According to Airline Reporter, the company had their highest revenue yet during 2011/2012, bringing in $362.4 million, which allows them to make some pretty costly changes starting in 2013, like new planes and in-flight entertainment.
Changing the name to Fiji Airways isn't really that landmark since the company went by that name from 1951 to 1970, before they switched to Air Pacific. The change does fit though with their plans to upgrade the company, especially considering the three brand new Airbus A330 aircraft they're adding to their fleet in 2013. The three planes, which will include the airline's new livery and replace the Boeing 747-400's of Air Pacific, will have staggered deliveries, with one arriving in March, one in May, and the last in November.
The new planes will feature a Panasonic eX2 IFEC in-flight entertainment option, as well as economy seats that recline 7.5-inches and business class bed lengths of 76-inches.
