Boeing, Jet Airways Bring New Look and Comfort to Paris

Displaying its new livery, Jet Airways' recently delivered Boeing [NYSE: BA] 777-300ER arrived Saturday in Le Bourget, France, ahead of Monday's opening of the 47th Paris Air Show.

The airplane's livery isn't the only change for India's largest private airline. Jet Airways' 777-300ER is fitted with a new interior, including newly created first class suites with premiere amenities.

Each of the first class suites offers nearly 26 square feet of usable space that can be closed off with sliding doors. The suites feature a 23-inch flat-screen monitor, storage areas that include a personal hanging wardrobe, dual credenzas and under-ottoman storage, and an 83-inch bed. With a business-jet style table, two can dine comfortably in the suite.

The twin-engine 777-300ER, one of 10 777s Jet Airways has ordered, is configured in three classes, including eight First Class suites, 30 Premiere seats and 274 Economy seats.

Jet Airways operates the 777-300ER on a Mumbai-London route. On Aug. 5, the 14-year-old airline will become the first private airline flying from India to the United States, operating the Boeing 777-300ER via Brussels -- its newly created European hub. The inaugural service will be Mumbai-Brussels-New York (Newark). Via Brussels, Jet Airways will launch future daily international services from Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and Ahmedabad in India, to New York, Chicago, Toronto and Los Angeles. Daily Services to San Francisco via Shanghai are also planned.
