Has anyone flown a 777-200 Refitted SR? It says it's a 2-2-2 config, but refitted so assuming they are 'newish' seats?

The only availability on the dates I need from Tokyo-SIN is from Haneda which uses this plane instead of the A380.


*edit* Is the 777-200 Refitted, better or worse than the A330-300 in J?

I have

Refitted means they've got their wide J seats that flips over to become a bed (not the newest J seat) but it's still miles better than the regional J seat on A330 that does not even go fully lie flat

Thanks sergeyvzn, not looking like I have much choice at the moment. Already have to do the A330 from SIN-BNE anyway...

Cruiser, It doesn't say it's a 200ER, just says 200 Refitted. Either way, I don't think I have any choice. I'll have A380 from LAX-NRT, 777-200 from Japan-SIN, then the 330 from SIN-BNE.

Yes ok sorry - should have read the post closer - check all seat maps here - Our Fleet - 2 x 2 x 2 layout is Weber (regional non flat) seats / 1 x 2 x 1 are Diamond Seats (flip down flat beds).

Managed to book the first J ticket, and also got the A380 from NRT-SIN which was a bonus. Now here's hoping I can get the second ticket in a week or so...

Good news!

Trouble with 777-200's they don't appear in most timetables with subtype, where as with 777-300's there is clear differentiation between 777-300's (773) and 777-300ERs (77W). This means there are four potential configurations - 772's with old regional seats (2-3-2 cradle seats, only used now on short haul unless there are IRROPS), refitted 772's with new regional seats (2-2-2 angled lie flat, similar to 330 seat, although slightly roomier I think), 772ER's with old long haul seats (2-2-2 angled lie flat spacebeds), although most of these have been refitted now, and lastly refitted 772ER's with the new diamond 1-2-1 fully flat design!
