Air India has upgraded its aircraft serving non-stop flights from Mumbai to New York JFK, Newark Liberty Airport, and San Francisco with modern-generation seats and inflight entertainment systems in all classes.

The B777-200LR aircraft serving San Francisco and New York-JFK has 28 Business, 48 Premium Economy, and 212 Economy Class seats, while the B777-300ER serving Newark-Liberty and London offers eight First Class, 40 Business, and 280 Economy Class seats. This deployment of newly inducted B777 aircraft ensures a comfortable and modern travel experience for all passengers.

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, which features modern generation interiors and introduces First Class cabins. The B777-200LR aircraft, which serves San Francisco and New York-JFK, is equipped with 28 Business Class, 48 Premium Economy, and 212 Economy Class seats.

On the other hand, the B777-300ER aircraft, which serves Newark-Liberty and London, offers eight First Class, 40 Business Class, and 280 Economy Class seats. The Boeing 777-300ER is a long-range wide-body aircraft that is capable of flying non-stop from India to the US.

Air India’s ongoing product transformation includes the induction of seven new B777s in the past year, with four more to follow, as well as six new Airbus A350s in the coming months. These aircraft boast significantly improved interiors and will pave the way for a full interior upgrade of the entire widebody fleet starting in mid-2024, according to Campbell. Additionally, Air India has recently added seven Boeing 777s to its fleet, with four more expected to join soon.
