ALL QF's 330's to get lay flight Business seating - Including Domestic
 
Qantas Previews New A330 and B717 interiors

Interesting - ALL 30 330's will get this - both those generally used for Domestic and those for international.

Obviously the Coast-to-Coast competition with VA is hotting up!

So both those generally used for Domestic and those for international.

Looks pretty swish!

I found this bit interesting:

"Uniquely, the seats can be in recline position for take off and landing,
maximising the opportunity for rest."

Being able to sit in the reclined position for takeoff is the case for the Air NZ 772/77W biz seats as well.

I wonder if the 1-2-1 conguration will mean fewer biz seats?

Alas, us self-funded retirees would much rather QF put Y+ on their A330s - especially the ones used for red-eyes to/from SE Asia.

Happy wandering

I can't disagree Fred......

It says from end of next year. By then QF would have most (all?) of the 330s currently with JQ. Are those included in the count?
With these "Skybed Mk3", are we seeing what will be on the next 380 refresh/delivery?

You would probably find on the International Config, it will be around the same. As the seats are likely to be staggered, eg 1A seat next to the Window table next to the aisle, 2A seat next to the aisle table next to the window.

Considering that these aircraft will be used on Asia flights it is disappointing no Y+. Given the low count of Dom 330 aircraft I wonder why QF doesn't just reconfig every plane to a common fitout and just put one or two rows of Y+ in using the old J seats (since they are essentially the same). QF could easily sell Y+ on PER transcon flights.

I think offering Y+ would perhaps cannibalize J cabin sales into PER given how short the flight is. I think a better option would be to perhaps allocate the cabin on domestic flights to P1/WP and fully flexible fares.

I think having all 30 with the same config means they can use them on both international and domestic and so get a much higher utilisation rate. I expect they will do this with the 789s as well.

This looks very impressive indeed - and I would love the product to roll out across more international aircraft eventually!

redslert Sep 2, 13 7:14 pm

Are these angled or 180degrees?

I think it depends on how you want to interpret the words "a fully lie-flat bed" which appear in the product description! ;)
