China Southern 787-8 seating question
 
Im booked in business for YVR-CAN on China Southern in a couple weeks. All seat maps available including Seat Guru and China Southern's own online seat maps show 4 rows of business seats: Rows 11-14.
However, when selecting seats, the map only shows 3 rows (5,6,7) , and has assigned me seat 7A. - Which doesnt exist anywhere on any map...
Expert Flyer shows the same 3 rows.
Very strange. I wonder if there has been a seat reconfiguration on the 787-8? Or is it just an error?

Has anyone flown CZ's 787-8's lately?

I'm going to move this to the 'Other Asian... airlines' forum and notify a moderator there.

Yes, I do realize that. But since China Southern doesnt have its forum per se, and they are still Sky Team (for a short time) I was hoping there were Delta & Sky Team flyers like myself, who fly on China Southern, that I could glean some information. I also posted in the general Asia airlines forum...

Yes. I posted this in the Chinese Airlines Business Class thread 3 days ago.

I canít give you a definite answer, but noticed the same thing. The 787-8 and International A330-200 used to have the same configuration ...1 row first class and 4 of business. But, they both seem to have been reconfigured to just 3 rows of Bus (I flew an A330-200 2 weeks ago on a route Iíve flown several times before and it was 3 rows in Bus for the first time). Please report back after youíve flown.

China Southern 787-8 seating question
 
Just returned from flying China Southern 787-8 and 777-300. Their seating is not accurate yet on Seat Guru, or even on their own site.
YVR-CAN
CAN-SFO
787 has 3 rows of business class 2-2-2 (no first class).
777 has 8 rows of 1-2-1 (no first class)

The hard product was very nice. Service was also good - sad to see them leave the Sky Team as I think they are superior to China Eastern. Transit in CAN was a breeze and the terminal & lounge is brand new.
