China Airlines, which is set to receive the first of its new B777-300ERs next month (see story), has revealed further details of the aircraft’s new cabin products. Each of the 40 business class seats (pictured below) is 78 inches (198cm) long and can be adjusted into a flat bed through a diagrammed control panel. The upholstery features a cloud pattern in a golden hue, inspired by Chinese paintings.
Each passenger in the premium cabin will also get to enjoy the inflight entertainment with an 18-inch personal monitor and a noise-cancelling headphone. The seat is also equipped with multipurpose storage spaces, a USB port and a power socket. The amenity kit will offer Italian-made products.
The self-service bar area, Sky Lounge (pictured below), has taken a year in product development, and it offers refreshments in both Oriental and Western styles. On the left is a tea area featuring local snacks such as sweet green bean cakes and assorted nuts. On the right, there is a coffee zone offering Western choices. The bar is in the centre, serving up cocktails, nibbles and cup noodles. There are also books shelves on both sides, to be stocked up with Chinese and English reading material.
If you happen to be in Kaohsiung this weekend, you can see the new seat products for yourself at Dream Mall where the Taiwanese flag carrier will hold a roadshow (pictured below) on Saturday (August 30) at 1pm-8pm, and on Sunday (August 31) at 5pm-8pm.
