

However, when I actually went on a trip to Macau, I found that there was a glittering resort area that was as good as Dubai, or even more flashy than Dubai, and there was a world heritage site with plenty of things to see. I feel that the security is very good and it is a very convenient place to travel.

And since there aren't many Japanese people, it seems like they're traveling overseas, so I think it's highly recommended as a little-known travel destination.

Macau Travel Guide Macau Travel Macau Travel Guide Macau travel guide that compiles travel and sightseeing information for Macau (Macao). We are constantly updating travel information articles about Macau, including information on tourism and travel in Macau, flights, transportation, currency, weather, etc.

However, it would be too long to write about Macau here, so I'll summarize my trip to Macau in Travel Guides to Countries Around the World, and let's get on board Macau Air Flight A320.

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Air Macau A320 / A320NEO seat map

The seat map for Air Macau A320/A320NEO is as shown above. The layout differs slightly depending on the aircraft, but the seating arrangement is business class at the front of the plane and economy class seats in a 3-3 configuration behind it.


Air Macau A320 Business Class

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

A photo of the business class seat right after entering the plane. I took this photo while passing by.

This is an A320 business class seat, but the seats are the same as economy class seats, and the center of the three rows of seats is collapsed for a side table to increase the privacy of each business class seat.

This business class style is often seen on short-term flights on European airlines, but if you had this type of seat in business class, you would probably feel a little disappointed...


Air Macau A320NEO Business Class

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

This is the business class seat of the Air Macau A320NEO aircraft that I boarded on my return flight (Macau → Osaka).

The equipment here typically features standard Business Class seats for short-haul routes. So if you're flying Business Class with Macao Airlines, it would be better to choose the newer A320NEO aircraft.


Air Macau A320 / A320NEO Economy Class

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

As you go deeper into the business class area, you will enter the economy class area. The economy class seating arrangement consists of three rows of seats on either side of the center aisle.


Air Macau economy class seat

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

This is Air Macau's economy class seat.

In terms of specifications, the seat width is just under 18 inches, which is the same as economy class seats on other airlines. The seat pitch (width of the front and back seats) is approximately 30 inches, which is also standard.

When people actually sit down...

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Here is what it looks like when a person actually sits on Air Macau's economy class seat.

This time, when we checked in at the airport counter, the ground staff asked us, [Would you like to sit in the emergency exit row?] and we answered [Yes!]

So we were assigned seats in the emergency exit row, which provided ample legroom. Additionally, the seat width was standard and comfortable.

In terms of ride comfort, it feels comparable to economy class on Japanese airlines such as ANA and JAL.

Seat recline

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

However, the recline of the seat is very limited, and the middle seat in the photo above has been reclined all the way, but as you can see, it has hardly reclined.

Well, since the flight itself was short, lasting about 4 hours, most people didn't recline their seats during boarding. In terms of atmosphere, it felt similar to taking a domestic flight, so imagining that kind of experience might be helpful.

Air macau's blanket

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Air Macau's A320/A320NEO is a short-haul flight, so seat amenities such as lumbar pillows and blankets are not provided, but if you request the flight attendant, they will bring them for you.

No personal monitor

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

A320 (top photo) / A320NEO (bottom photo) There are no personal monitors in the economy class seats, only a foldable table and a seat pocket in front.

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Contents of seat pocket

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Inside the seat pocket are a duty-free pamphlet, Air Macau Magazine, an etiquette bag, and an in-flight safety booklet.

Folding table

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

A foldable table used when eating meals onboard. Please make sure to check if the angle is not tilted before using it.

...The reason being, on the outbound flight, the table at Mizuki's seat was poorly maintained, and the angle was significantly downward. Without knowing this, when I placed an apple juice on the table, the cup slid off, resulting in a tragic event where Mizuki's clothes were covered in juice (lol).

I think it's probably just a coincidence, but be careful when using it.

Armrest

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

The armrest is equipped with a controller for in-flight announcements. Depending on the equipment, earphones may be attached to the top of the armrest or on the side, but earphones are not provided.

Air Macau newspaper service

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Newspaper service is also available in Economy Class on Air Macau. After boarding and before the plane takes off, flight attendants will be passing around with newspapers, so if you need them, you can ask them. However, the newspapers are in Chinese.

I can read it with Google Translate

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

For this Chinese newspaper, if you download the Chinese (simplified/traditional) and Japanese data using the Google Translate app and hold it up to Google Lens, it will translate and display parts of it in Japanese, so you can see what it says. I can roughly understand it.

When boarding Air Macau, you may be able to enjoy your flight even more if you have the Google Translate app handy.

USB charging

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Air Macau's A320NEO aircraft are equipped with USB charging ports in the footwells even in economy class. Older A320 aircraft may not have this USB charging port, so if you're concerned about your smartphone's battery life, don't forget to bring an in-flight rechargeable battery.

Blower and reading light

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

The ceiling of the seat is equipped with a fan, reading light, and attendant button for the flight attendant.

equipment toilet

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

There are restrooms onboard airplanes, one for business class at the front and one for economy class at the back. When I observed Air Macau's restrooms during the flight, I noticed that flight attendants frequently went inside to clean them, so they should be comfortable to use during the flight.

