Following the airline’s recent profit announcement Air New Zealand confirmed today that it will go ahead with a programme to upgrade the interior of its eight Boeing 777-200ERs to match the product on offer on its Boeing 777-300ER fleet. Improvements will be made to all cabins with upgraded Business Class seats, the SpaceSeat in Premium Economy and SkyCouch seats in Economy. The Panasonic eXlite In Flight Entertainment system will be fitted in all cabins. The first reconfigured aircraft will enter service in mid 2004.
