The airline is making extensive efforts to progressively refit its Boeing 777-200ER fleet promising the best on-board customer experience to its customers that would be at par with the top quality in-flight innovation and comfort that are being presently enjoyed by the customers flying on the Boeing 777-300ER aircrafts and newly-acquired Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
Air New Zealand has undertaken a massive $100 million fleet refurbishment project under which its eight Boeing 777-200ER aircrafts will have their interiors gradually stripped out and replaced with new fittings.

The customers traveling on Air New Zealand’s flights NZ135 and NZ136 traveling between Brisbane and Auckland are now enjoying the transformation and were the first to get a new flying experience on the refurbished aircraft.

According to Air New Zealand, the refurbished aircraft will be featuring new luxury leather Premium Economy seats, which have recently been introduced on Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircrafts and nine rows of award-winning Economy Skycouch product. The refurbished aircraft will also have Business Premier lie-flat beds and newly-designed Economy Class seats. The aircraft is also being refitted with new Panasonic eX3 seatback in-flight entertainment system with improved touch and resolution capabilities.

The airline indicated that its entire Boeing 777-200ER fleet will be progressively refurbished. After refurbishing is complete, the final aircraft is scheduled to be deployed for operations late 2015.
