I flew NH5 on Saturday and it was still the 77W. Looking at the flight adjustments that have been posted in the other thread it didn't look like there was any planned equipment changes to it...

777w j class seating JFK to NRT IOJ

I'm flying the new 777-300 ER from JFK to NRT. Seat Guru shows row 6 window seats have a misaligned windows? Can anyone verify truth to that? This is on NH 9 or 10.

Should I move to row 9? I heard the front mini cabin is preferrable?

Thanks!!

There was a thread on this a few years ago
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/all-n...red-seats.html
But no answers - so I'll make a list

IOJ hi J
JA784A, 85, 86, 87 (delivered fitted)

IOJ lo J
JA788A, 89 (delivered fitted)
JA731A, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 (converted over the last few years)
JA777A (just converted a couple of days ago and now flying again)

Old (Club ANA)
JA778A, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83

I think that is right. Please correct if anyone knows better.

I'm guessing that JA777A was in for a D check and got new seats at the same time; maybe all the others will get converted when theirs become due over the next year or so.

I'm thinking of flying to Tokyo in April but can't figure out which ANA flights from JFK have the new IOJ seating. I'd be flying in Economy so I'd really prefer to use the new seating because I don't like it when the seat in front reclines into my space. Are flights 9 and 10 fitted?

The problem right now is that due to the 787 grounding, there are frequent aircraft substitutions. If you follow the link in the WikiPost at the top of the 787 grounding thread you will know 2-3 weeks in advance whether your operating aircraft has been switched.

Thanks this helps! Has anyone tried the Economy IOJ seats on a long-haul flight? I'm debating between this or JAL's Premium Economy...

Never mind. Decided to go with IOJ Economy instead of JAL Premium Y to save some money.

Yep! As reported here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/20387269-post5.html

Though I'm still surprised at the speed of the announcement...

I just did a dummy booking for NH11 at the end of July (ORD-NRT). Can anyone confirm new staggered business? It shows it on the seatmap, but its not listed in the booking tool. Really appreciate the help!
