Air China upgrades aircraft on Sydney and Hong Kong services

6 Nov 2012

Air China is upgrading the aircraft used on flights from Beijing to Hong Kong and Sydney and will now offer a first class cabin on both services.  

From December 11, the daily service to Sydney will be operated using a B777-300ER. This replaces the current A330-200 aircraft, which has 12 business class seats and 271 economy seats. 

The new airplane has eight lie-flat seats in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in business, and 261 economy class seats. It is one of the new aircraft Air China has taken delivery of during the past year, featuring both their new first (see here) and business class products (see here).  

On October 28, the airline also began operating a 777-200 aircraft on flight pairing CA111/ CA112 – one of its two daily services between Beijing and Hong Kong. 

The new aircraft offers 12 first, 49 business, and 253 economy class seats. It replaces the A330-200 on the route.  

Air China’s other daily flight between Beijing and Hong Kong CA109/CA110 will continue to be operated with the A330-200.
