    Is the LAX/AKL still a 3 class flight? I got my seats changed to rows 1 and 2. Alos any tips on a cheap upgrade for my domestic economy from Ayers Rock to Sydney. I am flying business all the way apart from this sector. Or will I have to pay the full whack - but then again perhaps it is not worth it.

    I did some seat searches for you, and for any date I chose the planes were standard 2 class 747.

    If something goes wrong with a plane (or plane servicing is required), your plane could be substituted with a 3 class one. You may get moved around if this is the case....

    Thanks Mal. A couple of weeks ago it was a three class aircraft hence me changing my seats. If it is back to 2 class then I will have to ask nicely at checkin if we can change again so my wife can sit next to me. In First we wouldn't have anyone sitting next to us and didn't see it as a problem being one behind the other. However in strcitly business, it's different.

    As I posted in the Open Discussion forum, check the business seat map for your flight. 1A&2A=2 Class, Row 14 = Dreamtine seat.

    volley, your LAX-AKL flight is still a 3-class service sold as 2. Not much more time until your flight so hope it stays that way for you.

    I still have a feeling though that your seat allocation hasn't moved from 2A/3A......i'd suggest that it's double checked using CheckMyTrip. Supply it your Booking reference and surname and it'll show your current seat allocation. If the seat allocation isn't closed/blocked then it will show your a picture of where you are and what else is available.[/b]

    Sorry guys - a senior moment there. I did indeed change to 2a and 3a and those are the seats that are allocated to me. That website CO BNE gave me is good! I never knew itg existed. So if the aircraft changes, that website will show it to me???

    Now that I know the correct date (2 Aug), I definately agree with everyone else that it is a 3 class sold as 2.

    The map shows that 2A and 3A are taken, so I assume that is your seats. As CO BNE said, check checkmytrip for more details.

    The flight on the next day (3 Aug) is a 2 class 747. Equipment changes could happen at any time though...

    If the equipment changes then checkmytrip should change. However that depends on the reasoning for the equipment being swapped. A 747 going "OOO" at the last minute isn't going to be reflected there.

    Since when wasn't there a 2A in the F cabin in zone 1 on a 3-class 744? Could still be a 3-class, sold as a 2-class flight.

    Dave, agree with the 2A, 3A point. but if there is a row 14, then it has to Dreamtime seats and that means 2-class since all 3-class have been Skybeds for some time now.

    Absolutely correct; I mis-read a post in another thread. :oops:

    There still was a minor confusion with 1A/2A and 2A/3A but that's all been resolved now. :)

    volley, enjoy your travel and good luck with getting that flat bed. Things can change; even at a couple of hours notice. Here a link to a Thread (of mine) on FlyerTalk where I was doing the same thing, but my A/C config was changed at late notice.

    :D

    Volley, an update for you. Still a 3-class but someone has vacated from row 3, so 3E/3F are open if you wanted to change yourself to that.

    Hi guys - just thought I would let you know that have started the RTW trip - from LHR on Thursday - and we got upgraded to F by BA. Travel agent had remark in the booking that it was our 30th wedding anniversary. What a nice surprise for the start of our epic adventure. BA does have a heart after all!!!!
