China Eastern 777-300ER Interior Unveiled

First Class




Business Class



Economy Class




I personally really like the design, but sadly they have chosen a 3-4-3 configuration in Economy...they should have followed Air China with the 3-3-3 configuration.

"China Eastern is expecting 4 777-300ER to be delivered in 2014, 5 in 2015, 5 in 2016, 3 in 2017, and 3 in 2018. The new 777 will be a replacement for the airlines fuel-guzzling A340-600. "

Like almost everyone ordering 777s these days, even top shelf carriers like ANA are shifting towards 3-4-3 economy seating. Some of the really respectable carriers like JAL, Cathay, Qatar and Singapore are keeping the reasonable 3-3-3 layout, but it's becoming a thing of the past for more and more carriers.

I do like the relaxed, subtle aesthetic in the new China Eastern Cabin though, pleasant look to it.

That's why I'm really surprised Air China and China Southern opted for a 9-abreast layout.

No kidding, they must have had some concern about filling a plane that big on the routes they are putting them on. Although Ethiopian and Garuda Indonesia both ordered 3-3-3 planes recently and neither has reputation for luxury, so who knows. But when one sees Air Canada going full on 458 seat sardine can, worse KLM and with the likes of ANA, AF, AA, EK, EY, NZ all going 10 abreast it sure seems like a trend. I am also kind of amazed we haven't seen either Delta or United retrofit their 777s to a 3-4-3, neither is really renowned for personal space in economy (and hell United has 2-4-2 Business class on most of their 772s).

Should that configuration (3-4-3) be applied as well for Boeing 747-8s?

I don't know what should has to do with it, but they all will. 747s have been configured in a 3-4-3 since the late 1970s (although the early planes were delivered in a 3-4-2 layout). The 747's fuselage is a bit wider than a 777 so it's less cramped, but not near as reasonable as 3-4-3 on an a380.

Air China and Cathay Pacific inject 2b yuan into cargo venture
27 June 2014
South China Morning Post

Air China Cargo, a joint venture between Air China and Cathay Pacific since 2010, will see its registered capital rise 62 per cent to 5.2 billion yuan (HK$6.5 billion) following a capital injection of two billion yuan announced yesterday.

Air China, which owns 51 per cent of its cargo subsidiary, will pour in one billion yuan in cash and other assets. Cathay's 49 per cent stake in Air China Cargo consists of a 25 per cent equity interest held by subsidiary Cathay Pacific China Cargo Holdings and a 24 per cent economic interest through the returns on loans it provides to Fine Star, Air China Cargo's third shareholder. It will inject 500 million yuan in cash through the former and 480 million yuan in cash through Fine Star.

Cathay said in announcement to the Hong Kong stock exchange that the move would provide funds to assist Air China Cargo to adjust its fleet, reduce its operating costs and develop its cargo charter flight business with China Postal Airlines.

Air China Cargo, whose principal operating bases are in Beijing and Shanghai, reported an audited net loss of 349 million yuan in 2013.

Andrew Orchard, an analyst at CIMB securities, said the magnitude of the capital injection was significant. "The joint venture was not doing so well. It's been loss-making since its inception. This is a signal that Air China and Cathay are going to try to make this work out even though there have been some rumours or concerns that they would potentially shut down the operation altogether."

He said it was revealed to analysts at a recent briefing that the joint venture has been causing losses of as much as HK$50 million per month for Cathay.

China to Get Low-Cost Carrier
3 July 2014
The Wall Street Journal Asia

HONG KONG -- China Eastern Airlines Corp. plans to convert one of its units into a low-cost airline, becoming the first Chinese state-run carrier to enter Asia's booming budget-airline market after Beijing's move to liberalize its aviation sector.

China United Airlines, a Beijing-based domestic carrier controlled by China Eastern Airlines, will transform itself into a low-cost airline, said James Wang, China Eastern's company secretary.

"We believe the low-cost carrier market has enormous growth potential in China given its low penetration rate, which is just 5% now, much lower than a 30% to 40% penetration in developed markets such as the U.S. and Europe," said Mr. Wang. He declined to give details about when China United will begin operations as a budget airline.

