Only the Elite and Econ got refurbished seats. RL does not.

I have flown B-16716 4 times in last two month in RL and can tell you as such.

B-16716 is now frequently used on SFO route. It only got the new Elite and Econ seats but not RL.

Significant because it's on Kitty.
You are lucky. Since B-16722 just got put back on IAH route last week.

So you will get the new RL seats (touch screen control and better screen). But you do lose on lavatory.

I like the 77N HW better than 77A/M.

I suppose you are talking about the 77N->77M retrofit? Do Elite and Y have the new seats that:

1 - there is no more AVOD box under the seat?
2 - with the new AVOD system?
3 - pitch remain the same (not smaller like 77A) and only the last few rows get squeezed with seats?

Thanks.

The Kitty plane uses B-16722 right? There's another plane now since they are doing frequency 7x instead of 4x

I can't tell u 1 and 3. Because I was sitting in RL.

But it did get new AVOD. I played with it for couple minutes while waiting for a friend of my who was flying in economy to come back from rest room.

B-16722 is the new kitty.

For about 2 months it was taken out of Houston and put on Paris:

The seat pitch in Elite remains the same on the 77A. Only economy has reduced seat pitch.

I'm within T-72 and all the bulkheads just opened up via on-line seat selection.

I just moved to 1A "just because".

Well- it was still a kitty fly to Houston- just the old kitty with no wifi.

I don't think 16703 has been retrofitted yet.

surprisingly good.

But may be a lot of customer does not know there is wifi. The retrofitted jet only start to appear regularly since late summer.

not a lot of people using it. plus the flight is red eye both end. a lot of people just pass out.
