739 business rows

Flying on a 739 from ATH to AMS tomorrow. Currently in row 4. According to seatguru, business is rows 1-7 but according to the KL seating chart for my flight, itís only rows 1-3. Is this just an inaccurate seatmap thatís Seatguru has?

All 73X aircraft have a movable curtain, the size of J is determined based on the need and usually gets changed around T-72 to T-48

...yes, usually it is the other way around. Until T-72 or so only one row of Economy comfort is available (that is the bizz seats that have more space, but sold as Economy comfort with all 3 seats occupied. Often you see there are more Economy comfort seats available as initially when you are closer to the flight date.

That's the default configuration for the 737/738 as they only have 6 rows with extra leg space, the 739 have 10 of those, I only ever flew it to TLV where they use a fixed configuration of 6 J rows no matter what so not sure what would be the typical configuration otherwise. (I'm guessing 7J rows as per the KLM website seatmap and reduced based on capacity at T-72)

I regularly take a 739 CPH-AMS.

You are right, the default configuration is seven rows of J and three of EC until T-72. At that point J almost invariably shrinks, often to the minimum of two rows.
