Air New Zealand has unveiled new economy seats for its A320/321neo aircraft that are up to 3cm wider than existing seats and feature a new slimline design the airline says will offer passengers more space.In a bid to make it more attractive, the much disliked middle seat will be 3cm wider — or 48.6cms (19.1 inches) wide — in the new aircraft. The window and aisle seats will be 1cm wider than the existing seats, which are 45.4cms (17.9 inches) between the armrests.The airline revealed the new economy seats by UK company Acro Aircraft on Wednesday at Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg and said it had also worked with New Zealand company Flight Designs to develop a new seat cover delivering “superior comfort levels for longer’’.An AirNZ spokeswoman said seat pitch on the neos would be similar to the current A320 international fleet but a slimmer seatback design would provide more personal space. Seat pitch on the current A320s goes as low as 30 inches and as high as 34 inches, according to SeatGuru.Air New Zealand general manager customer experience Anita Hawthorne said in the company’s announcement that the design of the new seat was customer-led.Hawthorne said the airline and Acro had been keen to address key areas of customer feedback and further improve the inflight experience.“The slightly wider middle seat helps balance out the fact that window and aisle seat customers enjoy a greater sense of space,’’ she said. “We currently have many customers who state a preference for window or aisle seats and it’s possible the new design may see the middle seat get a boost in popularity.AirNZ has a history of innovation, particularly in terms of seating, and Hawthorne said company believed the new seats were not practical from an operational perspective but more comfortable and spacious for customers.Acro Chief Executive Officer Chris Brady said the seat attracted attention at the interiors expo.“To reveal the new seat at this event, which showcases all the very latest innovations, technologies and products for cabin interiors was hugely exciting and piqued a lot of interest in the new product from other airlines and the wider industry alike,” he said.Air NZ has 13 Airbus A320neo family aircraft on order to replace its current A320 fleet and will receive a combination A320neos and A321neos with deliveries widely expected to start in 2018.“The exact configuration for our A320/A321neo aircraft and delivery schedule is yet to be finalised,’’ the airline’s spokeswoman said.

The Ohio State baseball team celebrates its victory against Xavier March 19 at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 10-3.Credit: Sam Harrington / Lantern photographerWith Big Ten play looming, the Ohio State baseball team appears to be starting to play their best ball of the season.Playing under a gray sky for most of the evening, the Buckeyes (13-6, 0-0) came out shining and rolled to their fifth-straight victory, defeating Xavier, 10-3, Wednesday.The game featured two freshman starting pitchers on the bump with the Musketeers’ (11-7, 0-0) Trent Astle going against the Buckeyes’ Tanner Tully.Tully, starting his first collegiate game, began with a commanding five-pitch first inning. Astle wasn’t so lucky.Sophomore infielder Troy Kuhn was batting first for the Buckeyes and, on the second pitch he saw, smacked a homerun over the left field wall. The shot was Kuhn’s fourth of the year, good enough to lead the team.“I’m seeing the ball real well,” Kuhn said. “I keep getting good pitches to hit … taking advantage of other teams mistakes.”With runners on second and third and still no outs, freshman outfielder Ronnie Dawson had an RBI groundout and sophomore infielder Zach Ratcliff followed with an RBI single to give the Buckeyes a quick 3-0 lead.Astle found himself in another jam to begin the second. With the bases loaded and nobody out, sophomore infielder Jacob Bosiokovic hit a sac fly to deep center that plated two. Junior outfielder Pat Porter followed with a sac fly of his own to score another and give Tully a six-run lead to work with.The freshman responded, going five innings with five hits on no runs scored. When Tully had Musketeers in scoring position, he turned up the heat to keep them at bay.“It was good just to go in there and throw strikes and keep the defense in it,” Tully said. “I throw a little bit harder, hit my spots a little bit more (with runners in scoring position) and make sure they don’t score.”Coach Greg Beals was impressed enough with Tully’s first start to say he would probably be the Sunday starter this weekend.“There was no question in my mind he was capable of starting and capable of doing what he did,” Beals said. “To put five zeros up like that, though, was sure good to see … in our meeting tomorrow there’s a pretty good chance we decide Tanner Tully is our Sunday starter this weekend.”The Musketeers scored one in the sixth and two more in eighth to give them a chance, but the offense rose to the occasion and responded with four runs of their own in the eighth.Redshirt-senior reliever Tyler Giannonatti recorded the final four outs to give him his first save of the season and keep the Buckeyes perfect at home so far.The win streak has been an enjoyable one for the Buckeyes, but they know it isn’t time to get complacent.“We’re pretty happy (with where we are), but this is where our mission starts,” Kuhn said. “We want to come out hot.”The Buckeyes are next scheduled to Friday when the Michigan State Spartans come to town. First pitch at Bill Davis Stadium is set for 6:05 p.m.

