FOrmer UP Aircraft - reconfigured?

Hi guys,

Just curious if LY has reconfigured their former UP aircraft to be in line with the rest of the fleet?

The reason I ask is that I just booked a few trips to Prague & Budapest and I've been given the PlusGrade upgrade pop up on each of them.
Just a mistake, or do they have J class again?

Cheers,
-Raphael

Still no J to PRG or BUD I'm afraid, and the flights still leave from T1 with no lounge facility.

I expect no change. LY does not face any competition for high yield pax to BUD, PRG, BER, etc. IMHO, this is how they came up with these destinations for UP in the first place. The only thing that will move them to improve anything is competition. Which is yet another proof that LY is an airline that is driven by reactive response, rather than by a development strategy.

Thanks for the clarification guys.

I'm still perplexed because when viewing LY's 737 seat maps, they appear to have a couple of aircraft with all economy, save for the first row on the A side, with J seats. Man, I enjoy flying with LY once in a while, but damn are they ever confusing.
