American Airlines’ first Boeing 767-300ER retrofitted with the airline’s new Business Class cabin and general interior upgrade will perform its inaugural commercial flight on April 1.

The first retrofitted American Airlines Boeing 767-300ER will operate its inaugural commercial service between New York JFK (IATA code JFK) and Zurich Airport (ZRH).

American Airlines has begun retrofitting half of its existing 58-aircraft Boeing 767-300ER fleet to offer 28 fully lie-flat Business Class seats with aisle access from every seat.

Other elements of the Boeing 767-300ER retrofit project include the installation of new LCD drop-down monitors, new digital audio systems, refreshed lavatories, and new seat covers and cushions in the Main Cabin.

Each retrofitted 767-300ER will also be outfitted with international Wi-Fi; in-seat entertainment; and Main Cabin Extra seating, which provides more legroom for economy-class passengers willing to pay a premium over economy-class prices.

These interior elements mirror the design of American’s Boeing 777-300ER fleet for a more consistent passenger experience throughout American Airlines’ widebody fleet.

American says that, as additional retrofitted 767-300ERs prepare to enter service, it will deploy the refurbished aircraft to additional markets.

Those 767-300ER which American retrofits with the new Business Class cabin and other interior-upgrade elements will operate in the new configuration with fully lie-flat Business Class Seats and all-aisle access.

However, American says it will retire over time the remaining 767-300ERs which it does not refurbish.
