I guess you are implying that J class will be a "fantastic product". Perhaps, based on Qantas' current poor offerings, but not in comparison with other major airlines.

There's nothing new in Y apart from less leg room. That's fine, but you've picked a poor airline to promote. Next time, why not try Air New Zealand?

So confirmed 28 J class seat cabin whether you are on an A330-300 or an A330-200, although configurations are different and obviously a different seat count for Y class.

Once/If it is all done, then there will be a consistent J class product across the A330 fleet? So a last minute aircraft swap between a A333/A332 will not result in a loss or gain of J class seats which is good. Will give them a bit more flexibility to swap A332s and A333s between international Asia runs and domestic transcontinental flights. Speaking of QFd and QFi and future A330 fleets - whatever happened to the plan to split the business units up with separate holding companies, AOCs, management etc? Thats all gone a bit quiet.

So a loss of 8 seats in J for the A333 with Skybed MkI. Might make upgrades a bit harder to come by on my HKG-BNE legs.

Glad to see these new suites finally getting in the air though.

No, a loss of 2 J seats in the 333 if I am not mistaken. The 332's are losing 8 J seats.

NZ, an airline with 10-across in their 773's?

I hope they renumber Y so the rear exit row is the same on all 332 and 333 aircraft (versus 44 and 45 currently used).

Bulkheads for all row 23 seats which is unfortunate.

"For those keen to experience the new cabins these are the preliminary schedules for the aircraft. The first reconfigured A330-200 is scheduled to enter service on 22 December 2014. The first flights will be QF411 between Sydney and Melbourne, followed by QF475 and QF476 on trans-Continental Melbourne-Perth-Melbourne services. The aircraft will fly a similar pattern throughout that week"

I am in J on QF475 on 12th JAN - I hope it will follow a similar pattern for longer than just the 1 week :)

Air New Zealand... Hmmm..... last I saw they had 10 across on their 777. Nah I'll stick with the local offering.

Only one lavatory for 28J passengers on the 332 unless I am reading things incorrectly.......should be interesting on the overnight flights.....

Also looks to be a reduction of at least one lavatory in Y on the 333.

Nice mini-cabin, but perhaps not so good considering the proximity to the Y cabin :p

The lavatory issue on the A332 J does seem to be an issue!

Sometimes I read a post and think 'What The?'. Congratulations, this post wins the 'What The?' award this week. Are AirNZ having a new seat map soon? Flying a new business class on transcontinental Aust flights soon?

The domestic 332's are loosing 8, the international ones also have 30 now, going down by 2.

I was referring to the 36J199Y, but the Recaro domestics are losing 14 seats technically.

Just some bitter people who would have a go no matter what Qantas does.

Yeah, sorry about that, don't know why but thought the international ones had only 2 rows of J behind the 2nd door. But yeah it is 3.

That is a real coughper if you ask me.
'Pax to can' ratio is important especially with all the Champagne that needs to be consumed and everyone trying to change into PJs all at once.
