KIX-ICN-SYD-ICN-SPN; Which business class seat?

hi all. i'm trying to find out if my flights have the angled business class seats and AVOD? if not, i'm thinking of switching my flights as it's hard to fly 9+ hours in an old recliner with looped movies/programs. My flights are scheduled for next month.

ANY assistance you can provide is appreciated. Thank you!

I have never been on a OZ 767 so can't comment. But the 333 will have an angled flat seat and AVOD, the 777 will have an angled flat seat and will most probably have AVOD however, there are some birds out there with PTV still.

You'd need a time machine to get a recliner, I'm pleased to say.

Thanks for responding! After doing some research on Asiana's website, I also concluded that the seats were angled lie-flat and that recliners no longer existed. I can handle that! Hopefully I'll get a 777's with AVOD...

OZ 767's have the same seat in a 2-1-2 layout. I recommend the captain Kirk seat (1D). They also have AVOD in all 763's.

The 772's without AVOD (ships 7700 and 7732) are the ones without AVOD. In the past 2 weeks Sydney has had ship 7700 almost 100% of the time unfortunately. Although it is on a loop, the OZ service and catering definitely make up for this.

Sometimes I fly TPE-ICN-TPE operated with B767 and I always had AVOD available. Seats in C are similar to these used on B777's.

On a last minute basis there's been some swappage to a 744, it looks like Saturdays is the day it has happened a few times. So if you're flying on a Saturday you might luck out.
