Question Scheduled introduction of new business class seats into existing international fleet?

I vaguely recall this being discussed somewhere in the forum, at least some time ago, but haven't found it:

1) Has AA announced a schedule for the introduction of the new CX-style business class seats (the kind that the new 777-300ERs will have) into the existing international fleet? In searching, I've come across references to the introduction of the new seats in the 777-200ERs, but not a timetable. Any idea of when this conversion will start and be completed?

2) In a related vein, will the new seats also be introduced into the 757s and 767s that fly internationally? And if so, when is it expected that those conversions will start and be completed?

3) In other words, will all of AA's international J seats eventually be the new type? And if so, by when?

Thanks for any help with this.

My search string >'-200er', business' constrained to the last year yielded a few threads:

Suffice to say that the timing for completion of refits goes well beyond the booking window available today.

Yep, the first thread is what I was looking for. Thanks!

Looks like nothing will start until 2014. So, certainly, the completion of the refits goes well beyond the booking window...and many other time frames.