Beijing this year unveiled new guidelines to jump-start its fledgling low-cost-airline market after its decision last year to lift a six-year-old ban on establishing new airlines. The guidelines included simplifying approvals for new low-cost airlines as well as measures to help existing budget carriers expand more quickly.

Based at Beijing's Nanyuan Airport, a smaller military-and civil-use domestic airport roughly 8 miles from downtown Beijing, China United Airlines operates a fleet of 26 Boeing 737 aircraft and flies to about 70 cities in China. It plans to triple its fleet size to 80 aircraft by 2019 and will then relocate its home base to Beijing's planned second major airport when it commences operation by the end of this decade.

Mr. Wang said China's aviation market is big enough to absorb more competitors and lower airfares could spur ticket sales. "People may consider going on multiple trips instead of just one a year. Those who used to travel by train would consider going by air now because of lower ticket prices," he said.

Among China's three state-run carriers, Shanghai-based China Eastern is likely the most vulnerable to the budget-airline boom. Spring Airlines Co., the nation's largest budget airline, is also based in China's financial capital and has expanded its fleet to roughly 40 Airbus A320 aircraft, which fly short-haul flights to popular markets such as Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong.

Low penetration in China's budget airline market has also prompted traditional full-service airlines to jump into the discount race. Chongqing-based regional carrier West Air Co., which like Hainan Airlines Co. is controlled by HNA Group, a privately owned Chinese conglomerate, last year transformed itself into a budget carrier. Meanwhile, privately owned Juneyao Group, which also controls Shanghai-based Juneyao Airlines, in June announced a plan to set up a budget offshoot called 9 Air -- which translates as "Nine Bucks Airlines" in Mandarin -- in Guangzhou later this year.

The increasing number of budget airlines setting up shop in China raises concerns that growing competition could hurt profitability in one of the world's fastest-growing aviation markets. However, Credit Suisse analyst Timothy Ross said the pace of liberalization will likely remain tightly managed by China's aviation regulator, whose aim is still largely to protect the interest of the state-owned carriers.

The authorities "would probably restrict landing rights or slot availability at large airports, and probably offer some degree of incentives to the LCCs to serve more outlying areas. That way you'll achieve your social aim without being detrimental to incumbents," he said.

Mr. Ross said China Eastern's move into the low-cost carrier sector also "reflects both a newfound opportunity and growing frustration at the inability of Jetstar Hong Kong" to get off the ground in Hong Kong amid opposition from de facto flag carrier Cathay Pacific Airways.

China Eastern, the smallest among the three state-owned carriers in terms of fleet size, in 2012 unveiled a plan to set up Jetstar Hong Kong, a stand-alone budget airline based in Hong Kong under a joint venture with Qantas Airways Ltd.'s Jetstar Group and Shun Tak Holdings Ltd., which is controlled by Macau businessman Stanley Ho. But the airline, which had been scheduled to begin operations in 2013, is still seeking regulatory approval from Hong Kong's government to start flights.

In September, Cathay Pacific filed a formal objection with Hong Kong's government against Jetstar Hong Kong's plan to roll out services, citing possible violation of the city's mini-constitution, the Basic Law. The approval of Jetstar's application would set "a dangerous precedent by granting control of Hong Kong's hard-negotiated sovereign air traffic rights to a carrier that is nothing more than a franchise operation controlled by a foreign airline," Cathay Pacific said. Cathay Pacific said Wednesday its position on Jetstar Hong Kong is unchanged.

Chinese airlines see brisk business in H1

BEIJING, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Passengers traveling with Chinese airlines made 186 million trips in the first half of 2014, up 10.7 percent year on year, figures from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) showed on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the aviation sector witnessed a surge in freight transport volume, with the period's air cargo volume up 6 percent year on year to 2.79 million tonnes.

Li Jiaxiang, head of the CAAC, stressed aviation safety at a work meeting held here on Thursday and urged greater efforts to reform the sector to unleash market potential.

Li also said China will improve air travel services and the punctuality of flights.
