Passengers will be offered the choice of three cabins, with 40 flat-bed seats in business class, 62 seats in premium economy and 256 in economy. The aircraft also features CAL’s new ‘Family Couch’ product, which converts a row of three economy class seats into a flat bed.
And from September 2015, CAL will increase the frequency of its Taipei-New York route with the addition of a fourth weekly service, departing Taoyuan every Friday.
CAL welcomed its first new B777-300ER in September 2014 and has now taken delivery of four out of an order for 10 of the aircraft. These aircraft will gradually replace its older B747-400s, initially on trans-Pacific routes.