The Buckeyes claimed the team national title for the 1st time in program history.Credit: Patrick Kalista / Lantern reporterST. LOUIS — The Ohio State wrestling team was busy during spring break, meaning coach Tom Ryan had to spend his time in Missouri instead of the Florida sun.But he probably doesn’t mind.The Buckeyes clinched their first-ever National Championship in St. Louis on Saturday, and also came away with two individual National Champions. Among the individual champions was redshirt-senior Logan Stieber, who picked up his fourth and final national title for the Buckeyes.Ryan couldn’t stop smiling as time ran down before he could officially call his team National Champions, and he said he is relieved that the Buckeyes finished off their title run.“I feel great, proud, for an amazing institution and administration that supports the sport,” Ryan said. “1921 was the first year that Ohio State started wrestling, 94 years later we win our first National Championship.“I’m just so happy for all the coaches, the staff, all the people who are important to this team and Buckeye nation everywhere.”Many people didn’t expect the Buckeyes to have a chance to win it all, as Missouri entered the tournament undefeated and No. 1 in the country, but Ryan said he and his staff put the pieces in place to do so years in advance.“There was no question that we felt we had the right people to win a national championship, we felt that two years ago,” Ryan said.Leading the way for the wrestling Bucks was Stieber. His victory made him just the fourth wrestler to pick up a quartet of national titles.“I can’t thank my teammates, my coaches and my family enough,” Stieber said. “It’s been an unbelievable journey.“I’m extremely proud of my teammates,” Stieber added. “As an individual, to win is amazing. For the team, it’s something I dreamed of ever since I came to Ohio State.”Ryan explained how significant Stieber’s achievement was by saying “more people have been on the moon than have won four national titles.”Joining Stieber on the podium was Nathan Tomasello.The redshirt-freshman said he’s grown throughout his first competitive collegiate season.“It’s just a great learning experience and journey throughout the year,” Tomasello said. “I grew so much and I have great coaches and great throw partners, who love to compete and love the sport of wrestling, every single day. I am just truly thankful everyone that supported me and just truly excited to be here.”The 125-pound Big Ten and National Champion said he is grateful for accomplishing a goal he’s had since before his OSU career began.“It’s been a dream and a goal of mine for many years. Now as a freshman and putting in the time every single day makes it worth it,” Tomasello said. “And just going through the grind of the season and just, this is where you can let yourself fly and see who’s the best. At this tournament, I feel like I peaked at the right time and was wrestling at my best through the Big Ten and then here.”Ryan said Tomasello is a class act and added that he isn’t surprised at the amount of success he’s had.“Nathan represents everything good in the world, Ryan said. “He’s a straight-A student guy. He says what he means and he does what he says and he’s a tremendous worker.”Along with its first national title, the program now has three Big Ten team titles. The Buckeyes finished with five All-Americans this year, which brings the program’s total to 87.Now that the title has been wrapped up, Ryan still has time to enjoy his turn in the Sunshine State. After that trip to Florida with his family, Ryan said he will be right back getting his team ready for next year.“The recruiting and developing young guys is constant,” Ryan said. “I’m going to Florida first and then getting ready for next season starts.”
Serbian striker Luka Jovic wants to stay at Eintracht Frankfurt, despite rumoured interest from Barcelona and Bayern MunichThe Benfica loanee is tied with Borussia Dortmund’s Paco Alcacer as the Bundesliga’s leading scorer on 10 goals this season.Frankfurt sporting director Bruno Hubner has already made it clear he intends to sign Jovic permanently this summer for a rumoured fee in the region of €10-12m.But reports in the German media have suggested that Barcelona and Bayern are interested in making their own moves for the highly-rated Jovic.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.Although the 20-year-old insists his sole focus lies with Frankfurt.“We, the players, shouldn’t think about that. The management at the club will decide that. As for me, I’d like to stay with Eintracht,” Jovic told Bild.“It’s nice that such big clubs are thinking about someone like me. But I keep both feet on the ground and only think about the next game.”Frankfurt, who are fifth in the Bundesliga table, will host Bayer Leverkusen in a league match on Sunday at 18:00 (CET).
If you want to decorate a small house, your options get limited due to the lack of space. Still, you can make the interiors of your small house look perfectly placed. This is through the large open space you have – the walls. There are plenty of creative ideas you can apply to make your wall speak for you.Anjali Jain, an artist and founder of Kala Drishti (NGO) share some ideas to revamp our bland wall:Choose the right colour for your wallIt is a crucial decision and at the same time very difficult to choose the right colour for the walls. The colour should blend with the lighting and furniture in the room. To make any room look good without taking much risk, keep darker colours for floor, moderate colours for the walls and light colours for the ceiling. Also, we should keep in mind for whom the room is being decorated. For instance, if the room is for young kids, then they would prefer bright colours, whereas for aged people light colours are preferable. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfCreate a collage on the wallThere is nothing that adds personality and colour to the room as a gallery wall does. Putting up a great piece of wall art in a space that instantly draws attention, gives a sense of satisfaction. You can display a collection of art, photographs, wall hangings to make a collage on the wall. It is advisable to opt for simple, cohesive framesIf in doubt use wallpapersWallpapers have come a long way since the days of our grandparents. If you cannot paint the walls, then opt for wallpapers. You can select the design or pattern of your choice and liven up your room(s). You can either cover all the four walls or just use a bold and coloured wallpaper on one wall. To create a subtle yet a striking feature, opt for simple designs instead of a hectic pattern.Fabric is the new trendInduce some originality to your living space using fabrics. This idea is simple and inexpensive at the same time. These are easy to put and even more easy to remove. You can use starch to attach the fabric to the wall. With this method, the wall will not get damaged and the fabric can be removed whenever required.
