Asiana upgrades Seattle service with B777s

8 Jun 2015 by Clement Huang

The introduction of B777-200ERs on Asiana Airlines’ route from Seoul–Incheon to Seattle will improve the in-flight experience for premium customers with the introduction of flat-bed seats.
 
The South Korean carrier replaces the route’s existing A330-300s from June 28 for most of the six-times weekly flights, operating the B777-200ERs on all services except Fridays.
 
The A330s still feature angle-flat business class seats, while Asiana has fitted the B777s with flat-bed premium seats.
 
The seat upgrade comes at the expense of capacity, as the B777 offers 22 business class seats, down from 30 on the A330. The B777’s flatbed seats are installed in a 1-2-1 (four seats per row) layout, as opposed to a 2-2-2 (six seats per row) configuration on the A330.
 
Capacity in economy class has been given a slight boost, as the B777 features 272 seats, 27 more seats than on the A330. The aircraft change is reflected on Asiana’s online booking platform.
