Passenger-friendly Dreamliners to shore up Air India's fortune
London: The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the latest acquisition of Air India, is likely to shore up the fortune of India's national carrier as passengers are giving big thumbs up after travelling in the next generation flying machine.
"We hope that Air India's fortune will turn significantly with the induction of the Dreamliners. Passengers are responding very positively to the new aircraft as the Dreamliner is the ultimate in terms of passenger comfort," Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh told PTI.
After rectifying initial technical problem, the Air India so far has inducted six 787 aircraft into service. The B787 is operating on domestic services between Delhi-Chennai, Delhi-Bangalore and Delhi-Kolkata routes besides international operations to London, Frankfurt and Paris.
The Dreamliners offer roomier cabins, larger electronically dimmable windows, a state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment system powered by the most sophisticated GEnxt engines.
