And the people in Y get the added benefit of knowing that the people in the front will get a good nights sleep. That should make them feel real good. ;)

QS planes get new OZ seats with larger IFE screen and AVOD, and IME I think the newer seats are a bit more comfortable and offer one of the best sleeps in whY.

I flew one of the QS planes last year SFO-ICN and it had the old seats in Y. If they were going to change the Y product I'd think they'd be smart enough to do it when the plane was in for the J change.

So are they using the old monitors/seats for AVOD? According to OZ all QS planes have AVOD in Y.

Apparently, because the Y seats I flew in were the old ones. I could have sworn it was QS up front but then maybe not, I flew it in July 2010.

I don't think QS was on SFO-ICN until after August as the press releases were in August last year; I'm thinking your plane probably had old C and Y.

Great news for those of us buying business class tix as there are west coast USA to pretty much anywhere in Asia for mid-$4k range, including the SFO and LAX routes with the new seats. I snagged SFO-ICN-HGH and PEK-ICN-LAX with all but the ICN-HGH segment in the new seat, for $4660.

I distinctly remember seeing the QS seatmap on the online seat selector but then again, it was 9 months ago so my memory is pretty foggy. But my plane definitely had old Y.

Flew ICN-PEK this morning on 772 and got bumped up to C with QS seating, a first time for me since I never fly to the US.

Nice enough seat, especially liked the big table that is used as a screen when you want privacy. However, I wouldn't be able to sleep comfortably on long-haul (am 188cm). Screen also not the best when cabin was bright, but the new AVOD menu is better than then one on 747 etc.
Not too impressed really, and my seat was already a bit worn and felt flimsy.

But a great touch with the new over the shoulder seatbelts that I didn't know how to fasten, so the stewardess almost had to sit on my lap to fasten it :D

Interesting. Did they require you to wear the shoulder belt?

On my flight a few weeks ago, I did notice the slot (?) near the top of the seat back for a shoulder belt, but I did not see any actual belt. And there was no mention of it in the safety video.

On my QS flight it wasn't enforced, they just looked across you lap and nodded. Granted it wasn't too long after QS came out.

Yes, they required all passengers to wear it on this flight at least.
Good thing I'm a bit clumsy:D

LAX in F or SFO in J???
 
Have a choice of flying ICN-LAX in F or ICN-SFO in J (QS in May as far as I know). Connecting onwards so gateway doesn't really matter but flight experience does...

Which one is better?

OZ F, although customs at LAX will suck, both seats are comfortable but OZ F catering and service are definitely better than OZ C catering/service. Since the flying experience is only what matters, I'd say do OZ F on the 744.

Anyone able to advise if Asiana has kept to the roll out flight schedule of the new C seats as posted on their site? I am scheduled to be on the first LHR-ICN departure on 1st June. Have requested seats and they advised that it wasn't a Smartium aircraft but am hoping that they just haven't updated the seat map. Anyone out there with additional data points?
