Next January has been confirmed by SWISS for the unveiling of its new flagship Boeing 777-300ER, the first of nine.
In SWISS configuration the twinjets will seat 340 passengers and replace Airbus A340s, not exactly known for their fuel economy.
The B777s will also offer a state-of-the-art cabin product in all three classes including wi-fi and will be deployed on routes to and from Asia, South America and the US West Coast from the 2016 summer schedules onwards.
The eight SWISS First seats will be transformable into the occupant’s own private suite which includes a 32-inch screen, the largest in the industry. SWISS First guests will also enjoy electrically-adjustable window blinds and their own personal wardrobe.
Business Class travellers will enjoy an inflight product that has been further enhanced and refined on the basis of customer feedback. The seating arrangement offers optimum privacy and freedom of movement, while the seat cushion’s firmness can be individually regulated. All 62 seats in the Business Class cabin can also be quickly and easily converted into a lie-flat bed that is over two metres long.
With new seat-cushion technology and further innovations that include a large personal touchscreen, SWISS Economy customers can also look forward to a new air travel experience. Outside the regular cabin service, all SWISS Economy guests will be able to make use of a self-service kiosk offering a wide range of drinks and snacks. www.swiss.com
