    Flight Map:
    View my flight map
    Looks to be the 56 Business; 356 Economy 747-400.

    Comparing seat map with availability is giving weird results.

    Only 4 J seats "free" when looking at the seat map, yet J9 D9 C9.

    Y has about 50-60% of seats pre-assigned and Y9 B9 H9 K9 M9 R9 L9 V9 S9 N9

    I find this a little weird too. Would have expected the N and S classes to be less if the plane was fairly full (Remember not all PAX will have a seat given to them at the moment. A good proportion will be given them on the day).

    Anyone else want to comment on the seat map/availability?

    Mal... Sometimes I cannot work out what is going on with QF and their availability...

    One of my colleagues was flying sub-load (partner works for QF so ID90) late last year SYD-LAX and availability was wide open as above, but I phoned through to Qantas and they told me that the flight was 40+ oversold in whY. Needless to say my colleague was bumped from all three flights that day, and ended up on the 2nd flight the following day!

    I would have thought the flight was relatively empty, but I was amazed when I found out how full it was!

    Aircraft for tomorrow's QF175 should either be VH-OJA or VH-OJI, both 2-Class 744s, as you're aware.

    Sorry I can't be anymore specific. Have a good flight.

    For those of you who are interested ...

    QF175 on 03 May 2006 was operated by VH-OJI, 2 Class 744.

    OJI has AVOD fitted and it worked and worked well all the way over to LAX.

    I have done this flight so many times since the beginning of March 06 that I am now on a name basis with some of the crew from the Brisbane base who work this flight!

    Cheers from Detroit for now ... I am off to the baseball!

    Oh, and PS: the less said about Northwest Airlines (NW) the better IMHO
