    Scheduling Aps - equipment changes?

    Do any of the scheduling aps advise when an aircraft substitution happens? We paid for advanced seat selection (codeshared BA J 789) only to find a few weeks later an aircraft substitution happened & our 'good seats' were not so good. Obviously happens but is there an alert?

    Narita QF21 - Zone A config

    Have had an unadvised a/c substitution for early 2015. Zone A seat map now has only 14 seats. Row 3 has 3x2 and there is no row 4. Is this a Refurb? (I thought Old First had only 14 seats too). Upper Deck row 16 is a two seat row (seems a good choice?). Exit row not available.
