The reconfigured A332 comes in two versions, one is distinguishable by the 4th row being behind the galley and doesn't use the B/E Diamond seats. The second reconfigured A332 version uses the B/E Diamond seats and is not distinguishable from the seat map. For updated info, refer to the wiki on this thread.

They've started re-furbishing the A333's, according to N1rotate (I believe it was anyway) they will operate on the LHR route

First A330-300 retrofited in service

The first A330-300 retrofited with new J lie flat seat (A7-AEA) just returned to service operating QR5 to LHR on 30/07.
The configuration is J30/Y265

No, this is the first 3-class A330-300 to be reconfigured. Some of the 2-class A330-300 have already been reconfigured such A7-AEN, AEM, AEG.

Hi, I'm traveling from HKG>DOH 14 march 2016, in a330-200 will there be more refurbished planes on that route by then? And what are my changes I'm in a refurbished plane?

Thank you for the answers.

Currently they have 9 Refurbished A330-200s and 6 non-refurbished. Two non-refurbished will leave, leaving only four. If the current pace of refurbishment continues, then there should be no more angled seats by April 2016. The past 30 flights to HKG all but 2 had flat seats.

dohadosser if you look at the WIKI of The Complete Guide to the Qatar Airways Fleet you will see "332v1: horizontal J WiFi. A7-ACA,B,C,D,E,F,H. To distinguish from other A332, economy goes up to row 41."

Actually as of today from QR Source website, AEA and AEC are refurbished, not AEN, AEM, AEG still showing 275Y.

BTW would anyone find a website with the A333 30J/265Y new seat plan layout to post? even QR own website does not have. I have a FCO-DOH flight 110 coming up showing 265Y on KVS which might predict new layout (#J stays same).

N1Rotate is more knowledgeable than the QRSource when it comes to airframes.

AEN, AEM, AEG, AEF, AEH are reconfigured in both classes too, same layout in business as AEA and AEC but still 275 seats in economy.
