All Continental Airlines Boeing 777s have flat-bed seats in business class


People with business class tickets will be treated to a pleasant surprise the next time they board a Continental aircraft.

That's because the airline recently announced that all of its Boeing 777 long-haul international flights now feature flat-bed seats in its BusinessFirst cabin. The airline currently operates the large aircraft on flights to Beijing, Dehli, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Shanghai, Tel Aviv and Tokyo.

"Customers flying to international destinations on our Boeing 777s are now assured a flat-bed seat whenever they choose to fly with us," said Jim Compton, executive vice president of Continental Airlines. "These seats are highly popular with customers from all over the world, and we will begin installing them on the rest of our widebody fleet beginning next year."

The new flat-bed seats recline 180 degrees to allow for 6 feet and 6 inches of space to sleep, according to the airline, and is one of the widest seats in the air at 27 inches. Along with the extra space, passengers will also have iPod connectivity, USB plus and power outlets, making sure that there is plenty of entertainment opportunities available for the long haul flight.
