EVA goes 10 abreast 777
 
EVA will be changing 777 Y class to 10 abreast. They will introduce it on october 30 on the Taipei-Seattle route.

New configuration 39/56/258 for 77W.

Regards,
A

Someone must be smoking at BR, especially they charge premiums over their competitors. This is true if you're travelling to neighboring countries where I am better off flying LCC with 3-3 configurations in 737s and A320s, pay extra fees for bags and meals.

Argh, I wonder if this decision would have been taken by previous BR management or was long in the works.

But heck, their hometown rival has 10-across on its 777s and historical partner NH has it too...

...I'm definitely sticking to Elite from now on.

Damn, that sucks... i wonder how long it will take before all routes turn this.

as of now, i heard its only for SEA--TPE?

AJones2000 Jul 5, 16 8:06 pm

Thus far. I thought Airline Route said Jakarta was also on the way

longliveKA Jul 7, 16 8:39 am

Blasted bean counters!
There goes my way to earn *A miles.
One more carrier I need to cross from my flying list. Pity as this was the only Taiwanese airline I would trust to fly with.
After KE, AF, KL, LX, CI (for my own safety's reason) and also for 10 abreast, and 787's also on no fly list, running out of options...
It seems only OW is resisting the trend, let's see for how long. QR playing with it, and BA, CX considering...Soon It's going to be A350's, A380's or nothing...

Unfortunate, the 9X was a real selling feature compared to AC out of YYZ to HKG (via TPE). I few them several times and thought the 9X Y was nice. Now there just another cattle hauler like AC.

Sigh. EVA has gradually been reducing space in Y from 33" and 9 abreast, to 31" and 9 abreast, and finally 31" and 10 abreast.

Let's just hope they don't convert any of the current planes to this configuration. They had one of the most comfortable Y seats of any carrier. I hope this high density configuration is only confined to shorter flights like SEA, YVR, CGK, PVG, BKK, HKG. A 15 hour flight from any non-West Coast city to Taiwan in this seating would be pure torture.

Where are you seeing set maps prior to booking?

The fleet facts seat maps have no 10 across diagrams (at least the en-us version of the site).

Does not really matter much to me, as I always fly at least elite. But I would prefer to avoid such configurations just in case "stuff happens".

Seat map has been updated in the reservation system. Also the flight information that shows the seating configuration is a giveaway.

EVA Air 5-star?
 
:mad::mad::mad::mad:

Wonder if it was junior Chang's decison or new chairman's.

The Taiwanese newspapers are reporting that:

1 - this is a trial basis for 1 aircraft to be delivered in September - of course, we know where things go from here...

2 - this decision was made a year ago when they ordered the new 77Ws

3 - it says 20 more seats per aircraft - aren't there more than 20 rows in Y?

So I guess EVA waited to officially announce this after it got it's 5* recognition?
