Have all 777-200LR planes on EK fleet been reconfigured already, or are there are still a few oldies around?

Iím thinking about booking a flight that comes up as being flown on a 777-200LR. But canít find (EK website or seatguru) a 2-class configuration updated seatmap.

If you tell us the route someone can probably tell you if it's the new config, certain routes are getting the new config virtually all the time

All but 1 aircraft have been reconfigured to the new 2-class layout.

The only oldie left is A6-EWG which is being prepared to return to service in a few days. So no matter which -200LR you get, it will have the new cabin layout.

I just flew the 777-200LR on the Santiago-Sao Paulo-Dubai route. I really noticed the slightly wider seats, but was really glad I could snag the bulk-head row. For taller passengers, this is has a much wider "foot hold space" than other rows. Got some good sleep on this one!

Good to know! However, it doesnít mention that the flight has ICE and a few other flight amenities that show up on other flights.
