That is a big plus for me. I too think it looks different, similar seat fabric though.Dave Noble said:It looks different to me plus ( iirc) the new bed is 6" longer than the old
I have a May booking and the seat maps (E/F & BA MMB) do not correspond to any generally published plan.jasonja3 said:A work colleague flew SYD-BKK on friday night, and said the new J seats were installed... I thought this might be a little quick..... anyone else seen them?
I would call them version 1a rather than 2. They are exactly the same configuration, and style. FWIW the following +ves and -vessimongr said:I hadnt really checked these out before - they do look somewhat different - but at the same time still look the same :/
I forgot about the quilts - they are really nice. So are the pillow. I flew regular Club World last night from LHR to Cairo, and it is still good (screens tiny tho), but it really reminded me that the new Club World is so much better.Anna said:I flew SYD - SIN in Club World a couple of weeks ago and was not particularly impressed. There was no separate queue for First and Club World boarding. The purser in the Club World cabin hardly cracked a smile for the whole flight and acted like everything was just too much trouble for her and life would be so much easier without passengers. The attendant spilled a whole glass of Kir Royale over me - luckily I was wrapped in the new "plush cotton quilt" at the time which took the impact - but then the purser told me that there were no more quilts so I would not be able to have a replacement. (The attendant did rustle up another one from somewhere eventually). Food was ok, not better than that. At least the AVOD worked, unlike on the QF return flight.
The small screens are just an unfortunate feature of a few aircraft. Most have full size screensadrian said:I forgot about the quilts - they are really nice. So are the pillow.

I thought those screens seemed small. I just did the return CAI-LHR yesterday (old club world), and the screens were the larger size. However, the screens in the new club world seem a size bigger again.Dave Noble said:The small screens are just an unfortunate feature of a few aircraft. Most have full size screens
