I hope the seats are fabric and not leather (or synthetic "leather").

Lots of changes since the initial design.

As for the leather v fabric.

The top-picture looks all leather, the second picture only the headrest looks like leather.

Sadly (for me - I prefer cloth), the seats on display in SYD T3 today apear to be leather. I would assume the display matches the actual

Do I spy a new look Kate/Jack Spade kit?

Agree on the fabric preference to leather so that would be a shame.

Introvert's Dream

Wish they had the option of dropping the wall between seats for those rare times I'm travelling with someone or want to visit with the person beside me.

Totally agree as someone who usually travels with my other half, but understand why they have done it also. The other option would have been a couple of honeymoon seats in the centre.

Second row looks different from first one. The seats seams to be closer and no divider.

Both rolls have dividers, its just on the the other side of the console, you can faintly see the top of it in the picture.

The divider is there - the seats are staggered/ or offset every other row.
Thus there will be a true window seat, and then the row behind it will have the console next to the window.

Is there a rollout schedule? Have a trip planned on QF in June '15 (HKG-BNE-MEL) and am hoping it'll be available.

The only schedule information published is Domestic from Dec 2014, and International from early 2015.

Whilst I would expect HKG and SIN to be the more likely to have the new product, I doubt enough planes will be done by Jun-15 to guarantee it on the routes (particularly HKG-BNE)

I'd have 100 % absolute certainty that you won't find it on HKG-BME....

I have trips between SYD and BKK in March and May next year. I'm feeling safe in the knowledge that although the ticket says Qantas the passengers will mostly be supplied by Air Bogan and I'll be sitting in old J seats

So long as TG keep their old J seats on that run , then there's little reason for QF to prioritise BKK.
