Is it a lounge? Is it a plane? Taiwan’s China Airlines recently introduced its new Boeing 777-300 ER, with its plush and swanky interiors made out in wood grain, the interiors resemble a lounge rather than a plane. Seats that convert into a sofa, a coffee saloon, a tea tasting area, a cocktail bar are some of the things passengers aboard this aircraft get to experience whilst flying.
Premium class passengers witness the first high ceiling sky lounge, bookshelves filled with the best of Chinese and English books, a cocktail bar in the middle of the plane and full flat 78 inches spacious seats with 18 inch screens for entertainment.
The economy passengers have enough to make their flight comfortable too. By simply raising their footrest they can convert their seats into a single sofa bed called “Asia’s First Family Couch”.
The plane is designed to showcase Taiwanese culture and is already flying routes in Taiwan. Los Angeles will be on its map by December 2014 and New York and San Fransisco by 2015.
For a new experience and to be pampered amidst the clouds, this is one airline you must fly.
