Air India to fly B787 Mumbai–Chennai–Singapore

19 Jun 2014 by GrahamSmith
Air India will introduce the B787 Dreamliner to its daily Mumbai–Chennai–Singapore service from October 25. The carrier's Boeing 787-8, which will replace the incumbent A330-200 on the route, offers a two-class cabin layout with 18 seats in business (2-2-2) and 238 in economy (3-3-3). Business class passengers will appreciate the new seat offering available on the B787 — the current product on the A330 only offers a 13-inch recline and 52-inch pitch, whereas the Dreamliner's business seat is a flat-bed and has a more generous 74-inch pitch. Flight times will remain the same. Flight AI342 departs daily from Mumbai at 2125 and reaches Chennai at 2310. After a short layover, the aircraft will take-off from Chennai at 0045 the following day before arriving in Singapore at 0720. Return flight AI343 leaves Singapore at 0820 and reaches Chennai at 0945. From there, the aircraft will again take-off at 1110 before touching down in Mumbai at 1300 the same day. airindia.com Clement Huang
