I flew VA to LA this week and the CSM told me (I did ask) that VA recently signed off on the new international J class seats. It will be the herringbone style seat (love it or hate it). She indicated it will be different to Air NZ's product and that they're all very excited about it VA's decision. Thought I'd share this with you all.

P.S. Did I post this in the right area?

I'm surprised it is the herringbone style config. Would love it if they did something similar to EY

And the speculation begins. :cool:

I would hope it offers all aisle access (which a herringbone config would).

Was a time frame mentioned? I'm flying J LAX-MEL in Oct. Guess that would be a bit ambitious :|

As it doesn't seem like VA have actually announced it yet, I think it's a little ambitious. Although SQ recently had a very short timeframe between announcing their new J seat and rolling it out.

She indicated Dec for the first aircraft with the remaining fitted in 2015 but she couldn't confirm 100%.

Let me just say , i have changed my sceptical thought in the last 45 mins on this happening . I think its now the case of watch this space.
Whatever. I'm just passing on what was said to me by the CSM who quoted that the new seats were signed off by VA two weeks ago. She was told the news only the other day. We will all have to wait and see!

VA CSM on my return flight today confirmed the new J Herringbone seats are coming. Also worth noting that the J bar will go.

I wonder if they can actually get this done before QF even begins refurbishing the A330's!
