air india 777 economy class cabin pics

Air India’s brand new 77L were delivered factory fresh and have the new aircraft smell and look. The interior is spotless and well-maintained and the alternating yellow, orange, and red seat shades are extremely pleasant to the eye. The bathrooms were well stocked throughout the flight and was clean even after the 12 hour flight at DEL.

AI’s Y class configuration for their 77L include the standard 3-3-3 (except some “mean” carriers like EK with the 3-4-3) layout, but with extremely generous pitch (35” in my row). The seats have above industry recline, come with foot and headrests. Also, the seats have the new Y approach where the seat slides out instead of reclining. Most impressive is the seat front with lots of little spaces and a little drop bag (where the pre-departure water was found).
Inflight Entertainment:

Absolutely delightful. Seriously people, I am becoming an AI convert. Their IFE system is decades ahead of many of its competitors. Featuring a fully touch screen system, it offers over 1000 hours of entertainment including a seriously wide choice of movies (over 36 quality English movies), games, great forward and rear cameras, and messaging, etc. Even more appealing is the quality head-sets which are even better than some of the crap you get on Business class – see my Korean Air J class reports (click here) for more on what I mean. Added to this, a good in-flight magazine and you really have no reason to complain about the standard of service.

i fly Frankfurt to Delhi flight AI 121/ai120 in the B777-200LR
These are new seats in shells on a new long-range Boeing 777. seats are comfortable with 180 degree recline and plenty of leg room. The B777-200LR business class seats are wide and stylishly upholstered, have good padding and a nice headrest, and come with a very large personal TV screen
cabin layout 2x3x2 which is not the best for privacy. Good food and drink, and crew. However, the rest of Air India routes are amongst the worst flights you can take. EWR-FRA-BOM business class product is very different, different standard of wines and alcohol, no amenity kit - Not even a tooth brush! This lack of standard product offering is the reason I would not take Air India unless it is a good value advantage over other airlines
