We are booked DUB-MCO in Business, travelling in August and returning in September. Received an e-mail yesterday from Aer Lingus altering our seats. Seat maps have been updated on the EI 121 and 120 to show new Business Class configuration, basically the same as their other A330-300’s. Our old seats were 1HK, 2GHK. Now 2HK, 3K and 4HK. Really pleased and a bit relieved!

Fantastic! A quick search would indicate that awful 2 2 2 config disappears after March....

FNG flying back from BOD this afternoon
DUO is almost ready to come back from BOD

That leaves DAA in BOD, so expect another A330 to head down shortly

Which dates were you looking at? All I can see is the normal configuration in May when I have checked several options...

The seat maps have been updated since the above post which was on 25/1. All flights now reflect the current situation so thankfully they will get the proper EI J cabin .

Looks like EIK maybe already in refurb as it flew to Bordeaux (where I understand the refits are done) on 14th Feb.
Anyone know how long these refits take typically?

I noticed that there is a new configuration plane arriving in MIA on March 10th.
There is also a plane arriving in MIA on the 13th which is the 222 old config.
The same day on the 13th the 222 config returns back to Dublin.
There doesn't appear to be any return flight for the plane that had arrived on the 10th... so my question is, what would that plane be doing stationed in Miami?
