The national carrier of India, Air India, has begun operating its recently acquired Boeing 777 aircraft to all three of its US destinations: Newark Liberty, San Francisco, and New York JFK. The airline is upgrading its current flights to the US with six of its new Boeing 777-300ER planes.
Upgraded Boeing 777-300ER flights to the US
As we can see, the older Maharaja windows are no longer there in the newly arrived aircraft, which also has upgraded seat covers. The aircraft is marked with the Delta name because it was formerly run by the airline. In the case of Air India, they left it as is in order to avoid incurring additional costs for the seats.
Furthermore, considering that passengers were impressed by the upgrades, the majority of the long-haul flights definitely need some of the in-flight entertainment in the new aircraft, which has functional in-flight screens and a luxurious cabin.
Air India’s new in-flight meal menu
The new in-flight meal menu that provides a variety of food options has also been improved by Air India, making passengers satisfied with the price they paid for the trip.
Customers will be welcomed on board Air India’s Premium Economy class with a welcome drink served on an elegant silver tray and a menu card reflecting a glimpse of a delectable culinary experience during the flight. On board, customers will be able to choose from a delicious selection of three meal choices for the main course, served on fine chinaware casserole, accompanied by an appetizer and dessert. The drinks menu includes a fine selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Air India announced that one of its two daily flights (AI130/AI131) between Mumbai and London Heathrow will now be flown by the cutting-edge Boeing 777. The deeply refurbished aircraft has contemporary interiors that give passengers a more opulent space. First-Class cabins are a major feature of this update that improves the whole trip experience.
“In addition, one of the two daily Air India flights between Mumbai and London Heathrow (AI130/AI131) will now also operate on the new B777 aircraft offering modern generation interiors, as well as introducing First Class cabins,” said the airline.
The B777-200LR aircraft, which operates between San Francisco and New York-JFK, has 212 Economy Class seats, 48 Premium Economy seats, and 28 Business Class seats. Additionally, there are 8 First Class, 40 Business, and 280 Economy Class seats on the B777-300ER that runs a route between Newark-Liberty and London.
