Good for you! My flights are old and small J cabin, so chances of waitlist upgrade to clear are probably not as good as with large J config.

Therefore my US flights been changed to the old cabin, and all my seat selections are gone, so now I stuck in the middle seats, instead 2A.

Any comments on the cabin itself? I have flown previously on the A333's throne seats and the A359 Reverse herringbone, still prefer Apex though.

I've flown the new seats twice (and PE once) - I really like the new seats. I've slept considerably better. I am a side sleeper so the extra width helps noticeably. Also not having a fold in the seat that would poke my hip bone. And sleeping seatbelt is so much better than trying to wrap the old airbag around yourself.

Same here, for sleeping its much better than the old one. A359 old seat, however, is one of the worst J seats I have ever flown in. A333 old seat is much better than old 359 IMO, but yes, Id say the new J is the best seat in AY fleet today. So Id rank them:
1. New J
2. Old 333
3. Old 359

Old 333 2A, 4A, 6A and 8A are the best seats AY can offer.

New J only on night flights, on day flights I prefer the old 333 seats.
