“The delivery of the Boeing 777-300ER sets a new standard of quality and value in air travel, especially for direct, long-haul flights, as we continue to expand our destination network globally,” said Emirsyah.
The ceremony also showcased the new first class product. Premium passengers of the B777-300ER will be treated to a range of privileges, most notably the “chef on board” service which enables them to choose from a selection of exclusive meals from a dedicated menu, prepared at an altitude of more than 35,000 feet (10,668 metres), by a stationed chef.Garuda Indonesia first class seat
