Full-service carrier Air India today said it plans to upgrade its legacy wide-body fleet of 27 Boeing B787-8 and 13 B777 aircraft with an investment of $400 million.
The refurbishment will see a complete overhaul of the existing cabin interior, induction of latest generation seats and best-in-class inflight entertainment across categories, Air India said in a statement.
In addition, the upgrade will see the introduction of a premium economy cabin on both fleets, it said, adding that the first class cabin will also be retained on the 777.
The airline said it has engaged London-based product design companies, JPA Design and TrendWorks, to assist with the cabin interior design elements of this refurbishment programme.
