United Airlines said Friday it plans to introduce its new Polaris business-class cabin on its first Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The first 777-300ER is slated to enter the fleet in February 2017.

The recently unveiled Polaris cabin will feature new fully lie-flat business-class seats with direct-aisle access as well as the amenities such as Saks Fifth Avenue pillows and blankets and a brand-new Polaris menu.

United, which expects a total of 14 777-300ERS in the coming year, will operate the new plane on its San Francisco-Hong Kong route starting March 25. The aircraft will replace a Boeing 747 jumbo jet on the route.

United will also operate the 777-300ER on a premium transcon route between Newark and San Francisco International Airport for a limited period of time, starting February 16 through May 4.

Last week United inaugurated its first Polaris business-class lounge, which is located at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago
