PARIS — China Airlines is offering visitors to the 2015 Paris Airshow a glimpse inside its newest Boeing 777-300ER, a three-class configured aircraft that the Taiwanese carrier is debuting at the biannual event.
The entirely redesigned cabin features a 40-seat business class cabin, a 62-seat premium economy cabin, and 256-seats in regular economy. Thirty seats, or 10 sets of three-seats, feature the airline’s “Family Couch” feature, which allows passengers to transform regular economy seats into a bed with the extension of leg rests.
PARIS — While talk swirls of new regional jet designs from other Western manufacturers, the Russian-Italian joint venture behind the newest regional jet in service has an actual product to show at the Paris Air Show.
The Superjet 100, which seats up to 108 passengers in an all-economy configuration and can fly up to 2,470 nautical miles, is 10% more efficient than other aircraft in its class available today, according to Superjet International — the joint venture formed between Russia’s Sukhoi and Italy’s Alenia Aermacchi to market the Russian-built jet in Western markets.
PARIS — Everywhere you go at this year’s Paris Air Show, one topic is on everyone’s minds: is there demand for a “middle-of-the-market” airplane — larger than the workhorse 150-seat A320s and 737-800s, smaller than international long-haul aircraft such as the 787 and A330 that seat 250 or more?
