Russian airline Aeroflot has unveiled its first long-range Boeing B777 aircraft with retrofitted cabin.
Compared to the previous B777 cabin, the retrofitted cabin can accommodate more passengers as the Premium Economy Cabin’s seats are halved.
The cabin is configured with 28 Super Diamond NG seats in a 1-2-1 configuration equipped with a sliding door in Business class, 24 seats in Comfort class (Aeroflot’s Premium Economy) in a 2-4-2 configuration and 375 seats in Economy class in a 3-4-3 configuration , coming to a total of 427 seats. All seats come in high-quality jacquard upholstery.
Seat pitch in Economy class is around 31 inches while it is about 38 inches in Premium Economy class. Aeroflot’s new B777 business class seats are Collins Aerospace Super Diamond seats. These seats are very similar to those found on British Airways’ Airbus A350. Sliding doors and an extra armrest turn a seat in a private suite fitted with an 18.5-inch HD monitor and 2-metre full-flat bed.
