77W refit now complete?

I see on nzsource that OKR is back from Singapore and OKS is now over there.

Without searching back through all the posts can anybody confirm that this is the last plane to undergo the refit or has there been one that's been missed in the rego sequence still to do done?

There is at least one left -- last Monday on NZ1 I had a non-refit aircraft

Flying out tomorrow from LHR and I see it is now the new PE. NZ6 from LAX has old PE, so that may be the one of the last?

I've just checked with a source.

OKP and OKQ are still to be done. I believe OKP goes for it's refit late Sept and then OKQ late Oct

NZ1/NZ2 was only a (semi) guaranteed Spaceseat until late Aug

I still can't believe they didn't take the opportunity to move to some fancy new BP seat -- the newly installed ones really are identical except for the screen

Thought my last trip to the UK back in May/June was also a farewell to the old PE SpaceSeat...

As luck would have it, my outbound flight 2 weeks ago on NZ1 was ZK-OKQ (although I didn't lodge an upgrade that time, but did get a SkyCouch row in the end), and my return flight on NZ5 is going to be ZK-OKP, which I did lodge a E-APD upgrade for to get into PE.

Guess I'll savour/remember every moment of it tonight.

You hit the jackpot... just checked in and was told there will indeed be a ~1hr tech stop at NAN for NZ5

Not too keen for shortened/broken up sleep schedule, would rather a ~12.5hr flight instead of ~10.5hr + 1.5hr tech stop + 2.5hr...

Definately First World Problems. Least I get to experience SpaceSeats for longer...
