Garuda Not Selling Biz Seats on DPS-BOM-DPS With an A330??

Was wondering why Garuda is not selling business class seats when they are running their mainline aircraft to/from Mumbai (BOM)?

Anyone have any idea?

I called up (probably the LHR GSA) who said they haven't got a clue, as the flight (which now runs 3x weekly) will be downgraded in March to 1x weekly - and on that flight they are selling the business cabin.

They suggested that maybe Garuda sold those out to a travel partner?? Does this happen?

Then whose metal is it?

Who is operating for GA?

And where can one buy the J seats?

This route will be temporary suspended from 31MAR19 to 19APR19. Upon resumption on 20APR19, 2 of 3 weekly service will be operated by all-Economy class 360-seater A330-300, replacing 2-class A330-200.

Still have no idea how Jet Airways got involved - Flight24 is reporting all PK-GPx aircraft being used - Jet's are JT-xxx, note.

If using the all Y class 330 avoid the first cabin where business class was previously , the seat width is awful especially at the front of the cabin

And the seat pitch is substantially less as well!
