A new line of 787 Dreamliner aircraft, manufactured by the Boeing Corporation, was recently acquired by Israel’s airline company EL AL to create a new level of flight experience.
Aiming to offer a flight experience of international standards, EL AL partnered with PriestmanGoode, a leading international design company specializing in aircraft design and customer experience, to design the new line of the Dreamliner aircraft.
According to El Al, two aircraft will be phased in this year, while an additional 14 aircraft will gradually be phased in by 2020.
Business Class – Luxury and comfort
The new Business Class onboard the Dreamliner was designed in rich tones of wood, chocolate and champagne, which aims to redefine the concept of luxury – with maximum comfort and privacy. The seats, which open to a full-flat bed with a click of a button, were manufactured using advanced technology, with ergonomic seat cushions for maximum neck and back support throughout the flight.
The Business Class menu offers a variety of meals made of the best ingredients, suited for both Israeli and international tastes, offering a selection of main courses served personally, at passengers’ preferred time.
Premium Economy: The new way to fly
The Premium Economy Class is a new class onboard the EL AL aircraft that aims to offer a “new premium experience in the skies” that includes wider, more spacious seats, larger screens and luxurious, personal service.
Premium Economy Class is separated from the Economy Class by a curtain and divider, providing guests maximum privacy. It is spacious and has wide ergonomic seats, 96 cm legroom. Premium Economy passengers can enjoy a dedicated service and a rich menu.
Economy Class: An advanced flight experience
The cabin space in Economy Class reflects the exceptional flight experience EL AL wishes to deliver its customers as it offers maximum convenience: ergonomic seats, designed for long-haul flights; the seat is equipped with an adjustable headrest, offering six modes, for maximum comfort throughout the flight; and larger, more spacious upper storage space, 30 percent larger compared to other passenger aircraft in the industry.
A World of Content
In addition to a contemporary look, the Dreamliner aircraft offer diverse content. A touch screen for each seat and AVOD entertainment system by Panasonic offer a wide selection of content including films, American and Israeli TV shows and tour guides, providing tips and important information about flight destinations. The system also offers daily Torah study page and music for the Jewish traditional audience, as well as designated flight applications.
EL AL expects to offer Internet service shortly on its flights.
