Delivery of the newest A330 is tomorrow, with TLS-SEA being its maiden voyage.

This is the next A330 that comes fitted with the new Extra Comfort product.

Thanks. Do you have a reference for this?

Just flew HNL to KIX today, 5/13 on N382HA in 12A/B. The 'mini cabin' was fitted with the new Extra Comfort seats. Had no problems with space and legroom even when row 11 was leaning back.

FWIW, I loved sitting in row 12. I would recommend any of the side seats rows 11-13. Loved the privacy away from the main cabin. You are literally right behind F with a small curtain partition. Last to board, first to leave. My favorite.

According to their latest annual report, the last A330 is due in October 2015.

Edited to add: From their 2013 Annual Report - They have firm orders for 8 more 330's and rights for 3 more as of 12/31/13. They took delivery of two 330's in 1Q14 according to their 1Q14 filing.

Does anyone have an idea if HAL will ever bring the A330 to PHX?

I don't think ever its happening anytime soon. The 767-300 is here to stay. They aren't going away.

Just flew a couple of F flights on the 330. No longer a divider between F and Y. Does anyone know whether this is permanent? The F cabin no longer has privacy and the Y paxs use F lav. This is a terrible change, and really destroys the F ambience.

Any plans then to update the interiors to match that of a product similar to the 330's? Thanks for the reply.

As far as I know they are going to introduce at least ipads as PTV's. Not sure whether they are intending to install seats with built in PTV at all.

PHX is said to be one of the last remaining 767 cities. HAL does overnight maintenance there and as a result, the airbus will likely not be scheduled there anytime soon.

Removing the divider (on all 330s) facilitated the creation of the "Extra Comfort" section which has more legroom etc... (on sale from August 1st). From what I'm hearing, they're not happy with the lack of divider situation and are listening to the complaints from guests and employees. As a result they will be retrofitting the planes with something, to return the privacy to F class. I would imagine the bulkhead that was removed will not be returning, but something of a compromise.
