Air China to introduce the Boeing 777-300 ER on the Los Angeles-Beijing route
Air China (Beijing) will introduce its new Boeing 777-300 ER on the Los Angeles – Beijing route effective on February 1, 2012.
On September 1, 2011 , Air China doubled its daily flight between Los Angeles and Beijing , the first time in the company’s history that the capacity is increased in a daily fashion to an international point. The new state-of-the-art Boeing 777-300 ER will debut on the night flight, CA 984/CA983, between LAX and Beijing. Air China is the only airline that provides nonstop service between these two cities.
According to the airline, “passengers of Air China will be treated to a host of onboard amenities. The environment-friendly Boeing 777-300 ER delivers better fuel performance and is much quieter than other aircraft. Its sculpted side walls, ceiling and overhead carry-on compartments create a feeling of openness and space. The aircraft cabin is configured with 8 Forbidden Pavilion first class luxury suites, 41 fully flat Capital Pavilion business class seats and 259 economy seats. The enhanced entertainment system features generous monitor screens at 23 inches in first class, 15 inches in business and 9 inches in economy. As well there is a wide range of audio and video on demand (AVOD) program and a 3D Airshow. Personal power outlets are available in all three cabins.
Designed to ensure maximum passenger comfort, the interior of Air China’s Boeing 777-300 ER features ten mood lighting variations in the Forbidden and Capital Pavilions, each timed to complement the various phases of a flight—from boarding through meal service, sleeping and pre-arrival. The ambient lighting recreates the sunset, night and sunrise to reflect the various services associated with each phase and create a totally relaxing environment. The Air Over fridge-typed galley preserves the freshness of the inflight meals, ensuring Air China’s passengers of the top quality of the food served throughout the duration of the flight. Additionally, wardrobe lockers, central bars, espresso, wine coolers, box for small items are available in premium cabins.”
