Here is the economy seat map for one of my upcoming flights PER-MEL in Dec.

None of the Qantas seat maps for the A330-200 aircraft show a full 2-4-2 config for row 23.

Is this an aircraft with the the new business seat ??

Without the J cabin, no chance of telling.

You are likely to be on the EBA/B/C ex-QF-JQ config.

Thanks, I guess that's why the seat map is not listed on the Qf website.

Can anyone tell me what kind of J seats are on the ex JQ aircraft?

The same seats that they had when they were flown by JQ.

Thanks for the help everyone.

I cross checked the JQ seat map and also the QF A330-300 map. The last rows of the economy cabin match the JQ but don't match the A330-300.

Looks like its the JQ plane.

Not worth the upgrade!

Sure no doubt. My reference to skybeds was only meant to be relevant if it is actually a 300 series rather than the 200 series the OP noted. The presence or absence of 1D on the J seat map will reveal all.

The OP noted it was a -200 in their first post.

Unless you like 2D. Just a word of warning these planes offer the on-Q streaming (iPads) AFAIK.

I flew on EBC yesterday and Q Streaming is only available in J. If you are in Y, you are treated to the very old school 'main screen' entertainment system.

CSM noted that the first aircraft with new J will be in service 'late December' but that could be marketing blurb more than any real fact.

Keen to receive any intel on when new A330 config comes on stream. QF website says late 2014 for East-West DOM but would really like to know which regos have new J studio for INTL services to MNL, SIN, BKK, HNL, etc.

Me too! I'm in J on QF51 & QF52 in March. Fingers crossed!

QF has released no information apart from domestic from December and International in the New Year

VH-QPA (oldest A330-300) has been in the shop in BNE the last week and is expected to be the first with the new product (is also one of only 2 300s with the new Roo)
Expectation would be that first Intl services to get it would be SIN and HKG, and then I suspect mostly from SYD/MEL, given yield and the competitors product, but who knows, maybe we will get surprised.

Enjoy the iPads! Write a complaint letter after your flight also :mad: about product inconsistency.
