The seat map on ExpertFlyer for today's (May 20) flight EWR-Luton shows two rows of 2-2-2 in First for 12 seats and six rows of 2-3-2 in Business (middle seats are blocked out) for ~36 seats. Total 48 seats. 6 unassigned seats as of 10:30 am et.

I was assigned the first row in business 6J and 6K. Don't know how people snag First class, but oh well. We'll see what happens, but I was planning on boarding and immediately reclining my seat to go to sleep. If it is the ex-Emirates bird, it looks like my seat would be in the lap of the person behind me. For good karma reasons, I can't recline if the person behind me is eating. Alternative is to drink enough champagne until I can sleep in an upright position.

Blogger Lucky @ One Mile At A Time has a post on the plane, including likely seat photos. Bummer.

It will be creepy to cross the Atlantic with 200 empty seats behind me. But still excited!
