China Southern- Business Class 787-9

Hope someone has some recent experience with the China Southern. I booked through AA but got the China Southern confirmation number and was able to log into the website to select a seat. I am in business class from CAN-PEK and I was able to select a window seat 15A from their online seatmap. However, no matter where I search there is no seatmap that shows a seat 15A as they all end at 11. China Southern's website, seat guru, seat meastro, etc. Its a 1-2-1 configuration.

Anyone have a clue?

​​​​​Yep...I have a clue!! Most seat map places such as seatguru are not even vaguely correct (and havenít been for years) ignore them for China Southern. China Southernís own website also has massively inaccurate or missing seat maps, BUT the 787-8 one is correct in every way EXCEPT the numbering of seats!! In Bus there are 7 rows of seats (11-17). A seats are genuine window seats (I.e. your seat is adjacent to the window and there is a fixed flat surface between you and the aisle). My own guess as to why itís like this is that it mirrors the numbering on their 777-300ER which has First ((Row 1) and Bus starts labelling at 11. There is a kind of method to the madness!! EF has correctly labelled seats.
