Air China Upgrades to Boeing 777 for San Francisco-Beijing Route

Starting February 11, 2014, Air China will deploy a new 311-seat Boeing 777-300ER on its daily flight between Beijing and San Francisco, replacing the B747-400 aircraft that is currently operating. The new aircraft features flat-bed seats in first and business classes, while the economy class seats enjoy personal in-flight entertainment units and power outlets.

The B777-300ERs have already been put into service on the airline’s flights from Beijing to New York, Los Angeles and Houston. The move marks the latest stage in Air China’s long-term plan to replace all remaining B747s with the more fuel-efficient B777s and B747-8 Intercontinentals.
