In addition to asking for "compensation", should I try to at least get on CX 465 or 407 which (for right now) operates on a 343?
"343" is a 2-class airplane, if there is some confusion there. It refers to a A340-300, not 3 classes. CX only has F class on its 747s and 777-300ERs. As for compensation, how did you pay for the ticket?

Looks like I'll be on a 33E in the morning.

I asked my client and they used a consolidator to buy the F ticket. Generally, I would use our corporate travel agency to make the booking but couldn't resist when they wanted to use FC for me. (We are restricted to flying in Econ, regardless.)

I see. Yea as you probably know, 33E is the new long-haul config but it will only have Y and J...no F. And that plane could probably be subbed out at any time
