Tue, 01 May 07

Private Indian carrier Jet Airways has announced that it will start flying between India and the US via Brussels from August 2007...

Each Boeing 777 will feature eight first class 'suites' providing more than 26sq feet of space featuring dual sliding doors to create a feeling of privacy. The seat within will extend to what the airline claims will be the world's longest fully flat bed at 83 inches. Each suite will include a 23 inch television screen, a personal wardrobe and office facilities.

The airline's chairman Naresh Goyal said: "The new cabins represent an exciting leap forward in our expansion plans. The seats are at the cutting-edge of airline design technology and promise to surpass the very best of the British and international competition for comfort, luxury and style. 

"We have spent more than two years designing each cabin and are confident in saying that the flying experience on Jet Airways will be the very best in the air."

He added:

"We have seen impressive growth in the UK marketplace in the last two years and believe that with our new aircraft, highly competitive products, unrivalled levels of customer service and attractive pricing we will become the number one airline of choice for visitors to India".
