3 class 77W oeprating as 2 class to NCL

Hi All,

I'm flying to NCL (ticketed in J) later this month which is due to be operated by a three class 77W despite being a 2 class service.

Any chance that I'll be able to reserve a suite at check in, or are they likely to block them off? (I'm gold if that makes any difference.)

Thanks,

From experience, 3-class aircraft operated on 2-class routes get the F blocked off unless there is overbooking in the lower classes. They usually bump Golds first to the F seats from J if the flight is oversold (but not if the number of passengers still matches the number of seats in J+Y).

Unless they _need_ the seats, then they won't be used. I have had a 3-class twice DXB to BHX and both times the suites have just been left unused. Crew use them to store the mattresses etc

Any time I've seen this before a plane with old F has been used, not suites. In those cases F seats were blocked online but used on the day if business cabin was filled.
