Continental upgrades AVOD system on its B777 fleet

8 Jun 2009

All
passengers on Continental Airlines’ Transpacific routes will enjoy enhanced
inflight entertainment following the completion of Audio Video on Demand (AVOD)
system installation on all of its Boeing B777 aircraft.

These
systems are now available on all B777 aircraft, which are deployed on
Continental’s Transpacific routes such as Hongkong-New York, Beijing-New York,
Shanghai-New York, Tokyo-New York and Tokyo-Houston.

The
project, which was delivered by Hongkong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited
(Haeco) over a period of 20 months, involved removing, modifying and
reinstalling all the cabin seats and rerouting all required cables to other
parts of the plane so as to free up space for a newer and larger crew rest area
which now sleeps six crew members.

Reconfiguration
also means that Continental’s B777 aircraft now offers an additional four
BusinessFirst and three economy seats.

In
addition, Continental plans to commence installation of new flatbed seats in
its BusinessFirst class in September. The new flatbeds will also be installed
by Haeco, which has provided aircraft maintenance and structural modification
services to Continental since September 1996.
