Continental fully rolls out flat-bed seats on Hongkong-New York route

9 Aug 2010

All Continental Airlines flights between Hongkong and New York now feature the new flat-bed BusinessFirst seats.

The seats were first introduced in 2009 on the daily CO98 service, which utilised the Boeing B777, but not all aircraft had them. Continental will continue to install them on the remaining B777 and B757-200 in its fleet. Recently, it took delivery of two new B777 aircraft which were outfitted with the flat-beds.

The seats can recline to a full 180 degrees, providing passengers two metres of sleeping space (see previous news for more on its features). These follow a 2-2-2 configuration.

Other BusinessFirst amenities include free limousine transfer to and from Hong Kong International Airport, concierge services, free airport lounge access, three pieces of checked baggage allowance, 150 percent mileage accrual for OnePass members and priority baggage check-in and boarding line among others.