The restrooms are equipped with diaper changing tables, paper cups, and other supplies, but there are no toothbrushing kits. If you want to brush your teeth after your in-flight meal, prepare your own.

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Air Macau in-flight safety video

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

After all passengers have boarded and boarding is complete, the in-flight safety video is shown on monitors installed in the ceiling of the aircraft. Macao Airlines' in-flight safety video lacks humor and is presented in a straightforward and serious manner.However, I think this is very good. Because humor has nothing to do with emergencies.

Well, it's not interesting to watch just because it's serious (lol)


Air Macau A320 takes to the skies

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

After completing the in-flight safety video, the Air Macau A320 carrying us finally took to the skies. A beautiful view of clouds outside the airplane window.

When I see the view of the plane's tail reflected in the sky, I feel even more excited that I'm going on a trip.


Air Macau in-flight WIFI

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Once the aircraft enters a stable route and the seatbelt sign is turned off, you can use the WIFI service onboard Air Macau's aircraft.

It's very easy to use; just leave your smartphone in airplane mode, turn on WiFi, and connect to Air Macau. Then, open your browser and access [ife.airmacau.com.mo] to enjoy flight information, video programs, and other in-flight entertainment.

This in-flight WiFi service allows your smartphone to serve as your personal monitor, so it may be reasonable not to have a personal monitor at your seat.

However, depending on the flight, this WiFi service may not work well, so don't get your hopes too high.


Air Macau A320 / A320NEO economy class cabin view

I took a 360-degree photo of the inside of an Air Macau flight. The picture above is of the outbound flight NX855 (KIX→MFM), and the picture below is of the return flight NX856 (MFM→KIX).The inside of the plane was extremely peaceful. The outbound flight had a occupancy rate of 50% to 60%, but the return flight had about 80% of seats occupied.


In-flight meal time has arrived!

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

In-flight meal service begins shortly after entering a stable route. There is no menu for Air Macau's in-flight meals, but rather a traditional in-flight meal service where you choose one of two menus.

Please note that Air Macau's flights to and from Japan have two Japanese flight attendants on board both the outbound and return flights, so you don't have to worry about language issues.

What does Air Macau's in-flight meal taste like?

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Now, what I'm curious about is the taste of Air Macau's in-flight meals. Please refer to the article below for details on the in-flight meals in Macau Air Economy Class, but I give them a high rating in terms of taste. Mizuki feels normal.

[Air Macau Guide] Air Macau's in-flight meals Airlines [Air Macau Guide] Air Macau's in-flight meals Air Macau is not a very famous airline in Japan, so I am very curious about what the in-flight meals are like when I fly, so I actually tried Macau Airlines' economy class. I boarded the plane and checked out the contents and taste of the in-flight meals.

One thing I can tell you about airplane food is that the food on flights departing from Japan is usually delicious, while the food on flights departing overseas is often unpalatable. However, personally, I feel that the in-flight meals on Air Macau flights departing from Macau were reasonably delicious. for your information.

It is comfortable to wear a mask on a dry plane.

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

Once your in-flight meal is finished, all you have to do is enjoy the flight as you please until you reach your destination.

Additionally, the inside of an airplane is dry and many passengers are coughing, so wearing a mask will help you enjoy your flight with peace of mind and comfort.

If you catch a cold on this plane, your trip will be ruined once you arrive, so we recommend wearing a mask on this plane.

According to Mizuki, a mask that is disposable and can humidify [a mask with a humidifying filter (link is from Amazon)] is a good idea, so if you have trouble choosing a mask, use it as a reference.


Air Macau Economy Class Drink Service

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

On Macao Airlines flights, even after the meal service is over, cabin crew members make rounds with drinks several times. If you feel like having a beverage such as tea or green tea, you can request it, so don't hesitate to ask when you want something to drink.

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

The plane arrives at its destination

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

After about 4 hours of flight, we arrived at our destination. My air travel on Air Macau A320/A320NEO has ended. thank you for your hard work!

This Air Macau flight was short for an overseas travel flight, and before I knew it I had arrived in Macau in no time, but the flight content was as expected as Air Macau is a legacy carrier, so it was solid. It was very good.


Air Macau A320 / A320NEO Economy Class Summary

[Air Macau] A320 Economy Class Guide

How did you like the Air Macau A320 / A320NEO Economy Class Guide?

Air Macau is an airline that I haven't heard much about in Japan, so when I first heard about it, I thought it was an LCC-like plane, but in reality, the service is solid and they serve in-flight meals. I think this is an airline where you can enjoy a very satisfying flight.

Air Macau, which connects Japan and Macau with direct flights, is a recommended airline to use when traveling to Macau.

They also have a mileage partnership with ANA, and you can earn ANA miles by flying with them, so if you want to go on a trip to Macau, I recommend using Air Macau, which offers easy round-trips with direct flights. See you soon!
