Air China announced that it will begin using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on its route between Beijing and San Francisco starting February 11, 2014.  With this change, all of Air China’s routes to the continental U.S. will have been upgraded to Boeing 777-300ER service.

Air China’s 777-300ERs feature eight suites with lie-flat beds in first class, each with a width of 23“ and overall length of 80“.  In Business class, there are 42 seats, also lie-flat beds.  The beds extend to 60“, and the seats are 22“ wide.  The 263 seats in economy class each have a pitch of 32“.

The airline expanded its service to the U.S. this past year, including increasing its Beijing-New York service to 11 flights a week, and its Beijing-Los Angeles service to two daily flights in March.  The carrier also began service between Beijing and Houston in July.  On its U.S. service from Beijing, the airline will be introducing fine French wines and a selection of Chinese fare in its first and business class cabins.

In addition, Air China will begin new service between Beijing and Hawaii next month.
